Team Formation for fall 2023/spring 2024:Coach or buddy request are no longer accepted via the registration form, by phone, or by email. Every reasonable attempt will be made to form a school/neighborhood team in the fall. The earlier you register, the better the chance your players(s) will be on a team with others from their school. Every school does not have a volunteer coach so schools may be combined.
Team Formation for fall 2023/spring 2024:
The number of teams, thus the number of players we can accept, will be dependent on the number of volunteers willing to coach. We cannot form a team without a volunteer coach. Registration may be closed sooner than the deadline date if teams are full and no other volunteers are available.
Spring teams will then be filled based on the date you complete your registration. Because most players register for the full soccer year (fall '23/spring '24), spots on established teams from the fall are very limited. Most spring only players will be assigned to new teams.

Kindergarten*** 3rd/4th Grade 3rd/4th GradeFirst Grade 5th/6th Grade 5th/6th Grade

These are scrimmage leagues only not individual teams.*** Players must have turned 5 on or before September 15, 2023 in order to participate in the kindergarten league
ICCSD changes for the 2022/2023 school year that may affect Kickers:The Iowa City Community School district will be adding soccer as a junior high school sport starting with the Fall 2022/2023 school year. Junior highs will offer boys soccer in the spring and girls soccer in the fall. Kickers applauds this decision to add soccer as a school sport. At this time, we do not know how this will affect future Kickers programming. The current plan is for Kickers to continue to offer a boys 7/8. Due to declining numbers, girls in grades 7-10 will no longer have a traditional league with individual teams. There is an opportunity to play in a scrimmage league where players can come and be assigned to rotating groups each week. Games will be 7v7 or 11v11 depending on participation.
ICCSD changes for the 2022/2023 school year that may affect Kickers:
- All kindergarten, first and second grade players are required to wear the Kickers red and white reversible shirt to all games. Shirts many be purchased at the concession stand for $20 prior to the first game. This shirt can be worn for 3 years when purchased in kindergarten. Cash or checks accepted.
- Players in grades 3 and above will receive a uniform jersey. Black shorts and black socks are recommended. Jerseys will be distributed by the coach at the first practice.
- All players are required to wear shin guards covered by socks at all practice and games. Soccer shoes are recommended but not required. Baseball toe cleats on shoes are not allowed. Mouth guards are recommended but not required at all levels of play.
- All kindergarten, first and second grade teams will have a 30 minute practice combined with their games on Saturdays. Times listed on the schedule will be the time that practice begins, the game will immediately follow.
- All teams in grades 3 and up will have a mid-week practice in addition to games on Saturdays. Volunteer coaches of each team will schedule the team's practice days/times/locations based upon their availability. They will contact you approximately a week and a half before the season start date with information on practices. We are not able to assign players or move players to a different team based on a practice day preference.
- Leagues which are scrimmage leagues will not have practices.
