How do I know what division my child will be in?

Registration for our recreation programs is organized by birth year in accordance with U.S. Youth Soccer.  

How to determine your age group:

Birth year registration is determined by the year a soccer season ends. For seasons that span from fall to spring or summer overlapping across two calendar years, players will register based on their age during the second year of the season. To simplify, an age group can be determined by subtracting the birth year from the year the season ends.

Year Season Ends – Birth Year = Age Group

2019 to 2020 – 2005 = U-15

Check out the Birth Year and Season Matrix below:

Are uniforms included with my registration fee?

Rising Stars Divisions:

Uniforms are a part of our registration fee. This covers a full uniform kit for your child. The kit will include 2 jersey tops (1 Home and 1 Away style jersey), one pair of shorts, and one pair of long soccer socks. 

*However, if you are able to register with us after our regular registration window has closed you will not be guaranteed a uniform kit. This is due in part to ordering the sizes registrants enter during the registration process and having them arrive prior to our matches starting. We do order a few extra uniform kits to help with this, but it does not guarantee there will be enough to cover everyone.

If you are late registering and cannot be provided a uniform kit, please contact us so that we can work with you on finding a solution.


Kick'n Kids Division:

Your child will receive a t-shirt for this division that is covered by the registration fee. Shorts and socks will not be provided for this age group. If you are late registering you may not receive your child's t-shirt until the divisions second meeting.

What is PSA's protocol when it's Thunder & Lightning?

PSA's Lightning Safety Protocol

After reviewing information from the National Lightning Safety Institute, the NCYSA has adopted the new protocol for lightning safety which will go into effect immediately (October 15, 2014). No more counting to determine whether to halt play. The new protocol goes like this:

If you see lightning, clear the field.
If you hear thunder, clear the field.
Play will be halted for a minimum of 30 minutes.

If no lightning is spotted during the 30 minutes and/or no thunder is heard during the 30 minutes, the play will resume. If lightning is seen and/or thunder is heard during the 30 minute period, the clock starts over. No play will resume until a minimum of 30 minutes passes with no thunder and/or no lightning. The North Carolina Soccer Referee Association is in full support of this new NCYSA protocol. ALL NCSRA referees are being notified of this new protocol and are being instructed to impose the new protocol effective immediately. Thunder and lightning are extremely unpredictable. The threat is too dangerous and it just isn’t worth taking the chance.

Remember, IF YOU SEE LIGHTNING, CLEAR THE FIELD. IF YOU HEAR THUNDER, CLEAR THE FIELD.

Thank you for understanding and supporting our continuing efforts to provide a safe environment for all PSA participants. 

What happens if a practice gets canceled?

If practices get canceled due to bad weather or fields being closed, the following is how our rescheduling works:

Monday Team Practices - move to Wednesday of the same week. 
Tuesday Team Practices - move to Thursday of the same week.
 
Everything as far as practice time, practice field, etc. will stay the same. Please know that ultimately the reschedule date is dependant on whether your coach can be there or not as well. Coaches will reach out to their teams with more defined details pertaining to their rescheduled practice.
