Note: When purchasing cleats please ensure there is not a cleat at the toe of the shoe. While most cleats will work for most sports, soccer requires that there is no toe cleat for safety purposes.
U6-10 games are held on Thursday and/or Friday evenings. U12 games are held on Saturdays.
Game times are dependent on overall registration and space is reserved by City of Eagle Parks and Recreation.
Weeknight game start times will take place between 5:00pm – 7:00pm.
Schedules will be posted a minimum of one week prior to the games beginning.
Games are held at either MERRILL PARK or GUERBER PARK.
Note: U12 teams will participate in the local Outback League/League America presented by the Idaho Youth Soccer Association and play U12 teams outside of the City of Eagle program. This league plays games on Saturdays and games take place both in Eagle and surrounding communities. Families within U12 must be willing to travel outside of Eagle for Saturday games e.g. Star, Middleton, Kuna, Nampa, Caldwell.
Practices are held one evening per week. Teams will hold three total practices prior to game play. Times and days are determined by the volunteer coach.
Typical start times are between 5:00pm - 6:30pm. Run times vary between 45 minutes and 1.5 hours based on age and field availability. For example, a U6 team may practice 5:00pm-5:45pm while a U12 team may practice 6:00pm-7:30pm.
City of Eagle Parks and Recreation holds designated practice space and assists with assigning practices at Merrill Park and Guerber Park. As a general guide, though it may vary, U6, U8, and U12 teams will practice at Guerber Park and U10 teams will practice at Merrill.
Note: U12 teams may practice two evenings per week should field and coach availability allow.
Within registration you may provide information regarding your child's potential team placement. Teams are formed based on the following order:
- Coach request
- Teammate request
You may list multiple players. Be sure to list first and last names to the best of your ability.
- School your child attends or is nearest to your home.
You may list your child's school to be placed with others from the school. Private schools, charter schools, virtual schools, and homeschool can be listed as well and players from those schools will be placed together. Please keep in mind these options may not be in your home area and, due to overall enrollment, may have limited participation. To default to your home area simply list the closest public school.
- Available roster space.
If no information is provided players are placed where need exists.
If you learn that a friend or neighbor is playing after registering, simply email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the player or coach name to be added to your registration information.
Note: Practice requests are not accepted. While we appreciate that families have busy schedules, we cannot accommodate these requests.
Players new to the league will purchase a $20 uniform kit which includes reversible jersey, shorts, and socks.
Returning players may utilize their uniform from previous seasons. Returning families must remove the $20 fee during checkout and indicate this in registration.
Note: While socks are included in the uniform kit and all players' socks must match during play teams are welcome and encouraged to provide matching socks of other colors and/or designs to establish an individual team identity. For example, the “U8 Girls Pink Cheetahs” wear bright pink socks with black spots. Provided jersey and shorts must be worn for games but socks can be creative!
