The PAL Soccer season is from early November until February. The governor of Florida has removed restrictions for youth sports subject to local city and county pandemic regulations. PAL Soccer will be strictly following all Florida Youth Soccer Association and City of Plantation guidelines for return to play, and may impose additional guidelines to keep our children as safe as possible. Registration for 2020-2021 will begin on Saturday September 26th and end on Saturday October 10th.
You must register your child with the City of Plantation to make the payment. This can be done online at www.plantation.org if your child has previously been registered to a PAL sport, or in person at the front desk of the Central Park activities building (hours 8:30am to 8:30pm) by the pool.

COACH TRAINING AND EDUCATION
In conjunction with the Florida Youth Soccer Association, PAL Soccer is committed to providing quality coaching education programs with up to date and invaluable information. The coaching education programs are designed to equip coaches with the theoretical and practical knowledge they need to succeed and be excellent in their role as a coach and a leader. 4v4, 7v7, 9v9, and 11v11 grassroots coaching courses can be taken online or in person, and PAL Soccer will reimburse 100% of the fee for any coach or assistant coach who completes a course. We will also reimburse the cost of the D coaching license. If you take a course from November through February, you must be a PAL coach or assistant coach at that time. If you take a course between March and October, you must agree to sign up as a coach for the upcoming season to be reimbursed.
