Spring Select FAQs for Parents

What is the Spring Select season and what is the process for selection for U8-U19

For each division, there will be a select number of teams allowed to compete.  The Board of Directors will vote on the quantity of teams in each division as well as the coach(es).  The coaches are responsible for creating their own teams

Who is eligible to participate in this season?

Option 1) Spring select through the region. This is available for players on U8 and above who have been selected to play by a coach. The cost is $80 for players who played in Fall 2021 and $100 for new players.   These players will need to register in our system like they did in the Fall. You will be placed on the waitlist then moved over when the roster is turned in by the coach. You will then receive an email to pay. If your child hasn’t been contacted by a coach and you want them to play Spring Select you can register them on the waitlist this way and if a coach needs a player they will choose from the waitlist. There is no guarantee that your player will be placed on a team.

Option 2) Spring Academy ran by First Touch Coaching. This will consist of 1 practice and 1 game. Registration will be
This is open for any player ages 4-12 and no experience is necessary so it’s great for those starting out.

Spring Select FAQ's for Coaches

What are the rules for recruiting players?

Ask the current Fall coach if they are planning on taking their team or some of their players for the Spring season.

I’ve created my team.  Now what?

You’ll need to have your three certified referees, a team parent, and field volunteers.


Spring 2021 permits allow for practices on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday.

Are uniforms provided as part of the registration fee?

No.  To keep the registration fee as low as possible the teams are responsible for their uniforms.  However, uniforms can be ordered through the region to help provide a discounted rate for the teams.  You may use SCORE for your uniform selections for the Spring Season.  Lowest price for full uniforms (Jersey, shorts, socks) is $14.95 (Costa Rica #235) and can go up depending on uniform style you choose.  Please visit for more styles and colors to choose from.

Uniform Order spreadsheet

If your team is using the fall season’s uniform and only need to order a few sets, please contact Mary Kamhi: [email protected]

You must email me back the order form, I will then give you the exact amount of price for your team.  You must then before I order the uniforms pay in full.  Include taxes, shipping and handling (unless you want to go to Wilmington to pick up yourself no S/H).  Uniforms can be mailed directly to your home.

If you go to an outside vendor, they must put all the proper logos on the uniforms/T-shirts.  Remember NO player names on uniforms.

Please contact your Division Director for more information.

My team is registered.  Now what?

Practices - Spring 2021 permits allow for practices on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday.

Your Division Director will also inform you when your game schedule is ready or you can go to and find out if your schedule has been posted.  Games usually begin in the beginning of March.  You’ll also need your roster to be signed-off by the Regional Commissioner. 

Must we have ID cards for the Select season?

Yes.  All coaches and players, except the 8U division, must have an ID card at all games.

Who’s responsible for the referees?

The home team is responsible for providing the center referee duties for the Spring Select season for the competitive games.  All teams still must provide referees to cover Assistant Referee duties and some Center Referee duties for the non-competitive games (8U Division)

Who’s responsible for Field Duty?

Just as the Fall (regular) season, your team will be responsible for field setup if you are scheduled for the first game of the day on your assigned field.  You’ll need two representatives to meet at the Lexington Lock-up area on the Friday before your game at 5pm.  They’ll be chalking the field lines and setting up the goals and nets.  On game day, they’ll also need to setup the flags before the game. 

Field takedown will be the responsibility of the team with the last game of the day on your assigned field.  They’ll be responsible for putting away the goals, nets, and flags.  


The home team will provide the center referee, but volunteer referees must be provided by each team to cover the AR (sideline) duties. 

What else do I need to know?

It’s likely that the league, Area 11E, will call a mandatory meeting.  Last year, the agenda comprised of the conduct of players/coaches/parents, PSC and Extra program, new rules, Referee Responsibility and safety items.

Once you have your game schedule, you’ll need to download the Line-up Card form template from the website.  They will need to be printed out on cardstock paper.
