    Field assignments will not be done until early May when we do team placements. Teams will play at the same field each week.

    My one child is playing U8/9 or U10/11 and my other child is playing U3/U4/5.  Can they play at the same field?

    Our U8/9 and U10/11 programs are will be held at Somerton Park (close to Marshes Golf Course).  Under 3 and Under 4/5 programs are held at different fields then the older age groups.  Young children can be placed at Klondike Park which is very close to Somerton Park.

    What time are the sessions at?

     All sessions are for 1 hour and start at 6pm.

    I have a child in the under 3 and under 4/5 program. They both play on a Tuesday. Will they be at the same field?
    Yes. We will ensure that all parents in this situation will have both children at the same field, however the children will be on different teams. However please note that we can only offer this the for under 3, 4 and 5 age groups

     I have signed up my twins for the under 6/7. Will they be on the same team?

    Yes they will.

    My son wants to play on the same team as their friends can you accommodate this?
    We will do our best to make sure that this occurs. Please indicate on your son's registration form who his friends are - full names are required.

    How long is the program?
    The program will start the week of Monday May 22nd and will end the week of July 24th. 

    What equipment is provided with each registration?
    Each player will be given a full soccer uniform (shirt, shorts and socks) and also a soccer ball.  

    Does my child(ren) have to wear cleats?  What equipment do I need to purchase?

    Children can wear running shoes.  Cleats are not required.  For U4/5, shin pads are highly recommended.  They are considered mandatory for U6/7 and above.

    How do I get my child(ren)'s uniform?

    We will be holding a uniform handout day where everyone will be invited with their child to come and pickup their uniform and ball.  Uniform pickup date will be May 13th.  An alternate date will also be available for pickup if you are not available.  Another person may pickup your child's uniform if you wish them to.  It is best to bring your child along as well, so that you can get the correct size for your child.

    Do you need volunteer coaches?
    Yes we do. Each team will need 2 or 3 parents to volunteer as a coach

    What assistance will you provide the coaches?
    Each coach will be asked to attend a pre season meeting where the coaching manual will be presented. The manual will explain how to coach in each week of the program.
