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 Sundays. Playoffs will begin the weekend of October 13/14 and continue through October 20/21. Semis and Finals will be held on Sunday, October 28th.
Click here for the 2018 Fall Handbook. Please note the following important items for Fall 2018:
1. U9 and U10 will play 7v7 in the Fall Classic League
2. U11 and U12 will play 9v9 in the Fall Classic League
3. The League will play 6 regular season games over 5 weekends
3. Concussion Protocol – no heading allowed for U11 and younger players. See Section 705 of the Handbook
4. Teams cannot play up an age group in the Fall Classic League. If your team is U11, you would play in the U11 age group, not U12.
5. U9 teams must be at least 50% true U9 players. U8 players can be rostered on U9 teams if you club policies allow it, but not on U10 or older teams. This applies under all circumstances.
6. U7 players are not permitted in the Fall Classic League under any circumstance.
6. Teams not registered and participating in the Soccer Maine Fall Classic League cannot participate in games with registered Soccer Maine Fall Classic League teams. This includes any teams that are registered with another entity other than Soccer Maine and USYS.
TEAM SUBMISSION DIRECTIONS
Teams must be entered into the Soccer Maine Fall Classic League 2018 event by July 15th and fees sent in!
Please remember – team ages change automatically on 8/1/2018. Do not change your existing team ages. Do not create new teams for age groups that you already have teams. History is attached to your teams. If you are creating a new team for a young group, such as a U9 team, you will need to create it as U8 (that would be their current team age) as it will automatically change to U9 on August 1. Lastly, there must be players on teams when you submit them. This enables us to make sure the team is in the right age group. You can add players up until roster freeze on August 22nd.
Also please remember to designate your U12 to U14 teams as D1 or D2 in your team names. This will avoid any confusion as to placement of the teams.
