William Fox Elementary School offers co-ed soccer teams for players of all abilities Pre-K through 6th grades (ages 4 to 12 years old) and is open to the public should your school not have a soccer program.
Approximately half of all Fox students participate in this popular league that is also a fundraiser for the WFES PTA!
There is both a Fall and a Spring season and is a Volunteer run program, so please consider contributing to keep the ball rolling.
Pre-K – 1st grade (U-6 and U-7)
The U-6 and U-7 Fall season is September to October/November and the Spring season is March/April to May/June.
There are 6 games and a make-up date(s) at the end, if needed.
Fall registration will begin in August and Spring registration in February.
These teams practice the first 30 minutes and play the last 30 minutes on Friday afternoons: at 4pm for U6 and 5pm for U7 on the field behind our school. Specific game dates will be available when registration closes for that season.
2nd – 5th grade (U8, U10 and U12)
The U-8, U-10 and U-12 Richmond City Parks and Recreation League seasons specific dates are not available until we receive them from the league. The seasons consist of 7 or 8 games, with the Fall season including playoffs including the top 4 teams per U-10 and U-12 Divisions.
Typically, there is a lower BlUE bracket and an uppper RED bracket for U-10 and U-12 so most players can placed in the correct age/developmental environment.
These teams practice during the week depending on Coaching availability and play on Saturdays, U-8 at Humphery Calder or Pine Camp and U-10 and U-12 at Bryan Park.

In order to provide rosters to the City and our coaches, as well as deliver team uniforms in a timely manner, all registrations must be received by the deadline indicated. Under special circumstances and at the discretion of the Soccer Committee, late registrations may be accepted. If a late registration is accepted, there will be a $10 late fee charged.
There are a limited number of player registrations available, based on number of coaches. When the teams reach capacity, we will begin a waiting list in the order of registration. If space becomes available, we will accept players from the waiting list.
Registration is first come, first served, with current Fox students given priority. Teams will be created based on coach and field availability. We will also try to balance the teams based on age. When possible, returning players will be grouped with their returning teammates and coach.
U-6 and U-7 teams practice and play on Fridays (30-minute practice followed by a 30-minute game): U-6 begins at 4 p.m. U-7 begins at 5 p.m.
U-8, U-10 and U-12 teams typically practice at Fox or Humphrey Calder, 1-2 days per week, at the discretion of the coach. Games are played on Saturdays, at Bryan Park or Humprey Calder Community Center.
If your child played the previous season at Fox, we will try to keep them on their existing team and with their returning Coach. If you have a specific request, please indicate it in the registration comments. We will try our best to accommodate you.
Once your child has been assigned a coach, he/she will contact you regarding practice days and times. If you have a conflict with a specific practice day, please indicate that in the registration comments. We will try our best to accommodate you.
** Please make any special requests prior to the close of registration. Team rosters are formed when registration is closed and it becomes more difficult to make changes.**
We always need volunteer coaches and assistants. Fox and the City League have a coaches’ training session each season. If you are interested, please contact the Co-chairs listed below.
The Fox uniform consists of a purple Fox jersey, black shorts, purple socks, shin guards and soccer cleats/sneakers. For new players, purple Fox jerseys and socks can be purchased at registration.
All players MUST wear shin guards - please make sure your child has these for the first game.
If you have old equipment, the soccer committee is accepting donations of used equipment. Please put it in the Soccer Box in the school office. We will make sure it is received by deserving players.
