Generally speaking, for the COMPETITIVE DIVISIONS (Fall 2nd and up; Spring CYO Teams), on rainy days we play unless there is lightning, a downpour, or prior rain has made the field unplayable. If we cancel a session or games, we will send an email via TeamSnap and post it on Facebook. We like to avoid canceling games, as rescheduling them is very hard.
For the INSTRUCTIONAL DIVISION (Fall PK,K,1st and Spring Academy All Grades), we will play in very mild rain/drizzle, but not if it is raining steadily. As above, we will send a morning email alert and post the status on Facebook.
Dress your child according to the weather and have your child ready to begin play at the session start time.
PK/K - Size 3 Ball, Shin Guards, Cleats Optional
1st, 2nd, 3rd - Size 4 Ball, Shin Guards, Cleats Required
4th though 8th - SIze 5 Ball, Shin Guards, Cleats Required
A division is basically a way via age to group players. We use the child’s grade in school as the quick determination of division placement, however, the actual date of birth overrules grade for division placement. Divisions and age groupings may change due to the number of registrants. We currently have two major divisions in our league which are Instructional and Competitive.
The Instructional Division is a non-competitive learning environment. Each session players are placed into groups which cycle through different skill building stations. Each station is designed to provide positive reinforcement while supplying the player with a multitude of ball handling opportunities. Instructional division sessions end with several brief noncompetitive scrimmages where the focus is on having fun, passing the ball and working as a team. The Instructional division assistants act as the referee and game facilitators during these scrimmages.
The Competitive Division is also a learning environment however is structured differently than the Instructional Division. Players are assigned to a team with whom they practice and play with each week. In this division there are full length games, supervised by a referee, a score is kept and league standings are posted. At the end of the season there are either play-offs or a tournament for Bantam and Junior Divisions. The teams can be intramural teams or travel teams.
Instructional Division will receive their T-shirt on the first day of the season.
Competitive Division uniform distribution will usually take place on the day of the first game.
