Summer Watermelon League 4 v 4 Soccer

New Dimensions Soccer’s 4v4 Watermelon League for kids K-8 begins its six-game season on the first Sunday in June and runs every Sunday through late July, excluding Father's Day and July 4th weekend.

Games will be played at the McKinley Practice Field (Allen Ave. immediately south of the intersection of Jefferson and 44), and St. Luke's (7230 Dale Ave, St. Louis, MO 63117).  

This unique league enables kids from all over the world and all walks of life to play and learn together in a diverse setting while enjoying fun, skill-building 4v4 “grassroots soccer” free from the pressures and constraints of competitive leagues.

Teams may be multi-age and/or coed. The league will make every effort to create weekly matchups that are age- and skill-appropriate so that everyone has fun and enjoys a sense of accomplishment. Schedules are week-to-week since we add teams throughout June, and we will work to accommodate special requests (consistent start times, vacation adjustments, etc.)

Games are two twenty-minute halves where no scores or standings are kept. No coaching from the sidelines is permitted. Players will have the opportunity to learn from the game and from each other.

2019 Sunday Game Dates are as follows:

          June: 2, 9, 23, 30

          July: 12, 21

          Off Dates: 6/16 (Father’s Day), 7/7 (Fourth of July Weekend)
