Recreational Coed Adult Soccer League
Fall 2018 Season games will start on Sept 7th. Season should consist of 10 games and end on Nov 16.
Fall REGISTRATION will be via online system. Registration is OPEN at this time. Players can show up before a game and register and pay then play. Players can register after the teams are formed and games start if there is space still available.
Fall Season will consist of about 10 weekly games. Both of the weekly games are played at the same time (7 PM) at PVF. Each week’s game are played on Friday night. All Friday night games will start at 7 PM. Currently NOT planning to have any Sunday games. All games scheduled to be played at Pleasant Valley Fields (PVF) sports complex. Back up site is Woodcreek Park (only used for possible rain out make up games). Players are assigned to teams. League provides team jersey and socks. Players must wear shin guards.
NOTE: All games at played at PVF require all players and referees to wear ‘turf’’ type shoes. NO cleat shoes allowed at PVF (for adults). Cleat shoes can be used at Woodcreek Park.
Games are 11 versus 11 on grass fields (90 minute game time) with full size goals. We have paid experienced referee teams for each game. Each team has a team captain to help make sure everyone is playing and having a good time. Games are played with ‘free substitution’. So players can check in and out of the play as often as they want when they want. Goals scored by females are counted as two points. Note that a fair number of the league goals were scored by the ladies.
The league also uses a concept we call ‘protected player’ status during the game. The intent is to provide some protected time for new inexperienced players to learn some basic ball handling skills when first receiving a pass (outside of the opposing team’s penalty area). Any inexperienced player can decide (optional) if they want to use ‘protected player’ status during a game. ‘Protected players’ are identified by one white sock (along the other sock representing the team) during the game. More details will be provided at the pre-game meeting.
Players can register at any time (pre-season or during the season). But players signing up after the teams are formed are only placed on teams as space is available. If no space is available they are placed on a waiting list. Players can register at the games if team space is still available.
Note that $30 of the Fall Registration cost goes to National AYSO. This National AYSO fee covers the player until August 31, 2019. Fall 2018 players who want to play the Spring 2019 season will NOT have to pay this $30 National AYSO fee again.
NOTE: League will provide team jersey and socks to all players. Players must provide own shorts and shin guards. All players are required to wear shin guards to play.
