The EMW soccer season runs in the fall beginning the first or second Saturday in September (depending on Labor day) and runs for 8 consecutive weeks. All divisions are co-ed. Children are placed in divisions based on their age as of December 1 of the current year not their grade. EMW Soccer does not allow children to "play up" or "play down" a division. Children must remain in the division that corresponds to their birthdate. All new players must show proof of birthdate when registering. If registering on-line, their registration is not complete until a copy of the child's birth certificate is mailed, emailed or faxed to the registrar.
It's all about fun! As a recreational league beginning in the late 1970's, EMW soccer continues to teach children the fundamentals of the game. We want all players to learn the game and to have fun at the same time. While teams win and lose each week, we do not keep score and we do not give out trophies. The children shake hands after every game and learn the importance of good sportsmanship. We encourage parent involvement in the team and in the EMW Soccer organization.
Soccer is an all-weather sport. If the EMW fields are playable, games will be played in the rain (or snow!) Games will not be played if there is lightning or a threatening storm nearby. Assume that scheduled games or practices will be held unless you are notified by the coach or coach's representative. Please avoid calling the coach regarding game cancellations. Decisions to cancel the games will be made by the Field Coordinator or Board Member in charge that day. This year EMW soccer will have the ability to automatically notify all players, parents, and coaches by email if games will be cancelled. If games are cancelled for any circumstance, they arenot rescheduled.
