2017-18 Soccer Registration Information

Soccer Registration is now open at: Saskatchewan Soccer Association Caswell Community Registration.

Please note that for 2017-2018 there have been some changes to the organization of the leagues.

How is Youth Soccer in Saskatoon Organized?

Youth and mini soccer is organized by Saskatoon Youth Soccer. The introduction to soccer up to age 8 is offered through the community association, after which the players move to one of the Hollandia soccer clubs. Players ready to make a greater commitment to soccer can move to the clubs as early as age 7.

Community Association soccer is organized by volunteer coordinators and coaches. We are always looking for more assistance. If you are interested in helping out please contact CaswellSoccer@gmail.com.

What are the seasons?

The outdoor season runs May through June (weather dependant).

The indoor season runs from the end of October through March.

The mini-SISCO tournament is scheduled for February 9-11, 2018. All Caswell and HBPMKW Community Association soccer teams are registered for this tournament at no additional cost.

What are the leagues, and when do they play?

Community Association:

Kinder Soccer Born in 2013 to 2015

Instructional play to build physical literacy and excite kids about soccer. Wednesdays: September 27 to November 1, Caswell School, 6:00-6:30 PM.

Under 5 (Co-Ed) Born in 2013

The focus of under 5 is on building elementary skills and learning the basics of match play. Typically teams will have one practice and one match per week. Practices and matches are usually held in area parks for the outdoor season, and in local school gyms for the indoor season. Games are 3 versus 3 with no goal keeper and the coaches are on the field to assist the children in the game play and to act as a referee. Parental involvement is encouraged. This league is sponsored by Tim Horton’s. For indoor 2017-18, weekly games will be on Tuesdays.

Under 7 (Co-Ed) Born in 2011-2012

The focus of under 7 will be increased ball handling and the basics of match play. Teams will have between 7 and 10 players. Typically teams will have one practice and one match per week. Practices and matches are usually held in area parks for the outdoor season. For the indoor season practices are held in local school gyms and games are played at the soccer centres. Games are 4 versus 4 and the coaches are on the field to assist the children in the game play and to act as a referee. Parental involvement is encouraged. For indoor 2017-18, games are expected to be Sundays.

Under 9 (Co-Ed) Born in 2009-2010

The focus of under 9 is greater independence in play and greater awareness of team play. Teams are usually 10 to 14 players and match play is 4 versus 4. Typically, there is one practice and one match per week lasting around an hour each. Practices and matches are usually held in area parks for the outdoor season. For the indoor season practices are held in local school gyms and match play occurs at the soccer centres. Coaches are on the field during match play to assist the players and to act as referees. For indoor 2017-18, games are expected to be Mondays or Tuesdays.

Hollandia:

Under 9 Developmental (Coed)

This league is focused on individual skill development for players whose primary activity is soccer and who have a high level of passion and commitment to the game. This league will have a minimum of two practices and one game per week. Game play at this league often does not follow traditional game play and focuses more on small sided games. Registration will be online at Hollandia Soccer. Please see their website for registration dates and costs.

Astra and Happy Feet Private Academies:

Happy Feet offers training at Kindersoccer and U6 ages and Astra offers programming for players in the U9 and greater age groups. All coaches have formal certification, and players focus on individual skill development with a greater number of sessions per week. Players in this academy may enter tournaments, but do not participate in league play. More information can be found on their websites: Astra Soccer, Happy Feet.

Who are the coaches?

Youth soccer at the community level is coached by parent volunteers. Volunteer coaches and coaching assistants are always needed. Coaching clinics are offered through Saskatoon Youth Soccer. Without volunteer coaches, the leagues cannot run. Your child’s participation may depend on your willingness to volunteer.

Do I need to play soccer in order to coach?

No. There are coaching clinics available and the focus at this level of play is on building fundamentals and having fun.

I would like to coach. How do I sign up?

When you are registering your child to play, please indicate your willingness to coach, co-coach or act as a team manager in the notes section. An early identification of parents willing to help out assists greatly when it comes time to make teams.

In which league do I register my child?

Community Soccer is available for kids born in 2009 to 2013. League registration is determined by birth year not age. Please note that we are not able to register Kindersoccer age players in the Under 5 league.

If your child was born outside of these years, you would need to register them through Hollandia Soccer Club, online at: Hollandia Soccer Club.

How do I register my child?

Registration is online at Saskatchewan Soccer Association Caswell Community Registration or in-person at Caswell Community School on September 13 at 6pm (front entrance). The active registration dates are announced through the website and social media prior to registration.

How are teams made?

Once the registrations are completed we compile all the information and begin to sort children into teams based on the number of registrations and the available number of coaches.

My child has special circumstances. How do I communicate this at registration?

We encourage parents to provide as much information to us at the time of registration so that soccer is an enjoyable experience for their child. Information such as which school a child attends, particular friends they would like to play with, or other considerations that could affect their placement on a team is very helpful to include in the notes section. We make every effort to honour requests, and appreciate everyone’s understanding if we can’t accommodate each request.

What are the fees?

Fees are set each season to cover the costs of running the league, registering the players for tournaments and supplying equipment.

Is there financial assistance available?

Financial assistance to join organized sport is available through Kidsport. Please see their website at Kidsport.

When do we get the schedule?

Saskatoon Youth Soccer prepares the schedule and the Community Association coordinators usually receive it 1 to 2 weeks prior to the start of the season. As soon as it is received it is passed to the volunteer coaches to inform their teams. Practice times are scheduled around the games. Once the game schedule for each team is known, practice time may be allocated.

What kind of equipment does my child need?

Please bring sneakers, shorts, and a positive attitude!

A pair of non-marking gym shoes is required for indoor practices.

For Under 9: shin guards and soccer socks are required and a pair of cleats for use on turf or grass fields is recommended.

What is the cancellation policy?

If you have registered your child in soccer and they become unable to play please contact one of the coordinators at CaswellSoccer@gmail.com and we will assist you.

I still have questions.

We are happy to answer other questions. Please contact CaswellSoccer@gmail.com with your question and one of us will get back to you as soon as possible.
