Difference between Larchmont and Mamaroneck Rec programs
Larchmont and Mamaroneck each have their own recreational leagues for Grades K-5, although the travel teams are combined. Grades 6-12 play under the Larchmont Soccer Club.
It is confusing at registration time as Mamaroneck rec soccer registration falls under
larchmontmamaroneckfootballclub.com which is the travel designation.
Any child who lives or goes to school in Larchmont or Mamaroneck is welcome to play for either league. Here are some of the differences in making a choice:
Location: Mamaroneck plays at Harbor Island, Larchmont plays at Flint Park.
Schools: Traditionally Chatsworth Ave. and Murray Ave., play in Larchmont, Rye Neck and MAS play in Mamaroneck, and Central and FASNY divide between the two. This doesn't mean a MAS child can't play for Larchmont, for example, but probably his/her peers will play for Mamaroneck.
Time: Larchmont games can be any time on Saturday (and occasionally Sunday). Mamaroneck plays its games for each age group at the same time each Saturday (for example, 3rd grade will always play at 10 am), and makes up rain outs if possible.
Travel players: Larchmont doesn't allow travel players to play rec soccer in Grades 1-5.
Practices: Larchmont practice sessions are at the coaches convenience; most teams practice Friday after 5. Mamaroneck holds mid-week training sessions on Wednesdays for 4th and 5th grades and Fridays for 2nd and 3rd grades.
Post Season: Larchmont has a Pele Cup tournament after the last scheduled season game, which is a round robin tournament for all teams.
If you have a question as to which league your child should be registered for please email the Larchmont registrar at email@example.com, or the Mamaroneck registrar at firstname.lastname@example.org.
