Express Recreational Soccer

Welcome to the Express Recreational Soccer Program!  We annually serve over 1700 children from grades Kindergarten through 13. Players born between 9/1/2018 and 1/1/2006 are eligible for the 2024 season. We emphasize fun, skill-building and sportsmanship. All children play at least 50% of the time during the season and the teams are organized with a goal of enabling children to play with kids from their same school or neighborhood. Rec soccer is parent and volunteer-driven.  We need parents to coach and sponsor the teams.  Without volunteer coaches, the league cannot function.

Express Soccer Club offers a FALL PROGRAM of 10 to 11 games. The season begins the weekend after Labor Day.  All players receive a uniform (jersey, shorts, socks.)  Registration will open in Spring 2024, with discounted registration and continues through the spring and summer. Registration officially concludes June 30, but late registrations are accepted up until the start of the season. We can place everyone as long as we have enough volunteers and sufficient players to fill a roster. Again, the engine that drives the program is VOLUNTEER COACHES. Please VOLUNTEER to coach.

Our teams are based on grade level through middle school (high school teams are based on year of birth) and there are four playing formats to promote player development. Micro soccer (Kindergarten) play 4 v 4 without a goalie.  Juniors (First Grade) will play 6 x 6. Second, third, and fourth graders will play 7 v 7 with a goalie. The 5th and 6th graders play 9 v 9, with regulation 11 v 11 soccer beginning at middle school. The smaller sided games give each player more touches on the ball and 'touches on the ball' is how they improve.
