Norton Youth Soccer | Spring Recreational League
For Pre-K - Grade 8 Players

NYS is offering a recreational outdoor spring program which is open to all players
ranging from pre-K (DOB 1/31/20 and later) to eighth grade, excluding those already on a NYS competitive travel team. The program will kick off end of March and will run through early June. It includes one weeknight practice and Saturday morning games at the Norton Middle School soccer fields. The cost is $100 per player with a multi-child discount for families. 

Age groups will be formed based on the number of registrations, but our goal is to have age groups/games be based on two grade years, i.e. grades 3 & 4 together, and to have separate boys' and girls' teams (subject to appropriate registration numbers).

DEADLINE FOR REGISTRATION is March 15th. Space is limited and available on a first come, first served basis. To register, go to and click on the Registration link on the left. If you are interested in coaching or volunteering for any other positions, please don't forget to check the volunteer box during registration. All head coach volunteers will receive a $20 credit to be applied against registration fees for future programs.

If you have any questions, please email the program director, Chris Anderson, at
