House Soccer

Recreation Soccer Overview (Ages 4-19*)

Recreational soccer is a great environment for fun and learning basic soccer skills . Any players new to the sport that are considering joining a recreational team should be made aware of the following:

  • Rec soccer is very affordable if you are interested in joining the sport.
  • Playing time is guaranteed. Every player who registers will play equally regardless of ability.
  • No tryouts are necessary to join a team. Players are randomly placed on teams. 
  • There are minimal practice days and recurring weekly games, making it easier on the family schedule. 

Age eligibility is based on the year in which a child is born. For example, in 2019, a child with a birthday in the year 2009 is eligible for U10 age group or older. Participation in younger age groups is not permitted.

* Consult the NYSWYSA Age Matrix for any question about age level of play. Be mindful that, in House Soccer, certain age groups may span two or three years to comprise a single team. Contact us with any question, as proof of age is required to participate.
