  • Junior Paladins Soccer – Register Before January 17

    It’s hard to believe that the Spring Junior Paladins Soccer deadline of Friday, January 17 is almost here!  We are encouraging U12 players to register by January 14. We need at least 10 players to form a U12 team, and if we do not have enough players, we want U12 players to be able register to play with UFA (the UFA registration deadline is January 15).
      
    Players will be assigned to teams by age (U6, U8, U10, U12). Practices begin on Tuesday, February 17, and games begin on Saturday, March 7. Players will have one weeknight practice at Pinecrest one hour per week, and one Saturday game at the Polo Fields or Matt Park during the season. 
     
    If your Pre-K4-5th grade child is interested in playing, there are two places you will have to register - once on our Pinecrest Academy registration site, where you will submit your payment, and once on the UFA site, where you will submit your contact information and complete the necessary participation waivers. 
     
    Please keep in mind that you will ONLY submit payment through Pinecrest Academy, NOT UFA's system. Please click here for UFA Registration Instructions that will explain how to register in UFA's system and how to avoid the payment at the end of the UFA registration. 
     
    If you are interested in coaching a team, please let Mr. Lynch know via email.
     
    If you have questions about our Junior Paladins Soccer program, please contact Mr. Lynch.
     
    Let’s go, Junior Paladins!
