Coaching

Volunteers to coach or assistant coach must register to coach on-line in order to complete the mandatory KidSafe form.  Commissioners will contact those volunteers who are selected to coach in Early August. Coaches (or assistant or a team representative) need to plan on attending the MANDATORY Coaches meetings in mid-March. Commissioners will notify coaches as to the specific day and time for their particular age group.

If you have special requests in terms of a particular coach, friend to be on the same team or day/time practice conflicts YOU MUST NOTE IT ON YOUR REGISTRATION. We cannot guarantee we con honor your request, but will not accommodate ANY requests not noted on the form.

PLAYERS WILL HEAR FROM THE COACH BY March 24th, 2018.

Scholarships

We will be using the Fairfax County Youth Scholarship Form. Applicant can either provide proof of free/reduced lunch, Medicaid or other public assistance OR have the form signed by authorized school personnel.  The scholarship forms will be available at most area schools and at our in person sessions and may be mailed in to our PO Box or brought to one of the in-person sessions. You can also access the scholarship form at this online address:

Practices

Practices will start the week of March 25th. There are no separate practices for MicroKicks.  Minikicks (U6), U7, and U8 practice once a week and also have 4 professional training sessions a season. U10 and older teams can usually practice twice a week if they desire. We have multiple schools closed for renovation of the schools this season so practice selections may be limited. Coaches select day/time/location for practices and they will notify their team players of the details.

Games

Games will start April 6th. 
Game dates are April 6, 13, 27; May 4, 11, 18; June 1, 8. 
No games April 20th, Easter weekend, or May 25th, Memorial Day weekend.  

The SFL tournament for U11/12 and older is on the weekend of June 8th-9th.

The all-star tournament for players selected is on June 15th-16th and is hosted by FPYC in the spring.

Almost all U10 and younger games will be on Saturdays. Rain make-ups or divisions needing to play an extra game due to a bye week caused by an uneven number of teams will generally occur on Sundays.

U11 and older (SFL) home games also will also mostly be on Saturdays but as some localities do schedule games on Sunday, and rain makeups are on Sunday it is possible that SFL teams could have a Sunday game. It is also necessary for the SFL to occasionally schedule a team to play Sunday home games. Players need to be aware that some Sunday play is possible.

Equipment

The SFL jersey is not given to players as part of the registration cost.

SFL players all bought new jerseys in the fall 2018 ($31.95) and we will continue to wear those jerseys for several years.  Coaches will give new players their jersey number and then players can purchase the jersey from Cassells.

Their address is 2816 Towerview Rd Herndon 20171

Cassels also features other matching merchandise such as shorts and socks.

DO NOT attempt to purchase a new jersey until you receive your fall coach assigned number.

U10 and under players receive a shirt and socks each season as part of their registration fee.

Shin guards are mandatory and kids should have a ball. U5-U8 uses a size 3, U9-U12 a size 4 and U13 and over size 5. Cleats are not mandatory.
