Q: Who will be coaching my son’s team?
A: Coaching assignments will be made after tryouts. In general, we expect all coaches to be a part of training for all teams. The Director of Coaching will make all coaching assignments.
Q: How are teams formed?
A: We will attempt to make as few changes to player groups as possible, while incorporating new players. There is always the possibility of some changes based on numbers. For the 2017-18 seasons, the 04 age group (and possibly the 05 age group) will be moving to 11v11, so the teams around them may be affected. This is true for all competitive soccer clubs. The Director of Coaching and the Technical Director will be in charge of all finalized player assignments.
