The Leawood Parks and Recreation Soccer league is a recreational league that stresses the development of individual skills with an emphasis on maximum participation and enjoyment of all players in a “non-competitive” atmosphere.
The league does not provide coaches and relies strongly upon dedicated parent volunteers, whom are background checked, to fill these positions. Individuals will be placed on teams according to school location, whenever possible, with the goal of fostering teamwork and friendship for all involved. Games are played at the Leawood City Park and if necessary, Tomahawk Park fields.
We offer small sided soccer leagues for pre K (4 & 5 year olds) along with Kindergarten through 4th grade children. Teams will play with 7 children on the field, including a goalie, at a time for games.
Groups can be small enough to only have one game team or large enough to have 2 game teams that will split for matches. Team sizes should have a minimum of 9 and at least 18 players (for split game teams). Teams are single gender when possible, although some mixed teams are formed through 4th grade.
Teams in 5th – 8th grade ideally consist of 12 to 14 players from the same school. The games are played on larger fields than the 7 vs 7 group with teams consisting of 9 players on the field at a time.
