Parks and Recreation Soccer -  Come Join the Fun!

Fayetteville Parks and Recreation has an AWESOME youth soccer program! This Recreational Program emphasizes an environment that is fun for all ages and skill levels. Every child is guaranteed to play at least half of each game, while learning the basics of soccer and good sportsmanship.  

Our recreational soccer program is for girls and boys ages three to seventeen. This program is part of Fayetteville Parks and Recreation’s GoodSports recreational programs where fun is emphasized! The season begins with two or three practices, followed by playing two games per week with another mid season practice or two. All players registering with Fayetteville Parks and Recreation are randomly assigned to a team based on age. Volunteer coaches are screened and trained by Parks and Recreation. Players who sign up for both the fall and spring season will remain on the same team for both seasons. In our program, the games belong to the kids and the top priority is fun and improvement.

First Touch Participants:

Our First Touch Program is an introductory program for three and four year old children. A varitey of activities and drills are used to introduce the fundamentals of soccer. Children in First Touch will play Mondays & Saturdays, Tuesdays & Saturdays or Thursdays & Saturdays depending on the group assigned. Each session consists of 20-25 participants and is instructed by Parks and Recreation Staff. First Touch meets on field 'C South' at Lewis Soccer Complex.

U5-U12 Participants:

Practices and games are held on Saturday mornings and one night during the week. Game times are based on age group. Please note that due to the number of U5 and U6 Boys teams, they are divided into two leagues, the RED league and the BLUE league. If your team name is B-Wizards, you are in the Blue league. If your team name is listed as R-Union, your team is in the Red league.

U15-U18 Participants:

Because our oldest league plays teams from all over Northwest Arkansas, the season starts later than our younger age groups. Your coach will provide a schedule when he/she contacts you. Games are typically played one night a week and on Saturdays.

*U15/U18 soccer schedules vary. Participants will be contacted by their coach regarding schedules.

SPONSORING A TEAM                                             

During the Fall 2013/Spring 2014 seasons, we had 150 teams and over 1400 individuals participated in the Fayetteville Parks and Recreation Youth Soccer League. Soccer provides boys and girls the opportunity for physical, mental, and social growth in a positive family environment. Parks and Recreation needs your assistance with the expense of the youth soccer program. Sponsoring a team puts your company or business logo on that team's jerseys. This is a great way to advertise your business to families of Fayetteville. Last season, 32 local businesses sponsored a team, and we hope to have even more this year.  For more information regarding sponsorships, please click the email link at the bottom of the page.

2014-2015 Sponsorship Form

In addition to our local sponsors, the youth soccer program is supported by Land O Frost. For more information on the company and deals for soccer families, visit the Land O Frost icon below.
