What is FC Tred Avon?
FC Tred Avon is a new, year-round youth soccer program that will be operated by the YMCA of the Chesapeake’s volunteers and staff. It will include competitive and instructional soccer programs during the fall and spring, as well as indoor soccer during the winter months and instructional camps this summer.
The goal of this exciting new initiative is to provide the children and families of the Mid-Shore with all of the elements of an enjoyable, quality soccer experience – from attractive uniforms and evenly-matched teams to organized game-day operations and well-trained coaches and referees.
When will all of this get underway?
Registrations for our Winter Indoor 2017 divisions – (ages 2-3) U4, (ages 4-5) U6,(ages 6-7) U8, (ages 8-9) U10, (ages 10-11) U12, and (ages 12-13) U14 – will begin on October 2017.
Child's age will be determined by age on August 31, 2016.
When will the Winter Indoor season get underway and how long will it last?
Practices and games will be held on Saturdays, beginning January 7 and ending March 11. U4, U6, and U8 leagues will plat at Easton High School. U10, U12 and U14 will play at Saints Peter and Paul.
How much will the Fall soccer league cost to play?
With a cost of just $60 for YMCA members and $85 for program participants, it is our goal to offer an elite experience at the affordable prices that our friends have come to expect from the YMCA. The YMCA will never turn a family away for financial reasons, and financial assistance opportunities are available. It is very important to us that the FC Tred Avon program reflect the rich ethnic and cultural diversity of our region.
Where will games and practices be held?
Games and practices will be scheduled at soccer fields throughout Easton and Talbot County. Children throughout the Mid-Shore counties served by the YMCA of the Chesapeake will be eligible to participate, and we hope to eventually attract enough interest to schedule practices and games in other counties throughout the region.
How will FC Tred Avon offer evenly-matched teams and competitive games?
There are few things more detrimental to the youth soccer experience than imbalanced teams and games with lopsided scores. Mindful of that, the FC Tred Avon team will host mandatory assessments for new players on Friday, December 16 from 5-7 pm and Sunday, December 18 from 11 am-1pm which will allow staff to evaluate our players by their stage of development and assemble teams accordingly. If your child played fall soccer with FC Tred Avon your child will not need to be assessed for Indoor Soccer.
Will these be co-ed or gender-specific teams?
Our U4, U6 and U8 divisions will feature co-ed teams, while our U10 and U12 teams will be gender specific.
What equipment and apparel will be provided by the league?
We will provide all of the necessary field equipment, as well as jerseys and socks. Families will provide black shorts and shin guards as well as all necessary drinks and snacks.
