Intramural FAQ

What do my registration fees cover?
o   Registration fees provide your child with a team and complete uniform (shirt, shorts and socks).

Do I have to live in Perkiomen Valley School District to play?
o   No.  We have players from the surrounding area in our league as well.

How do I become a coach or volunteer?
o   You can sign up for whatever volunteer position (coach, assistant coach, field help, etc) when registering your child.  We are an all volunteer organization and are always looking for volunteer help. If you do not have a child registered but would like to volunteer, please email info@perkvalleysoccer.org.

When does the season start?
o   The fall season starts in mid-September.
o   The spring season starts in early April.

Level of commitment?
o   For Pee Wee players the commitment is Sunday afternoons for 75 minutes.  Youth players would be one hour Sunday afternoons as well as about an hour during the week for practices. 

How many kids on a team?
o   The number of kids on a team depends on how many kids sign up for that age group.  Typically Pee Wee teams are capped around 12 or 13 players and Youth teams are usually consist of 9 to 11 players.

What is the team format?
o   The Youth teams typically play 6 x 6 that is 5 plus the goalie on the field.
o   The Pee Wee teams have a 30 minute practice, followed by 15 minute snack and then a 30 minute game with the team on the next field. Pee Wee teams are usually split in half for the game.

How much does it cost?
o   Regular registration is $100 per child. Early bird registration is discounted $10 per child. Late registration costs an additional $20.

Where are practices held?
o   Practices are held at various field locations and are determined by the coaches of each team.  Possible sites include PV Middle School West, Palmer Park, Waterworks Park, Skippack Elementary and Limerick Community Park (aka Manderach Park)

Do pee wees practice?
o   Pee Wees practice directly before their games on Sundays as part of their 75 minute session.

Is everyone guaranteed a team?
o   Yes, as long as you sign up during regular registration.  If you sign up during late registration we try our best to get everyone on a team but it all depends on the numbers.

How are the teams picked?
o   Teams are picked based on where players live and where they go to school.  Youth teams practice during the week so we try to group players based on area so it is easier to organize a practice site.

Can I request that my child be on a specific team or with a specific coach?
o   If you want your child on a specific team or with another child, please make a note of it in the comment section. We try to honor teammate or coach requests whenever possible, however they must be made during regular registration.  Once regular registration has closed and we have started the team making process, we cannot always accommodate special requests.

How old do you have to be to play?
o   Our Pee Wee league starts at 3 years old.  As long as your child will turn 3 before the end of the season they are eligible to play.

Are there tryouts?
o   There are no tryouts for intramural teams, once registered everyone is on a team.  If your child wishes to play in a more competitive environment check out our Travel page.

When is registration open?
o   We have two registration periods, one for the fall and one for the spring. The exact dates will be listed on our website once they are determined.

How do I register?
o   First you will need to create an account with us.  If you already have one all you need to do is click the register button at the top of the page and the system will walk you through it.

What are the divisions?
o   We don’t have set divisions as other leagues do. We separate our players based on gender, age, location and practice availability but the exact divisions are made once registration has ended.  Historically our "divisions" are 5-6 yr olds, 7-8 yr olds and 8-10 yr olds with 9 years old and up playing in the SCSL.

What equipment is needed?
o   The only required equipment is appropriately sized shin guards.  Non-metal cleats and an appropriately sized ball are recommended but NOT required.

If I choose to purchase a ball for my child, what size should I get?
o   PeeWees and 5-6 year olds play with a size 3 ball, 7-8 year olds should also be using a size 3, however a size 4 is permitted and is appropriate for larger players, 9-10 year olds play with a size 4.

What if I don’t have coaching experience but want to help/coach?
o   We welcome any and all volunteers, experienced and non-experienced.  We run coaches clinics as well as have manuals posted on our website that can be used for guidance. 

What if I have other questions?
o   Any questions that you need answers to please email info@perkvalleysoccer.org and someone will be glad to answer them for you.
