Intramural Overview

North Reading Youth Soccer’s intramural program is for younger players who want to learn the game of soccer while enjoying friendly competition with other players from North Reading. There are two playing seasons each year, fall and spring.
During both seasons, the intramural program forms teams in the KG, G1, G2, and G3 age groups. We also offer a special Pee-Wee program for the Pre School age group during the spring season.
Intramural games are played on Saturday mornings or very early afternoon at Ipswich River Park. We will post schedules when they are available.
A reversible jersey and a size 3 ball is used in the Pre School-Grade 3 age groups. Near the start of each season, we will let you know how you can purchase a reversible jersey from us. The jersey is reusable from season to season through G3. If you are new to our program, we will give you a size 3 ball when you buy the reversible jersey.
Teams are generally co-ed through at least G2, although, depending on numbers, we may keep teams co-ed in the G3 age group as well.
