Fall 2021 - Recreational Soccer League
Teams & Placement
Empower Sports wants to create a club like atmosphere in recreational soccer. Team names will be based on coach names and division (i.e. Fitzgerald U7-8 Boys) and team colors will be selected by the soccer director for each team.
We encourage individuals to register but WE DO ALLOW TEAM REGISTRATIONS. If you register as a team you must provide a volunteer coach who is willing to follow the Empower Sports coaching protocols, including back ground checks and mandatory training - more information here.
If a group of individuals, or friends of the same age, would like to be on the same team we will do everything we can to place them on the same team - though this isn't guaranteed. We will ask for you to add those requests during the registration process.
Uniforms & IDs
Players must wear an Empower Sports issued uniform which includes shorts, socks and club shirt (with logo, player name & number). You will need to purchase the uniform from square.bpspiritwear.com/empowersoccer at a cost of $40.
Shin guards must be worn at all games. Player cannot participate without them. Soccer shoes or tennis shoes can be worn in emergencies. NO FOOTBALL OR BASEBALL CLEATS are allowed.
Each player will need to provide proof of date of birth after registration - usually a birth certificate. We will also ask for a recent digital picture of each child on the team. We will keep a database of birthdates and matching pictures for referees to access as needed. Players will not be required to carry official ID, but the sports director will be onsite randomly checking the database.
We are still determining scheduling and locations for each division but fields will include:
Trinity Fields - 3515 Shackelford Rd, Florissant MO 63031
North County Christian School - 845 Dunn Road, Florissant MO 63031
Eagan Center Soccer Field - Eagan Center Driver, Florissant MO 63033
More details will be provided when scheduling is complete. If we do not have enough teams to form an in-house division we may play in other regional leagues such as CYC or NCTL.

Who is Empower Sports? We are part of Empower North County. In the past, we have managed teams that were part of FAAA & NCTL leagues but have started our own league because FAAA is not operating a league this year.
Why can't we use our team name & colors? We want to create more of a club atmosphere. Empower North County's mission is to bring the community together and expand opportunities. Sometimes sports rivalries can create unnecessary tension. We want players, coaches and parents to remember that we are all part of one community and need to support each other no matter what team our children are on.
We do we have to purchase our uniforms through Empower Sports? Part of the way we create income is through printing our own uniforms. It therefore allows us to keep our prices lower.
