REGISTER

PRACTICE/GAME:

Teams practice and play on the same day.

Practice time/skills development – all players have a ball supplied for practice.   Former pro Aaron Kerr,  has designed a training program  that will introduce them to basic soccer concepts – parents are welcome to participate! Professional Coaches  lead the practice with coach volunteers participating in working with their teams.

In accordance with Long Term Player Development U8 will play 5v5 -meaning more playing time, more ‘touches’ for each player with the ball during a game atmosphere.   We do not keep scores – the players are all encouraged to have fun and  Match Officials or Game Leaders will be used to introduce the players to the Laws of the Game.

Medical Form

Each player needs a medical form on file in case of emergencies.

Photo Day

Each registered player will receive one free team and one free individual photo. Picture Day is in June and you will receive a schedule on the first day.  The schedule will also be posted on the website.  Please note there are no retake or alternate days.

Weather Policy

Our soccer program runs rain or shine. The only time soccer is cancelled is if there is lightening/thunderstorms. Please check the home page of the website, your email and club social media for up to date cancellations and field closures. When faced with  heat alerts, our Coaches will have the players take more frequent breaks to ensure that they stay properly hydrated. Please always make sure your player has water at the fields. If you forget your water bottle, the concession is usually open.

Parental Supervision

This age group requires that a parent/guardian MUST be on-site (i.e. at the field) each week. Should you need to leave the area (i.e. take another child to the bathroom, run to your car etc) please ensure that you designate another parent (not one of your coaches) to keep an eye on your player. Our coaches’ responsibility is to ensure that each player has a great time at both the practice and game – they are not babysitters.

Uniforms

Registration includes a full soccer uniform – team jersey, shorts and socks . Uniforms  will be handed out on the first day when players will meet their coaches and participate in an abbreviated program.

Equipment

Shin guards are mandatory equipment for your player. Please ensure that you have them with you each week – as your player will not be allowed to participate if they do not have them. Players must wear running shoes or soccer cleats.  Soccer cleats are optional for U4.

Jewelry

For safety,  all jewelry, with the exception of medical alert bracelets and necklaces, must be removed prior to soccer, including piercings. Activity Trackers or ‘Fit Bits’ may not be worn.
