most popular league is the Fall Classic League,
which features boys and girls divisions in age groups
from U-8 through U-14.
New for 2021*** - we will include a U8 division so U8 teams may apply. The U8 age group will strictly adhere to the 8/1 date - the player must be 7 by 8/1.
Classic Clubs will need to affiliate for 21/22 by 7/15 and have all teams registered in the Fall Classic League by July 21st. Players should be registered in their club accounts and on their respective teams by August 1. Players can be added after this date and prior to roster freeze of August 20th for U12 through U14 teams, and September 3rd for U8 through U11 teams, but rosters should be substantially complete prior to that. Teams will play in their appropriate age division, and cannot play up an age group in the Fall Classic League. Play will begin on Sunday, August 29th for U12 through U14s, with 6 league games. Play will begin on Sunday, September 12th, for U8 through U11 teams, with 6 league games. U8 through U11 teams will have at least one Saturday playdate. If a team is part of a bracket with an uneven number of teams, they would have a bye date, and a Saturday play date.
Registration will open for teams on June 16th in the new Got Sport registration system. You must be set up with all teams in this system to apply your teams to the league. The Got Sport system is our new registration platform as of the Fall 2020 season and differs from the former Got Soccer legacy registration system.
Please remember not to age up your teams. Teams will automatically age up in the system on 8/1.
Please note that our rosters allow for a maximum of 3 coaches to be rostered. Coaches should be licensed through our grassroots 7v7, 9v9 and 11v11 courses, or if licensed under our old system - Youth Module and/or E license.
Please note that per FIFA Laws, 7 players constitutes a team for play.
Playoffs for U12 through U14 teams begin on Saturday, October 23rd. Semi-finals will take place on Sunday, October 31st. Finals will take place on Sunday, November 7th. U14 Girls D2 bracket winners will progress directly to a Final on November 7th (no semi-finals).

Groups will play off in a single elimination format based on a field of 8. If your group is bigger than 8, the first round of games will get the group to a field of 8. If your group is smaller than 8, the first round of games will get the group to a field of 4.
Higher seeds will host their 1st and 2nd round of games. Soccer Maine will determine hosts for all subsequent rounds.
Groups that are larger than 8 will play first round games on Saturday, 10/24 and second round games on Sunday, 10/25.
All other groups will play first round games on Sunday, 10/25.
The schedule is challenging for us as we have clubs that are coming in late, and teams that have exited due to COVID concerns, thus we are creating the schedule week to week to be able to adjust to necessary changes.
Be sure that your teams have all requirements met as specified in all of our Return to Play Phases. All clubs must have submitted their Return to Play protocol to Soccer Maine.
