Coaches Needed

We are looking for enthusiastic volunteer soccer coaches for every age group in our league. Please consider coaching your child's team. Coaching is an incredible opportunity to make a positive impact in the lives of young athletes! Please indicate on the registration form your interest. If you do not have a child in the program, please contact us to volunteer. Contact information can be found on this page for the soccer program.

Pick your Park 

Continuing this Spring, Bentonville Parks and Recreation will allow Lil’ Kicksters and U5-U8 league participants to choose the location they play at! Lil’ Kicksters and U5-U8 league participants can now choose between Citizens Park (1101 SW Citizens Circle) or Memorial Park (1600 John DeSheilds Blvd). When registering, participants will be prompted to choose the location they prefer to play at. (Leagues U9-JRH will still take place at Memorial Park due to field size requirements.)

Lil' Kicksters

Along with our recreation league, we also offer Lil' Kicksters. Lil' Kicksters is an introductory program for children ages 3 to 4. Lil' Kicksters is limited to the first 28 registered participants per session and consists of fun activities and games designed to introduce players to the fundamentals of soccer. Registration will open October 1, 2019.

Our sessions will begin Saturday, February 29, 2020. Sign up for a specific day of the week. Participants come one day per week over an 8-week period. Rainouts will be made up. Participants receive a jersey, and curriculum instruction specifically designed to develop soccer skills and a love for the game.
