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 26, 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.

Soccer Maine Fall Classic Fees 2017 Invoice Form – please use this to mail with your payment. All fees are due on July 15th.
Teams cannot play up an age group in the Fall Classic League. If your team is all U11 players, you would play in the U11 age group, not U12. Teams that are not properly registered with Soccer Maine and participating in the Fall Classic League cannot participate in games with registered Soccer Maine teams. This includes any teams that are registered with another entity other than Soccer Maine and USYS.
