Opening Day is Saturday September 7, 2019

You and your children are in for an exciting and fun season! We would like to update you on Tenafly Soccer Opening Day 2019- - the official kick off of the 2019 Tenafly Recreation  Soccer Season! Please read all of the information below   

Q. When is Tenafly Soccer Opening Day 2019?

A. This year opening day will take place on the Saturday Sept 7. Once again this year Tenafly JR Soccer and the New York Red Bulls will be partnering to bring you what should be a fun and exciting opening day! 

Q. Where is it and what time should I attend?

A. Opening Day Activities will start at Municipal Field (100 Riveredge Road) where you will get your team Jersey and meet your coach.  Once your child has met their coaches they will be directed to the field for a ball skill/Soccer Festival with the Red Bulls Trainers. Please be sure your child is wearing  shorts, shin guards, soccer cleats or sneakers for the Red Bulls Soccer FUN!!

The meeting times for each Division are as follows:  









Pee Wees (1st grade)





1:15 pm

MINI BOYS + GIRLS (2nd Grade)

1:30 pm

2:30 pm 

Minors/Juniors (3/4th grade)





NOTE: LITTLE KICKERS, 5/6 + 7/8 graders do NOT attend opening day!!

Please plan to come at any time during your child' s designated age group time slot.. Stay for ten minutes or 90 minutes.  While your child is attending the ball skills clinic, Tenafly Jr Rec Soccer Board members will be around and available to answer any questions...

Q.  What about the Little Kickers, 5/6, 7th & 8th Grade boys & girls?  

A.  For these programs your child can pickup their team Jersey at their first game. It is recommended that they arrive early to their first game so that the uniforms can be distributed and we can start the game on time.  

Q. What if it rains on Opening Day?

A. Tenafly Soccer Opening Day 2019 will take place rain or shine. Keep in mind that soccer is a sport played in the rain and municipal field can be used in a light or medium rain. You will be amazed to see how may kids have a great time playing soccer in the rain or even a light drizzle. Also, since the McCandless Room is dry year round, at the very least you will be able to meet your coaches, and get your uniform. 

Q. What if I have OLD jerseys, cleats, and/or used soccer equipment?

A:We will also be collecting used soccer gear that is still in good condition to donate to various charities. If you have any soccer jerseys, soccer shorts, cleats, shin guards and/or deflated soccer balls that are still in good condition please drop them in the bins near the field.   We will be collecting all these items to donate to the Boys & Girls Club of America. 

Looking Forward to a FUN SEASON!
