When and how will I find out which team my player is on?

We will announce team rosters via email in Early August. All players registered by July 24th will be placed on a team. Players registered after this date will be placed on a team as roster sizes allow. If you notify us within 48 hours of the roster announcement that you have decided not to play in the fall, Blackhawks will issue a refund. 

When do teams practice and play games in the fall...

Teams will typically practice 2 times per week at Orchard Rec. Center. Practices will run between 60-75 minutes and may begin as early as 5:05pm depending on daylight. We plan to hold 2014/2015 Girls groups on Tuesday and Thursday Nights and 2014/2015 Boys groups on Monday and Wednesday night. We may have some Boys teams move to a T/TH schedule based on field space availability.

Game will take place on the weekends, typically Saturdays and/or Sundays. We will recieve our game schedule from the league in August.  Each team will place 6 league games, 3 home and 3 away. The home games will take place at Orchard and the away games will take place in the greater metro area.

Can my player play up an age level?

We allow U8s to play up at the U9 level, as this is the earliest age that Blackhawks offer traveling soccer. All developmental players (U9–U10) are expected to register and attend their age appropriate evaluations. In some cases, it may be appropriate for a player to play-up an age group. Please contact Chris with questions.

What additional items will the club collect after my player has been assigned to a team?

After team formation, team managers will collect a player photo for US Club player passes, a medical liability waiver form and birth certificate (proof of age), 

How can I volunteer?

Volunteers drive the continued success of our Developmental Program. Being a team manager is the most common volunteer position. 

What TCSL level will my player participate?

At each age group, we will place our players and teams in the appropriate TCSL level based on our assessment scores and coaches’ evaluations. We challenge our more developed players at the Red and White levels, while the majority of developmental teams in our club (and in our state) participate at the Blue level. We do our best to make multiple even-strength teams at the Blue level.

What should my player bring to practice?

Players need soccer cleats and indoor shoes, soccer ball (size 4), water bottle, shin guards, and great sportsmanship.

Do teams play in tournaments?

U9 and U10 Summer Teams will participate in the Capital Classic and the Blackhawks Summer Festival. Fall teams typically do not particpate in tournaments, but each team decides individually if they will participate in an additional tournament.

What happens after Evaluations?

To be placed on a Blackhawks team for the season, players need to register. We will email team notifications to the address provided in your Blackhawks Playmetrics account.
