Welcome to JP Childrens' Soccer!

Online Registration for the Fall 2014 season is now closed.  If you have already registered we will be sending e-mail confirmation of your team assignment and practice time within a few days.  

If you did not get a chance to register there will be a limited amount of Walk On registration available at Pinebanks Field the first day of the season for each practice time,  Wed 9/10, or Sat 9/13.  This is the only way to get on a team now, but it is first come first served (i.e. wed for best chance).  Some of our times are closed or have limited availability at many of the other times and levels:  

Level 1: Wednesday Closed and 11 AM Closed

 Level 2: 10 AM Closed

Level 3: 10 AM Closed 

 

Please read all the pages on this Website to get information about the league, our mission, how we operate and how to register.  All your questions should be answered here.

 

***************************************************************************

The Fall Season runs from Wednesday September 10th to Saturday November 8th at Pinebanks Field (see our FAQ page for a map).  Online registration will close on Friday, August 29thThe earlier you register, the more likely you are to get your 1st choice practice time.   We can not accept any late registrations.

The season is 8 weeks, with a one hour "practice" for all the teams, held on Wednesday at 4 PM or Saturday at 9, 10 and 11 AM.  One key for every season is volunteers to be coaches and team parents.  Please consider taking on one of these roles.  We are always in need of coaches, particularly for our Wednesday teams.  We also offer a registration discount for coaches.  

Please read through our 5 Things to Know listed at the top of this page as well as the About JPCS and FAQ page to learn more about JP Children's Soccer. 

Equipment - No special equipment is needed for any level, but some parents do get shin pads and turf shoes for the older kids.  

There is no Saturday practice or Sunday games on Columbus Day Weekend (October 11th and 12th).   Level 3 players may also come to an optional scrimmage on Sunday Afternoons at Pinebanks at 3:00 PM.  Level 3 coaches will be there to coordinate the games. 

Registration Age Guidelines  

3.5 – 4.5: Level 1  (sorry, no exceptions to the minimum age)

4.5 – 5-5: Level 2  

5.5 - 6.5:  Level 3

The cost for the season is only $25 and we are an all inclusive league with no set boundary lines. Children from all neighborhoods and towns are welcome.

Now if you are ready to register go to: www.jpcsregister.com

Parents/Coaches – New regulations for the City of Boston require us to certify that all coaches and other personnel involved in the league have been provided training regarding head trauma. This will be in the form of an on-line video that we will ask all volunteer coaches.  If you want to get a jump on the training please link to the CDC video; CDC concussion training.  We realize it is long, but we and other sports league will all be required to certify that you watch it and that you are engaged in the prevention of head trauma in partnership with us.  We will also post more information on this when registration opens.  

If you still have equipment and need to get it back to us please let us know with an email to contact@jpchildrensoccer.org or send a message to the coach coordinator.   

JP Children’s Soccer has a long history of supporting children in the community and this is all based on the volunteer coaches and team parents.  Our Leadership Team is also comprised of volunteers and we are always looking for new additions to the leadership team to take on roles that allow us deliver this popular program to the JP Community.  If you are interested in joining our team please contact us as contact@jpchildrensoccer.org

We always need new coaches and we count on many of our previous volunteers to return. Thank you! Our league depends on its parents! NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY AND YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE THERE EVERY WEEK!  WE STAFF EACH TEAM WITH AT LEAST TWO COACHES.
