TEAM FORMATION/PLAYER PLACEMENT/ROSTER RELEASE – COMMUNITY PROGRAM

  • Teams are formed by our communities, who follow our Team Formation Policy + the EMSA rules Section on imports & past level of play.
  • Community Coordinators (or those assigned to form their teams) will do their best to grant friend & Coach requests, however they cannot be guaranteed.
  • Only those players whose fees/deposits/supporting documents have been received by April 15, 2021 will be placed on a team during the initial team formation process.  Players registering or providing the fees/deposits/supporting documents after this time will be added to your community wait-list & placed on a team if space is still available.
  • If you indicated your child will be trying out for a Club/Premier team on the registration form, a community team spot will be held until our Club program, SW Sting FC has released their tryout results.  At that time, your child will either be placed on a community or SW Sting FC roster.  If you cancel the registration after that time, your community may charge you a cancellation fee.  Please review your community refund policy & contact your Soccer Coordinator if you have questions.
  • Rosters must be released to the Head Coach no later than May 5, 2021.  Parents must be contacted by the Head Coach at least one week prior to the season starting.
