New Age Chart & Fall Registration Information

Fall Soccer Registration is just around the corner!

I know what you are thinking…we just finished soccer!  But with the shortened summer break, Fall season will start before we know it 🙂
Registration for Fall Soccer:
Online….June 7- July 16
Visit our website at www.millcreeksoccerclub.org for the Registration Link.
In-person….July 14, 5-8:30pm at the Clayton Library
*Registration is open to players age 3 & older.  (Must turn 3 by July 31, 2016.)
**We will attempt to form a 19U team this fall. Several of our players are home-schooled, but any child not playing for the high school team is welcome to join us.  (19U Players must still be in high school to be eligible.)  Games are played 7v7 on a U12 field.
RecPlus will begin practices at the end of July.  First games are tentatively set for the weekend of August 13.
Rec Division will begin with Opening Day on Sat., August 13th.
Little Kickers (formerly known as U4) will begin on Tues., August 16th.
The BIG change for this season is the new age chart!  We have attached a sheet to help you understand the division of players.  Basically, the new chart is calendar based instead of an Aug. to July system.  So…if your child was born in the year 2006, he/she would fall into the 12U division.  
Please do not be alarmed if your child is in a different division than last season!  Remember that fall is the time when players traditionally move up.  
Some of our players will move up early due to the new cut offs.  Children will still be playing with kids their own age or near their age.  
IMPORTANT NOTE:  The Soccer Board will only consider special requests for move ups this season if beneficial to our club. (ie: numbers)  Several of our players will automatically be moving up, and we are unsure at this point how this will effect our club.
Please let us know if you have any questions.  We hope to see you this fall!
