We look forward to having your child play soccer with us this spring season. We have made minor changes that will hopefully improve the overall experience from organization to play on the field.
Similar to last fall, unless you are coaching, we are not able to accommodate player requests. Teams will be generally built by grouping kids by school. Siblings in the same age division will be kept together (unless there are compelling reasons not to).
NEW THIS YEAR. If you volunteer to coach, you will be entered into a drawing for one free registration next season. Each age division will have one winner. (one for Pre-K/K, one for 1st/2nd grade girls, 1 for 1st/2nd grade boys, etc).
Game times and Schedule:
Intramural games from Pre-K though Fourth grade are played on Sundays.
The season is planned for 8 games. The first game is tentatively scheduled for April 11 with the final game being scheduled for June 6. No games will be scheduled for Memorial Day weekend. If any games are cancelled, there are up to two make up games at the end of the season (Tentatively June 13 and June 20).
The final schedule will be dependent on the number of teams in each division. (more teams = more games = longer times before the next age group can play). The schedule is typically as follows:
PreK/K kids play first starting first, around 11:00 AM. Boys and girls play together (coed) in this age group.
1st/2nd grade kids play next. The boys and girls play separately.
3rd/4th grade kids typically begin play mid to late morning going into the afternoon. Girls and boys typically play separately. However, low registration in the fall required us to play coed. This age group plays on a different field than the younger kids.
The schedule is finalized after all teams are built and coaching vacancies are filled. Efforts are made to minimize coaching conflicts.
Practices typically occur during the weeknights. We encourage the coach of each team to find a time that is (most) mutually beneficial to their team. In intramurals, most teams practice once a week. Teams may practice more frequently if they choose.
Coaching and Volunteering:
Please consider coaching and/ or volunteering. Without volunteers to coach, we don’t have a season. It is fun, rewarding, and doesn’t take a whole lot more time than you already spend as a spectator. You will need to get a background check done and take concussion training. The process is easy and at no cost to you. We can also help you learn the rules of the game. Additional volunteers for support tasks are also needed and are key to the success of the season. Volunteering for support tasks includes weekly painting of the lines on the field, distributing uniforms, and organizing gear bags. If you have questions about what this takes, please contact Myles Bartos @ email@example.com.
