    • “When does the soccer season start?”

      • – Soccer ball – Size 3 for First Touch thru-U7, Size 4 for U8-U12, Size 5 for U13 and older

      All training schedules are released prior to the start of the season.  Training days and times may vary between Fall and Spring.
    • “Can I request that my child is on the same team as a sibling or friend for carpooling reasons?”
      We can possibly accommodate requests for carpooling with one other player.  This request must be indicated at the time of registration for both players.  Siblings will be kept together on request, as long as they belong in the same age and gender appropriate bracket.  Please note requests are not guaranteed.
    • “Can I request that my child has a specific coach?”
      We cannot guarantee that a player will be on a team or with the same coach or Parent Administrator as last year.  Players will be reassigned from year to year in an attempt to keep teams competitive across the program.  We generally do not entertain coach or Parent Administrator requests from players.
    • “I have a conflict. Can I request a specific practice day and time?”
      Unfortunately no – practice day and times are pre-determined at the Club level to make the most efficient schedules for our coaches and cannot be altered.
    • “When and how will I find out what team my child is on?”
      The Parent Administrator will contact you once your child has been placed on a team roster.
    • “Is participating in practices and games mandatory?”
      Soccer is a team sport and participating in practice fosters a team approach to the game, besides learning and trying new techniques. Practices and games should be attended unless you are ill or there is a legitimate conflict with a school, family or personal event.  Please inform your Parent Administrator  if you are unable to attend a practice or game.
    • “My question was not answered here. Who can I contact?”
      Registration questions should be directed to the club registrar, while the Program Directors can answer any questions pertaining to their specific program.  Please remember that these people are volunteers and are typically only available in the evenings.  Click HERE for a contact list of Board Members and Club Officials.  Please note that we are unable to address questions via social media.
