Welcome to Seminole Youth Soccer!
Week 3 – Review
What a great day for soccer! Thank you to everyone that came out to enjoy a beautiful day with all the kids. We had some really great games played all day long. This was a very good example of how nice everything is when sportsmanship prevails. The only real problem we had was with people bringing dogs to the park. Seminole County has asked that we remind you that dogs or pets of any kind are not allowed inside the park. We are dog owners ourselves, and we understand the love of you pet. However, we are not allowed to bring them to the park.
Week 4 – Preview
Please be sure to check the schedule below for your game this week. Also, we have received notice again by the county that they have had a problem with car break-ins over the last few weeks. Please be sure to lock your car and to not leave anything of value where it can be seen. Have a great week, and we hope to see you all next week.
Here are a few things you should remember every Saturday:
- All games must start on time, so be sure to come early to your game.
- We recommend your child wears bug spray for early and late games.
- We recommend your child wears sunscreen for mid-day games.
- Parking can be a problem, so arrive early. There is plenty of parking in the back of the park.
- Please clean up after your team when your match is over
- Please use only positive comments towards the coaches (referees) and players.
- Absolutely no standing or coaching from behind the goals.
Heading for Players 12 years old and Younger
The question about heading in the younger age groups was brought to our attention by some concerned parents. The policy of Seminole Youth Soccer is to abide by the U.S. Soccer rules/recommendations on youth heading as stated here. Children that are 10 years old and younger will not do heading drills while training (practice) or during games. Children that are 11 to 13 years old may do limited heading drills (no more than 30 minutes a week), and they are limited to 15 to 20 headers in a week. There are no restrictions for ages 14 years and older. If a player 10 years or younger heads a ball during the game, there will be no penalty at that time. When play stops, the coach should remind the player that heading is not encouraged at his/her age. If the player continues to head the ball, he/she should be removed from the game and not return until he/she understands the rule. The coaches should not practice heading and he/she will discourage the players at this age from using their heads. Hopefully, this will clear up any future instances of under age players heading the ball. Thank you!
