Each Chico Unified junior high will have teams based on the number of interested students. Teams will compete with evenly matched teams from the other two junior high schools. The goal is to develop a soccer program where all students can participate and be successful.
Games will rotate from one Junior High to the others. Parents will be responsible for transportation to and from games which will be held at 3:30 PM.
Chico Unified will provide the necessary team equipment for gameplay and practice.
Players will be required to get shin guards. Cleats are recommended but not required, as are plain black socks.
