Outdoor Soccer

Outdoor Soccer registration will begin May 6 at 8am!

Outdoor Soccer is for youth ages 5-14. Teams are coached by VOLUNTEER COACHES, typically family members of a child on the team. The program is about skill development, sportsmanship and fun! This year, the season will run for 8 weeks July through August.

  • Practices are one-hour once a week for all divisions
  • Games typically take place on Saturdays between 9am-3pm
  • Fields used include:
    • JDHS Turf Field (Downtown): 5-6 & 7-8 year olds
    • Dzantik’i Heeni (Lemon Creek): 9-10 year olds
    • Mendenhall River School (Valley): 5-6 & 7-8 year olds
    • TMHS Turf Field: 11-14 year olds
    • Adair-KennedyTurf field (by Floyd Dryden): 11-14 year olds
    • Dimond Park Field #4 (by Riverbend School): 9-10 & 11-14 year olds

League play for Outdoor Soccer is divided into coed and girls divisions with town and valley locations. Divisions for 9-10 and 11-14 are combined town/valley teams. Please note that divisions and locations may be combined if registration numbers are low. This mean that divisions split by gender may become coed and if there are not enough registered for the town location, they will be folded into the valley.

General Information

Parents, spectators, and guardians should abide by the code of conduct during games and practices. Sports can be an emotionally charged environment, and sometimes our emotions get the better of us. Yelling at referees, coaching from the bench or saying negative things about the children playing is prohibited.
Please remember:

  1. These are kids
  2. This is a game
  3. Coaches are volunteers
  4. The Referees and umpires are human
  5. Spectators should cheer for everyone
  6. No college scholarships will be handed out

Adults should model positive behaviors: cheer for good plays, regardless of who made it; treat the coach as an ally and help out where you can; and be respectful to other adults, children, officials and the coaches.

At the conclusion of the season, please take a moment to evaluate your coach.

Thank you for volunteering; the season wouldn’t happen without you! Here are a few items to help you get started:

Ball sizes:

  • Size 3: Ages 5-6
  • Size 4: Ages 7-8 & 9-10
  • Size 5: Ages 11-14

At the conclusion of the season, please evaluate your players. This will help us form more evenly matched teams next season.

All coaches, parents/guardians and spectators must abide by this Code of Conduct. Failure to do so may result in you being asked to leave.

  • I will not yell at officials, coaches, other adults or my child while they are playing
  • I will not ridicule anyone involved in a youth sporting event
  • I will not curse or use abusive language
  • I will not coach from the sidelines
  • I will not use any form of electronic media (Facebook, Twitter, etc.) to harass, verbally assault or bully any member of the Parks & Recreation program
  • I will not disrupt coaches during meetings, games or practices
  • I will demonstrate good sportsmanship by being supportive of all players, coaches and officials at every game, practice or youth sport event.
  • I will remember that this program and game is for kids, not ADULTS
