Swarthmore Recreation Association’s soccer programs are designed to provide community members of all ages opportunities throughout the year to learn, enjoy, and compete in the great game of soccer!
Swarthmore Soccer is offered year-round through various levels of programming. In the fall, players ages 3 and 4 play Petite Soccer while players ages 5-9 play Town Soccer nearby. Town Soccer is also offered in the winter on the turf and as clinics in the spring.
For those 7- and 8-year-olds who are ready for more but aren’t quite ready or old enough to play travel soccer, SSC offers an intramural league. Played on SSC fields against other SSC players, the intramural program emphasizes skills and fun in a small-side environment.
Swarthmore Soccer Club offers travel soccer against teams in the Greater Philadelphia area for players in elementary and middle school in both the fall and spring. Additional development is also available over the winter.
In the winter and summer, families play Pick-Up Soccer together.
Adults play three seasons of the year with Adult Pick-up on Henderson Field.
Swarthmore Soccer depends on volunteer coaches. Coaches must complete Eastern Pennsylvania Youth Soccer Association (EPYSA) registration, including background checks, abuse prevention training, and concussion training.
