We will try to accomodate requests for specific practice days, times and locations however, we cannot guarantee this. Requesting a
specific coach will not guarantee placement with that coach. Enter your request under the COMMENT box when you are registering. Also,
please enter days your child may not be able to practice during the week.

will have a $5 additional charge. All checks are made out to Olympic Soccer Academy. Detail info is available at the registration section.
Due to scheduling, team planning and administration time, no refunds will be issued 2 weeks prior to the start of the 1st game

VOLUNTEER PARENT COACH
Our 5 v 5 recreational soccer league is coached by volunteer parents and also High School Team Olympic Players. Players who have
parents willing to coach will move to the top of our registration list. Olympic Soccer Academy provides training programs for parents/adult
volunteers interested in coaching. We hope you will consider helping our 5 v 5 Recreational Soccer Program by coaching or volunteering.
If interested, there is a section in the online registration program to select volunteer/coach.
A free clinic will be held by USSF licensed coaches for all the recreational players.
This will give the volunteer coaches some great drills to conduct during practice and a great session for all kids.
Your child’s coach will contact you by phone or email regarding practice/game schedule/ and more info after the coach's meeting. The
Coach meeting will be held sometime at the end of April 2020.

weeknight. If multiple Sundays are cancelled due to weather, some games may not be made up.
