FALL 2013 SOCCER REGISTRATION INFORMATION AND INSTRUCTIONS
As you register players there are some important things to understand:
Soccer Ages: The soccer age of a player is set for the year based on the player’s age on July 31, 2013. That soccer age will stay the same until next July 31, even when the player has a birthday. In soccer, age groups are defined as under a given year, such as Under 10 (U-10). So for example a player with a Soccer Age of 9 will play in the age group Under 10 (U-10). When the player reaches a Soccer Age of 10, he/she will play U-11. Players may not play in an age group younger than their designated age group. In some circumstances players may play up in age groups, but the Homewood Soccer Program does not encourage it. (Patriot players with birthdates in August or September may request to play up with their class level). If a parent wants to have that option considered they must send an email to the Soccer Director at email@example.com with an explanation.
Patriots: Friday, August 24, 2013. Registrations will not be accepted after this date until full.
Red Teams: Saturday, August 24. 2013. Team organization will begin on that date, but registrations will continue to be accepted until team rosters are full.
Blue Teams: Players receive offers during the Try Out periods in early June and there is a Blue Team Player Identification try out in Early January which can lead to player offers. See the Blue Team FAQ section for additional information.
The registration process works better if you can complete it at one time. If you must stop, when you return, just log in and follow the instructions. Near the end of the process you will be presented with an order summary listing the fees due. On that same page you will be offered a chance to make a donation to the Homewood Soccer Program. Your consideration will be appreciated. You may pay the fees by credit card (Visa or MasterCard only) or by check, mailed to Homewood Soccer. Bank drafts are also offered as an option. After you have completed the payment part of the process, be sure to push the submit button.
Following your registration submission an email confirmation will be sent to the “Family email Address.” Homewood Soccer Club offers a program of Financial Aid and Payment Plans. If you experience any problems with the registration process, please contact David Putman, Soccer Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 979-8974.
