Q. I've registered for rec but I have not heard anything yet.
A. First, be sure that you have properly registered and the program is showing up in your child's GotSport account.  Your child will be notified within 7-10 days prior to the start of the season. 

Q. I'd like my son or daughter to play on a particular team or for a particular coach.
A. Unforunately, we can only accomodate requests of this nature to ensure siblings in the same age group are on the same team or when a player is associated with a sponsor of a particular team.  If you are coaching a team, your child will automatically be on your team.

A. Shin guards, socks over shinguards, a ball (size 3 up to grade 2, size 4 through grade 6 and size 5 7th grade and up) and cleats or sneakers. **Girls 5-7 recreation program uses a size 4 ball as they are a split age group

A. Registration occurs from June until August 1st.
