Fall Recreation Information

Introduction

Welcome to Fusion Soccer Club. The Recreation Program is the foundation of Fusion Soccer Club. The program is designed to give each player the chance to play for the love of the game without the emphasis of high level competition and time commitment. The purpose of the Recreation Program is to provide an opportunity for the participant to have fun, learn the sport and develop life skills including a life long love of the game. The Recreation program runs only in the Fall season which starts in August and ends in November. Teams are coached by a volunteer parent head coach who is required to attend various Fusion Soccer Club coaching  seminars, that provide them with insight and confidence to coach young soccer players.

Recreation has teams from U5 > U12 (2018-2011)

We have Regional Play for U13 > U19 (2010-2004) NEW THIS YEAR for U13/14!

The program is offered to all boys and girls, there is no limit to the amount of teams in the program. Recreational age groups are birth year pure from U5 thru U10 then combine U11/U12. Traveling Regional League age groups are combined as U14, U16 & U18/U19, depending on their birth year and available age groups in their division.

U5-U12 teams will play in a house league created by Livermore Fusion Soccer Club and will be registered under CYSA (Cal North). All U13-U19 Rec players will participate in Regional Play under US Club Soccer in the NorCal Premier Super Rec division. Teams will play 8-10 games against other clubs in the local Bay Area (ie: Pleasanton, Danville, San Ramon, Dublin etc.). Approximately half of the games will be played in Livermore, the other half are played in the opponent's city.

Practice schedules for teams in all age groups are determined by the parent volunteer coach (day, time & location), however a minimum of 1 practice per week is expected. All practices are to be held within the city limits, with typical work-day hours in mind when determining the start time. Depending upon the age group of the team, the length of each practice session typically lasts between 45-90 minutes, with younger players being the shortest.

TEAM FORMATION INFO

Team formation begins in July, immediately following the close of registration. Players should expect to hear from a coach regarding their team placement as early as the last week in July and no later than the end of the first week of August. Practices may begin as early as August 1st.

All players in the Fall Recreational Program are separated by gender then divided into age groups based on their birth year. For example: In the 2022 season, if your player was born on any date between January 1, 2018 and December 31, 2018, they are considered to be in the U5 age group. (U = Under)

Players are then sorted automatically by our online system, based on the school location listed in their registration, and placed on teams with coaches volunteering from within those same areas. Depending upon registration numbers from each school location, pairing players from multiple schools within the same area of town may be necessary to fill teams. 

This is the same procedure that has placed players with friends and familiar coaches in the past and will most likely mean that you would end up on a team with familiar faces moving forward. With nearly 2,000 players in the Recreational program, we are unable to commit to honoring requests.

Refund Policy

Fall Recreational Program

We understand that circumstances may change between registration in the Spring and the start of the soccer season in the Fall.  Cancelations, relocation, injuries, change in schedule or interests are some examples. There are administrative costs that the organization incurs with registration and planning for the season (administrative, staff, insurance, equipment, etc.). Therefore, the refund amount is reduced the longer you wait to cancel your registration and apply for a refund.

This information is as follows:

  • Requests submitted thru May 31, 2022 = Full Refund, minus $25 admin fee
  • Requests submitted between June 1, 2022 through June 30, 2022 = 70% refund
  • Requests submitted between July 1, 2022 through July 14, 2022 = 50% refund
  • Requests submitted as of July 15, 2022 = No refund unless the program is cancelled.

If the program is cancelled, and never started, a full refund will be given minus a $25 admin fee (per player). 

If the program begins, and is cancelled at any time during the season, a prorated refund will be given based on the amount of time the program was active.

Why an admin fee? Staff members must be paid to prepare for the running of the programs throughout the year. In addition, league and insurance fees are paid for each player upon completion of their registration to participate in the program. The admin fee is to cover these costs and ensure no debt is created.

PLAYER BEHAVIOR

PLAYER BEHAVIOR ON THE FIELD - If a player, usually younger ones, are not fully participating with the team, seem distracted and unwilling to play, cries often or hits others, there might be something going on that the parent needs to be aware of and address. The club supports its coaches and their great volunteerism to coach the players. The coaches have a responsibility to coach the players. While they can help with small issues off the field of play, it is expected that parents will address issues of basic commitment and behavior directly with their child. If the coach can help, please offer suggestions. Everyone's goal is a positive and fun time for everyone!
