Springfield Intercounty Program:
The Springfield Intercounty program is for players who are interested in playing recreational soccer. Each season, more than 130 players on approximately ten teams represent Springfield in the Intercounty Youth Soccer League. Intercounty teams provide the opportunity to play in the fall and spring against teams from nearby towns. The towns/clubs represented in the past have included Berkeley Heights, Clark, Colonia, Cranford, Garwood, Kenilworth, Mountainside, New Providence, Plainfield, Rahway, Roselle, Scotch Plains, South Mountain (Maplewood/South Orange), Springfield, Summit, Union and Westfield.
Intercounty players practice once a week with a Head coach and every other week with a professional trainer from Victory Soccer Academy training program. There may be additional practice time based on the head coach’s availability. There is usually one scheduled game per week that is played on Saturdays and some occassional Sundays.
The Intercounty program encourages players to learn the game of soccer and improve skill levels throughout the various age groups. The goal of the Intercounty program is to:
• Enhance the player’s skills through a recreational team environment.
• Foster a game-playing attitude based on sportsmanship.
• Have fun and make the experience positive and memorable.
• Develop a life-long love for the game.
All registered players are placed on teams. No tryouts are required. Teams are typically established based on gender and age groups: (8 years old through 17)
