Pre-Season Evaluations

The purpose of the evaluations is to give the coaches a better idea of each child’s different attributes and abilities.

Regardless of skill level, all children will be selected for a team.

Age groups depend on the player’s birth year (please double-check your age group).


Coaches draft their teams immediately after the evaluations.

They will call you to set up practice times.

Call your Division Commissioner if you have not been notified by your child’s coach 4 to 5 days following the draft.

Teams will likely have their first practice the week after evaluations.

Season / Schedule / Practices

All games will be played at 4th Ave. and Brown Road Soccer Fields.

Games will be played on Saturday and weekday evenings.

Coaches set practice schedules, but there are typically 1 or 2 a week.

Most practices take place on Tuesdays and Thursdays.


Our goal is to teach the game of soccer and good sportsmanship while having fun. The coaches are volunteers, and the referees aren’t paid enough to deal with abuse.

No parent, guardian, or spectator can confront a referee or player anytime.

All questions need to be brought to the Division Commissioner. If a parent, guardian, or spectator is asked to leave due to unsportsmanlike conduct, their child will leave the game. We have had very few problems. We thank your support for this.

For your child's safety, please remove all jewelry on their person before practice or games.

We cannot stress enough that this is recreational soccer primarily focused and the fun and enjoyment of children.

Coach Information

Our first contact for coaches will be after the registration is closed. We wait until the final registration to see how many teams we will have, which dictates how many coaches we need. In most cases, we need coaches in addition to those who volunteered.

Division Commissioners: Commissioners call coaches 4-5 days following registration to verify they intend to coach

Coaches meeting: This occurs on the Thursday they are contacted. This is to share details about the season and sign the code of conduct.

Evaluations: On the Saturday of the same week, we will run drills where you can evaluate every player and select your team in a draft. If you cannot attend, either have a stand-in or assistant coach, or let us know, and we can assist with your team selection.

First practices: This occurs the week after evaluations.

First game: First games are typically 1-2 weeks after evaluations, depending on the season schedule.

Refunds: We refund signup fees for one child per team that you coach for.
