2021 Spring Season Information

MUDSOCK YOUTH SOCCER

Join Mudsock Youth Soccer for our 2021 Spring soccer season. We offer a full recreational soccer program for players 4 years old through 8th grade who reside in the Hamilton Southeastern School District. All recreational soccer participants will be registered through Mudsock Youth Athletics online at myathletics.com

Registration Fees
Open Spring registration will be held the month of January 2021. Registration will be accepted on-line at www.myathletics.com . Spring fees will be as follows:
• $85 for grades Pre- K through 2nd (includes uniform costs)
• $105 for grades 3rd-6th (includes uniform costs)
• $120 for grades 7-8th (includes uniform costs)

There will be a multi-player discount available for families registering three or more children. A $10 late fee will be added to each registration after January 31, 2021.

7th and 8th Grade – Rec Plus
Teams will play other local teams outside of Mudsock Youth Soccer in addition to our own teams. Additionally, teams will have 2 practices per week. Player information will be shared with Indiana Soccer in order to register teams. Teams will play a minimum of 8 season games, perhaps more depending on scheduling. A season ending tournament will be held with member teams within the league. (Location TBD).

Special Requests
Teams are formed by Mudsock Youth Soccer commissioners. In order to be fair and make sure teams are balanced, requests will not be guaranteed and cannot be accommodated after teams are formed. Requests may include sibling information, physical/social/emotional needs, sizing information, etc. Requests will not be accepted after registration has closed. Specific day requests for practices will not be an option. One exception, a head coach may choose one assistant coach and one player to be included on his team. If your child participates in more than one activity or sport, Mudsock Youth Soccer cannot guarantee the absence of scheduling conflicts as each league operates independently. Families will be informed via Sports Connect of assigned practice day after registration has closed and teams are formed. Assigned field locations are made by the league based on several factors. It is not possible to honor a specific practice location request.

Season Highlights
The season will run for 8 weeks and consist of a weeknight practice and Saturday game for the duration. (Rec Plus players will have (2) weeknight practices). Participants will receive team information at least two weeks prior to their first practice. Most practices will be held on week nights, while the majority of games will be held on Saturday. Every attempt will be made to reschedule any canceled games due to weather or field conditions for the following Sunday afternoon (8 days post).

Spring 2021
Season: April 12th – May 22th
Practices: 8 sessions weather permitting
Games: 6 games weather permitting (includes one scheduled Sunday game)

Coach Information
All of our teams are coached by volunteers, most are parents of players. Please keep this in mind throughout the season. Individuals who are interested in coaching should mark their intent to coach on their child's registration form or contact the Mudsock Youth Athletics office. All coaches are required to submit a background check, complete online concussion training, and attend a pre-season coach's meeting (TBD). Please also list on the registration form if you are interested in being a league sponsor, volunteering on the soccer board or as a commissioner. Head Coaches and Assistant Coaches receive a complimentary coach shirt, team equipment, access to practice plans and league support. We also offer reimbursement on certain coaching licensure programs offered through US Soccer. If interested, please contact our Director of Coaching for more information.
