The 11U through 19U Recreational Program is a team/league based program for players born between January 1st, 1998 and Dec 31st, 2007.

Registration Fees: $105 - before the registration deadline January 22nd; $130 - after registration deadline

Spring Dates: 
March 26 - Practices can start
April 7/8 - First weekend of games
May 19/20 - Last weekend of regularly scheduled games

Game Times (these are general and are up to the league as they schedule):
 
11U - 12U: Primary Sunday afternoons starting at 1pm (possible Saturday overflow)
13U - 14U: Primary Saturday afternoons (possible Sunday afternoon overflow)
15U and older: Primary Sunday afternoons starting at 1pm (possible Saturday overflow)
These times and days are determined by ISA who schedules the league and could change. 

Practice Times:
Practices are held 1 to 2 times a week and are scheduled by the volunteer coach. Days and times are determined by the volunteer coach. 

Description: Volunteer coaches conduct practices once to twice a week at a local green space with their team and then games are played on the weekends (7 games total). Players will also receive 2 practice per season coached by the VSA Recreational Staff and are eligible for other recreational clinics/events. 

For 11U and up teams, we do our best to maintain whole age groups or even 2 year age groups. Depending on the numbers sometimes we combine age groups to create teams. In the ISA Central Level 3 League we can also register small sided teams where 13U and up teams can play 6 v 6. The number of players on a roster and the way they are grouped is all dependent on the number of players that register in each age group.
