We are excited to get the Winter Indoor League started on Saturday, December 3rd for the 11U/12U and 13U/14U groups. Our staff spent a lot of time trying to organize as competitively balanced of teams as we possibly could, while also trying to honor teammate requests. We hope the kids are looking forward to this opportunity. It’s a great time for the kids to just play, meet new teammates, and have fun. This league has been great for our club culture since we started it about 5 years ago. I am posting links below for the full season schedule and the rosters for each group. We do not anticipate making any changes at this point, though there is the potential to add a few extra players to each league.
As of now all rosters have no more than 7 players. This is great in terms of playing time, but also makes it important that everyone attends as much as possible. Please contact Tommy Berry or Michael Nosofsky with as much notice as you can when your child will be missing a game. Additionally, be sure to note the game times. We are not leaving very much room in between games so please get there on time so that we can transition from one game to the next seamlessly. We will be handing out shirts the first day so try to arrive a little bit earlier so we can take care of that prior to the game starting. Thanks so much. We look forward to seeing you all on Saturday.

2) Team Fees: These vary by team, depending on team expenses for the activities that your team chooses to participate in. These expenses can include team tournaments, indoor rentals and other activities that apply to your team only. The team fees vary, depending on the age and the number of tournaments, but generally range from $100 to $200, but can be higher for a team that participates in several tournaments. The best way to determine this cost is to speak with the team managers for your age group and ask them what they anticipate for the coming year.
3) Uniforms: New uniforms will not be required for 2016/17.
Refund Policy: If a player resigns from the club, he/she will be responsible for all club fees and charges payable to the date of registration.

The team will participate in the Indiana Soccer League (ISL) and will be coached by Carl Salzmann (Edgewood High School Varsity Coach). Training will begin once per week in November through the winter. Outdoor training and the competition portion of the season will begin in late March 2016 and end approximately in early June, 2016.

Cutters is excited to be participating in our very first, “Make Your Own Ball Day” on Monday, September 21. We are looking forward to having all of our U8 Community and Jr. Cutter Travel players involved in such a great event. Please see event information below:
The mission of Make Your Own Ball Day is to use a ball to help kids create, connect, give, appreciate, and play. MYOBD promotes and supports the passions of kids for sport and uses soccer as a platform for change. We envision a world where every kid—regardless of living conditions—has the tools and power to play.
“Our goal in MYOBD is to teach not only the love of the game and the skills and fundamentals needed to play it, but also bigger life lessons like character, leadership and service. This day was created to get us to stop for a second and think about how lucky we are and to make us realize that the world does not revolve around us.” Mark Spiegel (Make Your Own Ball Day founder)
Make Your Own Ball Day.
The day will revolve around the homemade soccer balls made by each of our players. We will still play soccer but we will see the game from a new, unique and humbling perspective. We will go barefoot and play with the imperfect and misshapen soccer balls that we create.
The day originates out of a desire to show our players how lucky we are to have the things we have as well as to broaden their understanding of the game and themselves. The day is more than just fun and craziness. The day is put on for us to take a second and recognized how fortunate we are and how important it is to help/serve others. A ball can change lives and it can open a conversation about hardship, perspective and gratitude! (www.makeyourownballday.com )
Make A Ball.
There are a million ways to make a ball. You can use any material you want and make it as big or as small as you want. Make your ball prior to showing up to the event! The coaches will be making their own and we will try to have extras but PLEASE take this unique opportunity to make a ball with your player and talk about why we are doing this! It is our hope that players will show up to the event with their ball already made! (watching the videos first will help with this process)
Give A Ball.
We want this day to impact not only our players and families, but to reach out into our community and beyond to help where we can! So we are also inviting you to donate a new or lightly used soccer ball. We will work with the MYOBD crew to make sure this donated ball finds its way to the foot of a kid in a community where money, circumstances and life has not allowed him/her to have one before. As a club we are hoping to donate as many soccer balls as possible and join in this movement by giving to our global soccer community. So…Make a ball // Give a ball.
Check out these videos and please share them with your players.
