Adult Soccer SPRING 2021


Adult 11v11 Low Contact
We offer an 11v11 adult coed league that practices twice a week and plays games on the weekend. The program will adhere to a “lesser contact” rule during play to protect players but will follow FIFA guidelines except where otherwise stated by Rainbow Soccer. Teams will practice twice a week and play a game on the weekend. Games are played 11v11 and divided into 2 x 40 minute halves.

Teams: Coed
Referees: Yes
Uniform: Each player will receive one jersey per year (fall or spring) with their registration fees unless you change teams.
Fee: $100  

Over 40 Coed Pickup
Our over 40 coed pickup division is purely a "pick-up" soccer division; players will have 2 nights a week for pickup and Saturdays. Players receive two different color shirts to wear so teams can split up and play. We use the beautiful Rainbow Soccer Complex and we don't wear cleats. The fields are in pristine condition and flats or turf shoes work great.  

Teams: Coed 
Games: Saturdays
Practice: Two “pick-up” time slots/week
Referees: No
Uniform: Each player will receive two jerseys per year (fall and spring) with their registration fees. Fee: $80

July 23 update:

By the beginning of August we should know more about the status of our fall access to the Town of Chapel Hill fields (Meadowmont and Southern Community Park) which means we will know more about how our fall adult soccer season might look.  We anticipate that if the town fields are opened; the numbers of players per field will be limited by town ordinance for both practices and games. We will take this into account when forming teams and determining game schedules.

April 27 update:

As we move into our 7th week of sheltering in place and social distancing we hope that our players are continuing to find ways to cope with the many financial and social/emotional challenges that this unprecedented situation has placed all of us in.  We along with our board are trying to figure out our new normal going forward related to Covid 19’s impact on our small non-profit organization and our programming.

Last week Governor Cooper amended his order so that public school students in Grades K – 12 will remain on distance learning for the remainder of this school year.  Along with that order he has also outlined a gradual phased restart of the state’s economy and activities provided that certain benchmarks are met.

Our youth state association (NCYSA) has set June 1 as a tentative date for youth soccer activities to resume for the spring.  This date is within the Phase II range proposed by the governor which allows parks to reopen with gatherings of more than 10 people while recommending the continued use of face coverings.  With this date in mind we hope to be able to restart our adult league practices and games (with shortened playing intervals and lots of water breaks) and run our spring adult programs (11 v 11 and Over 40) through mid-July.  We have not finalized all of the details yet and do not yet know when the town will reopen the fields that we rent from them but we will keep you informed via this website and targeted emails as we are able to firm up our plans.

We look forward to seeing you back out on the fields later on this spring.  We'll continue to stay safe at home and do our part to help our state meet its goals so that we can all enjoy a lessening of restrictions and get back out on the fields as soon as possible.  

March 26 update:

In light of the progression of the Covid-19 virus in North Carolina and following the directives of the Orange County Stay At Home Order issued 3/26/20, Rainbow Soccer will postpone the start of the Spring 2020 Adult 11 v 11 and Over 40 seasons until at least Saturday, May 2, 2020.

There will be no club-sanctioned practices, games, or other activities during this time period. Our plan is to extend the season in May and we will update everyone on those schedule changes as they are finalized.

More information will be posted to the this website along with our youth website,, as we revise and update our season information..
