Meet and Greet Day January 26th 9 AM- This day will consist of a short meeting with all participants when you will meet your coach, get your practice and game schedule, get your team shirt, and all other information for a smooth Mini Vikes season.
**Picture Day is Saturday February 9th. Plan to come ½ hour before your game for photos**
1stgame is February 2ndand runs for 4 Saturdays. The lastgame is February 23rd.
Games start every hour. Generally, each game will have two, 20-minute halves with a 5-minute water break at half time. If the game is running late or the kids are tired, we will stop the second half early. There are 6-8 players on each side, including one goalie. Coaches may substitute at will. Parents are encouraged to be on the floor if their child needs special encouragement or assistance.
The Game Rules:
- No score is kept
- Good sportsmanship is taught and lead by example of coaches and parents
- Teach very basics of soccer – no hands (unless you are the goalie)-kick the ball into the goal.
- Try not to hurt each other
Being a referee-This involves encouraging the kids, keeping them safe and helping when they need it. We need 1 parent from each team for each game. This gives you as a parent the opportunity to be directly involved and the children love to have you out there. Your coach will be asking you to referee.
Final Game (February 23rd)-There will be a short ceremony following each shortened game. Each child will be recognized with a certificate.
Practices –Practices will be held on Tuesday or Thursday nights. They last 30 minutes and are held between 6-8pm. There is only one practice a week and only for 2 weeks (the week before and after the first game). You will find out your practice day at the meet and greet on January 26th.
Snacks –Team parents organize who will bring snacks and drinks for after the game.
