North Baton Rouge Soccer League
If you live in North Baton Rouge, the North Baton Rouge Youth Soccer Association schedules programs at Clark Park. The contact for the North Baton Rouge Soccer Association is Myron Emanuel.
The North Baton Rouge Youth Soccer Recreational Program stresses the fundamentals of soccer and concentrates on the players having fun playing soccer. In conjunction with having fun, our recreational coaches try to instruct our players in the basic skills and strategy of playing soccer. Recreational Soccer is generally split in three or four different age level groups (Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd grade, 3rd and 4th Grade and sometimes 5th and 6th grade) and encourage fellowship and enjoyment of the game of soccer. In the Recreational League, winning is not a priority; quite the contrary, learning about the game of soccer and having fun with the rest of the team is the priority. The Recreational League has two seasons: fall season usually starting in September, and spring season starting in March.
For more information about this league call 225-590-0730 or visit www.nbrysa.org.
BREC also maintains a host of multiple-use fields with soccer goals at several sites throughout East Baton Rouge Parish.
Please note that BREC does not register children or adults for soccer programs. Registration is handled by the various soccer organizations throughout the community.
