Rec Soccer Spring Registration

Organized into three programs for kids ranging from U4 – U18. SRL (Salem Rec League) is open to all kids within the appropriate age group, regardless of previous soccer experience or skill level. The SRL is a great place for players to learn the game and to make new friends.

Weather permitting the U6 and Above Recreation League plays a two-season schedule, with 7-8 games in the Fall and 7-8 games in the Spring. Our TOT program is Fall or Spring only and generally runs 6-7 weeks.

In the fall, we hold our annual picture day. The Fall season is typically early-September to early-November.

In the spring the teams participate in our annual jamboree and  receive their trophies or awards. The Spring season is typically mid-April to mid-June.
