SAA Rec Soccer 2019/20 Registration is now closed and will reopen in February 2020. Practices can begin August 26th and games will begin the weekend of September 7th & 8th. The final scheduled week of games will be Oct 26th & 27. Kindergarten (Coed) and girls play Saturdays and boys 1st grade-8th grade play Sundays. If you sign up for fall, your child is automatically signed up for the spring and will be on the same team. Practices are held twice per week, M-F, 5:30 or 6:30. As days shorten, 5:30 practice times are to shorten to allow 6:30 practice times a reasonable amount of time to practice.

Each team is required to make a team snack order each week, it is recommended that $20 be taken for each player at the beginning of each session. A snack parent/committee for each team is suggested.
