SPRING 2019 SOCCER
The spring season will be twice-a-week outdoor training sessions, approximately eight games in the Vermont Soccer League, possible friendlies and team outings, and optional tournaments. The spring season will start on Monday April 15th and will run through the end of June.

The spring training session schedule will not be set until about a month before the season starts. We'll find the best training session schedule that works for the players/parents on each team.

There are quite a few spring tournaments, including a pre-season tournament in Queensbury NY and an end-of-the-season tournament in Essex Junction VT. All of the spring tournaments are optional, and all but one will cost extra to the players who participate in them. The Target United Cup (in the middle of the season, in Essex Junction) is included in the registration fee for U8, U10, and U12 teams.

Here are four of the definite spring tournaments.
Northern United Mountain Mayhem Tournament: Queensbury NY (U8-U12) and Fort Ann NY (U14).
Amherst Memorial Day Classic: Amherst NH (U8-U14).
Target United Cup: Essex Junction VT (U8-U12).
Essex United Soccer Tournament: Essex Junction VT (U8-U14).

All of our training, and half of our Vermont Soccer League games, will be at Hard'ack, on the Gratton fields which are in the far back section of Hard'ack. We just (November 2018) had this area professionally flattened. If Hard'ack is too muddy for use when we start in mid April then we'll have temporary use of Collins Perley.

​Players will need both the HOME (maroon) and AWAY (yellow) uniform kits: Jerseys, Shorts, and Socks.

IF YOU PLAYED IN THE FALL 2018 SEASON then you get a $25 discount which is not reflected in the costs below. If you register early for the spring then your spring registration fee is $85 (instead of $110), otherwise it's $110 (instead of $135).

The early registration deadline is Saturday December 15th. On December 16th, the registration fee will increase from $110 to $135.

The last day to register is Monday January 28th.

The word “developmental” gets tossed around a lot. That word is clearly important for youth players and their soccer engagements. But what does it actually mean, in practical terms? The US Youth Soccer Player Development Model explains this in detail. The associated coaching education (for U12 and younger) is the National Youth Coaching Course (formerly known as the National Youth License course). Development fuels competition.
