Chatham Recreational Soccer - Program Overview

The Chatham United Recreation Soccer program will be managed by Chatham United and United Soccer Academy (USA).  USA Soccer has a long history of working with the town and Chatham United. We plan to run the program similar to years past and build on the success of the program.

The goals of the recreation program are:

  • Introduce new player to soccer
  • Develop skills and learn basic rules and principles of the game
  • Provide an opportunity to compete in an environment conducive to learning and development
  • And most importantly have FUN!

The Recreation program is open to residents of Chatham Township, Chatham Borough and the Chatham end of Green Village entering Kindergarten through 8th grade in fall 2023

Registration will begin on the Chatham United website Late Spring and run through July 31.  Participants will be provided with a team pinnie.
