Register to play the world's most popular sport!

Recreation soccer has two seasons. The Spring season runs from April to June with registration from January through March. The Fall Season runs from September to November with registration from May through August. All kids are guaranteed to play at least half of every game in Recreation Soccer.

 
Youth age 4 through 4th grade participate on teams within the ABGC.  The minimum age for participation is four years old.

  • Pre-kindergarteners (Mitey Mites) and Kindergarteners play with 4 players on the field without a goalie.
  • First grade has 5 players on the field, including a goalie;
  • 2nd graders, 6 players;
  • 3rd graders, 7 players; and
  • 4th graders, 8 players.
Every player is guaranteed playing time of at least half the game. Mitey Mites and Kindergarten are co-ed; there are boys' divisions and girls' divisions for the other ages. Teams are formed geographically when possible. Practices are once per week. Parents may request that their child play with particular persons and/or coaches. The registration fee does not include the cost of the uniform. Players who are "young" for their grade level may request to play with the next lower grade teams if the player's age falls within the usual age for that grade level.

A Soccer Festival for all players ages Pre-K through 2nd grade is usually held at the end of the season on the artificial turf field at Mason District Park.

Important Note: Travel Soccer players cannot register for Pre-K to Grade 4 recreation soccer.


There is a commissioner who oversees each age division. All teams at these ages practice one hour once a week and have a Saturday game weekly. Occasionally, there will be a Sunday afternoon game. Uniforms are purchased through the ABGC office.
