    JL Long 6th grade co-ed soccer is back this Fall for our 20th consecutive season with limited team player space due to Covid-19 Rules. Team/s will only have ONE 2 hour practice per week per team. We will be limiting team size to only 14 players per team. Details will be more forthcoming as we get more information from the YMCA if you have an interested 6th grader please email Coach Victor at vaves@pegasusrealtyinc.com or you can call at 214-616-0194-- you will be added to an email list and be kept up to date. Players of all skill levels are welcome. This will be on a first come and first serve basis.



    Since the Fall of 2011,  the JL Long PTA has offered 6th grade soccer to  it’s students.  Under UIL Rules, sixth grade students cannot participate in school team sports, so this is a fantastic opportunity for children to stay active. Teams are open to all incoming sixth grade boys and girls of all skill levels!   League play is through the White Rock YMCA and there is both a Fall and Spring Season.   The team is co-ed and open to anyone attending JL Long and any other nearby school. Players of any skill level are welcome. The team will consist of 14+ players and will be co-ed. Everyone will have a chance to play! The team practices are at Randall Park across from Woodrow Wilson High Schoool from 4:30 PM to 6:00 PM, typically on Tuesdays and Thursdays.  If enough players register and we have enough volunteer coach support we can have two teams!   As of Fall  2019, Cost is $85 for Y members and $125 for non-Y members.  As of this Fall 2019 season, uniforms are included in registration fee. Scholarships are available.

    To register, you must go in person to the White Rock YMCA at 7112 Gaston Ave Dallas, TX 75214 and register under JL Long Buccaneers and Coach Aves.   For more information contact Victor Aves at 214-616-0194 or vaves@pegasusrealtyinc.com OR the YMCA at 214-328-3849 OR the JL Long school Front office.
