It's time to start referee certification for the upcoming summer soccer season.
Quickstart: Head over to https://www.minnesotasrc.com/ to get started.
Become a referee and improve your game while gaining invaluable leadership, communication and organization skills for college and beyond. --Not to mention great pay and a flexible schedule! Any U14 and up player is strongly encouraged to consider refereeing this year. The job pays well and adds considerably to a player’s understanding and respect for the game. Where else can a teenager be guaranteed a job and pocket $25-$40 in an hour? Visit our "Becoming a Referee" page to get started
This is an competitive outdoor soccer program that is for players from ages 7-18 years old. It is a competitive league which includes travel to outside cities for games. The season begins in mid to late March and concludes by the 2nd - 4th week of July, depending on age level. A player can expect to have either practices or games 2-3 times each week. Games will begin in early May and continue into mid-late July. All practices are held at local gyms and/or fields in Watertown or Mayer. Each player is required to purchase a jersey uniform set once registered and assigned to a team. All players must have shin pads and gym shoes/cleats for all practices and games. In a typical season, each team will play 10-12 games. Half of all games at home and half at an outside city. All home games are played in Watertown and Mayer. Players are expected to attend as many practices and games. Please note: If your player is playing on a C2 or higher level team, they will be expected to participate in at least 75% of all practices. Parents are expected to attend team meetings and fill in any necessary forms.
While it is not required, most teams choose to participate in at least one outside tournament throughout the summer session. Expect to pay additional fees to cover tournament costs.
If we do not have a parent volunteer coach, it is possible that we will not be able to form a team or would need to hire a paid coach, if one can be found. If a paid coach is required, an additional coach fee will be required from each player. We would cap the additional cost to $100.00 per player.
This is a competitive travel soccer season which runs from Mid - August through the first week of October. You can expect to have practice 2-4 days each week Monday through Thursday. It is likely that the older birth year teams will likely have training 4 days/week and incur a larger registration fee as well. (U13+ teams) ALL games are played on the weekends throughout September and the first part of October. A typical season would have 5-6 league games, 2-3 played at home (CCLS in Watertown) and 2-3 away games played in surrounding communities. (Can be as far as St. Cloud or St. Peter, Minneapolis etc.) Some teams may decide to participate in a team tournament which would require additional cost. Every player is expected to purchase a complete uniform set after assigned to a team. If you are a new player, we will have uniforms available for purchase and can arrange a "try-on" night as needed.
Please Note: We rely on parent volunteers for coaching and managing our teams. If we cannot find a parent volunteer to coach/manage, we may not be able to provide a team or may need to charge an additional fee if a paid coach can be found. The additional fee could be as much as $50.00-100.00 per player. Please consider helping out as this keeps our registration fees reasonable!
