No doubt the warm weather has everyone excited about playing outdoors this spring, but don't forget the fields don't open until April and even then, rainy days can spoil a planned evening of soccer!
We have two leagues offered in late March where teams can enjoy 5 game nights and a chance to compete for end-of-season awards, all for a discounted price of just $300.
B-League will play on Mondays, Rec League teams play on Tuesdays. Register your team today!
