What is Jones County Soccer?

Where and When will games and practices be held?
All Jones County Soccer games and practices will be held at the Jones County Rec Center on Allen Green Road. All games and practices will ONLY be played on Tuesdays and Thursdays. (Occasionally due to the number of teams, there may be a need for a Saturday morning game, you will know this in advance from your coach.) The season lasts approximately 9 weeks. The first date will be THURSDAY SEPTEMBER 9 for team placements. Times will be announced and will vary with age.
What if my child is inexperienced at soccer?
No problem! This is an instructional and recreational league, particularly in the younger age groups. The game of soccer is a simple game and it will be taught in its simplest form. The primary goal is for each child to have fun.

Teams will be composed of approximately 8 to 10 players. All teams will be made up of children from the same age group, split as follows (may change due to the number of children registered):

Who will coach each team?
This is where we need adult volunteers. Please sign up on the registration form to volunteer. No prior soccer experience is needed. We are always in need of helpers of any kind in order to continue this program and to keep it growing. We could not do this without our wonderful volunteers.
