Inclement Weather Policy

The Club will determine the severity of the weather and determine if practice will be cancelled or not. This will be posted on the WEBSITE and an email will be sent.

Normally the Club does not make a determination until about 1:00 or 2:00pm the day of, as weather can change dramatically from the morning to the afternoon.

 
Practice Groups

Players are typically grouped by AGE GROUP - (Birth Year)

Requests for placement will not be taken.

Occassionally Coaching Staff will move players around in groups for various reasons - to even out group sizes, skill level, etc.
This is at the Coaching Staff's discretion.

This Program is designed as a bridge from Recreational Soccer to Competitive - the focus is on individual skill development.

This is not a team-based program like recreational soccer.


Typically practice groups will have the same coach(s) weekly.
Game Day coaches may vary depending on the number of teams and the game schedule.

All coaches are Westside Timbers STAFF coaches.
