 FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

 Who can register with Acton Soccer Club?

We run house league programs for children/youth players, for those who will be five or older during the year of the season. So, for example, in 2017, those born in 2012 or earlier can play.

New this year: The Acton Soccer Club will not be running Select or Rep teams. Contact the Director of Competitive Soccer with questions. Interested in Coaching an Allstar team, please contact our Director of Coaching at coaching@actonsoccer.org .

Seventh year in 2017:  Gerry-HatTricks Adult Co-Ed recreational soccer. Run on mini-soccer fields, 5v5 (goalie plus 4 outfielders) on Sunday mornings at about 10-11 am with no referees - this is intended to reproduce the feel of the indoor Co-Ed league on Sunday afternoons. We have chosen Sunday mornings to try and catch the weather before it gets hot. And the costs were low -  it was a blast!
 
Ladies and Mens leagues are separate from Acton Soccer Club, but we work with the teams.  Contact the President at president@actonsoccer.org .

 Do they play out of town games?

Under-5 to Under-10 programs run in Acton. Under-12 and up play in other towns. Last year, for example, Under-12 boys played about 80% in Acton and 20% in Georgetown. Under-18 boys played games in Bolton, Georgetown, Milton, Hillsburgh, and Caledon.

 What about player books?

What about player books?
Since 2009 - Recreational players do not need player books! Select, Competitive (Rep), and All-Star (tournament) teams are the only ones needing books.

 Where are the soccer fields?

We have maps! Follow this link to the Acton field locations.
The pride of Acton are the two fields at Villa Park, also known as Acton Sports Park. Field #1 was the first lit field in Acton, and was open during the 2008 season. The second lit field was new for 2009. The fields belong to the Town of Halton Hills and Acton Villa rents them from the Town - but we are proud to point out that the Club contributed $150,000 of Charity Bingo earnings to this project.

 How do you know which age group they will play in?

See the table at the top of this page...


 Special Requests.

Once again, there are no special requests for youth players to choose team mates or coaches this year. We will, however, put children with parents if the parent is coaching, and we will put siblings on the same team as each other.

Requests for players to be in a higher age group - based on ability - will be considered carefully, and are usually (almost always) granted.

*** DUE TO ENORMOUS HEADACHES IN OTHER YEARS, WE DO NOT HONOR SOCIAL OR TRANSPORTATION REQUESTS. MOST OTHER LOCAL SOCCER CLUBS HAVE BEEN WORKING THIS WAY FOR YEARS. ***

Note that for Under-10 and younger, all players have the same schedule whatever team they are on. Older age groups should be able to car pool, parents can figure this out at practices and games.

 Which Age Groups are Mixed?

Under-8 and younger play with mixed teams. Since 2008, Under-10 is played as Boys and Girls separate leagues. Older ages are segregated into boys and girls.

 What nights are practices and games?

See table at top of this page.

 Is there a Rep or Select program?

No, Acton Villa will not be running Select or Rep programs this year. Acton Villa will still have Allstar teams. Contact the Director of Coaching with questions on Allstar teams or if you are interested in coaching or assisting with a team.

 Do the players keep their uniforms, like last year?

Yes, in YOUTH, outdoor they do: fees include shirt, shorts and socks. Players must provide shin guards and shoes.

In Gerry HatTricks, we provide a shirt: player provides everything else.

Men's Inter-County and Ladies Recreational Soccer League teams are run separately by the teams.

For ADULT indoor, the club will provide a shirt that the player can keep, but the player has to provide the rest of the equipment.

 How can I contribute to soccer in Acton?

We always need referees, adults and youths: training provided. Coaches are often in short supply, as are volunteers for administrative tasks. Visit the CONTACTS page to work out who to talk to.

Vacancies exist for:

Conveners, most age groups.

Coaches, most age groups.

Various admin positions.

 When are my team's photos being taken  . . .

Date in June 10th, 2017 from 9am to 2:30pm at the Indoor Facility at the Dufferin Centre in Acton.

 How do I alert my team that my child has severe allergies

Download our sample letter, fill in details, print out and give copies to your team parents, coach, convenor and the Registrar. If you click on the link it will open, or right click and "save target as", this all depends on your browser.

Be Safe Tip: Remind your child's coach to inform team mates and their parents of your child's allergies.
Don't forget to ask that snacks that may not be safe for your child be consumed after practice or game play once all equipment has been packed up to minimize the risk of cross-contamination of allergens onto the team's equipment!
