FALLS CITY SOCCER CLUB – FAQ SHEET FOR 2021-22
ABILITY LEVELS: Generally, teams are created on the following competitive scale:
Gold = premier level; Green = premier/classic level; White/Black = classic level.
SEASONS: Acceptance of a spot on a team is a commitment for two seasons: Fall season August 1– October 31; Spring Season March 1 – June 1, 2022. We offer Winter Indoor Training Program from late December through February, as well as individual training programs and leagues at CITY HALL year round.
TRAINING: For U9-U12: 2x per week; U13-U19 Classic level: 2 x per week; U13-U19 Premier level: 3x per week. Practices are 90 minutes in length, typically on a Mon/Weds or Tues/Thurs schedule. You will be notified of specific schedules around July 15. Most teams will train at either Humana Grand Allee (game fields) or Miles Park, both within The Parklands.
TOURNAMENTS: U9 & U10 teams will apply to 3 tournaments total (2 in the fall, 1 in the spring). Most U11-U18 teams will apply for two tournaments per season, one local and one which may require overnight stay (within 2½ hour drive from Louisville). The cost for additional tournaments will be covered by the team. For the fall, we will once again apply the entire club to play in a tournament in late Sept./early Oct., then we host the Falls City Festi-ville tournament in late October.
