Information for Players and Parents

ATTENTION: 

Team rosters will be completed at the conclusion of Fall Registration after August 20. Coaches will call about 7 to 10 days later to introduce themselves and note the first practice. We will have an opening day on September 9th for travel teams, September 11th for U6, and September 12th for U8. Teams, practices, and playing times will be dependent on the numbers in each age group.

 

We will have a 50/50 fundraiser this Fall. All board members and coaches will have tickets, or you may contact Rick Ferrell at 740-312-5895 or Dave Hahn at 740-310-4951.

 

Playing Questions:


The information provided here is meant to assist you with issues that frequently come up in conversations. If there are other issues that need answers, email or call Iggie Padilla after 5 p.m. (padilig47@gmail.com; 740-238-3500) or David Hahn (dbhahn45@aol.com; 740-695-4207). Parents may wish to have their child moved up due to experience or physical development. Coaches are not able to make that decision; David Hahn and Iggie Padilla must be contacted for these inquiries. Generally, our rule is that any child moving up must be emotionally and physically ready and, per evaluation, be in the upper 50% of the older age group in terms of skill and physical ability.

​​​

Pricing will also be shown for each age group on the registration platform. Pricing has not changed from the prior three seasons.

Play may begin on September 11th. Generally, the start time for games will be 6 p.m. or later. Lighting is available on all fields, so start times of 6:30 are good. Also, with the lighting, more than one team could play on a field in the evening. This will give us more opportunities to have referees at each game.

We do not have scheduled concessions, but we will notify parents if these are available.

Kiddie Kick:

Travel Soccer Teams:

​​

  • Equipment needed: They will need soccer shoes (not baseball or football shoes). Shin guards are required and should be worn under socks. Generally, black soccer shorts are worn. A game jersey with a number on the back will be given to players, which they will keep. Ensure the correct size is ordered when completing Registration. A black sock is worn by all teams and will be provided. The ball size is Size 4 for U10 and U12. U14–15 use a Size 5 ball.

    • They will be given soccer training materials.

    • Parents who want to become assistant coaches must also be registered and have background checks. Parents are not permitted to stand with the team and should never stand behind the goal area in games. Some coaches may suggest a snack schedule for the younger teams.

    • At least half of the games will be played at Capstone. Occasionally, a year-end recreation tournament may be scheduled. Games are usually scheduled after 6 p.m. during the week.

    • Official referees will be scheduled for all travel team games. Many of these referees are young, but their decision or call is the rule and final. We strongly discourage parents and coaches from screaming and yelling at the referee. Referees can remove parents, coaches, and players for their behavior at their own discretion and have been trained to do so. Failure to comply with the referee can result in, but is not limited to, the termination of the game or the parent coach being asked to leave.

 

  • Referees may be limited this season. Please be considerate of our young referees. We will try to provide referees for all travel teams. It will be helpful if age group coordinators try to limit one home game per evening for their group or stack games back- to-back so that a referee can do both.

Contact David Hahn at dbhahn45@aol.com or 740-695-4207 with questions on this.
