April 2021 Newsletter
Thank you for registering for the 2021 season!

We look forward to a season of fun, teamwork and good sportsmanship.  At this point our soccer season will be house league only.  There may be a chance that we might be able to be in a bubble with Wallace but nothing is decided or confirmed.  

Website – We encourage you to check here FIRST for any information you may need.  Also our Facebook Page is another great source for information.

Coaches and Referees/Lines People – are always needed.  Please email [email protected] or message us through our Facebook Page if you are able to help out this year and what age groups you will be able to coach.  let us know if you are interested in volunteering for such an exciting role.  Referees/Lines people are paid positions.  

Registration Policies – Parents and/or players are not able to request which team they wish to play on.  Players will be divided into teams by the Executive and coaches based on age, gender and ability.  The number of teams/division will depend on the number of players and coaches (no coach; no team).  At this time our registration link will remain open until April 26th.  https://howickminorsoccer.sportngin.com/.../form/670526878

Soccer Gear Requirements – Shin guards are required for all ages.  Soccer cleats are mandatory for U8 & up.  Players are expected to always bring their own water bottle and their own soccer ball to practices (identified with name).  Ball Sizes: KK, U6 and U8 – size 3 balls, U10 and U12 – size 4 ball and U14-U18 – size 5 ball.

Please be aware that right now our plan is to have one night where the kids practice and then have a game against each other.  We would like to keep game nights similar to other seasons.  Please note below that the game length times may be adjusted this year.   

Division Game Length Game Night

Volunteer Help – Not applicable this year.  If we should require assistance we hope that you would consider volunteering as needed.

Fundraising – We will be doing a fundraising program this year.  You will be receiving information in regards to this before our season begins so that it can be returned at our first practice/game.  We appreciate everyone’s efforts to keep our soccer fees affordable.
