1st Grade

Welcome to First Grade Soccer!

Fall Season: The fall season runs from early September until mid-November

Spring Season: The spring season begins Saturday April 25, 2015 through Saturday June 20, 2015.  Subject to change due to field availability (Field Status will be posted the morning of 4/25 to indicate).

All games are played at the Deerfield school fields (72 Deerfield Ave) on Saturdays         

  • Girls play from 9:00am to 10:15am 
  • Boys play from 12:00 pm to 1:15pm

This spring, we are hoping to have clinics on the date of the Little League Parade on May 2 (instead of no activity at all).  More information on that will be available soon.

Games are scheduled on Saturday May 23 over the Memorial Day holiday weekend. 

No make-up games will be played. If a game is canceled due to weather it will be posted here: Weekend Field Status by 7:30 am.

First Grade Mites Soccer players are encouraged to build their skills without the pressure of score keeping.  We don’t keep track of goals and there are no goal keepers. Coaches begin with a practice focusing on the skills of dribbling, changing the direction of the ball and passing.  All activities coaches will use are listed on this page below and have been developed by the Director of Coaching.  We are building skills, good sportsmanship and having fun. 


  • Grade 1 Mites Soccer is not a drop-off activity. A responsible adult must stay with the player for the duration of the practice/game.
  • Same Shirts and Teams for the Spring Season
  • Shin guards and soccer socks that cover the shin guards are required.  
  • Cleats are optional but recommended.
  • Players should bring a labeled water bottle to each game.
  • No dogs allowed on Westwood Fields.
  • Players sit with their teams on the sidelines. Parents sit on the opposite side of the field.
  • Please pick up trash on field at the conclusion of the game.

We look forward to a great Spring season! Please feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns.  See you on the fields!
