Intramural Registration Information

Updated Saturday April 1, 2017 by Terryville Soccer Club.

Question: What age and grade levels can play in the Club?

Answer: Boys & Girls Ages 3 - 13, grades preschool to 8th.

 

Question: I registered. What is next?

Answer: Wait to hear from us. You will be receiving more and more communications from the Club as we get closer to the April 8th Opening Day.

 

Question: What is the schedule for the Spring 2017 season?

Answer:

 

Question: When will I receive my team information, practice and game schedules?

Answer: Teams will be formed and activated on the website in mid March. This will trigger all coaches and all players to receive their team information as an email notification. When this happens, coaches are encouraged to start communicating with their teams right away and start making plans for the first practice. Coaches should plan to get at least two practices in before Opening Day. During these initial practices, the coaches will determine the team's practice schedule, typically something that is the same each week. Game schedules and field assignments will be posted onto the website on the weekend before the season opener. Each week you will receive email notifications from the website on upcoming games.

 

Question: Does the website have a phone application?

Answer: Yes. We encourage everyone to download the SI Play app for his or her phone. This will allow you to see scores, schedules, receive all team emails, texts and have direct communication with the coach and the rest of the team. TeamWALL is no longer supported by the vendor, we can still us it, but the vendor notified us that they will migrate all TeamWALL users to SI PLAY in the near future.

 

Question: I would like to coach a team. How does it work? What is required?

Answer: We have a registration for that. You can select Coach or Assistant Coach during registration. For the Spring 2017 season, coaches are credited for one player, so their child plays for free. Assistant Coaches do not receive a credit. For Spring 2017, all Coaches must pass a mandatory background check prior to the start of the season. Other aspects of coaching are addressed in the Coach's Handbook (updated for Spring 2017), through professional training and through Club Leadership. No prior coaching experience is required nor is there a requirement to have deep knowledge of soccer. Intramurals is a recreational program and it is about having fun together and enjoying soccer.

Question: How are teams formed?

Answer: Starting with the Spring 2017 registrations, we are using enhanced registration questions to allow us to form teams that are better balanced. Height, grade level and experience are key factors.

 

Question: I would like to ask for a specific coach or for my child to play on the same team with his friend(s). Is that possible?

Answer: Yes, we will do our best to honor requests, so long as it does not affect the balance of the teams covered in the prior question. We want to maximize the fun factor for our players and their families and we realize that playing on the same team with friends or being with a coach that a player is comfortable with are key.

Question: When are games played on Saturdays?.

Answer:

 

Question: In the Fall season, 3/4/5 and 6/7/8 grades were together in the same Division. Will it be the same in the Spring?

Answer: No. We decided in the Fall of 2016 to extend and include 8th graders in the Intramural Program. This is part of an overall effort to increase enrollment in our older grades in the Intramural Program. As families see our committment to older players in the Intramural Program we are hoping they continue playing with us which will allow us to reach our desired arrangement of having 1/2, 3/4, 5/6 and 7/8 graders together. In the Fall and this Spring we did not have enough 7/8 graders for them to be by themselves, bu if the current 6th grader enrollment is maintained when they go into 7th grade in the Fall of 2017, we will. That's why sometimes changes take a couple of seasons to bear fruit and fall in place. As we march towards that, this season we decided to keep 1st graders by themselves and have 2/3, 4/5 and 6/7/8 together.
