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 15. All 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 23, 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 26 with 6 league games over 5 weekends. U13 and U14 teams will have a double game weekend on September 8/9, U11s and U12s will have a double game weekend on September 15/16, U9s and U10s will have a double game weekend on September 22/23. Additionally, some of those teams that are part of brackets with uneven numbers of teams will have a bye-week and a double on a separate Sunday.
The U9/U10 Festivals will take place on October 13th (girls) & 14th (boys). The U11 Festivals will take place on October 20th (girls) & 21st (boys). Playoffs will begin the weekend of October 13/14 and continue through October 20/21. Semis and Finals for U12s and up will be held on Sunday, October 28th.
The U12 through U14 D1 and D2 playoff brackets are posted below. Playoff host sites are highlighted in yellow. The host sites set their schedules within Soccer Maine parameters. Those clubs will be contacting the teams in their bracket with their schedule. All teams should have both upcoming weekends available for playoffs per the Fall Classic Handbook rules/policies.
