Season Intro Camp
The “Rustbuster” will be held on Saturdays at Gateway Indoor Soccer facility starting October 9. For four weeks prior to the start of the season a “RUSTBUSTER” will be facilitated by the Phoenix District Soccer Program. This is a program where the players will be taught soccer skills, play games, and increase players’ physical literacy.
Friend Requests Policy:
Player requests will only be considered in the following priority:
- A parent that volunteers as a coach for the indoor soccer program
- Both players must have requested to play with each other (one friend only)
- Friend/Player requests will only be considered for same birth year participants. We will not consider requests that are made for more than 1 birth year apart.
*requests for a coach are not permitted
Requests are considered but are not guaranteed.
Trying to coordinate the many player requests we receive each year, has made it difficult and time consuming to prepare the team rosters. We are also always short coaches due to our large soccer participants. We hope you will consider coaching in order to help the program run smoothly.
