PCJSL Winter/Spring Season – Registration is open!

PCJSL Winter/Spring Season – Registration is open!

Dear PCJSL Soccer Clubs, Coaches, Parents and Players,

The Winter/Spring 2018 soccer season is just around the corner and we are excited to continue moving forward with changes to improve your soccer experience as we move into the second half of the 2017-18 season!

REGISTRATION IS CURRENTLY OPEN!

www.gotsport.com/forms/app/?eventid=63983

Please see the important dates below, listed in two sections based on the age of the players involved. It is extremely important that we adhere to this schedule in order to allow appropriate time for the scheduling process, so please understand that we won’t be able to make any exceptions to these dates.

For both flighting and scheduling feedback, we developed a Google Form that must be filled out completely and submitted before we can consider your input. Emails, text messages and voice mails will not be utilized to make adjustments to the flighting or the draft schedule. Please help us do a better job giving you what you want by using these forms to provide us with the information we need. Links to both forms will be provided in future emails regarding flighting and the draft schedule, and will also be posted at PCJSL.COM.

All U9 and U10 teams should note that you will be placed in divisions for the winter/spring based on the games you played in Fall 2017, but all winter/spring games will be scheduled at the beginning of the season and we will not be using the Play Block format that created two separate sets of games – there will be no re-flighting in the middle of the Winter/Spring event .

WINTER/SPRING 2017 Play Dates

It is PCJSL’s desire to schedule four games for teams during the winter/spring of 2018 – Due to resource issues (referees and fields), the league has decided not to schedule games on any tournament weekends (Shoot-out – Jan 12-14; Jacobs – Feb 9-11; CDO – Apr 6-8). Games will also NOT be scheduled on Rodeo weekend. Because games are not being scheduled on three tournament weekends in Tucson, only one black-out date will be allowed.

When possible, fields and referees will be made available for teams that choose to use any of the dates above for any needed make-up games. In addition, after your team has completed its four scheduled games, if you have indicated your desire to play more than four games by checking the box on the registration application, your team will be matched with other age-appropriate teams and allowed to schedule friendlies/scrimmages on Saturdays where fields and referees are available.

The change from six scheduled games to four scheduled games is only being made this winter/spring session due to a lack of resources (fields and referees) and we are hoping that things will be back “to normal” next fall.

U9 – U14 Play Dates
* Allowed one Saturday blackout date
* Jan 20, Jan 27, Feb 3, Feb 17, Mar 10, Mar 17, Mar 24, Mar 31

U15 – U19 Play Dates
* Allowed one Saturday blackout date
* Mar 10, Mar 17, Mar 24, Mar 31, Apr 14, Apr 21, Apr 28, May 5,

We look forward to a great second half of the season!

Sincerely,
Jeff Welliver
PCJSL VP of Competition
