When do the Leagues play?
-The 2 Coed leagues play winter and summer seasons, the two seasons typically run from December-February (Winter Coed) & June-August(Summer Coed).
-The other five leagues play spring & fall seasons: Fall Season runs September-November & Spring season runs February-April.
In any given season, you may join a single team in as many of the leagues for which you qualify by gender and age. For example, a 45-year-old man may play Men’s Open, Men’s Over-30, and Over-40. A 35-year-old woman may play Women’s Open and Women’s Over-30. The Over-40 league is primarily a male league, but there is no gender restriction and women do play in this league. This league plays shorter halves on smaller fields with no referees.
Slide tackling is not allowed in the over 30 or over 40 leagues. All leagues except over 40 play 90-minute games on full-sized soccer fields.
New players who do not have a team at the time of registration will be assigned to a team prior to the start of the season. The team rep should contact that player regarding the player pass and other team-related information.
