The Elementary Soccer League in North Tulsa will Run for Five Weeks
TULSA – On Saturday, the Tulsa Dream League is back for its second season in 2022 with 13 teams. The first-ever free-to-play elementary soccer league in North Tulsa will kick back off at the Tulsa Dream Center for a month-long season.
Prior to its inaugural season in 2021, FC Tulsa helped to fund the Dream League with a $15,000 donation. The BNSF Railway Foundation, a FC Tulsa community partner, also contributed $30,000 to the league over three years (2021-2023) to provide necessary equipment and uniforms. A portion of BNSF’s donation will also allow participants to enjoy a night out at ONEOK Field to see FC Tulsa in action.
Last season, over 300 area children participated in the Dream League, free of charge.
In 2022, the Dream League will feature six 2nd and 3rd grade teams and seven 4th and 5th grade teams. Schools represented in the league around Tulsa will include Hawthorne Elementary, Legacy Charter School, Drexel Academy, Unity Learning Academy, Springdale Elementary, College Bound Academy and Wayman Tisdale Fine Arts Academy.
The Dream League is run and supported completely by volunteers, and the regular season will run for five Saturdays, with each weekend having a different theme.
