Our minis soccer program for U3, U5, U7 and U9 starts next week, on Tuesday June 13th at 6:30pm! The first night will be a slower start as players pick up their team shirt and are organized into their groups.
Finding your field
Your child's name will be on our website under the menu for the appropriate age group (U3, U5, U7, U9). Click through to the team and then select the "Players" menu. We will also have a list of the players and their teams at the field entrance for the first few weeks.
Once you've identified which team your child is on, use the Field Layout menu at the top to locate where your child is playing. This map also shows parking areas and how to access the U7 and U9 fields.
*Please note: at this time it looks like the U5 groups will be combined into one or two larger groups, so for U5 just head over to the correct area and we'll get them sorted out.
Dates and times
The minis season runs 10 weeks, from June 13th to August 17th.
The following information is available on our website on the page Programs and Information, but is included below for your convenience.
What to bring
Children should come wearing their team shirt and comfortable clothing; generally this means shorts and their t-shirt. Dress them in layers if it's chilly so they can remove layers as they heat up running around. Cleats are optional for minis thought they do make running easier. Shin pads are optional but we do recommend them - they can usually be picked up cheap at Walmart and other stores. Bring a water bottle, you can fill it/refill it at the fountain by the bathrooms. Sunscreen as the summer sun starts to hit us, and bug spray if the bugs decide to come out.
The club policy for all age groups is to play regardless of weather, with three exceptions:
We will do our best to send cancellations via email at least one hour before the scheduled start. We will also do our best to post cancellations on our Facebook page. As always, parents may choose to keep kids home for any reason. If playing in inclement weather please dress your children appropriately.
You're welcome to reach out via email. Our Facebook page is also a great place to get answers, as parents and other club staff can read and respond to questions there.
See you on the fields!
