How old can the players be to play soccer?
The age determination for each division is based on the Georgia Soccer Birth Year Chart. You can find this info under the registration tab. Our divisions start at U4 and go thru U19.
How do I know what age group my child will play in?
The players are split up by their birth year (see registration tab for birth year chart) as required for registration. The groups are designated as U-6, U-8, U-10, U-12 and so on. U-6 means Under 6, i.e. 4 and 5 year olds. U-8 means Under 8, i.e. 6 and 7 year olds, and so on. A player may play up in an age group but can not play down. Therefore, a 6 year old could play U-8, but a 8 year old can not play U-6.
When is the soccer season?
Soccer is played in two seasons during a calendar year.
The Fall season starts with registration being held in June. The practice sessions will then begin in August with the playing season starting the first weekend in September and running for approximately 10 weeks.
The Spring season starts with registration in December. Practice starts in February with the games starting the first weekend in March.
The season will run for approximately 10 weeks.
Are all the games on Saturday?
Currently, there are some games that are played on Sunday to Friday. MOST of all the games will be on Saturday, but you may have an occasional game not on a Saturday. Practice is typically on either Mon. & Wed. or Tues. & Thurs. of each week.
What equipment is required to play?
ALL players MUST have shin guards to be allowed to play in a game or to practice. The shin guards MUST be made of an approved material and may not be "home-made" of any kind. Cleats are optional (but recommended). Players may play in regular tennis shoes. The uniform will be distributed by the coach after the team has formed.
