Program Facts

Divisions Based on Grade: Following Colorado school age guidelines, PRCS division break down is based on October 1, 2017. Parents will register their child based on the grade they are in.  Players may not waive into the program.

Changing to a different division is not recommended. A child may move up one grade level, if the parent signs a waiver acknowledging that they are aware their child may be playing with children up to two years older. A player may move down one grade level by providing a signed statement from a physician describing a condition/disability that would prevent the child from playing within his/her division. NOTE: The medical statement must be submitted to the PRCS Sports Office forapproval. If a child is held back a grade, a letter from the school will need to be provided with the registration.

Player Requests: Although we can not guarantee your child is going to play with his or her friend; PRCS will make every effort to honor requests. Make sure both children are in the same division, select the same practice location, and write the other child’s name on the registration form.

Practice Sites: Participants register for a practice location. Practice sites differ from game sites. Your coach will call you to inform you of the time and date of your first practice. Coaches determine practice days and times; and may choose to move practices to a park within a two-mile radius of the location your registered.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does Recreation Services organize leagues?

  1. The leagues are based on the number of teams in each division and the number of players at the practice locations.
  2. Practice sites that do not have enough players to make a team will be relocated to the nearest available practice location needing players. Relocated players will be notified.

What equipment do soccer participants need?

  • Uniforms: Recreation Services provides the official team jersey. Your coach will distribute jerseys prior to the first game.
  • Shoes: Tennis shoes or molded-sole soccer shoes are the players’ responsibility. Baseball cleats are not permitted.

Does Sports ever cancel games?

Games will not be canceled due to wind, cold or damp conditions. Dress appropriately. When in doubt... report to the field. If weather conditions do require cancellations, PRCS will publicize weekday cancellations by 3:30 p.m. on call (719) 385-5981; select 5; Facebook @ Colorado Springs Sports Office; or Twitter @ CSSportsOffice.  Cancellations after 3:30 p.m. will be made at the site by the coaches and officials.

Who schedules pictures, trophies and end-of-season parties?

We recommend parents helping the coach plan those season extras like providing game refreshments and helping with scheduling pictures, trophies and/or after season parties. All team costs are the sole responsibility of the parents. Recreation Services does not endorse any photographer or business.  Note: It is a good idea to plan ahead for parties and banquets, as many places require reservations one to two months in advance.
