Please Review the Requirements Our League has to enable your Child to play in our program. Adherence to all documentation and payment requirements for your child's age group is mandatory to be placed on a team.
"Playing Up" (playing in an older age group)
FCAYS CLUB POLICY
Playing Up in Age Group (revised June 18, 2014)
FCAYS players may only register and roster on teams in leagues to either their age group as determined by birth date or, if resulting in playing up one year, in the age group of their school grade. Parents may petition the Director of Coaching to request evaluation and consideration for placement on an older age team. Older team placement will only be considered based upon the player's ability, that it is in best interest of the player's advancement, and that it generates no adverse effect to any other of-age player's opportunity to play at the higher level.
Any player who plays in an age group higher than their actual age group, based on their birth date, is considered to be "playing up." Parents of children who want their child to play up in age group must request a player assessment from the club's Director of Coaching, unless playing up one year to be in the age group of their school grade.
Birth Certificate Requirements A copy of your child's birth certificate is required for all players. If you did not submit one in the past, please upload a copy of the birth certificate into the registration system. It must be a graphics or photo file, no larger than 512 kB. PDF files are not accepted. If your file is larger than 512 kB, the instructions in the document to the left describe how to make it smaller.
Uniforms U6 to U8:each player will receive a team shirt and socks, both of which are included in the registration fees.
U9 players and older teams were required to order NEW uniforms for Fall 2014. If your child did not play fall soccer and did not order the new uniform, you will need to choose the uniform option at check out. The uniform package will include one red and one white Adidas game jersey with matching player number on back, black Adidas shorts and black Adidas socks. This uniform will be used through the spring season of 2016 - 2 playing years / 4 seasons. Please keep that in mind for sizing when ordering.
Player Development Clinics FCAYS will not be directly providing clinics this spring due to program offerings by area providers. FCAYS will provide links to programs provided by Fox Chapel Area High School Varsity Soccer Coaches, Youth Elite Soccer, and others for you to review and assess for value and convenience.
FCAYS' tradition of clinics started when there were no other options provided for our players. FCAYS clinics were designed as a break-even, convenient and affordable training program for our families for spring, fall and winter training. As these new programs evolved, our enrollment dropped making it necessary to reassess our clinics program. It is our hope that these programs will provide the accessiblity, training quality, and affordability we strived for in our program.
Remember, Clinics are for fresh beginners all the way to the advanced travel team player.
Success in everything comes from quality instruction and repetition. You can improve your child's game and level of enjoyment of soccer through additional "touches" and professional training.
