The Glen Cove Jr Soccer League offers a Fall and Spring intramural soccer program for boys and girls aged 6-14, with a typical participation of 700-800 children per year.
This is a perfect opportunity for children to have their first experience in organized soccer and learn the sport in a fun and non-competitive environment. The program is typically led by parent volunteers and community members. It is a great option for children who want to play soccer without the time commitment of a travel program.
The Fall Intramural Program runs for 7 weeks from September to November at the Glen Cove City Stadium. Players are eligible if they are currently in Kindergarten through 8th grade. Games are played twice a week (Saturday and one on a weeknight). Most teams will also practice once per week, especially at the start of the season. Boys and girls play in separate divisions.
Pre-K and Kindergarten (Co-Ed) play only on Saturday, usually in a 3 vs 3 game format with a parent/coach on the field with the players.
The Fall season ends in an all day round robin style tournament. Each team plays three short games. For this single day in the season scores are recorded and standings are kept. The two most successful teams in each division meet for a final game. All players receive a participation trophy with additional awards for Sportsmanship and to the winners of each division final.
The Spring Intramural Program runs for 8 weeks starting in April. Our program has grown in popularity and has over 300 players each year. The games are only on Sundays. While some teams have a practice during the week, most do not in keeping with the relaxed “Sunday afternoon pick-up game” intention of the Spring Program.
Children currently in grades K-6 are organized into teams and play one game each Sunday lasting about one hour. The teams are grouped by grade.
We offer a “Tiny Tots” session for children who will attend Kindergarten the next fall. This is a group session that lasts one hour with frequent water breaks. The program is geared to familiarize players with soccer concepts. There is no organized competition and the session consists of a series of games to build individual skills.
