SOCCER OVERVIEW

SANDS and SAY


The Sands Eagles Soccer Program participates as a member of the Soccer Association for Youth (SAY). More specifically we participate in the SAY East area. SAY is a national league with the goal of providing recreational and instructional soccer to youth, prioritizing fun and good sportsmanship. The Sands Eagles Soccer Program competes in a non-select division (no try outs) and scoring is not officially kept, except for Striker teams during the fall season. More information regarding the league can be found at www.sayeast.org and www.saysoccer.org.



Supported SAY East divisions: Passers U8 (ages 6-7), Wings U10 (ages 8-9), and Strikers U12 (ages 10-11)


Spring is an 8 game season with practices starting in March, and games played early April through mid May. 

Fall is a 10 game season with practices beginning in August, and games are played September through early November. The Fall season may also include tournament play (depending on qualification and/or team/coach interest).

Games are played only on Saturdays and Sundays between 9:00 am and 5:00 pm. Teams are assigned to the same playing field for the season. Though that may be subject to change depending on field conditions at the time of the game.


Practice days and times are determined by the team coaching staff, and are usually held Monday - Friday evenings, with start times between 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm, and typically running no later than 7:00 pm.

U8 teams practice once per week. U10 teams often, though not always, practice twice per week. U12 teams practice twice per week. Practices last between 1 hour and 1.5 hours per practice, depending on coaching staff preferences.

Most practices take place at Otto Armleder fields and/or Sands Montessori, though there may be times/seasons when practices are held elsewhere in the area.

Practices begin several weeks before the first game (depending on weather conditions and coach availability).

Unfortunately we can not verify practices days and times for individual players until teams have been assigned. You may indicate practice days that do not work for your child during registration, and we will attempt to honor those requests to the best of our ability.
