Bring a Friend Program

The Cutters Soccer Club is excited to announce our “Bring a Friend” Program for the Fall 2017 Community Soccer season. We feel that in Bloomington, soccer is an important part of its identity. We love seeing the game grow in and around the Bloomington area. This program  will allow both the participant and a friend to receive 20% off for the Fall 2017 season.

 

Notes:

 

  • In order to take advantage of this offer, please answer all questions in registration related to this program. You will pay the regular price up front, and then Cutters will provide a refund prior to the conclusion of the season.

 

  • The family being referred must not have previously participated with Cutters to be considered eligible.

 

  • Travel players may refer someone into the Community program, however, the 20% off would be based on the Community rates for their age group. So a travel player would not receive 20% off of the travel fee.

 

  • A family may refer more than one player to take part in this offer, but the 20% off will only be applied to the referring family one time (unless they have multiple children participating).

 

  • If you refer someone after you have already registered, please contact the Cutters office. You will still be eligible to be a part of this program.

 

We hope you take the opportunity to bring someone new into the Cutters family and that they will enjoy the game as much as we do.

Spring ’17 Cutters Community Coaches Soccer Information

Coaches,

 

We are excited for the Spring 2017 season. Below are some of the initiatives that we are incorporating this season.

 

Coaches Initiatives 2017:

 

  • Providing each coach with a ‘coaches packet’. This packet will include, but not limited to: the rules, a substitution sheet, basic soccer practice plans, a clipboard, concussion protocol, etc.

 

  • There will be a Community Soccer Coaches Clinic for all coaches. This will be different than it has been in years past. The two coaches clinics will take place on March 27th (U6/U8) and March 28th (U10 and Up) from 7-8:30pm at BUGS. There will be a short welcome from 7-7:15pm with the rest of the clinic being ‘on-field’ for skill building and running a practice. Please save those dates as you will be receiving your coaches packet that day.

 

  • We want to send a ‘thank you’ for being a part of the program. If you coach this season (Spring 2017), and volunteer again to coach in the fall, the club is offering a 25% discount off of registration for the Fall 2017 season. We appreciate your service and time.

 

  • Lastly, United States Soccer Federation (USSF) offers the “F” license online. The course takes about three hours and will provide you with a lot of great information about coaching soccer. The cost is $25. The club will reimburse the $25 after you take the course. We highly encourage each coach to take the course. Here is the link for more information: http://www.ussoccer.com/coaching-education/licenses/national-f

 

Additionally, we are looking for new coaches to be a part of the program and join our community of coaches. Encourage new coaches to join our coaches community. Also, for any coach who has had success with encouraging players, activities, strategies, contacting parents, etc. that they think would be a great tool for all coaches, please let me know. I would like to add ‘testimonials’ or cheat sheets to the coaches packet. As an educator, there are always ways that others can enhance our coaching and learning. This will only improve our coaching community!

 

For additional information, please email Matt Blaszka.

 

 

Yours in Soccer,

Winter Travel Indoor League: 11U-14U Rosters/Schedule

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.

Thank you for your interest in Cutters Soccer travel program. Please note the following:

  • On the day of the event, participants must check in at their birth year age group desk to pick up their identification number.
  • It is highly recommended that players attend both days of player placement for thorough evaluation.
  • All candidates must retain and wear their ID number for BOTH days of player placement.
  • All high school age players (15U-19U) will be considered members of their high school soccer team for the purpose of complying with the IHSAA “six player rule” unless otherwise noted in writing or on their pre-registration.
  • The Head Coach of the age group will conduct Player Placement and additional Cutters staff coaches will assist with the evaluations. Players will be evaluated on their technical, tactical, physical and psychological soccer abilities

Cutters Soccer Club will make every attempt to find a team for every candidate. However, this is not always possible due to roster limitations and the IHSAA 6 player rule.

Notification Process: Candidates will be contacted via email (or phone) no later than Sunday, June 19. Please be prepared to make a decision to accept or decline upon notification as it may affect other players.Player notification times may be staggered to allow for adjustments to teams as responses are collected. If notification has not occurred by midnight on Monday, June 20, please contact the Director of Coaching, Tommy Berry, at busoccer@gmail.com with copy to admin@cutterssoccer.org or 812-333-8010. Please use the following SUBJECT line: No Placement Notification: Your Name.

Team Commitment: All invited players will have 48 hours to accept or decline their roster invitation. To accept the roster invitation players must register through their Got Soccer account by making payment or applying for a scholarship online. An email of acceptance to their coach is also required. If these two requirements are not met within the 48-hour time period, the invitation may be withdrawn and distributed to another player. All 9U-14U players who accept roster invitations are committing to participate on a Cutters Soccer team for one year (the fall 2016 season and the spring 2017 season). All 15U-19U players accepting roster invitations are committing to participate on a Cutters Soccer team for the spring 2017 season. However, practices and games may begin as early as November 2016;

  • The club has the right to hold the player to this one-year commitment upon the signing of a registration form or the payment of the fee or portion thereof.
  • A supplemental tryout may be held again at the conclusion of the high school soccer season in October for 15U-19U teams that still have roster spots available.

 

Overall Cost: The basic cost breakdown is that Club Tuition fees go toward expenses of all teams in the clubs- field rentals, referees, administration, etc.  Team fees are paid to your team only and go toward activities specific to your team.

1) 2016/2017 Club Tuition TBA

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. If a player resigns due to medical reasons that prevent play or a move out of state, then club fees will be refunded on a prorated basis minus a $50 fee. A written request to the Executive Director is required to request any refund.As you evaluate whether this Program is right for your child, and your family, please keep the following objectives of the Cutters Soccer Club in mind: To enable our players to have fun playing competitive soccer in a safe environment while building lifelong passion for the sport.

  • To provide continuity by requiring each player to fulfill their commitment to the team.
  • To increase the exposure of our oldest competitive soccer players to post youth soccer programs and college coaches.
  • To have a non-profit club soccer program that is financially self-sustaining.

5th Annual Soccer Golf Challenge

Golf Outing 2013

Our 5th Annual Soccer Golf Challenge will take place on Saturday, August 13th at the Taylor Par 3 Course in Bloomington from 11am – 3:30pm. For those new to this concept, we will actually be playing with soccer balls on the course. Each participant in the event will be expected to do a certain amount of fundraising using an online platform, similar to what you might see when someone is running in a marathon. The money raised will support both our Scholarship and Outreach Programs. These programs allow hundreds of children in our community the opportunity to play soccer.

This year we really want to encourage as many players as possible to participate. It’s really fun and the kids will have a blast. Each player can either fundraise on their own or in a group of 4-5. There will also be coaches, board members, and other parents participating. The online platform for fundraising is all ready to go so you can visit the link below to get signed up. We will officially begin fundraising in July, but feel free to start on your own. Please let me know if you have any questions.
