Frequently Asked Questions- Click on the Subject Title to reveal category questions

What do I need?

What equipment do I need?


Players must have shin guards and cleats for all practices and events. A ball is recommended. Cleats: You may choose to use turf shoes or cleats, but no cleat on the front toe of the shoe. The front cleat is for baseball and football, but not soccer as it can injur others when kicking. Shin guards: Check that the guard fits around the shin and that the straps fit comfortably. Socks must cover the entire shin guard. Ball: 8U uses a size 3 ball, 10U uses a size 4 ball, 12U and older use a size 5 ball.

How is this season different?


-There will be no jerseys this season. -Each player will be issued a reversible pinnie and it will be collected on the last day. -It is highly recommended that you bring your own ball so there are less opportunities for sharing equipment and contact. -There will be no referees. -There will be a 6 foot distance rule at the park. You may only hold the ball for a "1-one thousand...2-one thousand....etc" out-loud count by the defender. The count is different for age groups. -Spectators must wear a mask at all times in the park. -Only household members may spectate at the park.




Can I get a refund?


Refunds will be provided in COVID related situations. If a player on the team tests positive, the team will be contacted. If it is determined that the team needs to quarantine from the park for some reason, the remainder of the season will be refunded, less the initial transaction fee and proportionally to how many days remain in the season. If, for some reason, the season cannot happen, you will be refunded, less the initial transaction fee and proportionally to how many days remain in the season. No other refunds will be issued for any reason. No rollovers to future seasons will be conducted.




My child has decided not to play this season, can you just hold the registration fee until next season?


No, there are no rollovers.





Games and Practices

Is there Admission cost for watching Modified Games?


Yes, your registration does not include the cost to watch games. The nonprofit California Soccer Park requires you park admission fees in order to maintain the park, pay for business expenses like utilities, rent, field maintenance, COVID supplies, as well as safety, cleaning and organizational staff. *Note, at this time, only household members are allowed to enter the park for Modified Games. This is a State Rule. Park admission for games is $4. You may also purchase a non-refundable season pass or year pass in the Membership section of the website. www.californiasoccerpark.com/membership




Who is my coach?


Coaches will be in contact within one week of the first practice.




What day are practices?


Practices fall on either a M+W or a T+Th. There are time slots of 5-6, 6-7 and 7-8/7-8:30. We get the younger players in the earlier slots. There is no way to know what your practice schedule is until the coach has been assigned. The benefit of coaching is to be able to choose your time and day slot, so once your player has been assigned to a coach, they will contact you and let you know the time and day. This is a 9 week season. Practices will be on weeks 1, 2, 4, 5, 7, & 8, leaving weeks 3, 6 and 9 for Modified Games.




What are Modified Games and when are they?


Modified games will be held this spring until regular soccer can be played by County and State rules. This is how it works: -Soccer Teams are established in rosters of roughly 18-24. -Teams are broken into half-sized groups or smaller, depending on the age, 11 for 12U and up, 12 for 10U, and 6 for 8U. -Half-teams will practice for 2 weeks -Week 3, the team will unite with a different group, creating a new team for the week, where they will play Modified Games with each other. -Games will be played 7v7 for 19U and 14U, 9v9 for 12U, 5v5 for 10U, and 4v4 for 8U. -There are no referees at these Modified Games. -Players will maintain 6' distance during the Modified Games. (See rules for details). -On week 4 and 5, the County rules require that the teams split up into half-sized teams agian to practice (essentially a 2 week "park quarantine") before they can play Modified Games against another half team on week 6. The same goes for weeks 7, 8 and Modified Games on week 9. Week 3, 6 and 9 will hold games on the weeknights, on Friday nights, and on Saturdays. *Note: Games during the week may not be at the same time or on the same day as your practice weeks.




How are Teams formed?


Teams are formed as evenly as possible, taking into account the player’s requests, transportation requirements, age, etc. We can not guarantee parent requests for player placement, however, requests can be made during online registration. *Note: it is not fun for anyone when a team wins 50 to zero. For that reason, we do not allow full teams to stay as one from year to year in a recreational league. There are competitive leagues if you want to play with the same team each year. Please find information at www.northstatesocccer.com for that. Players will learn to play with new players each season, meet new friends and we will work to keep the teams fair.




Can I request to have my kids play on the same team?


Assuming that they are in the same age group, then yes. Please make sure that you mark the registration form that you wish this to occur. This is especially important for siblings that do not share a last name. However, requests are not guaranteed.




Can I request to have my kid placed with a certain player or with a certain coach?


Possibly. We attempt to honor requests to have players play with their friends or for certain coaches. HOWEVER, we cannot always honor every request. Sometimes there are just too many requests, players have changed age groups or we just need to move kids around to balance out the size of teams. When a fulll team requests each other, we have a problem of creating a team that is similar to the previous year. This causes issues for the enitre league, having one team more advanced than others. This is not the mission of our recreational league.




When will I hear from a coach?


Coaches should contact players approximately 1 week prior to the beginning of the season.




Where are the games played?


All games are played at: California Soccer Park 9800 Old Oregon Trail Redding, California 530-221-2344





COVID-19

Do I need a Mask?


Yes, all who enter the park must be wearing a mask, at this time. We will inform you if this changes. It is recommended by the State and County that masks be worn by players during play. Players must wear a mask on the sideline and during breaks. All coaches and spectators must wear a mask at all times while in the park.




What do I need to know about Saftey?


We follow the State and County youth sport guidlines. More info here..... -Maintain physcial distance of 6ft at all times -Follow the directional arrows on the ground -Follow the new one-way drop off system in the parking lot, upon entering the park from Old Oregon Trail new cones will guide you toward the center of the parking lot.
