SMYO Soccer

We offer recreational soccer for children 4 - 18 years. 

The purpose of our recreational youth soccer is the development of the soccer playing ability of the child.  Safety, fun, and player skill development are the focus of the program.  Regardless of the ability of a child, everyone deserves an equal chance to play and to learn in a safe, positive, and supportive environment.

Our recreational program is a part in-house league and part county league.  These teams are all coached by parent volunteers.  SMYO offers both Spring and Fall leagues. Registration for these seasons typically closes in mid-February (for Spring soccer) and July (for Fall soccer) respectively, so be sure to register early.

As part of the registration, each player receives:  full uniform (jersey, shorts, and socks), available skills programs, at least 8-10 soccer games, and end-of-year tournaments (Spring only; schedule permitting)

Spring March-June with Registration - December through mid-February

History of Soccer - a form of soccer has been played for centuries by many cultures.  Today's soccer began in England in 1863 when several organizations gathered to form a set of rules, similar to the 17 laws of the game that we play today.  The laws of the game are governed by the Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) based in Switzerland.   FIFA was founded in 1904 and rarely changes the laws of the game, instead issuing interpretations/explanations.  For more information about the rules, please read the Laws of the Game.  
We refer to the game as soccer, but this game is known as football around the world.
