Spring 2022 Registration Deadline:

Welcome to Needham Soccer Club. We offer teams for players of all levels and experience from 1st Grade to 12th Grade, In town and Travel.

You can learn more about all our team programs below. All programs are grade based

3rd Grade Spring Travel Program – EARLY DEADLINE
Players wishing to be considered for 3rd Grade Spring Travel Teams Should Register by Oct 22nd AND Complete The Tryout Sign Up Form

Before You Register.. (uniform)

We strongly recommend reviewing our Uniform Policy and Sizing Charts before completing registration. Uniform sizes are selected during the registration process, and we are unable to guarantee being able to swap out incorrect sizes.

Already Registered For Fall AND Spring?

This year for the first time, we gave players registering for Fall the option of automatically enrolling for Spring 2022 at the same time.

Any players that chose that option do NOT need to register again in October for Spring. Your card will be charged automatically on October 1, and you will roll into spring automatically. This includes players waitlisted in the Fall. 3rd Grade players already registered, but wanting to be considered/tryout for Travel will need to complete an additional online form.

If your credit card on file is out of date/declined you will need to login and submit payment for your Spring registration to be confirmed.

Late Registration

Registration remains open after our registration deadlines. However, players registered after the deadline are assessed a $100 late fee, and waitlisted with no guarantee of being placed on a roster.

Volunteer Coaches Needed!

Each season we have approx. 1600 players and over 100 teams. Almost all of which are exclusively coached by parent volunteers. Please consider registering as a coach/asst coach. No experience necessary

Team Formation

To form teams in our NSCJA & NSCCL programs, along with 7/8th Grade ‘balanced’ teams, the following criteria is use in order of priority:

  1. Pairing volunteer coaches with their children
  2. Player evaluations/skill level where available
  3. Balance of schools on each team. No “school based teams”
  4. Balance of grades in any dual grade age groups
  5. New teams are formed each Fall-Spring year. Teams typically stay the same or similar between Fall and Spring with the exception of any necessary movement based on changes in registration
  6. After criteria 1-5, we will consider ONE FRIEND request. However, it is not possible to honor all requests.
