Practices

There is no practice during the week for the U4 division. The U6-High School divisions will be notified via their coach when they are allowed to begin practicing.  PASA has contracted more than 10 practice locations through the Pickerington area.  Practices are based on the availability of your child's volunteer coach and will be held once per week


Team Assignments and Volunteers:

Typically, teams stay the same from fall to spring.  The teams can only be kept the same if everyone from the fall returns, your coach returns, there are no requests to be removed from a team. Players who are "new" in spring will be added to teams where needed. Teams are re-sorted every fall season. We reserve the right to move players around if necessary.

NO CARPOOL OR COACH REQUESTS WILL BE HONORED. 

In the spring season, Volunteers (Head Coaches, Assistants and Team Managers) will be reassigned to the same team from the previous season unless we hear from you otherwise. New volunteers are always welcome; please check the appropriate boxes during the registration process to sign up to be a Head Coach, Assistant Coach or Team Manager.

In the fall season, Volunteers (Head Coaches, Assistants and Team Managers) will be assigned to teams from the pool of available volunteers. Please remember to check the appropriate boxes during the registration process to sign up to be a Head Coach, Assistant or Team Manager. If there's someone you'd like to work with, please email us to let us know.

What to bring to practices and games:

All players will need to bring a soccer ball and water/drink to practice. Players must wear shin guards. Please note size of ball according to player’s age group:

· U4, U6, U8 – size 3

· U10 and U12 – size 4

· Junior and High School – size 5

Cleats are recommended. No baseball/football cleats, only soccer cleats are allowed. 

Jewelry policy:

Please note: FIFA Law 4 states:

Law 4: The Players' Equipment. A player must not use equipment or wear anything that is dangerous. All jewelry items (necklaces, rings, bracelets, earrings, leather bands, rubber bands, etc.) are forbidden and must be removed. Using tape to cover jewelry is not permitted.

No earrings, “piercings”, watches, rings, necklaces, bracelets, wristbands, or hard casts may be worn during gameplay or practice. Hair bands, if used, must be elastic. Other articles that the referee may consider to endanger either the wearer or other players must also be removed. Medical bracelets and medical necklaces are not considered “jewelry” but must be taped to the body to the satisfaction of the referee. Failure to obey the referee will automatically disqualify the player from participation until the referee determines the hazard has been resolved.

PASA does not offer refunds based on loss of practice or game time for jewelry violations. If you are planning on a new piercing that requires the stud to stay in place, please consider this when registering for a soccer session as it will not be allowed in any situation.

Casts:

Players with casts can participate if cleared by their doctor.  The cast must be wrapped in bubble wrap and cleared by the referee prior to the start of the game

Hair:

No beads or other hard, hair accessories.  No hats.  Stocking caps with no ball on top is allowed especially in cold weather games.  Hair accessories outside of scrunchies or soft material must be removed to play

Refunds:

You may request a refund if your child is injured or decides s/he doesn't want to play. ALL refund requests will include a $20 processing fee ($25 if more than one child in the same family is requesting a refund), we will deduct this fee from your refund.  In order to receive a refund, your child cannot have participated in any games. If the request is necessary due to an injury, after the child has already participated in one or more games, we will review the request and let you know if you will receive a partial refund.  There will not be refunds after the first game is played.  There are no refunds due to a lack of interest on the part of the player.
For the quickest response to your refund request, please email treasurer@pasasoccer.org
