Plays Games Locally at CHISHOLM TRAIL HIGH SCHOOL (JV TURF FIELD)
U8 Boys Recreational Registration
Recreational soccer is that soccer program that is primarily devoted to the enjoyment and development of soccer players without the emphasis on travel or high-level competition.
The purpose of recreational soccer is to provide an opportunity for the participants to have fun, learn the sport and develop life skills including a life long love of the game. Recreational players are player who are randomly assigned to a team without regard to his/her abilities and skills.
This age group is our Soaring Eagles group, boys ONLY, it is age mixed with 2016 & 2017 MALE born players. Half of teams will be newly formed teams and will require volunteers to Coach.
Price Includes : Uniform (Shorts and Jersey), participation medal and insurance.
Teams are formed during the 2 weeks after registration ends. Players will be assigned to teams based on our team formation policy.
Children are placed on teams based on appropriate age grouping in their neighborhood PUBLIC school area. We do not honor requests for children to be placed on a specific team.
· Returning Player - players who played in the previous season will return to the same team by default
· Open Draw Player - players who played in the previous season but do not want to return to the same team may go "open draw" which will place them in the open draw to be placed on any other team; requests are not allowed
· Former Player - players who have played with EMSA previously but not in the last season will be placed in the open draw; special requests may be considered for any player who has not played with EMSA for 2 seasons or more
· New Player - players who have never played with EMSA will be placed by our team formation standards; buddy requests may be considered
After registration closes, the registration committee will open up late registration to fill available spots on teams. Team placement is not guaranteed for players who register late. All late registrations will incur a late fee.
Once an age group is full, we will allow players to register to a waitlist. We have players who may choose not to play, allowing a spot to open up and be filled by someone on the waitlist. Waitlist players are not charged unless they are removed from the waitlist and placed on a team's roster.
Frequently Asked Questions
What if my child can only practice on certain days?
Our coaches are all volunteers and set the schedule for practices. If you have schedule limitations, we encourage you to step up as a head coach for your child's team so you can choose practices days, times, and location. EMSA is not responsible for setting up practice schedules and locations, please do not email us asking when and where is practice.
How much playing time will my child get?
EMSA Playing Rules state that "each team member must have the opportunity to play at least one-half of every game he/she attends."
What if I'm unhappy with team placement?
It happens from time to time. We encourage players, parents, and coaches to work out any issues together.
