    Hi everyone,

    When does the average high school soccer season start and end? when does the average high school American football season start and end?

    Also, I need the same dates for college soccer/football as well.

    Thanks!

    Well in soccer there is no hard and fast rule for HS. I know that in Illinois girls soccer, starts on March 1st and ends at the State championship around the first week in June.

    Boys soccer in IL is in the Fall.

    However, in Indiana girls soccer is in the Fall, at the same time as their football season.

    College soccer is in the Fall also, but I do not know exact dates. sorry-

    Our football season is from the beginning of August until beginning of Nov (playoffs).

    don't forget that the hs football teams start "optional" (meaning NOT optional) workouts in June as soon as school is out. In IL you could not play both HS soccer and football, they are the same season

    In Colorado high school soccer for boys and football are both in the fall, however, you can play both sports if the coaches agree, and many football kickers are also on the soccer team.
    High school games typically start late August or early September and end late November. A few championship games may continue through early December for both soccer and football, but usually it's all over by the end of November for both sports.

    College football games start the end of August and regular season ends around Thanksgiving, but if the team makes a bowl game, it can continue as late as first week of January (only a few college teams go that late, but about half make some sort of bowl game and continue into December.)

    Louisiana HS soccer is in the winter. Late October is when training is permitted. Football players don't joing the team usually until Thanksgiving week. Depending on their success.

    NH has them both in the fall, with both sports having "optional" workouts throughout the summer, no coaches allowed, captains run them. Start for real with double/triple sessions about 2 weeks before school starts

    In Georgia, GHSA starts Soccer in the spring for both Girls and Boys, Football is in the Fall as in every other state in the Union of course. But you do have private school leagues that start in the fall for soccer, but have no direct sanction from the GHSA.
