The 2018 high school soccer season is just about here and soccer at the Shore is back with a face lift. Not only is this a realignment season in the Shore Conference, but the Conference agreed to reduce the number of divisional games by half. That means teams will play each of their divisional opponents just one time each.

That change will have some obvious ramifications - division titles could be decided by home-field advantage from year-to-year, teams can more easily avoid four-game weeks, and top teams from different divisions can schedule one another during the regular season.

All that should make following soccer at the Shore in 2018 especially interesting, but before you do, get caught up on all 46 teams with the annual division-by-division preview.
