Sierra Oaks Soccer F.A.Q. 2011
What are the photo requirements for my child's player pass? RCYSL requires that every player submits a current photo with thier application. This photo is used by the referres to identify your child at his/her games. The photo needs to be a full frontal face view of your child, with no hats or sunglasses. The face of your child must be no smaller than 1x1 in and no larger than 2x2in, when measured from the hairline to the top of the shoulders. The following link has some great examples. http://travel.state.gov/pdf/Photo-Quality-Requirements.pdf Please note that passport photos are not required.
Can I request on which team my child plays?
Yes, you will be able to request which team you would like your child to be assigned to no later that 5/31/12. Your request can be made either through the online registration form or on the team placement/parent volunteer form at registration. After 5/31/12 no team requests will be considered. Please note that a coach can not guarantee that a player plays on his/her team. Once a child has been place on a team, they can not be switched, except with the approval of the League Registrar. Although we do try and fulfill each request, we can not always do so.
When will I know for which team my child will be playing?
Your volunteer coach will be contacting you via phone or email no later than August 1st.
When do practices start?
Practices can begin no earlier that August 1st, although some teams do not begin practices until mid to late August. Your volunteer coach will be providing you with the practice schedule for their team. Practice schedules will also be available on our website mid-August. Practices are normally held at the following locations: Sierra Oaks School, Winterstein School, and Larkspur Park.
When does the season start?
U8- U19 teams seeding tournament is August 25, 2012.
U8 – U19 games are every Saturday, beginning September 8, 2012 through November 17, 2011.
U6 teams do not play in a seeding tournament.
U6 games are every Friday evenings at 5:00pm, beginning September 7, 2012 through October 26, 2012.
Do I have to buy a new uniform this year?
Not necessarily. Sierra Oaks Soccer Club changed uniforms for the 2008 season and beyond. Players will need the current navy blue Club uniform to play in games.
What equipment will my child need to play soccer?
Every player needs to have soccer cleats, socks, and shin guards under socks at every practice and game. We also recommend each player have his or her own ball. For U6 and U8 players a size 3 soccer ball is needed. For U10 and U12 a size 4 is needed and for U14 and up a size 5 is required.
What is the Club's Refund Policy?
