Northborough Youth Soccer is organized for children from ages 5-17 of the
town of Northborough. It is an all volunteer organization dedicated to creating
a fun environment for children to advance their soccer skills and teach them the
life lessons of teamwork and determination.
Soccer is played during two seasons in the school year. The first the fall
where league play begins the weekend after Labor Day and the other in the spring
where league play begins the first weekend in April.
Registration ends June 15 for the fall season and December 15 for the spring
Each season over 900 children participate in roughly 70 teams.
Age groups are determined by the age of the child on July 31st and apply for
both seasons. For example, if the child is 7 years old on July 31st, that child
is eligible and will play in our U8 league. If they are 8 on July 31st, that child
will play in the U10 division.
The only exception to the July 31st age is for U6. In order to play U6, a child must turn 5 by August 31st.
