 Practices will begin Mid-February and games will fire up March 16th! 
Waitlist is first - come - first - serve as needed to fill roster spaces.



Q: How are players placed into age divisions?
A: Our system will automatically place your kicker into the correct age division based on
BIRTH YEAR for Membership Year 2023

   
           2018 KickStarters (U6)..first season playing games, 1 practice per week and 20 minutes before Saturday kickoff, plays 4v4

Q: Can I request that my child "play up/down" a division?
A: If your player is already playing up in a division from a previous season, they may continue to do so. HOWEVER, due to an overwhelming number of requests for players to play in different age division, we will now be keeping players in the division in which their birth year falls.
                                                 

Q: What will my players schedule look like?
A: Teams U8 and above will practice twice a week. Please note that practice schedules are set BY THE TEAM'S COACH. Coaches may choose to practice M/Th or T/F or even Sunday Afternoons!
*Please note that the only way to ensure that your child’s practices fit into your family’s schedule is to volunteer to coach your players team!
Kickstarters practices Thursday evening and may also meet again for a quick 20 practice just before their Saturday morning games!

**THE IR GAME SCHEDULE IS USUALLY RELEASED THE WEEK BEFORE GAMES BEGIN 
AND WILL BE SENT TO ALL REGISTERED/TRAINED COACHES ASAP...
 

Q; How is the seasonal practice schedule set?
A: Coaches may choose between M/Th, T/F, and even Wednesdays and Sundays to set practices. We recommend that you do not begin practices before 5:00p on weeknights.  PRACTICE SCHEDULE (Field time) IS SET FOR THE SEASON ON A FIRST COME/FIRST SERVE BASIS

 

Q: Who sets the Inter-Regional (IR) game schedule?
   A: Christy Hendrickson, RC for AYSO Region 124 makes the IR (Interregional) game schedule. I have no insight or influence over where and when your child will play.       
Younger divisions be kept “in house”, meaning, they will not have to travel to other regions to play.
Playground, Schoolyard, U6, and U8 will practice and play at the 337 fields.
Teams U10 and older will practice and host HOME games at 337 but will be asked to travel to other regions within Area 5B including:
Maryville, Pellissippi, Forks of the River, Harrogate, Alcoa, Powell, Ball Camp, Sevierville, Lakeshore, New Port, Morristown and Norris.

Q: Who will coach my child?
A: Hopefully YOU!  All AYSO coaches are volunteers! We absolutely could not run this program without YOU! You may choose to have an assistant to help you with practices, drills, and game day decisions! More on that at COACH ORIENTATION (date TBA via email and social media)
Practices cannot begin until your child has a registered coach that has met all requirements!
Training, whistle, and coach's shirt provided. As well as shared soccer balls, pinnies, cones, agility ladders, arches, agility poles, etc.

Q: When will I be notified about my child’s team/coach/practice schedule?
A: Once your player's roster has been filled and a parent has volunteered and registered to coach, and completed all training, you will be sent an email! 

Q: Who will ref my child’s games?
A: Again, all AYSO referees are registered volunteers! We need parents to step into these roles in order to make this season happen!
MULTIPLE REF TRAINING OPPORTUNITIES WILL BE PROVIDED AT THE FIELDS...
TEAMS 10U and up MAY NOT BEGIN PRACTICING UNTIL THEY HAVE A REGISTERED REFEREE

Those players will need a Core jersey.
