Frequently Asked Questions

When will I hear from my child's coach?

The soccer coaches receive rosters on July 28. You should receive a call from your child's coach by August 7. If you do not hear from your child's coach by this time, please call Donner Center (812)376-2680.

When are the games?
Games are played on Saturday mornings at 8:30 a.m., 10:00 a.m. and 11:30 a.m.  All games are held at Blackwell Park behind Parkside School.

How long is the season?
There are six games beginning on August 15 and ending on September 19.

What about practices?
Teams will be scheduled for 1 or 2 practices per week. The coach determines the day(s) and time(s) and will contact you with this information.

Can my child change teams if he/she cannot regularly make it to practice.
Unfortunately, no. Due to the size of our soccer program we are not able to accomodate everyone.  Instead we require coaches not to cut a child's playing time simply because the child is unable to get to practice.

Are there awards?
Yes, all participants receive an award at the last game of the season.

What about uniforms?
Each player will receive a uniform T-shirt. All players must provide their own shin guards and long socks (required). Cleats are optional and are the player's responsibility.

What if I have a problem?
Go to the coach first. If that does not help, please contact the Division Manager for your child's division.

How do I know if a game or practice is cancelled?
Check our cancellation page for these policies.

What if we have lost our game schedule?
Once we have the game schedules ready we will post them on this website. You will need to know what division your child is in and his/her coach.

If you have any other questions that are not addressed here, feel free to contact your coach, division manager or the Parks and Recreation Department.

Is there anything my child cannot wear?
Yes!  Players cannot have any beads or hard objects in their hair as well as no earrings.  New piercings cannot be covered with tape.
