Q. What will my child need? Players will need to bring a soccer ball, shin guards, and cleats to every practice.

Q. What kind of cleats do we need? When purchasing cleats, make sure they are for soccer, not baseball.  Baseball cleats have a "toe-cleat".  It is acceptable to cut the toe-cleat off if you purchase baseball cleats, but this needs to be done before the first practice.

Q. When will I hear from my child's coach? Coaches will receive their rosters and select their practice times at the coaches meeting (see the home page for dates).  Practice will begin the week immediately following the meeting, and your coach will let you know the day and time.  Unfortunately, we are not able to anticipate what those dates and times will be, so we are unable to promise any practice nights.
