2023 Spring Soccer
Free Spring Soccer Registration
Each season, a limited number of youth soccer and youth baseball registrations are FREE for families across Colorado Springs through our Sports Office. These spots are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. There are no income or other eligibility requirements for players in the selected age groups to receive a free spot. The program is open to everyone. However, if your family does not need a free registration, we invite you to select the paid option and/or donate to the Helping Hands Fund. The goal of this program is to remove the financial barrier to participation so all kids can benefit from playing youth sports.
In the Spring of 2023, the $82 fee to play soccer will be waived for the first 460 kids to register at parks citywide from PreK-4th grade (registration begins Jan. 3, 2023).. The most free spots will be available in the youngest age divisions, PreK-2nd grade, and at locations in the southeast and central regions. Early registration closes February 10th and late registration begins February 16th.
Free registrations will be available through at least 2026 thanks to generous grants and donations from the Daniels Fund, Dakota Foundation, Boeing, the Chapman Foundations, Children’s Hospital Colorado, Comcast, Gazette Charities Foundation and the Schuck Foundation. This initiative was started as an activation of the city’s brand, Olympic City USA. To date, $344,500 has been raised.
