Rosedale Soccer is open to everyone, you don’t have to live in Rosedale to participate. If you know anyone who would be interested in joining, please share this with them.
If your child is born 2009 or later there are a few things to be aware of. The NW communities league that we participate in has created a new U11 division. Depending on registration numbers, this age group may be combined with the U13 (2007, 2008) group. The league is trying to eliminate mixed division so ideally we will be able to field a girls team and a boys team (otherwise mixed will play in boys division). Also, based on enrollment numbers over the past few years it’s possible we won’t have enough kids in the U15 (2005, 2006) and U18 (2002, 2003, 2004) divisions. If you have a child in those age groups and we don’t field a team we can either check with neighbouring communities to see if they have spots or we will refund your registration.
Please note there is a new soccer email address, email@example.com
Game night information
As always, the Rosedale Soccer web site (https://myrosedale.info/soccer/) is where schedule and weather information will be posted. The main criteria for cancelling an evening of soccer is player safety. This means that light rain, damp fields or cool weather doesn’t necessarily mean soccer will be cancelled (of course, individually its parent’s discretion so if you don’t think your kid(s) will enjoy less than ideal weather you can choose not to attend).
We’d like to remind everyone that Rosedale Soccer is a parented activity and that we take no responsibility for your children. Co-coaches are only there to guide the activities, they do not watch your kids. This means that if an issue arises with your child, because of injury, inattention, roughhousing or anything else, YOU must address the issue. If you fail to do so, we believe it’s reasonable for another parent to address the issue. If you must leave the field, you need to designate someone else to take responsibility of your child.
Parking in/near crosswalk
The city recently updated the parking rules for the crosswalk across 11th Avenue (between the RCA fields and Rosedale School). They have added no stopping signs surrounding the crosswalk. As many of our families have kids playing on both fields, this crosswalk is heavily used during soccer and we ask that parents abide by the no stopping signs to ensure this crosswalk has open lines of sight.
U4-U8 Wrap-Up Party
The Wrap-Up Party will be on Thursday, June 25th, 2020 starting at 6pm (which will be the final night of soccer).
If you are interested in volunteering, let us know. We are looking for volunteers to plan the event, purchase items, help setup and clean-up. We’re also looking for other volunteers to help hand out food and run the different stations during the actual event. Ideally, these would be non U4, U6, U8-parents as it’s nice for the kids to be able to have a parent with them. If you know anyone who might be able to help (such as older kids, grandparents, neighbours, etc), please let me know. We’d like to have 10-15 people available during the event to help kids and parents enjoy the wrap-up party.
