Frequently Asked Questions

When will we be contacted about my child's team?
The coaches will receive their team rosters sometime in the middle of August at which time they'll contact players.  If you don't hear from a coach by the last week of August contact the Club Registrar: [email protected].

What will my child need to play?
Soccer cleats (not football cleats), shin guards (hard-shell are best). Everyone needs their own ball to practice at home.

What size soccer ball does my child need?
Teams up to U12 play with a size 4 ball.  U13 and up play with a size 5 ball.

When and where will my child practice?
Practices times vary depending upon the volunteer coach's schedule. Usually there are two after school practices per week. The locations vary as well depending upon field availability. They may be at Blue Heron Middle School, H.J. Carroll Park, Irondale Community Park or other school fields.

Do boys and girls play on the same team?
Generally, no. Usually, our teams are divided by gender, although some of our older teams have had girls play on boys teams to fill out the roster. Sometimes coaches will choose to have practice scrimmages with a boys or girls team.

Can my child come to practice and check it out before we make a decision to register them?
They can come to watch, but cannot play.  The club carries liability insurance on all registered players and cannot allow unregistered players to participate. Please don't compromise the club by disregarding this rule.

Can my child practice or play on another team?
No, players can only practice and play on the team whose roster they are on.

How big is the field?
U12 teams and under play "modified" soccer on a smaller field. U13 and over teams play "full-field" soccer; the field size varies but generally is about 50 x 100 yards.

How many players on a team?
U10: 9v9, max roster size 12. U11 and U12: 9v9, max roster size 14; U13-U15: 11v11, max roster size 18; U16-U19 11v11, max roster size 22.

How do I get a uniform for my child?
Each player buys their uniform kit (teal jersey, black shorts, black socks) when they first register, and may use that kit for multiple years.

Can my child "play up" or "play down"?
Playing outside a child's natural age bracket is subject to the JC Soccer Club Team Formation Policy and allowed only in certain instances.

  1. Players with a confirmed medical condition may only play down with doctor’s note, appropriate forms filled out, and NSYSA/WYS approval. This process must be followed each year that a playdown is requested.

  2. Players may play up under certain circumstances:

    1. If a player’s correct age group has enough players and there is space on the older team, a player may play up at parent’s request and with board approval.

    2. If a team is not available in the player’s age group and there is space on the older team, a player may be given the option to play up.

    3. Age groups may be combined if needed to fill out a team. In this case, the team would play at the age level of the oldest player.

    4. If a player’s parent is the coach of an older team, that player would have the option of playing up.

  3. A player may not play up if the player’s appropriate age group needs players, except in cases stated above.

  4. Players may only play up one age level, except in extreme circumstances subject to board discretion.
