Please click on the link on the Spring & Fall Youth Soccer page, you can always click on Registration is typically open from April 15th - August each year.
The Online Process has fields that allow you to request a specific coach and/or specific teammates. The teams are created by volunteer Age Group Coordinators, who follow this protocol: coach requests, teammate requests, players that played on the same team in the prior year, keeping players with the same school mates.
As you can imagine, with over 2000 players, we can only do our best to accommodate request, BUT CANNOT PROMISE THAT ANY SPECIFIC REQUESTS WILL BE HONORED for your specific age group.
If you are unsatisfied with your players' placement, contact the Age Group Coordinator and explain why you feel your player should be moved. It might be impossible that the request can be honored, but we will look in to it.
Players are encouraged to play within their own specific age group. Any requests to play up should be made to the Director of Youth Development. Please email email@example.com
