Welcome to the Spring 2021 season! We are glad to be back and able to play another great season of soccer. With the season quickly approaching we wanted to send out the most updated information we have right now with Covid and the weather depending.
For the first week of practices, we will be doing pool training like in the Fall, this means at the assigned time for your child’s age group you will show up to the KSA fields at Ivey Redmon and we as the coaches and staff will separate the players into groups and we will do stations for the practice. This gives us a better understanding on where each child is and how many kids we will have on each team. This season due to weather we would have been starting this Saturday the 20th, however due to wet field conditions we will have to move the season back by one week. With this being said we will start group pool training next week February 22nd-25th. Please see below for your assigned time. We ask that you try to attend at least one of the offered evenings for your age group, but you are more than welcome to come to both.
After the first week of pool training all practices will be with your individual teams to prepare for the season. Coaches will reach out with this information.
Once rosters are prepared in the next 2 weeks, we will be sending them to coaches for them to then reach out to each of you with your assigned teams. We do our best so keep teams together from the fall and to work with any requests you may have, however sometimes it is not possible for the balance of the teams. Once the rosters are complete, we will also send out the schedule for games. This will be ready no later than March 6th.
With Covid still being a big factor in our season and life we have put below the new policy for the season. We will keep you updated of any changes if they arise. Masks will be required at all times including playing and on the sidelines from everyone on the fields: players, parents, and coaches.
Thank you for your continued support and we cannot wait to see everyone on the fields!
