Registration now open for Charlotte Independence adult soccer league

Aug. 18. The Charlotte Independence soccer club has opened registration for their adult soccer league, which is one of the longest running adult leagues in North Mecklenburg. The league offers divisions for players of varying ages and abilities and holds games on Sunday evenings at Bailey Road Park.

The fall season runs from Sept. 10th to Nov. 19th and includes eight regular season games and two weeks of playoffs. Teams play on shortened fields with eight players per side and games are played as two, 25-minute halves.

“Our goal is to capture the young competitive players and the still-young-at-heart players,” said Barry Slagle, Director of Recreation for the Independence. “We have divisions for adults that enjoy a higher level of intensity; players who still want to compete but maybe not at the speed of younger players; and players who still love to play but want a little more structure than pickup games.”

The league costs $100 per player and individuals can register as free agents or as full teams. Registration is open now at www.independencesoccer.club and closes Sept. 1st.

The Independence services over 8,000 youth and adult recreation players and hundreds of volunteer coaches in the greater Charlotte area.
