TAGS is an All-Girls league for ages u8-u12
With an eye towards increasing the number of girls playing on all-girls recreation teams, in the fall of 2017 Rainbow Soccer joined forces with a number of local recreation soccer programs including Woodcroft, Holt and Hillandale, to provide an all-girls league across southern Orange, Durham and northern Chatham counties. The inaugural season of the league was very successful with close to 30 all-girls teams participating during the Spring 2018 season.
Given the success of the league we feel comfortable moving it to it's own stand-alone website. This means that girls in the all-girls league who last season signed up through the Rainbow website will register for the Fall 2018 season through the new TAGS website located at http://www.tagsoccer.org. They will continue to have access to the same practice locations and days as their siblings playing on our Rainbow/CHU league coed teams.
All TAGS teams will continue to practice once a week with their volunteer coach. There will also be a TAGS camp this summer the week of July 9 - 11. There will also be some additional technical training offered during the season and during the winter; details of that are to be determined. TAGS players will continue to have a mid-season Festival Day at the Soccer.com center in Efland included in their registration fees. This day will include 2 games per team with other league teams that they may not have played along with some other fun soccer-based activities. The length of the season will be the same as for the Rainbow and Woodcroft recreation soccer leagues.
With the creation of the TAGS league Rainbow no longer offers Chapel Hill United all-girls teams. Girls wanting to play in our CH United league will be playing on co-ed teams.
We are looking forward to the increased opportunities for growth and improved competition for our girls only teams wanting to remain in a recreation soccer setting.
