SABR Adult Soccer - 35+ Men's League

We offer a 12-week 11 v 11 Spring League for Men 35 and over (if you are 19-34 years old, please visit our 11 v 11 Spring League for Men 19-34 page instead).  As a recreational program, we encourage playing for fun and camaraderie.

Registration for the Spring league is CLOSED.

The league typically includes a range of skill levels, with some participants having played in college (or semi-pro), many have high-school experience, whereas others may have limited experience overall.

How Do I Register?

The League registration is closed.

When Does the League Start and End?

We anticipate the League to start the week of March 1st, 2021, however it may start later on in March, depending on field availability.  We will have game and field information in mid-February, and all registrants will receive the information via email.

Each team plays once a week during the 10-game regular season and during the 2 weeks of playoffs (including a special "NIT" bracket!).

What Days and Times Are the Games Played?  How Many Times per Week?

Games are played at 6:30pm or 8:15pm on Mondays and Tuesdays.  Each team plays once per week.

Where are the Games Played?

The games will be played at the FAU Game Field, Spanish River Athletic Park, and Patch Reef Park.

What if There is Bad Weather?

In the event of bad weather, please call the City of Boca Raton's Field Conditions Hotline at 561-367-7068.  Games are cancelled if the fields are closed by the City.

If the field is open but the park lightning alarm activates, all players must leave the field and seek shelter.  Play may resume after the lightning alarm resets (typically 20-30 minutes after the last lightning strike detected).  Games may be cancelled due to lightning or weather at the discretion of the referees.

How Do You Determine Teams?

We expect to have 8 teams in the league, with 17 field players and 1 goalie each.  We allocate players to teams via a draft by the captains, which typically allows us to achieve reasonable parity (which is an objective of the league).

Your team captain will email you shortly before the start of the season.

How Much Does It Cost?

Registration is $111.  This includes the $86 league fee and $25 for the annual Florida State Soccer Association (FSSA) insurance fee.

Players who have already paid the FSSA insurance fee for this calendar year (Sept 2020 to Aug 2021) will only be charged $86 at checkout.

The fee includes a uniform (shirt only, no shorts) for all field players, field permits and 3 referees for each game.

There are discounts for goalies.  If you would like to play goalie for the league, please Contact Us for further info.

I'm Turing 35 This Year, Can I Play?

Yes, you are eligible to play if you turn 35 at any point this calendar year.

What Forms of Payment Do You Accept?

We accept payment via all major Credit or Debit cards at checkout.

What is Your Refund Policy?

  1. Before February 16th, 2021, if requested, the League Fee only can be refunded.  Uniform, FSSA, and processing fees cannot be refunded.
  2. After February 16th, 2021, no refunds will be issued for this League for any reason.  This refund policy is due to our lean SABR fee structure and minimum registrant requirements.

Once the season starts, we are not able to provide any further refunds.

  • All players must wear shin guards
