Geneva Lake United offer recreational soccer for kids from age 5 to 15. Recreational teams play in the Stateline Soccer league. Geneva Lake Rush teams participate in a two-part season, with seven-week sessions in the fall and spring. Your child will be on the same team for both sessions. Games for the fall session begin in early September, with practices starting mid-August. Games for the spring session typically start in late March or early April.
Registration fees are $85.00 for U8 and $110.0 for U9-U15 recreational teams. These teams are organized by age levels for players 7 years old through 8th grade. This fee covers both the fall and spring seasons. We have limited funds available to sponsor children unable to pay the fee, which you may apply for during the registration process.
Uniforms cost $45 for the entire set. Sets include two jerseys, one pair of shorts, and one pair of socks.
The club offers an In-house program for 5-6 years old who already participated in the Big Foot Recreation program. In-house costs $55 per player (includes the fall and spring seasons) and each player receives a t-shirt. This program usually includes two practices per week and includes more scrimmages than the Big Foot program.

The important policies defining recreational soccer include:
- Recreational teams are formed each year.
- Teams are formed on the basis of geographical area or random selection.
- Each player shall play at least half of the game, provided they meet the club’s established requirements.
- Players will register and be age eligible according to their birth year (find your child’s “U” level)
- Recreational teams have no more than half of the team returning from the previous season (teams must rotate at least 50% of the team roster from registration year to registration year.) In Wisconsin, this includes no more than five returning players.
- This may be relaxed in areas where the community may be challenged to form multiple teams.
