ELIGIBILITY AND GUIDELINES

Who is eligible for House Soccer?

All children can participate in the VYS House Soccer program (see birth date guidelines) regardless of ability.

When can I register?

All players who register on time for the fall and/or spring season are guaranteed placement on a team in their appropriate age group. Late registrations (new and returning players) will be placed on a waiting list and placed on teams where space is available or pending the identification of new coaches and the formation of new teams.

How are teams formed?

House Commissioners form teams, based on the number of volunteer coaches and assistant coaches. Commissioners use neighborhoods and schools as guidelines in their attempt to create a division having teams of equal strength so that all players have a fun and safe experience.

How many practices a week will my child have to attend?

Number of practices per week depend on the child’s age and team division.  Get more information about Divisions.

When does the season start?

In general, the Fall season starts in September and ends mid-November. The Spring season starts late March and ends mid-June.
