League Info

League Info:

Lincoln County Soccer League provides a safe and fair atmosphere for Lincoln County, NM youth to learn and participate in recreational soccer. The league was developed to offer players, ages 4 to 14, in Lincoln County an environment for fun, physical conditioning, team building, friends and friendly competition.

This organization cannot function without the support of its parents.  If you would like to volunteer, email us at ruidososoccer@gmail.com or use the contact form on this page. This league will always need volunteers to coach, lead and support our children. Certified referees even get paid. 🙂

This section contains information that impacts our children and our league. Currently there are some big changes happening, not only with our league, but with youth soccer and youth sports nation wide. Click on the links below or choose from the drop down menu for League Info above.

Thank you to the Ruidoso Parks and Recreation department and the Ruidoso Municipal School District for their continued support of youth sports and our community.

Our league currently consists of 4 divisions:

Kinder   –   U6 – Children who are 4 and 5 years old based on their birth year. (Generally Pre-k and Kinder)
Primary   –   U8 – Children who are 6 and 7 years old based on their birth year. (Generally 1st and 2nd)
Elementary  – U11 – Children who are 8, 9 and 10 years old based on their birth year. (Generally 3rd – 5th grade)
Midschool  –   U14 – Chidlern who are 11, 12 and 13 years based old based on their birth year. (Generally 6th – 8th grade)

Some children may be moved up to the next division if they have have a lower birth year than their peers. A handful of Kinder, 2nd grade or 5th grade children may be placed in the next division. Again, this is due to their birth year and this registration guideline is mandated through the USSF and NMYSA and is explained further in the section below about Birth Year and Small Sided Games.
