Starting in late November and running until late December (one day per week) we will have a Technical Academy run by Castleton Men’s soccer coach John O’Connor to work specifically on ball control and other important techniques of the game. This takes place in Shape Gym at Castleton University.
After the 1st of the year, we will play Futsal games (indoor soccer) on Sunday late
Mid-March, your team will practice once a week at Spartan Arena (the rink behind the Mall) either on Tuesday or Thursday. There will also be another Technical Academy on Wednesdays, also at Spartan Arena.
May thru June teams will practice twice per week at the Hathaway (Polo) fields in Rutland Town. Coaches will poll their athletes to find days that work best for both the coach and athletes.
Our teams participate in the Vermont Soccer League which is a traveling league. The game schedules typically finalized by April with travel ranging from Burlington, Barre, Morristown and Manchester. Parents are responsible for transportation to and from games.
Along with your 6-8 game league schedule, your team will compete in 3 tournaments. Given the uncertainty of COVID, we are waiting to see what tournaments will still take place this year before publishing them. The corresponding weekends from last spring which played in tournaments are as follows; May 7th, June 18 & 19, June 25 & 26.
