2019 Recreational Spring Season
Registration for Spring Season is now Open!
WELCOME! to the Recreational Spring season at Florida Premier FC. Recreational Soccer is ideal for the player who wants to be introduced to the game, play with friends and participate on a team. Recreational soccer is open to all players and is primarily devoted to the enjoyment and development of soccer players. No tryouts are required to join a team. All teams are coached by volunteers. This Spring we are trying to form a league strictly out of the Holiday Complex so more people can practice closer to where they live. All of the complexes will be run the same, with the same quality of training and coaching. Please keep in mind that if we do not get enough players to register for the Holiday Complex, we will combine those players with the players from Mitchell.
Registration closes March 15th, 2019. Late registrations will only be accepted on a team need basis. All registrations are done online via Florida Premier’s online registration system—Blue Sombrero. First go to our website www.floridapremierfc.com, click on Recreational up at the top, then choose and click on what field you are registering for in the drop-down box. If Holiday does not appear than just use the Mitchell tab. You will have a chance to choose Holiday later in the registration process.
If you created an account for a past season – log on using your user name and password. If you are new to the online registration, click on “new user” and follow the instructions. Payment must be made by debit/credit card online.
*****(If you are unable to pay by credit card, please contact Steven Emerson at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange for a face to face registration.)
Any requests for registration refunds will be on an individual basis. Our general rule is no refunds for registration once the tee shirt order has been placed (about 2 weeks prior to the first game).
COST: $99 for all U15 (2004-2012 birth years); $75 for U16 and up (2000-2003 birth years). All U15 and below will have 1x a week practice.
