Hello Parents! I hope that everyone has enjoyed a great summer and are looking forward to the upcoming season! Just wanted to touch base with you all to let you know our season dates and other info.
Registration and Uniforms
Registration is currently open and you can register online at https://sc-congareerapidfc.
affinitysoccer.com/reg/Public/ registration/login.aspx? domain=sc-congareerapidfc. affinitysoccer.com&language= english&sessionguid=
Tip: Hover your mouse over the 'Help' icons to get useful information!
We will also have one of our staff members, Janet Mitchell, be at the fields on Monday and Thursday nights from 5:30 to 7:30 to help take your registrations. If you're having any trouble registering, please reach out to her at email@example.com to register in person or for online problems, please reach out to our club registrar, Lisa Simmons, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please make sure that you choose a uniform size when registering. I order uniforms two weeks before we start having games and I only order what we need plus 5 extras. Obviously, I don't know your child's size and I don't want to be responsible for ordering your child a Youth Small, when they need a YXL.
We will start the season with a parent meeting on Thursday September 9th. Age specific times will be released once we get closer to the date. I want to have a better idea as to how many kids we have registered before I release those times. At this meeting, we will introduce our coaches from Soda City FC, sign up volunteers, go over field layouts, etc. Please make every effort to make this meeting.
Monday Thursday 2-Aug 5-Aug 9-Aug 12-Aug 16-Aug 19-Aug 23-Aug 26-Aug 30-Aug 2-Sep 6-Sep Labor Day 9-Sep Parent Meeting 13-Sep First Practice 16-Sep Practice 20-Sep Practice 23-Sep Match 1 27-Sep Practice 30-Sep Match 2 4-Oct Practice 7-Oct Match 3 11-Oct Practice 14-Oct Match 4 18-Oct Practice 21-Oct Match 5 25-Oct Practice 28-Oct Goals and Ghouls 1-Nov Practice 4-Nov Match 6
At this time, we're trying to schedule practices to be all at the same time, which will be from 6 to 7. This will all be dependent on the number of players that we have sign up and how many volunteers we have. We will be having coaches from Soda City FC back again to help us and of course, we're still looking for volunteers to help out as well. Volunteers are only there to help the Soda City FC and we do not require you to have any prior experience.
U7 - U12 = $85
U6 = $50
U4 = $50
Volunteer opt out fee = $25
Every player will be charged $25 for the volunteer opt out fee. At the end of the season, anyone who signs up to volunteer and helps throughout the season, will be reimbursed this fee.
If you have any questions about your child's age group, please see the chart below.
Age Matrix U4 2018 U5 (U6) 2017 U6 2016 U7 (U8) 2015 U8 2014 U9 (U10) 2013 U10 2012 U11 (U12) 2011 U12 2010
If you are a U4 and below parent, our registration system does not recognize this particular age group, so you can just contact me and I'll put you in my database.
We're fortunate to have one of the best complexes in the Midlands to host all of our games and practices. If you're unfamiliar with its location, you can plug in the address as 760 Old Barnwell Road in West Columbia.
That should be about it for right now. Thanks for reading through this long email, hopefully it answers any questions that you might have. If not, please feel free to email me at email@example.com
