League Schedule: This sessions run 6 weeks.  All players should bring a size #3 soccer ball and must wear shin guards and bring a water bottle. 

Eligibility: Child must be born between the dates (6U only) indicated on the age matrix in the registration center and reside within the school districts of Williamsville, Amherst or Sweet Home schools. No exceptions for age or residency are made.  Any child born before these or after these dates are not eligible for this program.

Snacks: At the 6U level, parents should bring their own child’s drink/snack. No "team snack" will be provided. Please bring your own water or sports drink.

Teams: We will not have formal teams, leagues or scorekeeping. Soccer will be geared toward having fun, socializing, with a little learning about the game of soccer. We respect and understand the attention span and physical limitations of the children in this age range. This program is not about making polished players, but instead, it is our hope that the kids will have FUN, become a bit more fit, and learn about themselves and others through the game of soccer. We will be instructing the children in basic rules of the game and the fundamental skills of the sport.

At this age level, A RESPONSIBLE ADULT IS REQUIRED TO STAY DURING ALL SESSIONS since we don't have the capability to contact you in the case of a problem with your child.   Please keep this in mind when registering.
