Welcome to the 2006 soccer season!  Your player has been drafted onto our team.

Our team will maintain a website at TheSoccerKids.com  All the information regarding our team, team activities, practices, contact information, pictures, etc. will be located at our website. You will receive an invitation to join with your preliminary Username and Password which is required to view the protected areas of the site. When you first log in with your username and password, you will be required to fill out some information to gain access. (Note: If you enter a birth date of a person younger than 13 years of age, you will be required to obtain adult permission (via email) prior to logging in.
