JP Children's Soccer was started in 1978 as a parent-run, all volunteer league — and continues to this day as such!

We offer three levels of soccer practice on three days of the week. You choose which day works best for you and sign up for the level based upon  your child's age.

All practices last @ 1 hour (including snack) and level 3 "games" last about 1 hour as well.

Level 1: meets once/wk for kids ages 3 1/2 to 4 1/2
Level 2: meets once/wk for 4 1/2 to 5 1/2 year olds
Level 3: meets once/wk for 5 1/2 to 6 1/2 year olds with "games" on Sundays at 3:00 pm

Practice time options:

  • Wednesday at 4 PM
  • Thursday at 4 PM
  • Saturday at 9 AM, 10 AM or 11 AM

Team Parents: Along with 3 coaches, each team needs a team parent.  Basic team parent duties include bringing snack to the 1st practice, giving out the t-shirts to team members and having parents sign up to bring snack to future practices.  You do need to have access to e-mail to be a team parent. Please volunteer as a coach or team parent when you register online. You can download Team Parent Guidelines and additional Team Parent Information under Forms.

Level 3 Sunday Games

In order not to put too much time requirements on our volunteer coaches, and in keeping with our grassroots, laid back, kid focused philosophy, our Sunday "games" for level 3 kids are ad hoc, come if you can, work it out together events.

It looks like this: Decide amongst your team, during your practice day, if you have a quarum who would like to show up for the Sunday game.

It requires that a coach or team parent (or two) commit to bringing the equipment and run a game. Parents help out!

When you get there: get together with the other adults and decide who plays whom. If there aren't enough teams to play each other then break your team up and play yourselves. If there's not enough kids on one team to play anybody else then play pick up style incorporating players from other teams.

Game Guidelines:

-Try to tone it down. We'd like all the kids to have fun and enjoy the sport, not just the “winners”
-Try not to keep score.
-Play small games, 3 on 3, or 4 on 4. This way all the kids get a chance at the ball. If you've got too many kids on your team then break up in to two games.
-Sub kids in every few minutes. This way you can have up to 7 or so kids per team effectively.
-Try to keep the ball in play….kick ins are not necessary.
-No goalies
-Have fun!
