When will we know what team my child has been assigned to?
The parent/guardian of each player should receive an e-mail from the child’s coach letting them know what team the player is on, the schedule and location for training/games, and what equipment to bring. If you have not heard from a coach by 1 week prior to the start of the season, please contact check our website to see what team your child has been placed in.
 
I have a problem with my son's coach. Who can I talk to about this? 
We always recommend first talking to the coach directly (but please not during the practice, scrimmage, or after-game wrap-up). Coaches want to know your concerns before they become problems. Please just ask the coach when a good time to talk would be.
 
All our coaches volunteer their time and energy to help make your child's soccer experience extremely positive. However, we understand disagreements and misunderstandings sometimes arise. While coaches have a great deal of flexibility in implementing their practices, they are also bound by the club's policies and rules.
 
What equipment do I need to buy?
Players are required to wear shin guards and to bring an appropriately sized soccer ball and cold drink to each practice. The U6 and U8 kids use a size 3 ball; the U10 and U12 kids use a size 4 ball;
Cleats are required.  You can also order online through the www.Soccer.com link on our web site (our club receives a portion of any purchases made through this link).We recommend parents not spend too much on equipment (comfort is more important!) Kids quickly outgrow shin guards and cleats and often lose soccer balls (please have your child write his name on the ball).
 
Do we play if it rains? 
Soccer is an all-weather sport. Decisions about cancellations for intramural games will be made by the Club. Once a decision has been made that games are cancelled, an email will be sent out to all registrants and a posting will be made to the website. If there is no email or posting, then there are is no cancellation.
