Spring 2014 – Updates

The turnout this year for our league has been tremendous.  We’ve added 6 more teams and currently have  almost 80 more players compared to last season.  All of our team selections/distributions are complete, shirts are ordered,  and registrations are now closed.

I look forward to another fun and exciting season of watching our children play!

Updates

  • First games are expected to be on Saturday April 26th, schedule will be posted soon.
  • Pictures are Saturday May 3rd.
  • Last Games/Tournament will be on June 14th

General Changes

Game start times have been adjusted over previous seasons to try to spread out the parking lot comings and goings to attempt to make parking at both Wheatsworth and Hamburg Fields a little better.

PreK / Beginner Changes

In our PreK Division, the teams will play 3v3, 4v4 or 5v5 split on 2 fields.  We’ve tried this the past 2 seasons but the referees will be enforcing a max of 5v5 this season.  We will also be holding a fund raiser in May to raise funds for 2 pairs of permanent goals for this group.

K-2 / Junior Changes

In our junior level (K-2) we will be playing 10v10 (9v9 with a goalie).  After some discussion between the coaches we’ve all agreed that these numbers will work with our current team sizes.

3rd-4th / Intermediate Changes

In the Intermediate Level, we will also play short sided, but we are still working out the details.  It will likely be either 8v8 or 9v9.  This group has grown from 4 to 6 full teams this season so there will be increased diversity in opponents.  There will be 3 different start time for games starting at 9am with the last game starting at 12pm.

5th-8th / Senior Changes

This group has grown from 2 to 4 full teams this season so there will be 2 different game times one at 9am and one at 11am.

 

See you all on the fields soon!
