The Cutters Soccer Club will be hosting their annual Player Placements for travel teams on June 9th & 10th, 2014 at Karst Farm Park for the 2014/2015 seasons. The yearly player placement process allows the club to review our teams and players and make any necessary adjustments so that each player is placed in the best team environment to foster maximum player development. This is also the opportunity for new players to join the club and participate on the club’s travel teams.
Player Placements for each age group will take place either from 5:30-7pm OR 7:15-8:45pm. You can sign up to attend here.

U9-U10 Jr Cutters – Jr Cutters is the introduction to travel soccer program intended to transition the club’s youngest players from recreation to the more advanced format of travel soccer. Jr Cutters is a two year program and all players interested are accepted as space allows and is intended to be an inclusive program. One of the goals of the Jr Cutters is to bring similarly interested players together to receive age appropriate training and development overseen by the club’s travel coaching staff. The program is intended to be FUN and build a passion for the sport of soccer. Skill building and ball control will be a high priority and each player will be encouraged to take risks, solve problems and given the freedom to be creative on the soccer field.
Practice will occur two times per week from August to October in the fall. In the spring practice will begin following spring break in March and conclude approximately at the end of May. Optional winter training (Nov-March) at Bloomington United Soccer School (busoccer.com) with Cutters’ Director of Coaching (Tom Berry) is strongly encouraged but not mandatory and is a separate fee from the Cutters Soccer Club tuition.
The Jr. Cutters will participate in the ISL Academy League. League results are not recorded and are not the objective of the program. Games are typically played on Saturdays at Karst Farm Park, or at another club within approximately a 70 mile radius of Bloomington. The league is formatted to play double headers on each game weekend to minimize travel at this age. Families should anticipate 4-5 Saturdays of participation throughout each season.
U11-U14 Cutters Soccer Club – Club soccer is a one year commitment (two seasons, fall & spring). The Fall season begins early/mid August and typically lasts mid to late October or early November. The Spring season begins the week following the MCCSC spring break and lasts until approximately early June. Practices are held 2 times per week during both fall and spring seasons and games are most commonly played on weekends. Occasionally, games may be played on weeknights and are usually reschedules from rainouts. U11-U14 teams typically participate in the ISL, C.I.Y.S.L. or G.I.R.L.S. leagues.
Most of the Cutters travel teams will compete in one to three tournaments during each season. The individual coaches, based on their desire to seek appropriate competition for the individual team, select the tournament(s) with guidance from the Director of Coaching. Tournaments are most often in-state competitions, but sometimes travel outside the state of Indiana is necessary and beneficial to the team’s development.
If your child is invited to join a Cutters Soccer Club travel team and agrees to play, they are accepting a commitment to the club for one year (2 seasons, fall and spring for U9-U14). 100% commitment is required to your fellow teammates and coaches. Players are expected to make a strong effort to attend all practices and games. It is expected that any conflicts will be communicated with your coaches and managers well in advance so that the impact on the team (e.g., playing with fewer players, being forced to forfeit, etc.) can be minimized and alternative solutions (i.e. club passing) can be explored. Excessive absences may be reflected in reduced playing time or future team placement. Cutters Soccer Club obviously understands absences due to family/school commitments or sickness/injury. However, it’s essential that you communicate problems/conflicts to your coach as far in advance as possible. If a player is not able to make this commitment it is not recommended that he/she accept a roster invitation.
