South orange Soccer
South Orange Recreation and Cultural Affairs is partnering with Cougar Soccer this fall to launch a new fall soccer recreation soccer program. The partnership with Cougar Soccer will allow for recreation players to have high quality soccer training and attend Cougar Soccer’s summer academy.
South Orange Soccer registration is by birth year, not age or grade, in conformance with revised New Jersey Youth Soccer rules and regulations.
South Orange Soccer is a fall recreational soccer program which offers a wide range of opportunity to players at all levels in the fall season. There are no tryouts. Teams are formed randomly and participate in the Suburban Youth Soccer League against teams from nearby communities. The SYSL divisions include U9, U11, U13 and U15 as follows:
U9 division includes players born in 2014
U11 division includes players born in 2012 and 2013
U13 division includes players born in 2010 and 2011
U15 division includes players born in 2008 and 2009.
FALL SEASON: The fall soccer season is tentatively scheduled to begin late August/early September. Players will be contacted by a volunteer coach regarding team placement and their schedule in mid-August. All teams practice with professional trainers once a week (time and day to be determined by registration levels) and generally play one game per weekend.
REGISTRATION: Soccer registration begins July 15th and children are enrolled on a first-come, first served basis. The registration deadline is July 30th OR when the program full, whichever comes FIRST.
REGISTRATION FEE: $275. This fee includes a $20 per player fee that is dedicated to future field restoration and improvements. All players receive a complete uniform (shorts, jersey and socks).
VOLUNTEERS ARE NEEDED! Our success depends on having a sufficient number of volunteers to assist in a variety of ways, both big and small. If you can help out, please register on this website in the Volunteer section.
