Register your child now for fall soccer with Jerseyville Parks and Recreation Department (JPRD). Teams are coed and will be divided by grades (entering in the fall): 1/2, 3/4 and 5/6. Practices will begin in August and games will run from September through October. All games will be played at Dolan Park, typically on Tuesday/Thursday nights and Saturday mornings. Shinguards are required and plastic or rubber soccer cleats are recommended. The league's success depends on parents as volunteer coaches.
