Volunteer coaches are permitted to request one player besides their own child per team. Besides siblings, MTL is unable to honor specific requests for teammates or coaches in the Little Kickers program.

For Little Kickers, each child will receive a team jersey, shorts, shin guards, and socks. Each child is required to come each week with his/her own # 3 soccer ball, and they must wear at least sneakers. Soccer cleats are not required for Little Kickers, but they are recommended.

The Registration Fee is $85 for Little Kickers (no refunds). This fee is good through March 7. The Late registration Fee is $115 and will be charged from March 7-15. Space is limited for the Little Kickers program, and registration will close once all available spots are filled, those interested are advised not to wait to register. Registration closed on March 15. No registrations will be accepted after March 15. For those who miss registration, those children can still participate in the 3v3 program. Send an email to with any questions.

"Don't wait until the last minute to sign-up. In-house soccer is our most popular sport and the spots fill up quickly," said McCree.
