2013 FALL LEAGUE SCHEDULE  click here

General Information

The goal of the Vermont Soccer Association Fall League (VSL-Fall) is to provide opportunities for our youth to play soccer in a positive, competitive environment that promotes skill development, fair play, and good sportsmanship. There are no playoffs or titles to be won.  All clubs/teams/spectators are expected to treat the game, the referee, and each other with respect.

The VSL-Fall continues to grow and this year we are opening up registration to U8 and U13/14 teams. U8 will follow the spring format of coed teams (unless there is enough interest in single gender teams) with coach referees while the U13/14’s will be open to both boys and girls.  In order to kick off these ages groups we need a minimum of four teams each. 

Game Dates
Sunday afternoons September 8, 15, 22, October 6, 13, 20 with a Fall Kohl’s American Cup the weekend of September 29.  (More information on the Kohl’s Cup coming soon)

Location
All games to be held at the Tree Farm Recreational Facility in Essex Junction

League Rules
U8 5v5 (no goalies) U10 (7 v 7), U12 (8 v 8), and U14 (11 v 11) same rules as VSL. U8, U10, and U12 games are 25 minute halves.  U13/14 games will be 35 minute halves.

Forms
US Youth Soccer rules and VSA’s insurance company require coaches to have a signed Medical Release Form (click here) for each player with them at all practices and games. In the event that a player needs emergency medical attention, this form will be necessary to have a player treated if a parent or guardian cannot be reached. Medical Release Forms will also be available via registration in GotSoccer.

Registration
All teams must register players and coaches with VSA using GotSoccer. More information on the registration process can be found here.
