FALL 2018 U8 (birth year 2011) REGISTRATION INFORMATION
Summit Soccer Club is happy to annouce our new U7 and U8 academy program, which will be led by Summit Soccer Club's Directors of Coaching, Darren Shimwell (Boys) and Dave Stapleton (Girls). The program will be coached by the club's current travel team head coaches who have many years of experience coaching players here in Summit and are familiar faces in the Community. The aim of the U7 and U8 academy is to create a positive, fun environment for our young players to develop skills, core value and a love for the game.
It is our goal to inspire our players to take the next step into the travel soccer program at U9 level with an understanding of the club's operations, playing style and player development philosophy.

Uniforms: Uniforms will be distributed during practice by the parent managers for each team. We will set up an area on the field to distribute uniforms while layers get started in their practices.
As we are trying to instill a sense of club pride, please make sure uniforms are worn for both practice and on game days. In addition, players must wear soccer shin guards and soccer cleats/turf shoes are encouraged.
Chaperones: Chaperones for each practice will be assgined by the team's parent managers. It is very important that they be present at every practice and check in with the coaches in the beginning of each practice. Thier duties will include bringing kids to the restrooms when necessary and to make sure they are all picked up after practices.
The format for Fall 2019 and beyond will be as follows:
* Practices – all players in each division will train at the same time i.e. 2011 Boys (U8) will all train in one time slot (3:30pm). Players will be assinged teams with whom they will train during practices.
* Games – all players in each division will play games at the same time i.e., 2011 girls (U8) will all play games at the same time slot (1-5pm). Players will be playing with their teams.
Field Closures and Cancellations: In case of inclement weather, all decisions regarding cancellations will be made by 1:00pm by the club and will be posted on the website.
