The Referee meeting for the fall rec season will be on Sunday August 24th at 7:00pm at Jacob's Northeast park at the garage. This meeting is mandatory for anyone who is either a newly certified referee or a returning referee. This meeting will last about 1hr and will cover scheduling and expectations for the fall season.
Please contact me with any questions about either the new referee training or the fall season meeting.
I look forward to working with you in the quickly approaching fall season.
We are excited to tell you about the new change to our program for the U11, U12, U13 and U14 players in the fall of 2014. We are joining the Riverbend Soccer League for these age groups. Based on member input, we will be making the change this fall. This will allow us to have a smaller difference in age for this division. We will have a U12 division, (U11/U12) and a U14 division, (U13/U14). Currently, we average three teams in this division for fall and four to five teams in the spring. By joining this league, our teams will be able to play multiple teams from other soccer clubs instead of the same team multiple times.
We will host some of these games on our fields. As a result of teams from other clubs being in this league, our teams will be required to play some games on their home fields. The teams in the league currently are Moline, Rock Island, Port Byron, Sherrard/Orion and Galva.
The cost to play for this age group will remain the same. The cost to play Rec soccer will be $100.00 which does include the $30.00 fundraiser. We are looking forward to this exciting opportunity for our Rec players to have new competition. If you have any questions, please contact our rec coordinator at
