General Information

The FFC Co-Ed U12 Soccer Fall League is for youth aged 10-11 of any skill level in the Stark County area.  In each of our soccer leagues, we seek to teach our players the game of soccer in an age appropriate, healthy and encouraging environment.  We believe that there is such a thing as ‘healthy competition.’ 

Our Fall League begins in August and the Spring League begins in April. Registrations are available a month prior. There will be a short devotional time where we share biblical principles with the players and encourage them to pursue a life with Christ every week. The season will conclude with a league celebration that includes food, fun, participation awards, and league champion awards.

U12 Division Games will be played with an 8 v 8 format with a goalie. A size 4 ball is recommended for practices and will be utilized during games.

 

 

League Dates:  August 21 – October 29, 2021

 

Fee: $60.00 per child (includes jersey)
Refund Policy: $5.00 fee retained if refund requested.  No refund will be given to any player who withdraws after the second week of practice. An exception may be granted at the discretion of the staff due to medical reasons only. Further, no refund will be given to any player removed from the league during the course of the season for disciplinary reasons.
