A lot of questions about MASKS :)

Hickory INDOOR Soccer is a county park and rec program. We operate out of county space (Hickory Forest Hill Activity Center).

The current mandate by the governor requires mask to be worn indoors. So, everyone in the facility for indoor soccer needs to wear a mask. Coaches, spectators etc must wear a mask.

The exception in this mandate from the governor is during physical activity (such as playing soccer), if you feel wearing a mask represents a bona fide health risk, then you do not wear a mask. The parent / guardian of each player makes this decision; not the program.

So , who decides if your child wears a mask during soccer............you do :)

Registration is filling up FAST.
www.HFGREC.com then click on INDOOR SOCCER.

Covid19 protocols require more space in between games; to allow the arena to clear out etc. That does reduce the number of participants we can get into the program this year. The program fills up EVERY YEAR; it's likely that registration will fill up even quicker this year. Register TODAY !!!!!

Registration for the 2020 / 2021 season opens tomorrow night........one second after midnight.....in other words Friday morning 🙂 I know everyone is going to stay up late just to be the first to register 🙂 *** There will be covid19 protocols in place. We are still finalizing the procedures with the county and will have posted soon. That said, they can also change by the time we actually take the field in late November **** New this year we are also forming a High School "Co-Ed" league. I would imagine it's self explanatory but that league is for high school aged kids etc. All the other age groups remain the same etc. More information and to register is at www.HFGREC.com and then click on the Indoor Soccer tab. NOT the Indoor Soccer Frequently Asked questions tab 🙂 just the Indoor Soccer Tab

Something I never thought I would see

I took this on Saturday
Saturday in mid March Usually is the homestretch of the playoffs and the building is usually the loudest it ever is

I had to take this picture.

I have three (3) boys that play the game - various club leagues etc Needless to say I see A LOT of soccer. I took a look at my schedule and over the past 10 days I’ve been on a soccer field 9 of the last 10 days as a coach, referee or trainer

Sadly I also see way to much what I call bad parent behavior also. Early this season I saw a game get terminated because the coach of the other team got a yellow card, then a red card - then refused to leave so the referee terminated the game. Yes terminated and yes the referee can do that.
Yesterday I saw 3 parents from a Baltimore based club behave like .... well if I type the word I would use to define their behavior the Rec council would get mad......Let’s just say they yelled at the referee the entire march.

Now, it’s worth noting neither of these incidents were the Hickory program but still youth soccer locally

Then I saw this Friday
This was our Hickory program
This is AFTER the game.
One of these teams just lost.
Note the smiles. They tried and played hard.
They had FUN.
It’s supposed to be FUN.
The kids are having fun playing the game

Sometimes kids can teach adults some things

Good Luck to everyone in the final few weeks of the indoor season !!

Sports Parent Question :)

It's typical in sports (soccer) to give out some type of award for 1st and 2nd place etc.

Medals ? Small Trophies ? or T-shirts ('champion' or 'finalist' etc). What is cooler to a kid ?

01/18/2020

The snow has arrived 🙂

The Hickory indoor soccer program will be closing at 1:50pm today

THANK YOU for registering this season. Most rosters are posted and most schedules have been distributed to the coaches. They will put the schedule into Sports Engine and / or send to you soon. CLINIC, BOYS 9.10 , GIRLS 9.10 AND GIRLS 13.14 ARE NOT DONE YET. Should be done tomorrow. Some age groups start this week; others do not start until after Thanksgiving.

IF you can not see an update on the Sports Engine app I would try the website directly as opposed to the app; OR I would also log all the way out of the app and then log back in - for whatever reason that seems to reset it for the new season etc.

Boys 9/10 and Girls 13/14 have not had the coaches meeting yet; those teams will be formed this weekend. You should hear in about a week from today from a coach The delay was driven by a high number of registrations and a need for more volunteer coaches.

Indoor Soccer Registration is OPEN.

www.HFGREC.com and click on INDOOR SOCCER. Right now we are at about 65% capacity and typically some age groups start to fill up around the middle of this month.

HOW ARE TEAMS FORMED ?
The coaches will meet in early November for "THE DRAFT". This year's draft will be on November 3rd or November 10th (depending on the age group). COACHES ONLY attend this and they will be notified later this month. It is always later in the day to avoid conflicts with outdoor soccer games.

DRAFT DETAILS?
Below is a snap shot of the instructions that will be given to each coach.

At THE DRAFT. Each coach will roll the two (2) dice. Highest number wins. Highest number picks 1st in the 1st round and we proceed in a clockwise manner for round 1. We follow what I have heard called a 'snake draft' meaning if you pick first in Round 1 you pick last in Round 2. The flip side being if you picked last in Round 1 you have the opening pick in Round 2

You (the coach) determine what players you select. We rely on your experience and knowledge to help balance and create parity within the league.
The league DOES NOT GUARANTEE ANY TEAM, TEAMMATE, OR COACH REQUEST BY A PLAYER (other then siblings). There are no exceptions to this.

My advice to each of you is when it is your turn to pick, select (in your opinion) the most skilled player left on the board EVEN if that player has requested another team / coach.
You owe that to your team, the other teams and the league to do so. Now, if the players left you consider 'equal in skill set'; and some of them requested another coach.......sure pick a different player in that situation.

We will follow the Vegas rule of 'card laid is a card played'. Meaning if you say on your turn "I'm selecting player John Doe'. It's done - he is on your team. Unfortunately in the past we had several coaches indicate they were talked out of a pick by other coaches and felt pressure to do so.

Finalized rosters, for each team in the age group, will be sent to ALL coaches by November 15th. Rosters can also be accessed via SportsEngine.

10/02/2019

The INDOOR SOCCER season will start Monday, November 18th (Boys 11/12). Other age groups (7/8 and 9/10) will follow later that week and the following week.

The older age groups, 13/14 and 15/17 will start after Thanksgiving.

10/02/2019

Teams are formed each year by a "DRAFT".
The coaching volunteers (one per team) gather and select players in a 'draft' format. ONLY the coach attends this. The draft this year will be on Sunday, November 3rd OR Sunday, November 10th. Depends on the age group.
Both will be in the evening to try and avoid any conflicts with outdoor soccer games. Specific times for each age group will be established soon.

Just a quick note.....we conclude the Indoor Soccer season with a league tournament. The start date varies by age group but typically around the 1st week in March 'tournament play' begins.

Coaches are starting to receive the schedule this week and next so they will distribute it soon.

** We use a very complex algorithm to see who plays who. Top secret classified ** etc.

We write each team on a piece of paper.
Drop them in a bag
and have random volunteers pull out one name at a time **

:) = complex algorithm

The seeding in the 'Tournament' is by RANDOM DRAW
