Frequently Asked Soccer Questions (For Spring 2017)

When does the Spring 2017 season begin and end?

The Spring 2017 game schedule can begin as early as April 15 and can end as late as June 11 ( WSSL) or June 18 ( House & Instructional).
 
Practices can begin a week or two before games depending on the age division and the weather.

When are games?
Games are played primarily on weekends but may have an occasional mid-week game. Saturday games can be from 8:00 am to 7:00 pm. Sunday games can be from 10:00 am to 7:00 pm. Mid-week games generally begin at 6:00pm or 6:30pm, unless requested differently by the coach.

The Under 5 and Under 6 instructional program generally play on Saturdays, but may play / practice some midweek nights or Sundays if requested by the coach.

When do they practice?
Under 7 and older practice days and fields are determined by the “practice field lottery” held at the general coaches meeting. The time is determined by the coaches’ availability.

Under 5 and Under 6, the coaches have the option of practicing before the games or during the week.

When will I be notified that my child has been placed on a team?
The coaches will call the players approximately three weeks before the game season starts. The coaches receive their rosters at the general coaches meeting, held three weeks prior to when the game season starts.

How are teams determined?
Fall seasons - With the exception of the Under 5 and Under 6 program, all returning coaches are allowed to request players from their previous season if also requested to do so by the player’s parent. Once those players are chosen, an age group coordinator distributes the remaining players and rosters are viewed and approved by all the coaches in the division. Due to roster maximums enforced by the state association and other factors, not all requests for placement can be honored.

Spring seasons - The spring season is a continuation of the fall. Teams from the Fall remain together unless there are specific requests. New players for the Spring season will fill any holes existing on a roster or will form new teams.

I live in Plymouth Township or have a Plymouth mailing address but live in Northville, why do I pay more?
At this time, because no Plymouth Township taxes are put toward recreation services, Plymouth Township residents and persons that live in Northville with Plymouth mailing addresses do not qualify for the lower City of Plymouth resident rates. City of Plymouth residents contribute to the support of the City of Plymouth Recreation Department through their property taxes, therefore, they receive a discounted rate.


TOPPS Soccer  - Not a City of Plymouth Program.

Children ages 5 to 19 with disabilities are encouraged to participate in the TOPPS soccer program. The program is open to children with autism, Cerebral palsy, Down’s Syndrome, and other disabilities. Children who use walkers or wheelchairs are welcome. The cost is $25 for the season. Children will need shin guards and a water bottle. Children with Down Syndrome will need a doctor’s note. For program and registration information, contact Mary Poisson at (313) 942-5609.
