Can My Child Play “Down”?
If they are registering for a Recreational team, a player may submit a play down request in their application. This should be on the grounds of medical reasons. Playing with classmates is not a sufficient reason. Any play down requests are sent to the playing league’s committee for approval (this is not decided by PSC).
Can a Player Play “UP”?
All players encouraged to play at own age group where possible, but our policy allows players to play up, if they are in the same grade as the cohort of the team.
- How Are Groups Divided?
Can My Child Join PSC If I Don’t Live In Piedmont?
Yes. Piedmont soccer club welcomes players from neighboring cities and currently has about 15% of its players who live outside of the city.
How are the Team’s Flighted?
Within recreational, teams are further grouped according to skill and ability, using colors to identify these levels. Teams are flighted in order to give teams the opportunity to play against players/teams of a similar skill level. Flighting is decided by the Age Group Coordinators, Head Coach and Director of Coaching.
How Can I Register My Child?
Registration for recreational players begins in April and ends June 30th. Players that register after June 30th are put on a wait list and added to teams if space becomes available.
What Programs Does the Club Offer?
The recreational program plays in the Jack London Youth Soccer League and is open to players from U6 – U18. The older age groups are dependent on numbers. If there are enough players (and a coach, then PSC will have rec team(s) for that age group).
