Online Registration for the Fall 2016 season is now closed. We will be sending e-mail confirmation of your team assignment and practice time within a few days. If you missed registration please read on for what you can do to get on a team.
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 9/14 at 4 PM or Sat 9/17 from 9 AM until 11:30 AM. This is the only way to get on a team now, but it is first come first served (i.e. wed for best chance). You will be able to join a team right away so come to registration with your child and have them ready to play. You will also need cash or check for $25. We will have the registration form there for you to complete. Right now we have space at most times and levels. We do not appear to have a Level 3 team on Wednesday’s.
What is JP Children’s Soccer?
JPCS is a laid back, grass roots, community based kid-focused league. We emphasize fun activities and positive reinforcement along with team and community building. Our coaches are all volunteers and have a wide variety of soccer experience and personal styles. As long as the children are having fun, we are being successful.
How do you get involved?
Please read this and other pages in our here to get as much information about the league, our mission and how to register.
The Fall Season runs from Wednesday September 14th to Saturday November 5th at Pinebanks Field (see our FAQ page for a map). Registration will close on Friday, September 2nd. The earlier you register, the more likely you are to get your 1st choice practice time. We can’t 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 us 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.
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.
There is no Saturday practice or Sunday games on Columbus Day Weekend (October 8th and 9th).
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.

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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.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 email@example.com.
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.
