Centre Soccer Association

The In-House Program teaches the fundamentals of soccer and encourages skill development and game knowledge.

The main objectives are good sportsmanship, team play, and to have Fun, Fun, Fun!!!  Each child / player is granted EQUAL playing time in all games and scrimmages.  To help players become accustomed to playing every position and to help them understand the game, players will be playing all positions including goalie until they reach the U11 level.  U5 teams do not have goalies.

Fall: September - October     Winter*: January - February      Spring: April - June   

*The Winter season meets once a week and is only open to players first grade and up who have played soccer on a team before.

Seating and Spectator Behavior

Spectators and parents are asked to sit on the opposite side of the field from the players.  In U9 and up games, please sit at least six feet back from the sidelines as most games should have linesmen that need this space to do their jobs.

Good sportsmanship is an important part of team playing.  Parents are asked to only cheer on their children and teammates and leave the coaching to the coaches.  Please do not go up and down the sidelines telling players what to do.  Cheer from your side of the sidelines.  We want this to be a fun and positive experience for your child.

Team Parent

Each team is assigned a team parent who has volunteered to set up a snack schedule for your team.  Snacks are part of the U8 and under programs.  U9 and up teams have the option as a team to provide snacks or not to.  Your team parent will discuss this with you at the first practice. 

The team parent will also be asking all players' parents to fill out an EMERGENCY MEDICAL CARD on the first night.  Please fill out both sides and return them.  They are for the coaches to keep for the season.

The team parent will distribute and collect raffle tickets for CSA fundraiser.
