Game Scheduling

The Northern New England Soccer League operates youth soccer leagues for U9-U15 teams during the fall soccer season with games taking place from September through early November and for U9-U19 teams during the spring season late April through mid June.

  • NNESL Games will be scheduled using GotSoccer
  • Games will be scheduled primarily on Saturdays 
  • Fall season Kicks Off the 1st Saturday in September after Labor Day - 8 game schedule plus Playoffs. 
  • The Spring season Kicks Off the 3rd or 4th Saturday in April - 6 game schedule plus Playoffs
  • NNESL will designate the 3rd Sundays in September & October to schedule needed games (Fall season)
  • NNESL will designate the 3rd Sunday in May & the 1st Sumday in June to schedule needed games. (Spring Season)
  • Additional Sunday games can be scheduled as needed (however the league is committed to a primarily Saturday schedule)
  • Friday Night games can be scheduled upon request and agreement of both coaches. (Fall Season). This will apply to other mid week games as well. (Primarily Spring Games unless lights are available)
  • Field Coordinators (Club Schedulers) please consider stacking games by age group and fields to help accommodate the assigning of referees.  Gaps in the schedule or games scheduled at the same time at the same complex may not be the best use of our refereee resources.
  • PROMOTION AND RELEGATION In an attempt to focus on player development and maintain team parity, the league’s competition committee reserves the right to promote or relegate teams at the mid-point (after 3-4 games) of each season. The impact may cause changes in the schedule.  Teams will be notified of any changes by email if this occurs.

  • League is not responsible for games not made up or rescheduled
