WHEN DO THE COACHES GET THEIR TEAMS? Coaches will receive their teams the last week in July at the pre-season Coaches’ Meeting.
WHEN DO PRACTICES BEGIN? Practices will begin the first week of August. After the coaches received their teams, they will email or call their players with practice information.
HOW OFTEN ARE PRACTICES? Teams typically practice 2 or 3 times per week – depending on the age group. Younger divisions might practice twice per week until games begin, at which time they might go to once per week. But it is up to the coach and the flexibility of the players.
WHERE ARE PRACTICES? Practices are held at League approved parks and schools as allocated by the City of SanYour child’s coach will decide at which field your practices will be.
WHAT EQUIPMENT DOES MY CHILD NEED? Shin guards are required to play soccer. Socks must cover the entire shin guard. Soccer shoes (cleats) are not required but are recommended – especially at the older divisions. Football and baseball cleats are NOT allowed in soccer – make sure you have soccer cleats.
WHEN DO GAMES BEGIN? The first regular season game is August 24th. Some divisions might play a preseason game on August 17th.
