Tulsa Parks will host a Co-ed Spring Soccer league for students in kindergarten through fifth grade, thanks to a partnership with the local professional soccer club, FC Tulsa. 

There are no try-outs. Everyone participates with equal playing time and will receive a game shirt and participation award.  

“This is a great program for first-time players who want to learn the fundamentals of soccer and a wonderful opportunity for players and pre-formed teams to continue enhancing their skills,” Anna America, Chief of Culture and Recreation and Park Director said.  

Registration is $50 per child. All students must be registered by March 4, 2022. After that date, a $10 fee is added to your student’s registration. A 25 percent fee is added for residents living outside the City of Tulsa limits.  

As a league participant, students will be able to attend a pre-season clinic on Saturday, March 12, with FC Tulsa players and one free student ticket to the FC Tulsa home game on “Tulsa Parks League Night,” Saturday, May 7.  

“We remain committed to serving all corners of Tulsa and spreading the love of soccer to our community,” said FC Tulsa president James Cannon. “This partnership with Tulsa Parks allows us to bring the beautiful game right to the backyard of young athletes in Tulsa and grant players the opportunity to enjoy a night at one of our matches free of charge.” 

The eight-game season will run from March 26 through May 14, with a six-game guarantee. Games are held on weekends/weeknights in a recreational, co-ed format. Games will be played at Hicks Park, Reed Park, Lacy Park, Jane A. Malone, or Whiteside Park Recreation Centers.  

Register your student online or in person at any City of Tulsa recreation center.  

Scholarships Available 
Limited scholarships are available for student-athletes. Contact Tarah Moutray for information about scholarships available for youth sports leagues at (918) 596-1520 or tmoutray@cityoftulsa.org.  

Volunteer Coaches and Referees Needed 
Tulsa Parks youth sports leagues also rely on volunteers to coach teams and referee the games. The presence and mentorship of a coach or referee gives young athletes life-changing opportunities that can have a long-term, positive impact on their lives.  

Bilingual coaches and referees are especially needed to help provide inclusive sports opportunities in our community.  All Tulsa Parks coaches and referees must fill out an application and a background screening form. Please contact Tarah Moutray if you are interested in volunteer opportunities.
