Opening Day will start with a parade from Middle School to City Stadium, where we will have a brief opening ceremony, followed by your first game. You will be notified by your coaches about practices and schedules.
Parade: Please wear your uniform and meet at the Glen Cove Middle School Horseshoe parking area between 9:30 AM-9:50 AM. Line up behind your team sponsor banner which will be on the floor of the parking area. TIP “drop off your child or park at the City stadium parking lot and walk to the horseshoe (off Forest Ave)”
The parade begins at 10:00 AM SHARP!! We walk through downtown G.C. to the stadium off Morris Ave. The ceremony begins immediately after we arrive. Saturday games begin at 11:00 AM
Please follow the schedule which was emailed to each Div. I will email the Divisions again one by one and leave hard copies with the Recreation Dept at City Hall 2nd Floor this week.
GAMES: Shin guards are MANDATORY FOR ALL PLAYERS AND ALL DIVISIONS. SOCCER CLEATS ARE RECOMMENDED. PLEASE, PLEASE NO earrings, nose rings, belly button rings etc.
PRACTICES: Are run by the volunteer coaches, not the main league. Your COACH will indicate a time and place for soccer practices. Please note the practice is not mandatory we ask our VOLUNTEER COACHES to do the best they can to hold at least one practice a week, especially during the start of the season. THIS WEEK WE HAVE CITY STADIUM TUESDAY-FRIDAY 5:00 PM TO 8:00 PM FOR PRACTICE AND UNIFORM HANDOUT. Friday night Sept 9th Soccer fields 1/2/3 will not be available. Charity softball game GCPD vs GCFD will be held on those fields. COME JOIN US AND SUPPORT OUR FIRST RESPONDERS FRIDAY NIGHT!
Your soccer coach will contact you via SI app, email or text. IF YOU HAVE NOT HEARD FROM YOUR COACH EMAIL THE LEAGUE! GCJSOCCER@GMAIL.COM and provide your cell number and email address (name and team as well) DO NOT CALL THE SOCCER NUMBER. We can not reply to calls.
LAWS OF THE GAME: We follow FIFA and LI Jr. Soccer laws however unique to GCJr Soccer- No slide tackling! No heading the soccer ball in Divisions K-3 Boys and K-2G. Divisions 4B and 3G may heed the ball.
Good luck to all!!!
