****************************************

CHANGES FOR CJ: Charlotte Junior Soccer has grown along with our city. This past year, CJ experienced the biggest registration in our almost 50-year history with over 3000 children signed up to play. We find ourselves approaching limits in terms of both field space and coaches for our players. 

* We can succeed only if we have enough fields AND lead coaches for our players.

* CJ recently added more fields to our inventory through Mecklenburg Parks and Rec.

* Team creation and placement are totally dependent on Parent Volunteers to coach. 

* CJ provides the team equipment (balls. cones, pinnies), practice field, and game schedule for all coaches and teams.

* Pre-season coaching clinics, coaching manuals, and side-by-side coaching support at practices are provided free to all teams by our Director of Coaching, Bryan Mogford. 

* Divisions will be capped when they exceed field capabilities.  Players registered by the deadline and under the cap will be placed on teams with priority given to parents who sign up to lead a team as coach.

* Those players registered after the August 1 (Fall)/February 1 (Spring) deadline or after the division cap is reached are automatically put on the Waitlist. Waitlisted players will not be charged until they are placed on a team. Lead coach volunteers on the Waitlist will have priority in creating new teams.

* If we are unable to secure a parent or parents to coach, that team will unfortunately be disbanded; those families will receive a full refund. 

* Roster sizes will be based on age as outlined in the chart below. Any exceptions will be extremely limited and at the sole discretion of each Division Coordinator. No one benefits from oversized rosters. 

* Players can only be added to a roster by the CJ Division Coordinator (DC). Coaches do not put teams together. The CJ DC is the only one in position to manage the entire division equitably and fairly. 

* Please respect our volunteer coaches  by NOT approaching them directly to get a spot on their team. This puts them in a very awkward position since they have no control over team formation. 

* Note that some teams are over-subscribed so your child may not get their first or even second choice as we balance rosters within a division. Please bear this in mind when registering and stay flexible.
