EUFC Fall 2020 Intramural Program (K-2nd) - PLAYER
Welcome to the new online registration platform for Exeter United FC's 2020 Fall Intramural soccer season!
Our goal is to provide a fun, safe, and productive environment for your child to learn and grow within the game of soccer. Our Coaches and Volunteers are dedicated to helping build skill as well as character and respect in every player involved with our club.
Focusing on our primary objective of ensuring the safety of our players, volunteers, and families, while still giving EUFC’s youngest players a chance to take the field, we have made considerable changes to the design of our 2020 Fall Intramural program. One of the most significant differences is that age groups will be based on school year, not a player’s birth year. The Fall program this year will be open to players in the following age groups:
· Kindergarten – born after 8/31/2014 but before 9/1/2015
· 1st Grade – born after 8/31/2013 but before 9/1/2014
· 2nd Grade – born after 8/31/2012 but before 9/1/2013
You will notice we are not offering a Fall program for younger 2015 players or 2016 players this year. While we are saddened to make this choice, we had to establish a minimum age at which we could reasonably expect players to be able to follow instructions and comply with the club’s COVID Action Plan requirements.
The Fall Intramural season will consist of a 7-week program with a flexible schedule. We plan to hold all Fall Intramural activities at Lorane Elementary School. The season will start just after Labor Day, on September 8th. During the first three weeks teams will have 1-2 practice sessions per week. Beginning Week 4, we will add game play which may occasionally include weekend games. Game format for all age groups will be 5v5. Team rosters will be kept small (max. 8 players) and most teams will have only 1 coach. Coaches will have the opportunity to choose practice days, providing flexibility in this program. This also allows the club to maximize spacing between teams and minimize the total number of players, coaches, & parents present each night.
Another key change for 2020 will be Intramural player uniforms. Players will receive a complete Adidas Estro uniform kit including team-color jersey, black short and black socks for $25. We have also simplified this process, so you DO NOT need to visit Sneaker Villa to place a uniform order. You will simply enter size information in the registration form, and uniform costs are included in the fee payment plan.
Finally, one last consideration we will be making during the Fall Intramural season is team roster formation. There are several questions in the registration form designed to allow us to group players that anticipate having routine contact during the fall season such as pod schooling, common daycare, neighbors, siblings, etc. We will then attempt to team up these players to minimize additional exposure for our program participants & families.
Total cost for the 2020 Fall Intramural soccer program is $75 including the uniform kit. This fee will be paid in installments to avoid the extra work necessary and potential delay of issuing refunds should our season be cut short. We ask that you do not pay these installments before the due dates to make this payment plan work:
· A $15 non-refundable commitment fee is due at the time of registration to cover fixed player costs and supplies purchased to mitigate the spread of COVID-19.
· A second of payment of $25 is due on August 31st. This is our uniform ordering deadline and will be applied to those costs. Note that once uniforms have been ordered, this payment will also likely be non-refundable.
· Final payment of $35 will be due the end of Week 3 on September 25th. If the season is cancelled after this date, EUFC will work with its membership to refund as much of the collected fees as possible.
If you have any questions about the Fall Intramural program, the registration process using our new system, or have questions/issues while registering your child, please contact Jim Noel at firstname.lastname@example.org or by cell phone at 484-995-5518.
