Winter Season Registration opens November 12th and that the season starts February 6th with a week off for Spring Break!

In the Fall of 2011 the Arsenal Recreations Soccer League (ARSL) was formed with over 100 registered players its first season. The ARSL program offers a recreational program priced so that everybody can afford to play. Everyone is welcome from ages 4 – 9, there are no residency requirements like all of the other recreational leagues in Gilbert, Mesa, and other east valley cities must adhere to. All teams are parent coached and all parent coaches are given the soccer tools and training needed to be the best coach possible every season. This is a wonderful place for young and new players to learn to love the game of soccer.

All of the programs Arizona Arsenal Soccer Club has developed have been very successful from the Competitive Travel Teams to the Arsenal Academy & Little Strikers Programs to the new Arsenal Recreational League. There are many more great Arsenal programs that are in the works as well. We invite you to come join the growing Arsenal family.

Looking towards the future, Arizona Arsenal Soccer Club will look to continue to set the standard in youth soccer, not only in our state, but at the regional and national level as well. We will look to develop not only top players, but top coaches, top teams and top individuals as well.

The goals of the new program will be to provide recreational soccer in a safe and healthy environment where the kids can have fun and advance their skills, where adult volunteer coaches will be offered a soccer education geared toward working with youth players, and where young players will gain insight into teamwork, building a lifelong love for the game, and an opportunity to stay fit and healthy through physical education.
