How are games structured?

U5 & U6 Divisions: Games are played 6 on 6 with no designated goal keeper on a micro sized field. Game time is two 20 min halves with a 5 min break in between. Coaches referee the games and work with the players on the field during the game.

For U7 - U16 Divisions: Games are played 6 on 6 plus a goal keeper on each side. Games are played on a Mini sized field. Game time is two 25 minute halves with a 5 minute break in between. Note: game times may be shortened due to approaching weather or darkness. Referees are provided and coaches are not permitted on the field during game time.



Do boys and Girls play together?

For U5, U6: Teams are Co-ed.

For U7 and up: Teams will be gender specific.



Where are Practices held and how often?

Each team's practice times, location, and frequency will be set by SWYSC. SWYSC recommends to each coach a 1 hour practice at least once per week (weather dependant).



What if a game or practice is cancelled due to bad weather?

If a practice is cancelled due to bad weather, your coach will reschedule the practice if necessary.

If a game is cancelled due to bad weather, efforts will be made to make up the game. Unfortunately the season can not go beyond mid August and therefore there is a possibility that some games may not be rescheduled if soccer pitches are not available.

Note: Bad weather is defined as lightning in the area, heavy rain, or high winds. Games will be played in light rain conditions.



Now that I have registered, when will my coach contact me?

We expect to have team rosters to the coaches by the end of April prior to commencement of the soccer season. You should expect a call within days of the coaches receiving their team rosters. If you have not received a call by May 1, 2010 please check our website for information. If the website does not offer the necessary information, please contact SWYSC @ 519-564-9285



Does registering with SWYSC allow me to use the Child Fitness Tax Credit?

Yes, SWYSC will provide you with an official receipt that can be used towards the $500 Child Fitness Tax Credit limit. For more information on this tax credit visit: http://www.cra-arc.gc.ca/whtsnw/fitness-eng.html



Are you looking for Coaches?

Yes. With the growing number of children interested in playing soccer, there is a higher demand for coaches. If your or anyone you know is interested in coaching, please contact us @ 519-564-9285 . Some benefits of coaching are: you can select your child and two friends to be on the team and you set practice times and locations. Coaches will be required to obtain a police clearance which the fee will be reimbursed by SWYSC. Community service hours will be given to high school students looking to meet their 40 hour requirements.



Are you looking for volunteers other than coaches?

Yes. There are several ways in which you can help the club by volunteering your time. Contact us at 519-564-9285 to express your interest and to discuss possible roles you can support. Community service hours will be given to high school students looking to meet their 40 hour requirements.



Are you looking for team sponsorship?

Yes. Corporate sponsorship is key to us providing the lowest possible fees to our players. If your company is willing to sponsor a team in our club, please contact us at 519-564-9285 for more information.



Can I make special requests for which team my children plays on?

SWYSC does not guarantee any special requests will be honoured. However, accommodations have been made for extraordinary circumstances like twins, siblings within same division, and extended families to ensure these players are placed on the same team.

Do you charge late fees?

SWYSC does not have a policy for charging late fees. We do however have a limited amount of spaces available. If you do not register early, you may miss out. If your age group is full you will be placed on a waiting list until a spot on the team becomes available (If one becomes available)



Do you have picture days for individual player pictures?

SWYSC will contract a local sports team photography company to come on site to take individual and team photos. It is the responsibility of the photography company to organize the picture day and to provide the pictures you have paid for. SWYSC is not involved with the purchase agreement between you and the photography company. We will make every effort to provide you with the best and most reputable photography company available.



Are there any programs for families that are financially disadvantaged?

Yes, there are several organizations that will help families in need pay for a portion of their registration costs. One organization we have had success with is the Canadian Tire Jump Start program. For more information, please visit: http://www.canadiantire.ca/jumpstart/
