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 will be conducting a preseason coaching clinic to help everyone familiarize themselves with the basics and explain some rule changes for certain age groups. This is a great opportunity to obtain some good information. Date is still TBD
TEAM ASSIGNMENTS: Players/Parents should hear from their coaches by the middle to end of February, if you do not hear from your coach by the end of February... please email email@example.com
SPECIAL REQUESTS: Please note that the Club has decided to not honor requests for players to be with specific coaches or allow all or partial teams to remain together from the fall season. 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 begin the week of 3/5/2018. Your coach will advise you of your practice night and time when they contact you. Generally, teams practice on Tuesdays, Wednesdays or Thursdays beginning at 6:00pm but some may start earlier. Sessions will be at our fields located at Lakewood Ranch Park, behind Lakewood Ranch High School (5490 Lakewood Ranch Blvd).
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 🙂
GAMES: Spring is an 8-game season and games are played on Sunday Afternoons, usually starting around 1:00pm. The games will be played at our fields located behind Lakewood Ranch High School. The first game is on Sunday, 3/11/2018 and the last game is on Sunday 5/20/2018. There are no games on Sunday 4/1/2018, 4/15/2018 and 5/13/2018. In addition, U14 - U18 may play a game at either Blackstone Park or GT Bray.
We look forward to another successful Spring recreational season at Braden River Soccer Club.
