Spring is in the air, soccer practices are underway, and the 2017 soccer season starts this weekend at T&C. We are so excited for our 1500+ players and 300+ volunteers to kick off another soccer season at one of the very best sports facilities in Central Texas. Through the incredible support and leadership of the Town & Country Optimist Club, our soccer program has blossomed in to a full service club offering Recreational, Academy and Competitive soccer for ages 4 through 18. And this is offered at a very attractive price, with affordability being one of our key directives at T&C.
We hope you enjoy your soccer season, and we encourage you to remember our motto at the fields… Play hard, Play fair, Have fun. Please be supportive of the players and the referees, and do your best to set an example as a T&C participant on the sidelines, in the games or around the facility. If you see one of our board members or commissioners wearing their blue T&C polo shirt around the campus, please say hello and introduce yourself. We love to hear feedback from you about your experience at T&C, and strive every season to keep improving. Thanks for your time, and we will leave you with a few important dates for the Spring season…

Return to Team Deadline: We build teams by first trying to keep together teams from the previous season IF the coach and team returns the following season and you register by the return to team deadline: January 13 (Jan 27 for U15-U19). After the Return to team deadline, teams are formed by "buddy requests", and then by grouping by school and neighborhood proximity; late registrations and waitlists will be placed on whichever teams have space, regardless of requests or location.
Information Regarding Uniforms: Uniforms can be ordered during the registration process for all recreational divisions. Uniforms are NOT included in Spring registration fees. Any uniform questions, please contact the T&C Uniform Coordinator JL Gray.
Every player needs their own ball, soccer-cleats or turf shoes or plain athletic shoes (no baseball cleats and no shoes with a toe cleat such as often used in football!), shin guards, team jersey, soccer socks, soccer shorts, and a water bottle.
Following team assignment, coaches will be contacting players/parents for first practices/schedules. The office will not have any information regarding practices/schedules as this is decided closer to the start of the season. Please refer to the sport FAQ or schedules tabs for general information.
Registration Changes: Please note changes to any registrations will not be permitted once the sport session is in late registration or once player has been assigned to a team.
Buddy Request: Please note, buddy requests are considered but are NOT GUARANTEED. Due to various criteria, the "Buddy System" does not guarantee your request will be granted. When teams are formed, we build teams by first trying to keep together teams from the previous season IF the coach and team returns the following season and you register by the return to team deadline. After the Return to team deadline, teams are formed by "buddy requests", and then by grouping by school and neighborhood proximity; late registrations and waitlists will be placed on whichever teams have space, regardless of requests or location. We CANNOT guarantee every child will be placed on their neighborhood team. Submission of a buddy request does not guarantee placement of players together as balanced team formation takes precedence.
Wait Lists: Certain programs are offered to a limited number of participants. Once we have reached capacity with our registrations, we will allow participants to be added to a waiting list (maintained in a “first come, first serve” manner). The waitlist is used for fill in spots only. A person accepted from the waitlist will fill a spot on an already formed team. No requests will be honored. Players placed on waitlist are not guaranteed a placement on a team. Participants on the waiting lists will then be contacted if spaces become available in which you will be required to pay for your registration.
Refund Policy: I understand that absolutely no refunds will be given once the season has begun. No refunds given to decal orders, late fees or donations. There is a 10% admin fee held out on ALL approved refunds. In addition to the 10% admin fee, 50% will be refunded during late registration, and no refunds will be given after the start of the T&C soccer season or the team's first game, whichever comes first.
Open practice will be rescheduled for next Saturday, January 21 on field 4. Boys will be from 1pm-2pm and girls will from 2pm-3pm. On January 21st, the following teams will be hosting and open practice:

The overall purpose of an open practice is to allow existing teams to remain active during the post / pre season. Additionally, it is an opportunity for new and returning players to practice with established and perhaps higher level teams while meeting new coaches and players in a low pressure and typically fun environment.
The above listed teams are at the same or higher level of your current team. Though these teams will be looking to fill any open positions on their roster, please understand that this is not an open tryout for all to attend. Only those who are truly committed to the game and are looking to play a higher level of soccer should attend.
Solicitation by the coaches is prohibited. If your player is interested in an evaluation please ask to speak to the desired coach for information about their team and any availability on their roster. If you wish to contact the coach, please email the registrar, and I will provide the coach contact information.
