A: We only consider single reciprocal teammate requests. These requests are not guaranteed. For example: Juan Smith has to enter teammate request Michaela Park during registration. Michaela Park has to enter teammate request Juan Smith during registration.
Q: Will there be practices?
A: There are no additional days for practice.
Q: My child did not get on the team that their other friends are on. Can they switch teams?
A: We do our best to honor single reciprocal teammate requests. We also try to balance team rosters based on grade, gender, and whether players also play travel. We do what we can to accommodate requests before teams are assigned, but after rosters are published, we cannot make further changes. We have found this is a wonderful opportunity for children to make new friends and practice independence. We hope that you will encourage your child to participate in this new environment.
Q: What other equipment does my child need to play?
A: You will need to provide shin guards and all players must wear sneakers. (no cleats.) The uniform that we provide will include a jersey, shorts, and socks.
Q: My sons/daughter's team got destroyed last week 12-0. Can I run up to the opposing coach and yell at him at the end of the game?
A: Please do not do this. We understand your frustration. Coaches are all informed of the rules regarding the running up of scores before the season starts (see Futsal Rules regarding 5-goal advantage under Futsal tab on website.) Express your concerns with your coach only, and they can contact the commissioner.
Q: I have a concern I need immediately addressed during the game. What do I do?
A: We have someone supervising each gym all day on Saturday. They will typically be in the hallway outside gym. Please express your concern to them and they will engage the commissioner or coordinator directly.
Q: We have changed our mind about participating because... my child has no one they know on the team, or we have decided to go skiing, or the schedule no longer works for us, may we have a refund?
