Equipment Needed:

Shin guards are required, cleats are encouraged

U8 - U12
Shin guards and cleats are required.

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.    


Games for all divisions may be held on either Thursday or Friday evenings.  Games are dependent on overall registration and space is reserved by City of Eagle Parks and Recreation.    

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.  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.        


Practices are held one evening per week.  Teams will hold three total practices prior to game play.   Times are determined by the volunteer coach while taking into consideration the needs of the team.  

Typical start times are between 5:00 - 6:30.  Run times vary between 45 minutes and 1.5 hours based on age and field availability.  For example, a U6 team may practice 5:00-5:45 while a U12 team may practice 6:00-7:30.      

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 and U8 teams will practice at Guerber Park and U10 and U12 teams will practice at Merrill.  

Note:  U12 teams may practice two evenings per week given field and coach availability.  

Team Formation

Teams are formed based on coach request, teammate request and/or the school your child attends.  If you so choose you may list the public school closest to your home for placement with those in your neighborhood.  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 Dane at dknickrehm@cityofeagle.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. 


New players 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.  

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.      

Coaches are volunteers!  Please consider volunteering today!

Coaches who complete the background check process and who attend orientation receive a $20 rebate on their child's registration at the conclusion of the season. 

All coaches are provided resources and tools to be successful.  Our goal is to make you great and support you throughout your time with us.

This league can ONLY run with parent volunteers and it is our goal to ensure you feel prepared, supported, and ready to lead our players to a fun season!
