Registration Details for Fall 2019
This season we will be continuing a pilot option for 5/6U parents to make a donation rather than volunteering. To do this pilot, it means that a different registration form must be used and unfortunately cannot be completed with registration of older players.

The form will have you make your donation or sign up right then to coach your player. If you would like to volunteer in some other capacity, up to $25 of your donation can be refunded back to you at the time that you are volunteering.

If you have any questions or feedback, please contact BonSoccerRegistrar@gmail.com or U6soccer@yahoo.com

About U5/U6 Soccer

Required equipment

A team shirt will be provided to each player and coach on the first day. This shirt should be worn at each game. All players must wear shin guards and have a ball. It is reccomended that players wear cleats, but not required. There are extras available of all equipment at the concession stand. Stop by if you need something and see what may work for you.

Weather

Games will be played when it is cold and when it is warm, when it is wet and when it is dry. That's all the fun of soccer in Iowa. If games need to be cancelled, a message will be put on Facebook and an email will be sent as soon as possible. Due to trying to have as many games as possible, it may be 5 before a game is cancelled for the evening or 8:30 for the morning. If the fields are closed or tornado sirens going off, please know that all games are cancelled and do not wait for an email. Games that are cancelled are not made up unless otherwise noted at the time. Seasonal weather may dictate how many games can be played in a season.

Coaching

All coaching is done by parent volunteers who have passed a background check. We always have a need for more help. Since you'll be at the game anyway, please consider helping out your player and volunteering to coach their team.

Practices/Games 

At each time, the first half will be a practice. This is time to go over drills and learning different plays. This continues for about 25 minutes. The players then take about a 5 minute break, then begin their game. The game is 4 six minute quaters with a 6 minute halftime. Players are usually swapped in and out each 3 minutes. There is no 'goalie/keeper' at this age. All players are to try to get a goal and all are to help defend their goal.

Drills you can do at home

Practicing with your player is a great way to instill the love the game and help them learn. Here are some that are favorites You can also search 'U6 drills' and there are multiple sites that can help. Some even include videos!
