2021 SPRING COMPETITIVE PROGRAM
For ages 10 to 18 (birth year 2011 to 2003) for the 2020/2021 school year
Our spring season typically begins with a 6 to 8 week pre-season/indoor winter training; 1 to 2 evening sessions each week starting in January 2021. Spring teams will be formed, based on evaluations and outdoor practices will begin in March 2021. Practices are held 2 to 3 times per week, at the Coach's discretion. Competitive league games are played on Saturdays and will begin around the first weekend of April and run through mid-June. The season ends with the MYSA State Cup or Classic Cup (weekend long tournament in mid-June). Each team will participate in 1 to 2 additional tournaments, at the discretion of the coach and team. Tournaments are typically Thursday through Sunday. Travel for Saturday games and tournaments is expected/required.
Player Registration Fee - $30 non-refundable
Program Fees: Should your child be placed on a team for the fall and/or spring competitive season, there will be additional fees as follows:
Spring Program Fee (Ages 10 to 18) - $270
Spring Team Fee – Will Vary, roughly $75 to $200 per player - dependent upon the tournaments selected, locations of games and number of players on the team. This fee consists of hotel, gas and food costs for the coaches for tournament travel, tournament registration fees, and gas and food costs for regular game days for the coaches. Everyone pays the team fee, regardless if you miss a weekend or not.
Refund Policy: The $30 player registration is non-refundable. The fall program fee is refundable until two weeks prior to the start of the program (roughly September 1st) and the spring program fee is refundable until the end of February. After that time, the program fee(s) are refundable only under special circumstances (i.e. valid medical reason) and will be at the discretion of the board of directors.
Each team is led by an experienced and licensed United States Youth Soccer Coach. Valley Elite F.C. and MYSA require our coaches to pass a background check, pass a concussion awareness test provided by the CDC, obtain a minimum of a Grassroots certification (equivalent to an F Grade License) with US Soccer, and additional licensing as required based on level of team and years of coaching.
Valley Eilte F.C. provides a stipend (when feasible) and the team provides travel reimbursement for their head coach.
Each team is required to have available one to two referees at the level of Assistant Referee. Referees are paid for each game they officiate and Valley Elite F.C. will reimburse initial licensing and uniform expenses.
Each team is required to have a volunteer team manager to provide regular team communication and coordination; communicate time and location of practices and game matches, assist with determining and registering for tournament attendance and collection of team fees. Team Managers are a benefit for the coach and will report to the Club’s Secretary and/or Registrar.
