Coed Soccer Leagues

The Erie Soccer League offers a wide selection of playing divisions based on skill levels. All coed divisions play on Tuesday evening. An additional and separate Friday evening coed soccer league is being formed in the spring/summer of 2017 and ultimately will support Division 3 play, as well as an over 30 division.
