Here are some other frequently asked questions...


HOW DO I KNOW WHEN AND WHERE TO SHOW UP?
Someone from the club will contact you with these details a week or two prior to the first practice.


CAN MY CHILD PLAY UP AN AGE LEVEL?
This is discouraged, however we will consider requests on a case by case basis.


DOES MY CHILD NEED TO TRY OUT?
Our club does not hold exclusionary try outs. In the instances where we have multiple teams at the same age level, we may hold try outs to determine player assignments. However, in such cases, everyone will get the opportunity to play on a team.


DOES MY CHILD NEED PRIOR SOCCER EXPERIENCE?
No. Our club is open to players of all experience levels.


WHAT I DO I AM INTERESTED IN COACHING? DO I NEED EXPERIENCE?
If you are interested in coaching, please contact Coaching Director Brian Farenell (coachfarenell@gmail.com) to express your interest. Please also include any past coaching experience - soccer or otherwise - you may have. If you have no or little experience, you could help assist a more experienced coach.


HOW CAN I VOLUNTEER TO ASSIST THE CLUB IN OTHER WAYS?
We are always looking for volunteers in such areas as...
-Helping run our fall and spring tournaments
-Uniform distribution
-Being on our board of directors

Please contact northernunitedsc@gmail.com if you are interested in helping out.


DO WE GET TO PLAY IN TOURNAMENTS?
All of our spring teams typically play in our Mountain Mayhem tournament in May. Other spring and winter tournaments may be done at the discretion of the coach, in consultation with team families. Tournaments other than Mountain Mayhem usually incur an extra cost.


DO YOU OFFER DISCOUNTS FOR MULTIPLE KIDS IN THE FAMILY?
Not at the present time.


DO YOU OFFER HARDSHIP ASSISTANCE?
Yes, at the discretion of the board. Please contact northernunitedsc@gmail.com if you have such a need.


WHAT DOES MY CHILD NEED TO BRING WITH THEM TO PRACTICE?
To any practice or training session, all players should wear soccer shoes (indoor or outdoor appropriate depending on the circumstances). Sneakers may be permissible at younger levels, at the coach's discretion. They should wear shin guards and soccer or athletic appropriate clothing. They should also bring a ball, if they have one, and something to drink. Anything need for games will be told to you by the coach.
