2024 Spring Rec Soccer Program: Registration is now OPEN (2/15/24 to 4/5/24)
Spring Rec Soccer (2024) at the Plainville Town Park (142 South Street, Plainville, MA) is designed to be an instructional program for children ages 4 years old (Pre-K) through 4th grade. Children will learn the fundamentals of soccer including dribbling, passing, shooting, gameplay/rules, and more! Each age group will meet for one hour every Saturday for practice and games at the Town Park.
If your child will be playing t-ball, baseball or softball, there may be a scheduling conflict between the two programs. Please note this on your sign-up form! The Park Department and the PAL will do our best to work together to try and accommodate the schedules so children can participate in both programs.
Dates: The Spring Rec Soccer program will run from April 13th (weather and field conditions pending for the start date) through June 8th (9-week program). Two weather-related cancellations are factored into the program fees. If there is a 3rd rain-out, or we have to push the start date due to weather/field conditions, we will add a make-up day at the end of the season.
Age Groups: 4 years old (Pre-K) through current 4th graders (Boys and Girls)
Cost: Program fee: $70
Registration: February 15th to April 5th, 2024
***PLEASE NOTE there will be a 1-day time/schedule change in the SPRING season once the PAL opening day parade date is confirmed****
PAL parade will start at the town park, and I will push the rec soccer schedule/times later in that day to accommodate players and families that participate in both youth programs. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
Our program's 1st day is scheduled for April 13th (pending weather and field conditions). The following is the current schedule, but it also depends on the total number of children registered in each age group for the program before we can finalize the scheduled after registration closes. Once registration closes a final schedule will be emailed to all parents for the full season schedule.
- Pre-Kindergarten: 9 to 10 am
- Kindergarten: 10:15 to 11:15 am
- 1st grade: 11:30 am to 12:30 pm
- 2nd through 4th grades: 12:45 to 1:45 pm
The program meets at the Plainville Town Park each Saturday for 1 hour. 4- and 5-year-olds not in Kindergarten should sign up for the Pre-K group. All other children should sign up for the grade they are currently in. Players should bring a ball and wear shin guards and socks to the program. Cleats are optional. Soccer balls will be provided weekly for those who need and additional equipment such as cleats and shin guards may be provided through our limited donations. Please reach out with any equipment needs! Pre-K, Kindergarten and 1st-grade groups use a size 3 ball. 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grade use a size 4 ball.
If your child will be playing t-ball, baseball, or softball there may be a scheduling conflict between the two programs. Please note this on your sign-up form! The Park Department and the PAL will do our best to work together to try and accommodate the schedules so children can participate in both programs.
