HURON SOCCER ASSOCIATION

Registration Listing

HURON S.A. DEVELOPMENTAL FALL 2017

League Objectives: For many children soccer is their first experience of team play. Our house program is focused on basics of playing sports for fun and being a good sport. To that end no score is kept and all children receive trophies or awards at the end of the season.Team Composition:Our house recreation league is co-ed from the beginning to end. Teams are determined using the following criteria. Boys and girls are divided so that each team consists of equal gender. Ages are factored in so that no team receives a greater number of older players. Efforts are made to have younger and older players dispersed appropriately; however, parental preferences, requests are met when possible, and only if “fair” teams result along with such requests. Our club does not advocate “stacked” teams, as this is our learning league. Therefore, coach requests may not be honored to eliminate unbalanced teams.Practices:As in any other sport or league, practices are determined by the VOLUNTEER coach. We encourage coaches to provide 3-4 practices before the onset of the season, yet weather and holidays may infringe on this expectation. Since games are played on Saturday mornings the coaches set their practices during the season as they see fit.  

Practice & Games:All house games and practices are played at Washago Pond area at Willow Metropark.  (8) games are played in both fall and spring seasons.  The fall season game schedule traditionally begins the weekend after Labor Day. (8) games are played before the end of October.  Apple fest weekend is avoided for games in the fall as Memorial weekend is in the spring. The spring season usually kicks off in early April and ends mid June.  Registration is for current season only.
