Soccer - Sign-ups for 2020 Season

In-person sign-up sessions  for ABC's youth recreational soccer program (2020 season -- for Individuals and Teams) will be held in the Rudy Room at ABC Ball Park on:
  • Sunday, June 28      -- 12:00 to 4:00 pm
  • Wednesday, July 1   --  6:30 to 8:30 pm
  • Sunday, July 12        -- 12:00 to 4:00 pm
Who can play?

Boys (age 4 through 13) and girls (age 4 through 17) are eligible to play.  Players MUST be at least 4 years old BY September 13, 2020 (opening day for ABC soccer).  Only recreational level teams play in ABC's soccer league.  See the soccer age chart for specific age divisions and date cutoffs.

There are no residency requirements to play in ABC's youth sports programs.  ABC Ball Park is a not-for-profit private youth sports organization and is collectively owned by the families whose children participate in its sports programs.  If you can get here, you can play here!

We do all we can to place everyone on a team, but eventually teams do fill up (even newly created ones), so we cannot make an absolute guarantee of placement on a team.  Registrations are processed in the order received, so the sooner you sign up, the better your chances of being placed.

What is the cost?

There is no initial cost to register as an individual player at ABC.  Players pay their share of the team fee when placed on a team.  Team registration fees are:
     $375 - U-6 (4 and 5 year old training league teams - 4 on 4) – 10 game season
     $550 - U-8 (6 and 7 year old training league teams - 7 on 7) – 10 game season
     $775 - U-9 and U-10  (8 on 8) – 12 game season
     $925 - Older than U-10 (U-12, U-14, HS - 11 on 11) – 12 game season

Photo ID Cards

Photo ID cards are required for all soccer players.  Those needing a photo ID card for the upcoming season must come to one of the ID Card sessions scheduled prior to the season.

Bring the following:
  • Proof of age (birth certificate, expired ID, etc.)
  • $5.00 for the cost of the ID card
  • The player (preferably with a smiling face!)
ID cards are valid for 3 years.  ID cards used for other ABC sport programs are valid for all ABC youth sports.  Let the sign up session staff know if you have an ID from another sport or an old expired ID (it can be used in lieu of a birth certificate!).
