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. 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.
SPRAINS and STRAINS
What are Sprains?
Sprains are torn or stretched ligaments. Ligaments connect bones together at joints. They are tough bands of fibrous tissue that connect two bones together in your joints. Symptoms will include swelling, pain on movement, bruising and inability to move the joint. You may feel a pop or tear when the sprain occurs.
The areas of your body that are most vulnerable to sprains are your ankles, knees, and wrists. A sprained ankle can occur when your foot turns inward, placing extreme tension on the ligaments of your outer ankle. A sprained knee can be the result of a sudden twist, and a wrist sprain can occur when falling on an outstretched hand.
Sprains are classified by severity:
Grade 1 sprain (mild): Slight stretching and some damage to the fibers of the ligament.
Grade 2 sprain (moderate): Partial tearing of the ligament. There is abnormal looseness (laxity) in the joint when it is moved in certain ways.
Grade 3 sprain (severe): Complete tear of the ligament. This causes significant instability and makes the joint nonfunctional.
What are Strains?
Strains are stretched or torn muscles or tendons. Tendons connect muscle to bone. Sudden twisting or pulling can cause strains. Strains can happen suddenly or develop over time. Back and hamstring muscle
strains are common. Many people get strains playing sports. Symptoms include pain, muscle spasms, swelling, and trouble moving the muscle.
Soccer, football, and other contact sports put athletes at risk for strains, as do sports that feature quick starts, such as hurdling, jumping, and running races. Gymnastics, tennis, rowing, golf and other sports that
require extensive gripping, have a high incidence of hand sprains. Elbow strains frequently occur in racquet, throwing, and contact sports.
Treatment of both sprains and strains usually involves resting the injured area, icing it, wearing a bandage or device that compresses the area, elevating the area (R.I.C.E.) and medicines such as Motrin, Ibuprofen or Tylenol. Later treatment might include exercise and physical therapy. More severe strains or sprains
may require surgery.
When should I call or see the doctor?
1. If you are unable to put weight on your ankle or knee.
2. If there is a deformity of a joint or it looks crooked.
3. If a joint feels unstable.
4. If your pain is very severe.
5. If you are unsure how serious your injury is.

Futsal is the only version of indoor soccer sanctioned by FIFA (a Futsal World Cup was just held this past summer, with Argentina winning their first world title). Unlike other variants of indoor soccer in the US, futsal is played on an indoor “court” with no walls and a special ball that is designed to bounce less than an outdoor ball.
Futsal is a great skill developer, demanding quick reflexes, fast thinking, and creativity. Slide tackles and excessive bodily contact is forbidden in T&C’s futsal, reducing the risk of injury and placing the focus on precise ball control, technical skill, and improved decision-making. After playing futsal, players find that they handle pressure better when they return to the outdoor season. Research indicates that individuals playing Futsal receive the ball 6x more often than they would when playing outdoor 11-a-side soccer.
T&C Winter Futsal will hold match days on the following dates:
10 December - Instructional Clinic
07, 14, 21, & 28 January & 11 February
No practices are required to play, although some teams may opt to do so on their own.
