General Information

The FFC Co-Ed U13 Soccer Fall League is for youth aged 10-12 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, and league champion awards.

U13 Division Games will be played with an 11 v 11 format with a goalie and two 30 min halves. A size 4 ball is recommended for practices and will be utilized during games.

 

 

League Dates:  August 27  – October 29;  End of Season Celebration Friday, Nov. 4 at 6pm.

 

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.

 

Registration: Registration for Fall League will be available online Friday, June 10 and brochures will be available in the church brochure racks, Friday, June 17.  Registrations will be accepted online with debit/credit card and paper registrations will be  accepted at Welcome Desk with check/cash.    Deadline to register August 24, unless league fills up before then, whichever occurs first. PLEASE REGISTER CHILD IN THE DIVISION ACCORDING TO WHAT THEIR AGE is ON SEPTEMBER 1 OF 2022 FOR FALL and SPRING SOCCER. Any deviation from the age standard requires prior permission from the league director.
