What is needed for Games

What will my child need for the games?
  • Shin guards with long socks to cover the shin guard
  • Soccer cleats or sneakers
  • A Ball
  • Red/white reversible jersey
  • A full water bottle
  • shorts or athletic pants for exercise & weather appropriate
  • Optional items include bug spray and sunscreen
Soccer Ball - 2nd grade and younger use a size 3 ball, 3rd grade to 5th grade use a size 4 and 6th grade and older use a size 5.  It is suggested to put your name or identifying information on your ball, so if it is misplaced, it can easily be found.

Does my child need cleats to play?
Although shin guards are required, cleats are recommended. Many younger children are more comfortable in their sneakers. Older children will want the traction that cleats provide.  
You will want to purchase soccer specific cleats.  Baseball cleats have an extra toe stud that is dangerous during soccer play.  The toe stud can be cut off to modify a baseball cleat for soccer.  The sole design of a soccer cleat differs from other sports cleats in that it eliminates the midsole to bring the player closer to the ground.  The material of a soccer cleat tends to be more flexible with less ankle support, which allows a player freedom in their foot movement and to feel the ball at their foot. 

Can my child play with jewelry or beads in their hair?
No jewelry or anything that could cause harm to other players or themselves can be worn. This rule includes hair beads and barrettes.  Check with the Rec Coordinator if you have a cast or wear a brace.  We recommend that ears be pierced between seasons, because earrings must be removed to play. This is a Youth Soccer rule and not discretionary for the referees or club officials.

Can my child bring a friend?
Only registered players and coaches can participate in our games. Others are not covered by our insurance.

Why are the teams and spectators on opposite sides of the field?
Players and Spectators are kept separate to aid the coach and referees in team management.  It helps the coach to have all the players in one place. It helps the player to understand that his instructions comes from the coach during the game if he does not have the distractions of family around.
