7th and 8th grade soccer Question
« on: November 09, 2018, 02:08:32 pm »
Our school just started 7th and 8th grade soccer this year. Can students participate in soccer at school and still play on their club teams?

Or does the same rule that applies to 9-12 apply to 7-8?

Unless AAA changed the rule this year, jr high soccer is considered a club sport. My kids played jr high soccer for their school in the spring and still played with their club team.

Who do the jr high teams play?  Are there enough schools in your area of the state that also have jr high teams for them to play, if not, who do they play?

I believe the rule is that if the school plays other schools, it would be a violation to play on both school and club team

This debate is why the USA will never be good at soccer internationally like European and South American nations.... It's sad honestly. We don't care enough about youth soccer. I hope that changes. Obviously, I am talking about men's. Women's is doing just fine  ;D

Lakeside and Hot Springs now have 7th and 8th grade soccer. Episcopal, too. I'm sure there are others.

I've heard there's a Fall Jr. High league over in the Jonesboro area with Valley View, Jonesboro, Nettleton, etc participating. Not sure if it's still going on.

Yeah thatís been a thing for awhile. I think itís changed a lot over the years but theyíve had unofficia/unsanctioned Junior High teams around for years.
