We are thrilled to announce the return of our ASC Summer League Clinic! This year, we are offering a player-centered 5-week league, organized and led by our Director of Coaching, Paige Forster, and her team. They will be responsible for player safety, league coordination, team formation, and overseeing each game.

Program Philosophy:

Our summer league offers an alternative to the structured Spring and Fall leagues. This relaxed, no-pressure environment allows players to focus on developing their technical, social, and communication skills without the stress of team or individual status, or coach/parent pressure. It’s all about having fun and learning in a supportive setting.

Players will have the chance to experiment and learn from their experiences without direct coaching, fostering independence and peer communication on and off the field. This enhances their awareness, game understanding, and problem-solving skills. Although it’s a “league”, results are not recorded as this is “pick-up” style.

Teams are not pre-formed; they will be picked at the field and will change weekly. This approach allows players to experience different team dynamics and challenges, promoting their soccer social skills. Coach Paige will ensure competitive balance by selecting players randomly.

Important Information Before Registering:

Participants must have been registered for the Fall 2023 and/or Spring 2024 Arlington Soccer Club season for insurance purposes. This is non-negotiable.

Summer Schedule:
The league runs for 5 weeks, with each player playing one night per week. Games are 50 minutes long (25 minutes per half with a 5-minute halftime break). All games will be played at Thorndike Field. (In the event we need more space we will also use Magnolia Field)

Please note if your child is aging out of 8th grade, they are still eligible to participate in the 7th&8th grade group.
Further details on arrival times will be provided after registration. Note that the schedule is subject to change based on player registration. If numbers allow, boys and girls games may be combined into the 5pm-6pm time slot, but the days and age groups are final.

Player Absence:
We understand players might miss some games. No need to inform us if you can’t make all five games; you can still sign up and play, but we will not offer a prorated rate.

Player Uniforms:
To keep costs low, we won’t provide new uniforms. Players with grey and maroon jerseys should wear them (bring both). Colored pinnies will be provided for those without jerseys. Shin guards and soccer cleats/shoes are mandatory.

Spaces are limited, and registration is now open. Registration will close on July 6th. Please use the link: https://secure.adminsports.net/arlingtonmasoccer

Use your existing family account to confirm your player’s eligibility (must have played for ASC during the 23-24 school year). Register for the grade your child will be in for Fall 2024.

For example: Child is currently in Grade 2, going into Grade 3 in Septembre (Fall). Then you are eligible for Tuesday, Grade 3&4.
