Mandatory Evaluation Dates: These are not try-outs! These are held so that coaches can evaluate each player’s skill, and then draft teams evenly so play is fair and enjoyable for everyone. Held at the NIBCO Soccer Complex on the following dates:**

3 year olds: Saturday, April 18 @ 9:30am

Volunteer Coaches: Head and Assistant Volunteer Coaches are always greatly appreciated! We empower our coaches to teach a skills development practice where all players have a fun, positive experience learning the game. **No coaching or soccer experience necessary, but attendance at the player evaluation (for your age-group) is mandatory, as is the coach’s meeting and player draft that follows the evaluation.
Miscellaneous: Individual and team pictures held during the season on Saturday (date TBD) by Action Photo. Awards ceremony will be held on the final game day (more details to follow). There will be All-Star games for the 8-9 and 10 -12 year old divisions.
