(Peewee Instructional Program and Riverdale Soccer Girls League)

We are still accepting registrations by mail only for the Spring 2023 season, which will take place at the Van Cortlandt Park Parade Grounds near Brodway and West 251 Street.

The Peewee Program is for boys and girls born in 2015 and 2016 and will be an hour and a half session on Saturday mornings. Children born in 2016 will meet from 8:30 to 10, children born in 2015 from 10 to 11:30.

The Girls League is open to girls only born in 2010 through 2014. Games for girls born in 2013 and 2014 will take place at either 12 or 1 pm, games for girls born in 2010 to 2012 at either 2 or 3 pm.

Both programs will run for 10 weeks, from April 1 through June 3. The season fee is $95 per player for either program (includes $10 late fee after February 28), which includes the player's uniform of a jersey, shorts and socks. Players must provide their own shin guards, which are required to play.

Due to time and field space limitations, registration is limited and is on a FIRST COME BASIS.

There is no Boys League in the spring for boys born before 2015. The Boys League plays only in the fall season at Seton Park, and registration for the fall begins in June.

To register for the spring, print out a registration form. Then mail the completed registration form with a $95 check or money order to the address on the registration form. We will email a receipt confirmation message when we receive your registration. There is no online or phone registration. If your age group is full, you will be notified by email that you were placed on the wait list and your check or money order will not be deposited unless a spot opens up for you.
