Co-Vid Update: March 7, 2021.
Youth sports leagues are approved for return to play. Current restrictions limit spectators to two parents or guardians per athlete. Besides the two parents or guardians per athlete, no other spectators may attend. All spectators must follow guidance from the NJ Dept of Health including wearing a mask, observing social distancing and staying home if sick. We will also implement all modifications required for our players, referees, coaches, and spectators to remain safe and healthy. Full refunds will be available to any family that does not want to participate with the modifications which we implement or the attendance restrictions. Families who do not adhere to the 2 spectator restriction will be removed from the program. For your planning purposes, fields/locations listed below are tentative. However, dates/times are generally accurate.
There are five different age divisions for the Spring season. Divisions are split by gender and age. Children age 3 to 18 (as of August 1, 2020) are eligible to participate.
