Fall soccer league

This entry-level soccer program is for youth, in grades 1 to 8, who live or attend school in Somerville. Travel players are eligible.

About

Teams will play games with surrounding towns in an intertown league administered by Bridgewater Recreation.

This is a recreational soccer program, but we encourage commitment from all participants. Players who are late and miss practices or games may get less playing time than players who are more committed to the program. We form teams by grade and will not switch children between teams.
