How do we contact our coach?

Coaches receive their team rosters and player contact information by the end of July. We give them 7-days to contact the player's family.  If you've yet to hear from the team coach by July 31, please contact the Registrar.

Can we request a specific coach?


How do we get placed on a team?

Once registration closes, teams are created based on criteria as selected during the registration process.

Can we change teams once placed?

No.  Once selected for a team, it is very difficult to change or move a player to another team.

When do practices start?

For Fall Rec League soccer, practices typically start the first week of August. For Bill Meyer League, practice starts first week of December.  Your soccer coach will provide you with the time, the days, and the location of practices.  Usually practices are one-hour (up to two-hours for the Bill Meyer League) at two-days per week, and at various schools in the local area.  Location are unable to be selected by players.

Will my kids be able to practice at the same field or time?

There is no guarantee.  We are unable to accommodate for specific practice field locations and/or time of practices.
