What age group should my child be playing this season?

Can my child play in an older age group?

To facilitate player development and provide a positive experience, we highly recommend your child play within their true age group based on their birth year.   However, we understand there may be instances where a child's maturity, athleticism, and soccer technical skills support playing with and against older players, in longer games and training sessions, and on bigger fields.    If you believe your child would benefit from playing in an older age group, please contact us.  While we are considering your request, please register your child in the age group associated with their birth year AND complete the PlayUP waiver during the registration process.

What will my child need for uniforms and equipment?

Except for 4U Little Kicks participants, all players are required to purchase Johnston Urbandale Soccer Club approved uniforms to wear during games.  4U Little Kicks participants will be provided a JUSC shirt to wear during the sessions.  More details on what uniforms are required (including how to order) for your child's age group, and other needed and allowable equipment are available on the Uniform & Equipment page. 

When will I learn what time my child's team trains?

Training sessions for 7U-8U Discovery, and 9U-19U recreational teams will be scheduled by your child's team's coach.  Generally, training sessions will begin two weeks prior to your child's first weekend of games.  We encourage coaches to let parents know days and times for training as soon as possible.  They are also encouraged to find times that work for the player's families.

When are my child's game schedules typically available?

Game schedules are generally published one to two weeks before the first weekend of games. 

Where can I find my child's game schedule?
