Changes to US Youth Soccer beginning with the Fall 2016 season

The Academy is designed to develop young soccer players through their formative years and to give them all of the ingredients they need to succeed in the game at the highest level. Players from an early age need to acquire the technical ability to master the ball and be proficient with both sides of their body. Players are placed into age and ability groups to train with expert professional staff, in addition to their core team. The coaches and staff of JFC will teach and develop these players to have the confidence, and the technical ability to enjoy the game and be successful at which ever level they find themselves upon their graduation from the Academy.


Through guided discovery teaching methods, the Academy program challenges each player to creatively solve problems that only the game itself can provide. It is the Academy's primary aim to make soccer FUN so that the vital ingredient of enjoyment is achieved at all times.

You may register online for the JFC Academy program thru our website. The cost is only $50 for the 6 training sessions run by the JFC Academy staff. The player must play within the JFC recreational program to be eligible to participate in the JFC Academy program. Registration information about our recreational program is available on the front page of the website.

2020 Spring Recreational Soccer

This program is recreational soccer for children of all ages for children born in in 2006-2016 (Under 4-Under 14). Every team is coached by parent(s) volunteers. We encourage all parents to get involved.  

Opening and closing dates of season:

The game season will begin with an opening jamboree Saturday,  January 25 for those with birth years of 2016-2010 (Under 4-Under 10). 2006-2009 (Under 12-Under 14) teams will begin around February 15. 

Closing jamboree for the season will be Saturday, March 21, 2020 for those born in 2016-2010 (Under 4-Under 10). 2006-2009 (Under 12-Under 14) teams may play until the end of April. 

Regular season games for all players born in 2010-2016 (under 4-Under 10) will be on Saturday mornings and Saturday afternoons. Due to Upward basketball, for the first few weeks of the season, games will be played as much in the afternoon as possible for the age groups effected by the overlapping season (mainly U7-U10 - birth years 2010-2013).

The ONLY games to be played during the week will be the occasional makeup game due to rain, and the week preceding spring break, where everyone will have a game.

Games for players born in 2006-2009 (under 12-under 14) vary with days and times. But you can expect to play games occasionally on Monday and Saturdays for girls and Thursday and Saturdays for boys. 

Practice times for ALL ages are determined by individual coaches.
