With more than 6,500 players participating each Fall and Spring in league play, the recreational soccer program is the cornerstone of the Arlington Soccer Association. Players register and are placed on teams within one of our neighborhood soccer clubs, based on elementary school enrollment or geographical location. The recreational program provides quality soccer experiences for players, both boys and girls, from kindergarten through high school age. Anyone of any ability and level of income is welcome to participate. Parents, and other volunteers, coach the teams to provide a fun and educational environment through scheduled practices and games. Equal playing time is guaranteed and all players are welcome!
What are the dates of the season?
The fall season typically runs from mid-September through mid-November
The spring season typically runs from mid-April through mid-June
What ages can play rec soccer?
We organize the rec league by grade level. Rec soccer is open to all kindergarten through high school aged players. If your child is between the ages of three through pre-school, they may be eligible to play in Arlington Soccer's Mini Soccer program.
How are teams formed?
Arlington Soccer attempts to place players on teams based on school enrollment, when possible. If a player cannot be placed on a team from their school, then they are generally placed on a team in the same general geographic location in Arlington.
How often do teams practice?
Teams generally practice once a week, with some older teams deciding to practice twice a week. However, the vast majority of teams only practice once per week for an hour after regular school hours.
Where/when will my child's team practice?
We try and assign practice space to teams based on the geographical makeup of their team. However, exact practice locations and times are decided by the team coach and their club manager and this can vary across teams.
When are games?
Games are normally played on Saturdays during the season, with the occasional Sunday afternoon game when needed.
What are the game formats?
Kindergarten: 4v4, no goalkeepers
