Match Days

U6 
Intra-squad matches are played on Saturdays from 9am–10am at Jones Bridge Park
Occasionally, you may be asked to participate in a friendly match with another club at an away location. In those instances you will be given notice in order to opt-in and make arrangements.

U8, U10, U12 & U14
Seasons consist of 8–10 matches. Home matches are played at Jones Bridge Park. Away matches are at opposing clubs' fields—including locations in Suwanee, Johns Creek and Sugar Hill. We try to schedule an equal amount of home/away matches, but due to scheduling conflicts, field availability, and referee assignments, this is not always possible. Matches will mainly be played on Saturdays, but will occasionally occur on Sunday afternoons.​

Equipment

What equipment do you need for soccer? The list isn’t quite as long as some sports, but there are some must-have soccer gear items your child needs to stay safe and have fun.

Ball - Players will need to have their own ball for practice/training sessions. Match day balls will be supplied by the club. It is important to be sure to get the correct ball size for your child.

  • Size 3: U6 & U8

  • Size 4: U10 & U12

  • Size 5: U14

Cleats - Players should have appropriate footwear for practice and matches. Soccer cleats have no toe spike- shorter cleats allow player stay closer to ground and keep balance. (and helps prevent injury to other players during higher kicks if foot leaves the ground.)  Players will not be allowed to play while wearing Baseball or Football cleats. This is for safety purposes, as the design of baseball and football cleats are different. Feet fly during high kicks and the toe spike is an accident waiting to happen.

 

Shin Guards​ - Protective shin guards are another requirement in most leagues. They rest at the front of the shin to protect from errant kicks and fast-moving balls.

 

Practice ClothesThese should be clothes allow the player to be comfortable in day's climate (i.e., warm, cold, wet, etc.), but also allow them to move freely. Sweat-wicking material keeps your child cool and dry during sweaty warm-weather practices. Select clothes that can get dirty, sweaty, grass stained, etc.

 

Socks Just like players need specific cleats, they also needs socks designed for soccer. The long socks go up and over the shin guards.

 

Water Bottle​ - Players spend a lot of time running up and down the field. The majority of the season(s) often falls during warmer weather. Hydration is important, so outfit your child with their own water bottle. Write their name on the bottle to avoid mix-ups.
