Welcome to the Buckeye Soccer Association’s Recreational Program Home Page.

 

recgirl-140x170recboy-144x170The Buckeye Recreational program serves youth ages 3 to 14.  It is designed for players to practice and play against others within their own community.

Our volunteer coaches goal is to provide everyone an opportunity to play in a fun, yet appropriate competitive environment regardless of skill level and have the opportunity to develop core skills and an understanding of the game.

 


 

Session / Seasons:

The soccer season is from August through June. The season is comprised of two sessions: the fall session is played from August through October; and the spring session is played from April through June.

Players who register in the fall may register for the fall and spring sessions at the same time (at a discounted price). Players who register for the spring session are only registered for the spring session, and must re-register if they wish to play in the fall.

Registration is annual; in that, players must register every fall for the upcoming soccer season.
