Regular practice days:
Practice times for ALL ages are determined by individual volunteer coaches. But teams should expect one practice day during the week in addition to their game day. Younger teams (U4-U6) may opt to not practice during the week, and just meet early on game day to have a quick practice session prior to the game.

Player equipment needed:
All players should have a ball, shin guards and appropriate foot wear (soccer cleats). Every player will be provided two jerseys, one pair of black shorts and one pair of black socks. These will be delivered to coaches a few days before opening jamboree, so players may not receive the uniforms until the first game on August 25. Players born in 2011-2015 (Under 4-Under 8) should have a size 3 soccer ball. Players born in 2007-2010 (Under 9-Under 12) should have a size 4 soccer ball, and players born in 2005-2006 (under 13-Under 19) should have a size 5 soccer ball. These can be purchased at any local sporting goods stores.


Player Contact:
Early registration will close on July 24, 2018.  Late registration will run July 25-August 6 with a $25 late fee. After that point, ALL players will be wait-listed.


All players born in the 2010-2015 (Under 4-Under 10) age groups should hear from a coach by August 17, 2018 if not before. Don't be alarmed if your child isn't contacted immediately after registration closes as some groups will hear from coaches before others. Coaches are volunteers and some coaches do take longer to contact teams then others. However, all players should be contacted by a coach by Friday, August 17th at 6:00pm. If you are not contacted by a coach by that time,  please email us at jacksonfc1@aol.com after 6:00pm. Please remember that teams cannot be formed without parent volunteers, so if you didn't sign up to coach during registration, please consider doing so, no experience needed!

All players born in 2005-2008 (Under 12-Under 14) will be contacted by August 27 if not before and will start play until after Labor Day. Please email us if you have not be contacted by 6:00pm on Monday, August 27.

Coaching:
Every team needs a parent(s) to volunteer to coach. We have a weekly email sent out to all volunteer coaches with practice plans for the week. There are plenty of coaching activities on our website as well to guide you. We also have current coaches who will help you learn. There are plenty of opportunities to gain experience and learn coaching activities along with your child. NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY!

If you are new to the program and are interested in coaching, assistant coaching, managing, being an age group coordinator or volunteering in anyway please contact us by email at jacksonfc1@aol.com. Or simply sign up during the registration process. Someone will be in touch with you by as registration comes to a close.  If you did not sign up during the registration process, please email us and we will add you to the coaching/volunteer master list. All coaches and volunteers must undergo a background check. JFC pays all costs associated with this process. The form only takes 5 minutes to complete. 

JFC Work Party:
Please also mark your calendars for Saturday, August 18 beginning at 8:00am. JFC will be having work party. This is the day we need lots of volunteers to help get the fields ready for play after the summer break. If you've never lined a field, there will be plenty of people to help you learn! Not good at lining? There will be plenty of things that can be done other then lining fields. It is also a great source of community service hours for any students who may need them. Please pass this along to everyone you know and help us get geared up for the fall soccer season!

Team formation disclaimer:
On older teams (2005-2006), because of team size limitations, JFC cannot guarantee the player a spot on a team if the team is already full with maximum capacity of players. JFC complies with all applicable rules of the Mississippi Soccer Association regarding the registration and rostering of players.  However, if you register before August 6, there shouldn't be any problems placing your child on a team in these age groups. If denied you will receive a full monetary refund.
