- The 7 & 8 year olds are 2015 & 2016
- 2014 and up are to be registered on Travel Teams.
- There is No playing up or down in age groups.
- Please note that we will not be taking any request to play on specific teams with friends, etc.
- We will be starting at the beginning of May depending on the weather and the fields.
- We will run Mondays & Wednesdays from 6-7pm on the Stonewall Soccer fields
- In mini soccer we expect parents to parent their children (both on and off) so that coaches can just be there to coach. If there is a discipline issue coaches will simply have you come on to the field to deal with it.
- GUARDIAN MUST TAKE THEIR CHILDREN TO THE WASHROOM
- Please remember that the entire soccer committee is volunteer. We do the best we can. If you do have an issue/concern please communicate with us in a respectful manner.
- Please do not switch teams on your own because you are not happy with your group/team. If you have a concern let me know and we will work it out. If you are caught doing this you will be taken out of soccer for the year with NO REFUND.
- Due to the increasing in Mini soccer players and the decreasing in parent volunteer coaches the committee has decided that:
- We will have as many teams as there is coaches.
- There will be no more than 8-10 kids per team (depending on age groups)
- If we do not have enough coaches then we will draw names for spots (obviously if you coach your child is guaranteed a spot) and people will be given refunds if their child’s name is not chosen.
- Please understand that we CANNOT run without coaches. We need about 60 coaches. There needs to be 2 coaches per team.
- We are very flexible when it comes to coaches. Pair up with a friend and then your kids can be on the same team together.
- Never coached before? No problem! We have training sessions prior to the start of soccer. Everything is planned out for you, you literally don’ t have to plan anything. You just have to show up and have fun!
We will send out one email after we receive all the registrations/volunteer coaches names to give everyone one last chance to volunteer as a coach before we draw names for the teams.
Looking forward to a great season!
