WANTED: Volunteer Coaches for Fall 2021 Recreation Soccer with FFC

The FFC Recreation Program is built around volunteer coaches. Your commitment will just a few hours per week for practices (Tuesdays and Thursdays preferred) and games (Saturday mornings). If you are interested in coaching an FFC Recreation Soccer team, email FFC Recreation Director, Adrian Batchelor at: [email protected] to express your interest as soon as possible. Note that you can also express your interest to volunteer when registering your child or by selecting from available volunteer options from your FFC Account (requires registration).

Registration Q&A

  1. I don't see a U11 registration link - how can I register my child for U11? FFC uses an alternate year division program. Thus, we typically combine the years that are not listed with the year above. Thus, U12 consists of 10 and 11 year olds. Thus, our typical age groups are U8, U10, U12, U14 and High School (14+). However, based upon the number of registrations received in each age group, we may adjust the age groups to best balance participation. If this happens, the recreation director will notify you.
  2. I am registering my child, but I only see U14 listed - I was expecting to see U12 for her? The registration links offered in your account for your child are based upon their date of birth. FFC utilizes US Soccer's age banding for this purpose - you can see the breakdown HERE. However, we are FLEXIBLE when it comes to the age group bandings and want your child to be able to play with their age-like friends when possible. Thus, during registration, use the Coach Request, Sibling/Carpool Request or Special Request sections to add any specific note and requests.
  3. I see separate links for girls and boys, but I thought the FFC recreation program was coed/want my son and daughter to play on the same team. Separate links are shown for boys and girls, but FFC will default to COED in an age group that has insufficient registrations to have separate boys and girls divisions. Should there be separate boys and girls programs, the boys program could also be COED if the need is there.
  4. I want to register my child to play for a specific coach - how do I do that? Simply add the coaches name to the Coach Request section when you register. NOTE: not all coach requests can be accommodated. Whilst we acknowledge requests for coaches and will do our best to accommodate, our education-first approach to soccer and our goal to provide a balanced program for all participants may require us to make team adjustments.
  5. I want to volunteer to coach. How do I do that? If you are registering your child to play, a volunteer option will be presented to you during the process. If you are just volunteering to coach (without a child registering), simply email [email protected] with your name, best contact phone number and email address and we will take care of the process with you.
  6. Are the FFC Uniforms required? Yes. FFC utilizes BOTH RED (home) and BLACK (away) jerseys for all recreation teams. In Fall 2020, a new uniform was adopted, that will last through (and including) the Spring 2022 season. You can purchase the jerseys via soccer.com - a link will be provided after registration. Any plain black shorts and soccer socks can be used, so you can always use those you already have.

    NOTE: Soccer.com has identified that their delivery time has been longer than normal, due to COVID-related challenges. This may mean that your child's uniform may arrive after the beginning of the season; it might even be mid-late season. Naturally, this is beyond FFC and Soccer.com's control, but as mentioned above, the jerseys are NEW this season and will be valid for use through and including the Spring 2022 season. In the mean-time, ANY (preferably plain) RED and BLACK T-shirt or top will be acceptable until your child's uniform arrives.
  7. I have received the email link to order uniforms, but it states they may take up to 28 days for delivery, which means they won't be here before the start of the season - what can I do? For practices, any shirts can be worn, but for games we require the FFC jerseys to be worn. However, delivery delays can be a challenge. You can have your child were a RED T-shirt if you are the HOME team or a BLACK T-Shirt if you are the AWAY team until your jerseys arrive. We would prefer them to be as plain as possible.

IMPORTANT NOTE: We strive to accommodate any special requests (coaches, friends, age groups, etc.)but we may not be able to accommodate every request received. Earlier registrations are more likely to have their requests met that those who register later (or late). Our recreation director will work with you where possible. We also strive to provide a balanced, educational soccer program where teams are more equal in abilities. Subsequently, players may be shifted to other teams to help achieve this balance during the season.

Email [email protected] with any questions not answered above and we will do our best to answer them for you.

AGE GROUP MATRIX

In accordance with the new US Youth Soccer Initiative, birth-year registration calendars will now align with the start of the calendar year and run from January to December, rather than August to July as it had previously. The initiative will align registration with the international standard.

How to determine the birth year used for a competition: Birth year registration should be based on the year in which the season ends. For example, if a season begins in the fall of 2021 and ends in the summer of 2021 (ex: 2020-21 season), the players would be registered based on their age in the year 2020. Competitions that take place in a single year (ex: fall of 2020 only) should use that year to determine birth year. To simplify determining the age group, just subtract the birth year from the year the season ends.

Year Season Ends – Birth Year = Age Group:

  • 2021-2022 (Season) – 2008 (Birth Year) = U14 (Age Group)

  • 2022-2023 (Season) – 2016 (Birth Year) = U7 (Age Group)

Please use the matrix below to line up your child's birth year, which will show the specific age group for a given season.
