    Field Locations Games and training sessions are held at the Monroe Township Soccer Complex. Click on "Locations" for the field map.

    Cancellations: If one of our soccer sessions is cancelled due to inclement weather or unsafe field conditions, an e-mail will be sent to the club along with updates on our website and social media

    Do NOT assume that all games are cancelled.  Be sure to check carefully, sometimes fields at different locations do not close after rain.  

    Volunteer Work We encourage parents to register to be volunteer team manager/coaches. The more parents register, the faster we can begin communicating schedules and rosters. We will hold a coaching session with Shatliff Soccer - no experience is required.

    Shatliff  Training During Shatliff training sessions, the Shatliff trainer conducts the training session. Parents are not allowed on the training field and should be observing from the sidelines off the turf behind the fence, or at least 3 feet from the lined fields without a fence for player and spectator safety.

    Playing Time: At the recreation level, all players MUST play at least 50% of the game.  

    Practice / Game Schedules:  Schedules will be released approximately one week prior to the start of the season.  We cannot create the schedules until everyone has registered and has been placed on a team.  Games will generally be on Saturday mornings, but there may be a few scheduled on Sundays based on holidays or cancellations. Practice times are approximately 1 hour, and game times are about 1 hour to 1.5 hours.

    Frequently Asked Questions: Also, please review the FAQ on the website - Recreation tab, FAQ.
