WHAT IS PLAYER EVALUATION DAY?

Player evaluations are not tryouts, but are mandatory for all age groups U10 through U14. This is a recreational soccer league open to players with all levels of skill and interest in soccer. We are coordinating player evaluations for the purpose of working towards a more balanced league where all players will have a positive experience and an equal opportunity to improve their game.  The kids will have fun doing various training drills and small-sided games.

MANDATORY PLAYER EVALUATION DAY

These are held on Saturday, September 1, 2018 at the following times on Field 4.  PLEASE ARRIVE 20 MINUTES EARLY FOR CHECK-IN.

U10 Boys & U10 Girls- 9:30am to 10:30am (2009 AND 2010)

U12 Boys & U12 Girls- 11:00am to 12:00pm (2007 AND 2008)

U14 Boys & U14 Girls- 12:30pm to 1:30pm (2005, AND 2006)

PRACTICE & GAME INFORMATION

PRACTICES BEGIN THE WEEK OF September 10th.  Practice times are determined by your volunteer coach according to what best fits his/her schedule.  SOME COACHES DO PRACTICE ON WEDNESDAY.  There will be two one hour practices per week made available for each team.

Games are typically on Saturdays and will begin September 22nd. It is possible for make-up games to occur on a weeknight including Friday.

All games are played at Ashton Brosnaham Park (10360 Ashton Brosnaham Rd, Pensacola, FL 32534).  The exception to this would be the U10, U12 and U14 divisions where these teams may "inter-league" with other local parks in the Pensacola area.

WHAT TEAM IS MY CHILD ON? WHO IS OUR COACH?

Teams will be built during the week prior to the beginning of practice.  It does not mean that you should have heard from your child's coach simply because others have as this process takes a full week to complete.

UNIFORMS

The league orders the same or similar style every season so that a player can continue to use his or her uniform as long as it fits.  When uniforms arrive, the coaches are notified so that he or she can pick them up at the field house and distribute to their team.  Uniforms usually arrive the week of the first games.  The uniform kit costs $35.00 and includes a complimentary ball as a bonus this season while supplies last.  The kit has a white jersey, red jersey, black shorts, and black socks.  Any further questions about uniforms should be directed to Dawn Hart at clubmanager@gulfcoasttexans.com .

SPECIAL REQUESTS

We do allow for requests in our U6 Coed and U8 divisions.  However, we do not take player/coach requests for divisions U10 and higher. You are encourage to makes notes when registering your player. These request will be considered on a case by case basis.

PRACTICE TIMES/DAYS

We understand and appreciate the many activities of your families but with over 750 kids playing soccer at our facility each season, it is not possible to accommodate practice schedule requests and conflicts.

Practice days and times as these are determined by our volunteer coaches.  Coaches are encouraged to practice 1-2 times per week M-F evenings starting some time after 5:30 p.m.  

You can secure your child's day and time for practice by volunteering to coach.  

YES!  YOU CAN BE A COACH!  THE KIDS NEED YOUR HELP!

The kids need your help to coach and provide a positive soccer experience. Our desire is to make the rosters smaller this year so that all kids receive more playing time and touches on the ball. You do not have to be a soccer expert, you only have to have a desire to work with kids. We will have a Coaches Clinic to teach parents how to run practices, games, etc...as well as provide ongoing support throughout the season. All of us had to start somewhere - take a step of faith and enjoy the rewarding experience of working with kids! Please let me know if you have any questions about being a head coach or an assistant coach.
