Lonestar Recreational Soccer

Lonestar Recreational soccer is a fun and enjoyable soccer program for all soccer players with over 2,250 players participating across Austin and Central Texas. We incorporate social interaction, motor skill and technical development through games and exercises.

We provide a full-service recreational soccer experience including season administration (player registration, team formation, league scheduling), referees, practice space, and game equipment. All soccer players in the Lonestar SC Recreational program receive uniforms in the fall season (only new players receive uniforms in the spring), medals, player evaluation opportunities (U5-U10), and supplemental player's insurance. All coaches in the Lonestar SC Recreational soccer program are parent volunteers.

  • - The number of player registrations at each location will determine the combination of age groups and if the league is coed.
  • - No heading for any players 12 years old or younger. For more information on the no heading policy, click here.
  • - No punting for any players 12 years old or younger - this is a developmental approach and safety concern to reduce the risk of concussions and other potential injuries.
