CAYS Rec Soccer

Recreational soccer is designed to introduce beginner players to the game of soccer and teach the fundamental skills of the game. Players are divided equally among the teams based on their skill level, and will receive equal playing time during games. Coaches will focus on player development and improvement throughout the season. Practices will be held one night per week and games will be held on Saturdays.

The Rec Soccer Program will provide playing opportunities for youth who are too young, do not choose, or are unable to play in the travel program & teach fundamental soccer skills in a nurturing, fun environment.

The fundraiser is REQUIRED for all participants and the fee will be collected at the time of registration. This fee can be refunded upon completion of the fundraiser.

The age groups are determined by the year your child was born. For the 2021-22 soccer year age groups are as follows:

Fall season runs from mid-August through the beginning of November.

Spring season runs from mid-March through the beginning of June.


Practices are held once a week for an hour on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday. No practices are held on Fridays.

Games are held on Saturdays between 9am and 3pm (times vary each week). One or two games may be scheduled during the week between 5:15-7:30pm depending on the number of teams in each age group.


All practices and games are held at the George B. Stuart Athletic Fields, located at 1213 Rockledge Drive Carlisle, PA 17015.

No smoking is allowed at the fields including the parking lot and the bathrooms.


Every child who is registered by the deadline will be placed on a team. We hold evaluations that help us determine each player’s ability level and make teams with mixed abilities. No evaluations are held for the U5 and U7 divisions.


Following the evaluations, CAYS staff forms the teams based on the evaluation scores and schedule requests as indicated when you registered. Our main goal is to make the teams as even as possible, and we do not focus on keeping teams together from one season to the next.


Shin guards are mandatory for all practices and games. Your child should bring a soccer ball to practice (see below for correct size). Soccer cleats are not required but are strongly recommended over sneakers (baseball cleats are NOT allowed). Players are encouraged to bring a water bottle to practices and games.

  • U5 & U7 – Size 3
  • U10 & U13 – Size 4

The registration fee includes a jersey, administration fees and field maintenance/upkeep/lining and equipment purchases. The fee for U13 also includes referee fees.


The fundraiser fee is collected at registration for all participants. The fees are $30 for the first child, $15 for the second child and $0 for any others.


Yes, you can. If you complete the minimum requirement for selling sandwiches, your fundraiser fee will be refunded to you.
