2022 PCA Youth Soccer Registration

SOCCER REGISTRATION for Parkdale is now open. 

 

Thank you to all our participants!

Please contact Angus Smith, Director of Soccer, if you have any questions: soccer@parkdaleyyc.com

The tentative Schedule for the 2022 season is April 26th to June 18th.

* The registration fee for each player in U8 & older includes a new soccer jersey, shorts and socks which will be theirs to keep after the season!  *

* Teams for older kids dependent on enough participants. Days / times TBC, dependent on ICHL scheduling.

 

ICHL is "Inter-Community House League"

What does U… mean?

This is one of the most commonly asked questions. Children are grouped by age as U6, U8, etc. The “U” stands for “Under”. The number is their age on December 31 of this past New Years Eve. Your child will be assigned to the appropriate age category based on their age on December 31st, 2021.

For example, if your child is 5 years old on December 31st, 2021, your child is considered U6 (even if their birthday is Jan 1st and they will be 6 years old before or during the soccer season).

This means that players are allocated to player groups strictly based on this designation, and we cannot allow players to join team outside of their eligible age group. *Policies do not allow us to have players participate outside their eligible age group, regardless of reasons, so please do NOT register your child in a group that does not correlate their year born. Registrations done this way will NOT be processed*

Here are the categories that relate to each year of birth (ie: if your child’s year of birth is 2013 or 2014, your child is considered U8).

U16 & U18 Teams

Based on previous registration numbers, we will not be forming U16 or U18 teams this year.

Important Note For Forming U10, U13 and U15 Teams

 

The teams we are able to form each year are entirely based on the total number of players that are registered.  It is very important that you register your child(ren) as soon as possible so that we can monitor the demand for each age category, as well as whether it is possible for us to form mixed teams, or boys / girls teams.  If your child has friends in the community, we strongly encourage you to invite them to play and help ensure we have enough kids to form teams at every level.

Equipment

Shin pads are required for all players (all age groups) to participate in games and practices.

 

Soccer cleats are optional at U6 and U8, and highly recommended for U10 and above.
