2017/2018 RECREATIONAL SOCCER SEASON INFORMATION
Please review the information below, it should answer most of your questions regarding the upcoming 2018 Spring Rec Soccer Season. If you still have questions or need assistance, please email: email@example.com.

PARENT MEETINGS: All necessary information was sent via email.
COACHES: Volunteer coaches are always needed!! If you selected to volunteer as your child’s coach during the registration process, we will be in touch soon. If you did not sign up during the registration process but would like to volunteer as a coach, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org We conducted 2 preseason coaching clinics to help everyone familiarize themselves with the basics and explain some rule changes for certain age groups.
TEAM ASSIGNMENTS: Players/Parents should hear from their coaches by the middle to end of February.
SPECIAL REQUESTS: Please note that the Club does not honor special requests for players to be with specific coaches or allow all or partial teams to remain together. We found that the teams that were doing so got an unfair advantage and it was causing some very lopsided games. As such, we will allow the coaches to keep two players, their child and an assistant coach’s child. If there is not an assistant, the coach can reserve one other player. We do not anticipate making exceptions to this. If you have made a request for a specific coach on your registration form, we will not be considering those and will also not be sending individuals emails out letting you know that.
We will, however, honor requests for specific practices nights and, as always, will do our best to accommodate those requests. We also try our best to accommodate requests to be placed with another player if those requests are reasonable.
PRACTICE: Sessions began the week of 3/5/2018. Generally, teams practice Monday thru Thursday Eves beginning at 6:00pm but some may start earlier or later. Sessions will be at our fields located at Lakewood Ranch Park.
EQUIPMENT NEEDED BY PLAYERS: Players are required to wear shin guards at all practices and games. They should also bring a ball with them to each practice. Ball sizes are: U5-U8 – Size 3; U9 – U12 – Size 4; and U13 – U18 – Size 5. Soccer cleats are recommended for all ages. Please include ample water and most important a winning smile 🙂
