Practice days are either on Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday. The days, time, field assignment will be assigned to each coach based on their availability.
Where does the registration fee go?
Though all monies the club collects assists in the overall operation of the club, registration monies are used more specifically for each player for such things as trophies, team/individual photos and an opening day gift. Registration monies are also used to register the player with the Capital Valley Youth Soccer League which then provides insurance for the player through CYSA.
Why must a new picture of my player be submitted every season?
Your child's photo is used to make 'player pass', which the referees check before each game to verify that the player is indeed affiliated with a specific team. Player passes are made new each season which requires a new picture be submitted of each player. Passes from previous years cannot be used as they are dated for that specific season.
Can I use the 'hospital' issued birth certificate to register my child?
No. The document provided by the hospital is an 'unofficial' document. For registration purposes only 'official' birth certificates as issued by State or County Records Offices can be used to verify the players age.
When will I be notified about my child's team and coach?
Registrations are held through the end of June. Teams are formed at the beginning of July. The team roster will be given to the coaches at their first meeting on July 16thth. Most coaches will begin calling their teams within a week from that date. Practices may officially begin on August 1st.
What is the age requirement?
Any child age 4 through 18 years old on or before December 31st 2016 may register to play. If a player is younger than 4 or older than 18 on this date, they cannot register this season.
*With the start of the 2016-2017 playing season, the age calculation will be based on the calendar year that is from January 1 – December 31. The playing age is derived from subtracting the ending year of the seasonal playing year, minus the birth. If a birth year falls outside of the ranges specified in the matrix below, a playing age will not be displayed as the player is either too old, or too young.
