Recreational Program

Recreational Soccer is for boys and girls in grades 1 through 8.

Grades 1 & 2 (U8) will play games on Saturday mornings at Malerbo Field in Burlington and sometimes in Harwinton.

Grades 3 through 8 will play games in Burlington and also in towns such as Farmington, Avon and Simsbury as part of the Farmington Valley Rec League (FVL). FVL games are usually played on Saturday mornings but there may occasionally be a Sunday game as well.

All towns playing in the FVL will now be following the new Birth Year age guidelines when forming teams. For the Fall 2018 through Spring 2019 seasons, girls and boys teams will be formed as follows:

U14 = Born 2005, 2006 and 8th graders born in 2004
U12 = Born 2007, 2008
U10 = Born 2009, 2010
