Soccer begins Tuesday!

Registrations are closed and we ended up with 120+ players.  This is our largest group of players ever!

We now have enough coaches and 12 to 18 year old player to have separate girls and boys teams. 
The 6 to 8 year olds and the 9 to 11 year olds will continue to be coed teams.

Some important reminders:
 
-Tuesday practices are starting at 6:00pm this year

-Our first practice is Tuesday Sept 2nd at Clark Park in Molalla.  Please arrive 10 to 15 minutes early to sign in and get a name tag for your players.

- Please read the new Concussion Awareness and Action plan document,  sign the confirmation signature page, and returned the signed page to Cindy Kercher or your coach by the 3rd practice.

-Initially your kid will be assigned to teams by age bracket.  However, during the first few practices our coaches may choose to move some kids to older or younger age bracket teams due to ability and size.  This decision is up to the coaches.  The goal is to place the kids on teams that will challenge their skills and reduce injuries.

-Kids are expected to have soccer cleats, shin guards and a soccer ball.   You player may miss out on many of the activities during soccer practice if they do not have a soccer ball.  See the FAQs for soccer ball sizes.  Also please put names on soccer balls in BIG letters.  There will be 120 soccer balls that have to make it back to the right family at the end of every practice.  This goes quicker when there is large names on the balls,especially when it begins getting dark in the evenings. 

If you have any questions please contact Pete Aldrich - 503-804-6248

IMPORTANT - Concussion Awareness Program

In order to receive insurance for 2014 we are required to implement a Concussion Awareness and Action Plan.

Each Parent, Player and Coach/Referee will need to read, understand and confirm the Concussion Education, Awareness and Action plan.  This confirmation signature page needs to be completed and returned to Cindy Kercher or your coach by the third practice or you student will not be allowed to play.

It is important to note that the Action plan outlines the requirements for Parents/Guardians and Coaches.   It is REQUIRED that each student have a parent or guardian at each practice and game.  This becomes more important now that there are specific actions to be fulfilled by a parent in the event of a head injury involving their player.   Please ensure that a parent or assigned responsible guardian in on site at every practice.

If you have any questions, please contact Pete Aldrich

Important Soccer Updates

Only 3 more days to register!

We still do not have any head coaches in place for the boys or girls ages 12 to 18.
We are still in need of one head coach for ages 9 to 11.

Based on current registrations we will have the following teams:
2 teams for ages 6 to 8 (co ed)
2 teams for ages 9 to 11 (co ed)
2 teams for ages 12 to 18 (co ed) - We have a total of 26 kids which will field 2 teams with 2 subs each.

NOTE:  Due to the difficulty of coaches getting to practice on time in previous years we will be moving the Tuesday practice time to later in the day.  Practice will run from 6:00pm to 7:30 this year. 

Our registration numbers are down from previous years.  We have 61 kids registered this year compared to 110 last year.  So, if you know of families that have played in the past, please remember to mention that the registration window is open now.
