House League

Outdoor House League Soccer Programs

The goal of the Niagara Falls Soccer Club’s house league program is to provide a rewarding, enjoyable soccer-playing experience for all participants, regardless of their skill level. Player development sessions are also available through our advanced development programs focusing on further development of each player’s ball skills, passing skills, shooting skills, speed and agility under the supervision of our certified technical staff.

Niagara Falls Soccer Club’s Outdoor House League soccer program runs from the end of May to late August and is open to all boys and girls ages 3 to adulthood.  All NFSC’s Programs are Co-Ed.  Games normally run every Saturday morning on our Home Field at EE Mitchelson Park.

This year’s start date for our 2017 House League program will be Saturday, May 27th. 

Registration for our Outdoor House League program starts every January and goes until the beginning of the season in May.  To see a description of our Divisions, see below!! 🙂

Here at NFSC, we do not have late fees or deadlines but early registration is highly recommended for us to better prepare for the season ahead and spots may run out.  Please contact the office for more details.

The Kinderkicks program is an Introduction to Soccer and a place to develop the initial love of the game.  At this level, the players begin to familiarize themselves with the ball, the team structure, and the equipment used in soccer in a very fun and supportive environment with a Coach, using a small team, 4 v 4 formats with no goalies.  The emphasis is FUN and touches on the ball!
