Frequently Asked Soccer Questions (For Fall 2019)

When does the Fall 2019 Season run?

For the Fall 2019 season, games can begin as early as Sept. 7 and can run thru Oct. 27.  Practices can begin up to three week before games. 

When are games?

All divisions U7 and older play primarily on weekends but may have an occasional mid-week game.  Saturday and  Sunday games can be from 9:00am to 7:00pm. Mid-week games generally begin at 6:00pm or 6:30pm, unless requested differently by the coach.   

The U5 & U6 soccer program can be held on Saturdays or Sundays but games can be moved to a weeknight depending on any rain-outs or coach scheduling conflicts.

When do they practice?

For U7 & older divisions, 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.  

For the  U5 & U6 programs, the coaches have the option of practicing before their scheduled game or practicing during a  weeknights.

When will I be notified that I my child has been placed on a team?

The coaches will call the players approximately two to three weeks before the game season starts.  Coaches receive their rosters at the general coaches meeting, held three to four weeks prior to the game season starting.  

How are teams determined?

Fall Seasons- All returning coaches are allowed to request players from their previous seasons team as long as the parents also request to be back on that team.  Once those players are chosen, an Age Group Coordinator places the remaining players on to existing teams or forms new teams. Rosters are sent to ALL the coach in the division for approval prior to the General Coaches Meeting.  Due to State Association mandated roster maximums, requests can be made but not guaranteed.

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 open roster positions on existing teams or will form new teams.

For the possible exceptions to the rules on team placement, please read the Plymouth Rec. Youth Soccer Policies

I live in Plymouth Township or have a Plymouth mailing address, 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 the City of Plymouth Recreation Department through their property taxes, therefore, they receive a discounted rate.
