The days of summer may be sadly dwindling, but the Fall season is filled with excitement as the spirit of competition and sports comradery take to the field once more!  With a new twist– after entering the Suburban Youth Soccer League last Spring, the SOMA FC Girls U15 team kept recreation soccer alive during the pandemic.  In the SYSL, all players are welcome—even first timers. All players are required to play at least half the game—so fairness is built in to the league. If you have experience, please come to play–this is true recreation soccer!

Under the supervision of Peter Travers, South Orange Director of Recreation, Rec Soccer is being fully revived by a new program:  South Orange Soccer.  This program is open to all residents of South Orange and Maplewood.

There will be a seven game season with all away games played within a half hour drive of SOMA.  There will one trainer led practice during the week and a game on the weekend.  The season starts 9/10/22.
