First Kicks – Fall/Winter 2019 is Now Open for Registration

Registration for the Fall/Winter 2019 First Kicks Program will be on a first come, first served basis and this will allow all parents to have equal opportunity to sign up for the time/day that they would prefer. You will be signing up for a specific weekday and time as well as a specific Saturday time. Each specific group will have a limited number of spots – U4 and U5 has a maximum of 25 players while U6-U8 have a maximum of 12 players. When the spots have been filled, the registration will automatically close and that group will be considered full. If we must change your group’s timeslot, we will do our best to add players to a group with a similar time. If we are unable to offer you an acceptable alternative, we will provide a full refund minus a $10 administration fee.

Waitlist spots will open when registration is full. The waitlist will only be available for those players who have not received a spot in a regular registration package. Waitlist players will not have a choice of day or time. We will not be able to confirm a waitlist team until we register enough players and have at least two volunteer coaches. If you are on the waitlist, please expect confirmation of your situation a week before the program opens.

DURATION

This program will run from September 7 to March 2, 2019. U4 and U5's have sessions once a week on Saturdays, U6-U8's have sessions twice a week, Tuesdays OR Thursdays (depending which group you sign up for) and Saturdays. Each session is one hour long.

PLAYER Registration: Open NOW

Just like last Spring, we will be monitoring players who register during the coaches’ window (the 24that noon). If you register during the coaches window and you do not have a family member registered to coach, we will REMOVE you from the system and charge you the $25 admin fee. This window is meant to ensure coaches (and their kids) are able to be on the same team, and pick the time slot that best works for them. Please do not try to cheat the system, and respect that this window is to ensure all our teams have coaches. If you want to make sure you get the team you want, volunteer and register to coach in Stack Sports (click the “register” button and follow the prompts).
