Nurture your child’s athletic side by enrolling him or her in O’Fallon’s exciting soccer leagues for kids ages 4-14.

“In addition to getting healthy exercise from head to toe, kids will have fun making friends, developing their ball-handling skills, learning team strategy and playing the game,” said Alyssa Groeteke, Recreation Coordinator for O’Fallon’s Parks and Recreation Department.

Starting March 21, an eight-game series will be played on Saturdays between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. at O’Fallon Sports Park. Parents can register kids in coed leagues for ages 4-5, six and under, and 14 and under. Or, they can choose girls’ leagues or boys’ leagues for ages 4-5, six and under, seven and under, ages 8-9, and 10-11. Eligibility is based on kids’ ages as of August 1, 2014, but youngsters turning four by May 16, 2015, may participate in the 4-5-year old league.

The cost per child is $65 for O’Fallon residents and $73 for non-residents through Wednesday, February 4, with a $12 late fee will be charged after that date. Registration ends February 19 or when the league fills, whichever comes first. Each player will receive a soccer ball, jersey and socks to keep.

Parents who volunteer to coach will be eligible to have one child’s registration fee reduced, and also receive a free, one-hour coaching clinic courtesy of former Olympian Jamie Swanner at K.I.M.
