The House Program is designed to provide a venue for the recreational soccer player to learn fundamentals while developing self-esteem and teamwork. The House Program hosts about 85 teams ranging from U8 thru U14 for both boys and girls. The two seasons consist of approximately eight weeks of division games that begin the weekend after Labor Day with girls' games on Saturdays and boys' games on Sundays. All house teams will participate in the Jimmy Kinsella House Fall Tournament at the end of October. The spring season begins in mid April (weather permitting) and continues through early June.
The goal of the House Program is to provide players of all skills and abilities an opportunity to learn the game of soccer along with other children their age. The teams are formed based on age, grade, and ability with an equal number of players rated appropriately by their coaches from the previous season. Travel players who also choose to play in the House Program are distributed equally amongst the teams.

Fall registration pricing will be $125 for the U6 division and $175 for the U8-U14 divisions per player.
