SUMMER YOUTH:

 

 

Reasons US soccer recommends small sided games:

§  We want our young soccer players to touch the soccer ball more often and become more skillful with it! (Individual technical development)

§  We want our young soccer players to make more, less-complicated decisions during the game! (Tactical development)

§  We want our young soccer players to have more, involved playing time in the game! (More opportunity to solve problems that only the game presents)

§  We want our young soccer players to have more opportunity to play on both sides of the ball! (More exposure to attacking and defending situations)

§  We want our young soccer players to have more opportunities to score goals! (Pure excitement)

Game Conflicts:  Please double check the league dates above to ensure your team has no conflicts with the Arapahoe Sports Center league times. One request per team will be honored to help prevent game conflicts. Any team not able to make their scheduled game time due to a further conflict will forfeit that game. No exceptions and No make-up Games. 

 

Forfeits: if a team forfeits twice for any reason in a season they will be subject to immediate removal from the league and or will not be invited back the following season. In the case of a forfeit that both teams are present for, both teams are required to pay the referee's fees. If only one team shows they are required to pay their team’s ref fee to get credit for the win. Refs are paid/employed by the teams. The Arapahoe Sports Center does not pay the refs in the event of a forfeit or “no show” because they are employed by the individual teams and not the Arapahoe Sports Center.

 

 

Referee Fees:  Each team needs cash for the officials’ $12 for 6V6 & $10 for 3V3.  This cannot be included in your league fee as they are scheduled independently to the arena. Please try to have exact change. This is due at the beginning of the game.

 

Check in:  Please do all waivers & pay player registration fees online! Each player needs an electronic waiver release form signed by a parent or legal guardian. A coach cannot sign waivers. Any player without a waiver cannot play. Please have your player to the arena 30 minutes before the 1st game. We will then take their picture and print their player pass.

 

Coaches:  All teams must have a coach behind the bench, maximum of 2 coaches. No exceptions. All coaches must be a minimum of 18 years old. Coaches must have a player/coach pass.
