Always assume that soccer will be held unless you are notified otherwise. Every attempt will be made to contact you as soon as possible in the event that games are canceled. However, if you do not hear from someone by the time you would ordinarily leave for a game, please assume that the game is being held. If a cancelation decision must be made closer to game time, there will be someone at the fields to give you notice. Also assume that we will play in a light rain as long as the field conditions are acceptable.
Required Player Equipment
All players must have shin guards, sneakers (soccer cleats are recommended), a No. 3 soccer ball and water or a drink for each game and practice. Players must also wear their team shirt (provided by the Program) for each game. For safety reasons, no jewelry is permitted with the exception of pierced non-dangling or post earrings.
Parents will be asked by the Team Parent/Coach to donate snacks on a rotating basis for all players at each game. Snacks will be distributed at the end of the game.
Practice times and day (M, W, or F) will be established by the individual team coaches.
