Pre-Season Info

For a timeline on the process, please click on 'About Rec Soccer' on the menu, then 'Important Dates'.

Once the registration deadline has passed and is in the wait-list phase*, the process is as follows:

1. Our administrators work on assigning over 4,000 players to almost 350 teams across all our locations, looking to insure that players are evenly spread across all the teams to provide a reasonable depth of squad for practice and games. As they go through that process, they will be taking late-registered players from the wait list and adding them into teams where space exists.

2. At the same time, our administrators will be matching coaches to teams, looking to recruit parent/volunteer coaches for teams that have not yet had a parent volunteer to coach the team.

As a side note, the rosters will be shared with coaches the week before practice is scheduled to begin, at which point coaches will then start the process of contacting parents and players about practice times and fields etc. For the majority of our programs, practices for the U5 and older age groups are scheduled to start two weeks before the first games on the season*, so please expect to hear from a coach at some point during the week before these first scheduled practices*. Activities for our U4 age groups though usually don’t begin until the week after our regular season begins*.

3. Assigning teams to practice time slots and fields.

4. Scheduling regular-season games, looking to have the schedules released to SSA membership approximately 10 days before the first weekend of the season* for the majority of the age groups. If you are part of a U16 or older team, please be aware that the state soccer association creates the schedule and in year’s past, the schedule has not been released until the week before the first weekend.

5. Produce and distribute player passes for teams when needed (varies by location and age group).

If you have any questions about the process, please feel free to check the website for latest updates, or contact your location Rec Director or administrator.
