|+ ||Field Usage|
Reminder that if you want to use a city field to practice or just get together, you need to go through the city and reserve the field. There are other groups that have reserved the use of the fields and we can not take the fields away from those groups. Just because the city says open, it doesn't mean they are free to use on a first come first serve basis. If a group comes out and says they have reserved the field, you need to clear the field and let them have the space.
This goes for Veteran's Park and Bachmann Park.
|+ ||NO NEW 7-Man Teams|
We have reached our limit on 7-man teams for the fall season. We still have room for a few more 11-man teams. Keep an eye out if you want to create a team for 7-man to see if we have any openings, but at this time the website will not allow for anymore teams to be created.
|+ ||2015 Fall Season|
Fall season planning has begun and we have some information to pass along to you all. Please, read carefully the information below so you know what is happening this season. You can sign up online or by going by ProSoccer and dropping off your form and money.
Games will start on Tuesday, September 15th and run through the first weekend in November.
Registration will start on August 24th and run for about 4 to 5 weeks.
If you want your team to get a game the first weekend - GET ENOUGH PLAYERS SIGNED UP!!!! We will not schedule teams who do not meet the minimum number of players. 7-man is 5 players and 11-man is 8 players.
11-a-side teams are back this fall. Games will be played at Bachmann Park (Southwood Valley). Games will be on Sundays and Wednesdays.
7-a-side teams will be played at Veteran's this fall - YEA!!! Games will be played on Sundays, Tuesday, Thursdays, and possible Mondays if needed. Games will be played on the synthetic fields and the grass fields.
Cost to play is $60 for the first team and then $40 for each team after that. DO NOT expect to play on a D1,2,3,4 team and then on a D6 team. Please, select the appropriate division for your team's skill level. We will be able to move teams around if we feel they do not belong in their current division.
Have color matching with attached numbered jerseys. Taped on numbers do not count. No number means you do not play.
IF you are going to sign up as a free agent, please email our registrar at firstname.lastname@example.org. Let her know you are interested in playing but are looking for a team to play with. Do not sign up, as you will sign-up/pay when we find you a team.
|+ ||Trash issues|
Action needed to be taken due to the amount of trash left on fields by players and spectators. Referees and officials will note trash remaining after games or game sets, excessive trash will be rewarded with an executive yellow card given to the captains of teams that were involved or played on that field that day. While this is not entirely equitable, it is the only method to curtail the trash residue through involvement of all teams. If this is not curbed, then prices for all have to go up to compensate for the increased cost of trash pickup.
|+ ||League Division Breakdown:|
