Youth Soccer (8U and up) Parent Information
Youth Soccer (8U and up)
Another year of soccer is about to begin in St. Andrews. This year’s session will run from April 29th – June 21st. There are some changes this year so please read this parent information carefully.
We will be playing our home games again out of Lockport School or the Croatian Community Centre. There will be no games at the St. Andrews Airport.
Please remember that parents have to sit opposite the players at every game.
No smoking of tobacco products are allowed at Lockport School or Crotia property 24 hours 7 days a week. This rule applies to all school properties so even away games in East Selkirk. Please adhere to these rules while you are attending your child’s soccer games and practices.
Coach/Team Manager/Parent Rep Descriptions
to our website that describes them. Please remember that if you volunteer you will receive your $50 volunteer fee back if you paid it at registration.
You will have to pay a $25 jersey deposit before getting your jersey. All Team Managers MUST get a $25 post-dated cheque dated June 25, 2013 for each jersey they give out. The Team Manager will take care of these cheques until your jersey is returned. Managers will hand back the jerseys as a set at the end of the year. Parents who have more than one child will have to write cheques for each child and hand them in to each team manager. Each cheque should be made out to St. Andrews Community Club for $25 and dated June 25, 2013. You should also write the jersey number and team on the cheque. If players do not return their jerseys on June 23rd at the tournament and if we do not get them back at the windup on June 25th, the cheques will be cashed.
Note to Team Managers- please keep the cheques and hand in the jerseys as a set or with cheques for the missing jerseys at the windup.
If you have outstanding fees please make sure you drop your cheque off at the Canteen in the community club ASAP. As your child will not be allowed to play until the fees are paid. The Canteen is open every Wednesday night but may be open other night depending on activities.
Missing a Game
Please let you coach know if your child will be missing a game. It is really important as some teams do not have a lot of spares. The coach then can try to fill the position if too many players are away.
It is up to the Coach whether your team will have practices and how often. It is really important for your child to attend as many practices as they can.
10U, 12U and 14U Coaches- Please let the convenor know when you will be having your practices as we have to let the Croatian Hall know. You can practice anytime there is not a game, they just want to be aware for security reasons.
Linesmen (10U, 12U and 14U)
We are required to provide 2 linesmen for every home game. The Team Manager will create a schedule for parents to sign up. Any remaining open shifts will be assigned to a parent by the Team Manager. If a parent cannot make a shift it is their responsibility to find a replacement. Every game will count as 1 hour towards your volunteer hours. Team Managers please provide the schedule at the end of the session to the Soccer Convenor for their credits.
If your team decides they would like to do a team snack the team manager is responsible for creating the snack schedule and distributing at the first game. It is recommended that coaches and assistant coaches be kept off the snack schedule as they have enough to do with coaching their teams. Snacks can be as simple as watermelon, oranges, cheese strings, muffins etc. We would like to encourage healthy snacks. Please email your team manager or coach if your child has a food allergy.
Protocol for rain days – It is up to the Coach of the home team to determine if the game will be played. Coaches/team managers will then email the parents of their team to inform them. On days when it starts to rain or is lightening while the game is in process, refs will make the decision to cancel the remainder of the game.
Once the dates, times and prices have been set for the soccer photos we will pass on that information. Team managers will then be responsible to collect money for all interested in the soccer photos.
The tournament will be held this year June 21-23rd at the Selkirk soccer fields. If you cannot attend please let you coach know so we can plan accordingly. More information will come as the date approaches.
St. AndrewsCommunity Club Summer Sport Windup:
This year the windup will be held Tuesday, June 25, 2013. More information will come as the date approaches.
