Our Adult Recreation Program is designed for adult players with a varied level of experience-novice to seasoned veteran-who want an enjoyable playing experience on a Sunday afternoon. The league is casual, with no referees, as the teams and their captains manage the matches each week. Players have ranged in age from 18-70, and the league seeks to find a balance between all players.  It’s a great place for families to play together. Spouses, parents and their adult children, siblings…

The league wants and needs new players!  Sign up with your Blue Sombrero Account here!

We play three seasons per year, in Spring (March-May), Summer (June-August), and Fall (September-November). Fee to join the league is just $55, which includes the league t-shirt. We’ll play the fall and spring seasons a the Buncombe County Sports Park on Sunday afternoons. We’ll be at the John B Lewis Soccer Complex in the summer.
