Fall Classic League

 

Soccer Maine’s most popular league is the Fall Classic League, which features boys and girls divisions in age groups from Under-9 through Under-14. Classic Clubs playing Fall Classic must have all teams registered in the League by July 17.  Players should be registered in their club accounts and on their respective teams by August 1. Players can be added after this date and prior to roster freeze of August 21, but rosters must be substantially complete by August 1. Teams will play in their appropriate age division, and cannot play up an age group in the Fall Classic League.  Play will begin on Sunday, August 25, for U12 through U14 teams, with 6 league games over 6 weekends.  U9 through U11 teams will begin league play on September 8, with 6 league games over 6 weekends.  Additionally, teams in brackets with uneven numbers of teams will have a bye-week and a double on a separate Sunday.

The U9/U10 Festivals and U11 Festivals will all take place on the weekend of October 26/27.  Playoffs for U12 through U14 teams will begin the weekend of October 19/20 and continue through October 26/27.  Semis and Finals will be held on the weekend of November 2/3.
