The benefits of kids playing youth sports are numerous, as they are taught valuable life lessons and skills that can be used for the rest of their lives. Teamwork skills become important later in life in work and family situations. Social skills are developed, helping kids cope with wins and losses in their adult life. Self-esteem develops through hard work and successes/wins. Just the physical activity does wonders for their health now and in the future!

The South Side Youth Soccer organization allows the parents to choose to play at either St. Julien Park in Broussard or at the Youngsville Sports Complex on Chemin Metairie.

The deadline to register for South Side Youth Soccer is August 17, 2018, and the season runs from September 8th through November 3rd, 2018. To register your child, log on to, call 337-453-2038, or visit their Facebook Page.
