South Mountain Soccer is a recreational soccer program which offers a wide range of opportunity to players at all levels in the fall and/or spring seasons. There are no tryouts. Teams are formed randomly and participate in the InterCounty Youth Soccer League (ICYSL) against teams from nearby communities. The ICYSL divisions include U10, U12 and U14 as follows:
