What size soccer ball should I buy?
Size 3 (ages 8 and under)
Size 4 (ages 9-12)
Size 5 (ages 13 and up)
If I do not have the correct size ball, is that a problem?
No it is not a problem. No need to go buy another one.
My daughter is only 6 and this is her first time, should we go purchase soccer shoes?
Soccer cleats will get good grip on a regular or thick grass thus allowing your child to run quicker and maintain balance on the field while dribbling or kicking the soccer ball. Since soccer shoes are not the most comfortable, it's important for you and your child to start soccer at the right speed. Where if you truly enjoy the game, you can invest $30-$60 and attain a decent to quality pair of shoes for your child.
My two sons are in two different age groups and not back to back. Can I move my younger son to another age group to make it easier on me and the timing?
Anyone can make request to see if their child can participate in another age group/time slot. Your child must be capable of playing at the different age bracket. If the staff feels the move is delaying the growth of your child or others we will request your child be placed in his/her according age bracket and if this request does not allow you to participate a full refund can be provided.
What if the weather is really bad? How will we get notified?
If the weather has turned upside down, this is the process to follow.
1) Heavy Lightning and Stormy Weather 30 minutes Before Kick Off (cancelled - notifications will be distributed)
2) Heavy Rain and Stormy Weather 30 minutes Before Kick Off (cancelled - notifications will be distributed)
3) Scattered Showers/Scattered Lightning 30 minutes Before Kick Off (not cancelled - please show up to the school to wait further instructions)
4) Light Showers/Light Lightning 30 minutes Before Kick Off (not cancelled - please show up to the school to wait further instructions)
A status update will be provided prior to each date.
When should I arrive to the school and get my child ready to play?
We will begin prompt at 9:30am, 10:30am, 11:30am. I would advise preparing all your gear the day before, and arrive to the parking lot 10-15 minutes before you start time. This will allow you to comfortably get to the field, finish putting on your gear and get organized before you begin.
Does Troy Soccer Club have any other programs that I can register for?
Troy Soccer Club has been established since 1974 and has been providing soccer programs in different areas for multiple people to attain. Club camps, weekly club training, individual travel teams, goalie training and more are all tools that you can participate it, some may require an evaluation from the coach or director of the program/team.
