Registering your child
When registering your child, be sure to do so in line with her or his grade level in 2018/19, and to update any information that you may have entered in the system in the past.
Registration is online (click on the “registration” link, below) and is open from June 4th - July 9th. The fee is $65. Late online registration is open from July 10th - August 15th (fee $100). Registration will remain open between August 16th - September 11th (but the fee increases to $150).

Rec Soccer needs you!
Our programs are run entirely by volunteers. Parents – please consider signing up as a coach or an assistant coach. You can do so when you register your child. Coaching is fun and easy (we provide coaching plans). There are other ways in which you can contribute to Rec Soccer, too. Please email the Co-Commissioners (firstname.lastname@example.org; email@example.com) if you have any questions.
We also need referees. Referees must be at least 13 years old. Those aged 13 will be awarded community service. Referees 14 years and older are paid.
