Separate leagues are available for players in kindergarten, 1st-2nd grade, 3rd-5th grade and 6th-8th grade.

All players must attend a clinic and register at the Parks and Recreation department by Sept. 3.

The soccer program teaches fundamental sports skills in a fun, positive atmosphere that emphasizes skill building, coordination and socialization, said Steve Corry, recreation coordinator.

Nearly 300 players participated in last year’s program.
