Youth Leagues Overview

The Sports Academy offers Recreational and Competitive Youth leagues in an effort for teams of all skill levels to have competitive games. We offer Recreational and Competitive Leagues. We are the only facility in the area to offer both levels of competition.

We believe it is very important for youth players, coaches and parents to have a positive and fun environment. To that end, we carefully place teams (and players) in the proper divisions, based on our experience, and institute sportsmanship rules to aid teams if the skill levels are mismatched.

Some children begin playing club soccer at 8 years old, while others may wait until 10-12. We create the two youth leagues to ensure even skill and competitive games for all teams.

Competitive League

This league starts the first week of January each year and typically fills-up very quickly.
