"No Scores Weekend"

10/08/2015, 9:30pm CDT
By Coach Administrator

"No Scores Weekend" is this Saturday.

We will play our normal time and team schedule but players may be balanced among squads prior to the start of the match. Also, in matches with less than the normal number of field players, our kids can guest play to help the short sided match and get even more touches. Consequently, our players in attendance have great opportunity for more touches, more playing time and more fun!   

With the holiday and travel tournaments this weekend, we anticipate higher absenteeism for the Saturday matches. This is not a new practice, for many players this has become one of their favorite weekends and a great opportunity to make new friendships!

Continued this weekend: coach jersey pick up

10/05/2015, 8:15pm CDT
By Uniforms

If you are a coach and have not yet picked up your coach jersey, they will be available again for pickup this Saturday, 10/10 from approximately 8 am to 4 pm.

Pick them up at the red Sport Authority/AYSO tent next to Field 5. If you are not able to pick up, team parents may pick up, as well.  Please have your team number ready.

Please remember these guidelines:
  • All players must wear full equipment, including, uniform, soccer shoes, shin guards, and socks.
  • No jewelry is permitted on the field, so cut off friendship bracelets and remove ear rings before the game.
  • Bring a water bottle and stay hydrated!
  • Snacks are always an enjoyable part of the game, but please make them healthy and ask your team about any food related allergies.
  • Most of all play safe, play fair, and have fun!
