General Information

The FFC Co-Ed U15 Soccer League is for youth aged 12-15 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.’   Size 5 soccer ball recommended. Games with goalie will be played 8 v 8 format.

Our Fall League begins in August and the Spring League begins in April. Registrations are available one 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.
