NSA Recreation Soccer offers fall and spring seasons and is open to residents of Neptune Township and surrounding towns in grades Pre-K-8.
The Neptune Soccer Association administers the Neptune Township Recreation Soccer program on behalf of the Township. This program emphasizes fun and the basics of soccer. While teams play games against other teams within the recreation league, individual team standings are not kept and sportsmanship, not winning, is stressed. This program has been highly successful and extremely popular, attracting hundreds of children every season. With approximately 400 participants each season, it is one of the largest recreation program in Neptune Township.

Neptune Soccer Recreation Coaches

Neptune Soccer is always in search of volunteer coaches and paid referees. Refereeing for younger players is an excellent stepping-stone to lucrative Travel/NJYS refereeing and scholarship opportunities.

Recreation coaches must be 18 years or older.  Referees can be as young as 13. Participants age 18+ will be subject to Background Checks and will need to complete SafeSport training.  Related fees are paid by the NSA.
