Recreation Soccer League Overview

NJSA Return to Play Policy  

The primary focus of the Recreation Soccer League is to provide an opportunity for every player to have fun, learn the sport and develop life skills. Competition is a natural part of the sport, but it is not the primary objective of the recreational program.

The Norwalk Junior Soccer Association Recreation League is designed for children in Pre-K through 8th grade and is dedicated to the enjoyment and development of soccer players in the Norwalk community. Eight (8) week sessions occur in the Fall (Sept – Nov) and Spring (April – June) and there is a seven (7) week season in the Winter (Jan – Mar).

Norwalk Junior Soccer has a variety of age-specific programs to choose from. Select the appropriate program for your child below to learn more.
