J.L. Long 6th grade Spring Soccer registration time is here! League play is through the YMCA. The team is co-ed and open to anyone attending JL Long or any nearby school. Players can be of any skill level including beginners. Registration is now through February 21st. The Spring teams first practice will be on February 17th and scheduled games will begin Saturday March 5th.
The team will consist of 14+ players and will be co-ed. Everyone will have a chance to play! The team practices are at Randall Park across from Woodrow Wilson High School from 4:30 PM to 6:00 PM on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Games are mostly played on Saturdays. Under UIL Rules, sixth grade students cannot participate in school team sports, so this is a fantastic opportunity for children to stay active. We will be abiding by any YMCA and other mandated C-19 regulations as needed.
This Spring, we are inviting 5th graders from our feeder pattern schools to play as well. If we get enough players, we may have 2 teams this Spring!
