Email [email protected] with any questions. 

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

TEAM ASSIGNMENTS: CJ Division Coordinators organize the rosters. Please keep the following in mind when you register:

Some teams are oversubscribed (too many requests) so your child may not get their first or even second choice.  Please prepare both youself and your child appropriately. 

*Late sign ups are placed on a space available basis. If there is room on a requested team, we will try to place your child on that team. If we cannot find a suitable spot, CJ will issue a refund.

* Do not approach the coach to get a spot on a team. 

Roster size is based on age as outlined in the chart below: players on the field vs number of players on the roster.

* Players can be added to a team only by going through CJ HQ so they are properly registered and don't jump over any waitlisted players. No club players U8-U14.

PLEASE VOLUNTEER TO COACH!!!!!! You can click to volunteer during registration. 

 

UNIFORM POLICY: 

All CJ registered players/teams are required to wear the jerseys issued by CJ to be eligible to play in a game.  Shin guards are mandatory and must be completely covered by the sock. See Rules of Play for more detailed information/exceptions re goalkeepers and jewelry.

Note: field and goal size differ between age groups and dictates where each division plays their games.

Practices can usually take place on any field, regardless of age.

FIELD CLOSURES/ALL PRACTICES AND JK-U12 GAME CANCELLATIONS: Field closures due to weather are updated on this website by 4PM during the week and 7:30AM Saturday and 10AM Sunday. Check the website before going to the fields. Fields may remain closed for an additional day after heavy rain.

For U14 and U18: Practice-use the CJ website; Games-check the MARS website  http://www.marsoccer.org

For any games that are cancelled due to weather:  to reschedule, contact the opposing coach, agree on a date (Sundays work the best for most divisions), then email CJ HQ to schedule a field and request referees.  [email protected]

General Policies

1. Be civil and polite to EVERYONE, including the referees, the opposing players, and especially the County Deputies at Freedom Park.

2. Club OR Recreation-you cannot play both; some exceptions in the High School (U16-U19) division. Email CJ HQ with any questions.

3. 24 hour "cool down" period. Good rule of thumb: Do not approach a coach, player, official, or parent at the field immediately after a game. 

Thank you!

More information re: CJ Registration and Team Formation

Coaches: Please volunteer to coach your child's team!

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

* 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. 

Caps on Divisions:

* Divisions will be capped when they exceed field and volunteer capabilities; priority on wait list given to parents who sign up to lead a team as coach.

* Those players registered after the August 1 deadline or after the division cap is reached are automatically put on the Waitlist. We will make all attempts to place every child that signs up to play.

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

Roster Sizes:

* 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. 

Team Assignments:

* Team rosters and coach assignments are done by the CJ Division Coordinator (DC). Coaches do not put teams together. The CJ DC manages the entire division as fairly as possible.

* Please do not approach the coach directly to get a spot on a team. This puts him/her in a very awkward position since he/she has no control over team formation. 

* Some teams are over-subscribed (too many requests) so your child may not get their first or even second choice.  Please keep this in mind during registration and prepare your child appropriately.
