No Snacks

Due to the increasing number of food allergies, we are discouraging snacks at halftime and after the game.  If you feel your child needs anything more than water during a game, please provide a healthy snack for your child only.  Please remember to send your child with adequate hydration.

Free Balls
This year we have a sponsor for our balls,
Forest Orthodontics & Pediatric Dentistry

U5, U6, and U8 balls will be given out at uniform exchange, not at Kiddles.
Balls for the U10 divisions will be distributed either through the coaches or through Kiddles. U12 and U14 players should pick up balls at Kiddles. You should know your team number for pick up at Kiddles.

Jamboree Program for U5 Players
Experience the joy of soccer with your 4 year old!

Jamboree One with One is the combination of two different formats that, put together, provides the best possible introduction to soccer for our youngest players. In AYSO soccer, a jamboree means that groups are formed on a weekly basis depending on how many players attend a given session. One with One refers to the concept that each player will have a parent (or other adult) working with them on the field.  Jamboree is played on Saturday afternoons.
