How often are practices?

What additional equipment is needed for soccer?
  • Children must bring their own shin guards to practices and games.  

Who are the coaches?

My child wants to play with a friend.  Is that possible?
  • Yes, you can make a friend request.  Friend requests are only honored as long as the friend is in the same age-appropriate division as your child and as long as there is space in that division.

What does my registration fee cover?
  • Registration fees cover the cost of the practice fields per week, the cost of the weekly game facility rentals, player and facility insurance, custom uniforms, field equipment, facility staff, and various operating expenses.

What kind of uniform does my child receive? Is it extra or included in the cost?
  • Children receive an Academy Tshirt.  It is included in the cost of the registration and is not extra.  

Can I exchange my uniform?

Are refunds or credits allowed?
  • Neither refunds nor credits are given.

Do you offer payment plans?
  • Yes, we do.  Please contact the office for specifics. 

What is league age?  
  • League age is the age you are on August 1, 2012 for the 2012-2013 sports year.  That age is "frozen" for the entire year and that is the age that you are for that particular sports year.  

Why does IYS use league age?
  • IYS uses league age in order to allow players to play with their same team for an entire year thereby reinforcing the concepts of team bonding and team cohesion.

My child is 8 on August 1, 2012 but then turns 9 three weeks later. How do you determine what his league age is?
  • Because he was 8 on 8/1/12, his league age is 8.  Although he turned a year older a few weeks later, his age on 8/1/12 is the determining factor for placement for the 2012-2013 sports year. 

If a child has a birthday after the cut-off date and turns a year older, does he have to move up a division?
  • No.  All that matters is the age he was on the cut-off date (8/1/12).  Children do not move up divisions due to birthdays during the year or else we would be reorganizing teams each week.  It is similar to the school year cut-off - if a child turns a year older, they do not automatically move up to the next grade the next day.
