Note:
Note 1: For Fall 2019 season, age is based on the child’s age on County Date October 15th, 2019.
Note 2: This Fall we will have assessments for age groups 7/8 and above. Assessments will be held on March 9th.  A season ending tournament will conclude the season for these age groups with trophies awarded to the top two finishers in the tournament for each age group. 
Note 3: 3/4 and 5/6 Age groups will focus on teaching the game of soccer, fundamentals and emphasizing FUN! Participation awards will be provided to each player at the conclusion of the season. 
Note 4: The County reserves the right to require any of the age groups to play a Countywide schedule. There are very limited opportunities in the Spring to play Countywide and thus we're striving to field enough teams in each age group for an in-house league. That will be determine by registration numbers and decisions by the County which we are unable to control.

Putting Teams Together:

This season we will be doing a draft (tentatively scheduled for March 10th) based on assessments that are scheduled for March 9th (schedule to be sent out as soon as registration closes) to establish teams (with the exception of the 3/4 and 5/6 age groups).  This in person assessment will consist of the following: Passing, shooting, kick for distance, speed, and agility.  All Players will be drafted based on the assessments. If a player doesn't show for assessments they will be placed in a hat and selected. Coaches will be allowed to select a predetermined number of players in advance of the draft for players that have requested that coach.  We will strive to honor practice night restrictions but no other special requests will be accommodated due to the draft format with the exception of the 3/4 and 5/6 age groups. In the 3/4 and 5/6 age group will be try to accommodate coaching requests. Please understand with the number of special requests it has become extremely difficult to accommodate and as such requests are not guaranteed to be honored.  Only considerations are 2 nights a week a player can not practice. 

Practices: 

- Before games begin:  1 hour during week and 1 hour on Saturday
- After games begin:  1 hour during week

Coaching: 

If you intend to coach or assist, please email [email protected] with “Odell Fall Soccer 2019” in the subject line. Please provide your name, phone number, email address, age group(s), whether you want to be a head coach or assist, and who you are coaching with. Please note that we cannot guarantee that you will be able to coach a team however history has told us that every year we don’t have enough coaches, so please volunteer to help coach. After registration is complete, the Soccer Coordinators will determine how many teams are needed at each age group. Coaches will be required to submit a background check to the County to be allowed to coach.  For those returning coaches, a coaching retention fee will not be paid during the Spring season. Instead, those funds will be reinvested into Odell Rec and the soccer program. 

Fundraising: 

Odell Rec will hold several fundraisers though out the season.  Please try to participate in these, as these are ways for us to continue to offer lower registration fees.
