FALL & SPRING SESSIONS
The U5 through U14 Recreational League Season is divided into two 8-week sessions. The Fall Session begins in September typically on the Saturday following Labor Day weekend and runs through the end of October. The Spring Session begins play in April and is completed by the first or second weekend in June. We cannot guaranty that all 8 games scheduled for each session will be played. Weather is always the determining factor. All games are played on Saturdays at Lippold Park. Game times range from 8 AM to 4PM.
TEAM GAME SCHEDULES
Schedules for each team are posted on your player's TEAM WEBSITE which is accessed through your account. Schedules are posted approximately 2 weeks prior to the first game
Team practices usually begin about two to three weeks prior to the start of the first game. Practice times and locations vary and are determined by the coach. Since practice schedules vary from coach to coach, CLSF does not keep a record of individual team practice schedules. Teams typically practice twice weekly for about an hour beginning in the late afternoon or early evening at a local park or school.
SPECIAL REQUESTS AND TEAM PLACEMENT
CLSF will make every reasonable effort to accommodate special requests for teammates or coaches. We also try to roster together children from the same school or neighborhood to facilitate carpooling.
Girls high school rec teams play a session that begins in late summer and ends in October. For additional detail see Age Groups menu item.
Each youth player U5 to U14 will receive a jersey, shorts and socks. Players are required to wear shin guards, soccer appropriate shoes (no baseball or football shoes are permitted), and to provide their own ball. Age groups U5 through U8 use a size 3 ball; U10 though U12 size 4; and U14 size 5.
No jewelry of any kind INCLUDING EARRINGS may be worn during games and should not be worn during practices. Medical alert bracelets are permitted.
If a player needs corrective eyewear during games, only "rec specs" are permitted. No street glasses may be worn. Shaded rec specs are permitted.
Cast may be worn in Rec League games provided a doctor's release note is made available to the referee before each game, and provided the refereee dertermines that the cast is safe. At a minimum the cast should be wrapped with slow recovery foam padding secured with an ace wrap and athletic tape.
