Soccer registration for Fall 2022 will run from July 1 - August 13, with late registration running from August 14 -17 with an additional charge.

2. What does my registration pay for?
A soccer jersey and a pair of soccer socks, as well as an end of season medal are all included in your registration cost. 

3. What does my player need to wear/bring for soccer practices and games?
Players need to wear athletic clothing for both practices and games. Players are responsible for purchasing their own cleats, shin guards and black shorts for the season. If players own a soccer ball, they are welcome to bring it to the Y, but please write the player’s name on the ball. 

4. How long is the season?
The Fall 2022 season will begin with practices the week of August 22nd. Games will begin the week of September 17th. Regularly scheduled games should end by early November.

5. Where are the games?
U4(Itty Bitty), U6- U10 games will all be played here at the Bell Family  YMCA. U12 and Middle School teams will play at the Bell Family YMCA and will also travel to play other teams and possibly the Brad Akins YMCA (Winder). These games and dates are TBA. 

6. Can I request a coach and/or another player to be on my team?
There is a space available on the soccer registration form to request a certain coach and also to request that another player be put on the same team as your child. This is for Itty Bitty and U6 ages ONLY. While we do our best to honor these requests, they are not always guaranteed. The U8, U10, U12 and 15U age groups will be put into a player evaluation, so requests are not accepted.

7. When are practices and games?
Practice days are any weekday and can be scheduled between 5-7pm. Game days can be any day besides Sunday. All schedules depend on number of teams and field availability. 

8. Can I request a specific practice day and time?
We do not accept practice day or time requests. Signing up for YMCA soccer is a commitment to getting your child to their assigned day and time for practices and games. 

9. What is the refund policy? 
To view our refund policy, please see the YMCA Participant Waiver form attached to the registration form.

10. What is the weather policy?
Soccer will be played in rain or shine. If there is thunder or lightning, games will be suspended for 30 minutes from the last lightning/thunder observed. In extreme heat, water breaks will be scheduled during games by the referees.
