United Soccer Spring League has been providing fun for over 20 years in Victoria.
The Spring League is about playing soccer ... and about Fun! No training .... just playing!
Also, enjoy the benefit of playing when the weather is warmer
Spring League Season - currently planned for April 12th - June 19th
Hampton Park is the hub of the United Spring League
However, we also utilize Layritz Turf field (we plan to base our competitive league out of Layritz).
Kids play sports for FUN!!!!
Our goal is to provide that fun through a "laid back" west coast style environment. With, flexible teams, drop-in players, free play, limited coaching, music, etc.
We pride ourselves on providing a league that is formatted to the development of teams/players without the pressure of winning at all cost. For those parents/players that want a bit more competition, we have started a "competitive" division (see details below).
United has 20 years of experience in juggling teams of varying levels and creating teams from individual players. This season we will try to satisfy the needs of two groups of players ... those individuals that just want to play soccer for fun and those that register as a team (competitive). Typically those that register as a team are better than those teams created from individually registered players and the games are lopsided. This year we will register two levels - Recreational + Competitive.
Saturday 12:30 - 1:30pm
The Active Start program is for younger players just learning to play soccer. This groups goals are FUN! FUN! FUN!
Carrying on from what this players may have done in the Fall Season (Physical Literacy type soccer); this group will always do a 15min group warm-up with some soccer-based exercises & games e.g. dribbling game, relay races, etc. After a short water break, the players will now break into their teams and play an organized soccer game with some support from facilitators and volunteer coaches.
Again, the goal is FUN!
FUN = continue participation in sport = healthy/happy children!!

The recreation division are for u7-u18 players that want to have fun. If teams are registered in the recreational division and games are lopsided we reserve the right to adjust things (i.e. move to higher division, change teams, etc.). We have found that this is where the inequality between teams comes from (i.e. teams are almost always stronger than the teams created from individuals).
Don't be afraid to register your player as an individual ... we spend a lot of time trying to create teams that are friend/school-centered and balanced. Mixing up players, playing with other players and teams is part of the fun of Spring League. Typically all your friends will play the same night/location ... so you will still be able to hang out with them.
The competitive divisions will be typically created from having keen coaches/players registered as a team. Players will still be required to register individually with United via the player registration link (for insurance and fee payment purposes) ... however, we will get team lists from the coaches and group players on those teams.
If you are an individual player but still want to play competitive ... you can still register in competitive and we will try to find a team for you.
******************** I M P O R T A N T *******************
We require a minimum of $30 deposit be paid before the player is assigned to a team or before they start playing. This is to cover cost of uniform/kit.
We will not provide a kit unless this deposit is paid.
Programs may change based on player numbers and team availability.
A mini program where group skills are first done for 15-20 minutes then the team split up into small sides games against the other teams.
This group require volunteer coaches for each team, but the warm-up is facilitated by a paid youth player/coach to help the teams.
Registration is by individual only and will form teams to try to balance strength.
Placement will be done trying to keep some friends together and trying to keep teams equal skill (team balancing).
Registration for competitive is typically done by teams, The TDs/Coaches will be working with United Spring League staff to form the teams.
The teams' players still have to register individually in order to: a) get names into systems; b) take payment and c) ensure player is covered by insurance.
If you are an individual and want competitive play, still register as competitive and we will find a team for you
As part of Spring League registration, your player will receive a full kit/uniforms (jersey + shorts + socks) - the price of this is included in the registration cost.
Add a footnote if this applies to your business
Hampton Park: Go west on McKenzie, under the Douglas overpass, then left on Glanford, bend left on Carey Rd., right on Tillicum, cross the Island Highway, left on Regina, right on Seaton, right on Hampton. Look right. Alternative: Go west down Burnside. Take the last right before Tillicum (Orillia St). Go one short block to Hampton Street and you are there.
