When updated for 2020/2021 season, we will add a complete schedule of trainings & events in a link where you will simply navigate to the tab with the appropriate birth year. For now, you'll find an overview of what the year looks like for our U11's & 12's.
We have an optional fall season for those that want to supplement their school season, or those that do not have one. We have training 2x a week at Veterans Park with 1 game on the weekend (7 week season). Players are able to sign up for training only, games only, or both.
This is our indoor season at our home base, the Robert E. Miller Centre North at the Champlain Valley Expo in Essex Junction. The only thing that is mandatory is the team training session, with a number of additional opportunities each week that most players take advantage of. This allows the players the opportunity to play 3-4 times a week, while also allowing some flexibility for those that play other sports.
Boys: Team training on Mondays 5-7pm. Skills session Saturday morning, 9-10:30am. Friday evening futsal games (optional, but recommended in sessions 1 and 2, mandatory for session 3.)
Girls: Team training Wednesdays 4:30-6:30pm. Optional skills session Saturday morning, 9-10:30am. Friday evening futsal games (optional, but recommended in sessions 1 and 2, mandatory for session 3.)
Extras: Monday night Boys' & Girls' Jr. Academy Sessions.
This is our outdoor season, kicking off with our Spring Training Weekend at Golden Goal Park. Teams will have 2 training sessions a week beginning May 1, likely at Veterans Park in So. Burlington or Centennial Field in Burlington. We will also compete in the Vermont Soccer league. Each team will go to 2 tournaments (typically this age group competes over Memorial Day weekend in Massachusetts and Father's Day weekend in Maine). Many teams opt to go to an early-season tournament in March as well.
All of our premier teams U12 and older will compete in the Vermont State Cup. Semi-final matches take place late May, with the finals in early June. Those teams that win their State Cup will represent Vermont at the Region I Championships in the week leadng up to the 4th of July. All teams should plan on ending July 4, with those that do not advance to Regionals concluding their season after Father's Day Weekend.
