Rookie Plus (Outdoor)

Rookie Plus youth soccer league focuses on skill development, fun and a sense of team in a semi-competitive environment, with volunteer coaches. Scores and standings will be kept. Our rules have been adjusted to ensure better parity and limit the ability of a team to “run up the score”. All rookie-plus divisions will practice 1-hour per week and have a game on Saturday. If needed, make-up games or tournament games may be played on Fridays.
