Program Information Updates - Competitive and Community 

Under 5 Community Program:

The Under 5 community programs will take place as follows.  Bloomfield will be running an Under 5 dedicated soccer program (as well as their under 7 program) while all of the remaining communities will be running an Active Start program for the Under 5 age group.  Only the players who are playing out of Bloomfield need to register with the Club for Under 5. 

Under 7 Community Program:

For the Under 7 age group - teams will be created where possible within each of the communities (Tignish, Alberton, Bloomfield, O'Leary, Ellerslie & Evangeline).  These teams will not be playing a weekly game like the older ages will be but the plan is to have them come together 2-3 times over the course of the summer for some local jamboree's to get some games played at that time.   Therefore, all Under 7 aged players will register thru the West Prince Storm soccer club and in the registration process you will see a question asking which community you are playing out of - please select that community and we will forward all names onward, help in team selection, coach selection, etc...  The Under 7 program will still be a co-ed program.

*** A couple of parents emailed and said when the registrations opened up that Bloomfield didn’t show up as an option so they registered for another community and then emailed us to have them manually changed.  If any others had that happen to them please feel free to email allainbrian@hotmail.com and I can get that fixed up for you.

Under 9 and Under 11 Community Programs:

The plan is to try and create both female and male teams within each community (Tignish, Alberton, O'Leary, Ellerslie & Evangeline - Bloomfield is only Under 5 & Under 7) at the Under 9 and Under 11 ages.  In the end numbers may dictate that they be co-ed however that is the goal.  These teams would practice in their community on a weekly basis and would come to Hernewood one night a week to play their weekly game in the summertime.  The club will be helping to develop a coaching program for the local coaches for Under 7, 9 and 11 and by having the games at Hernewood for the Under 9 and 11 ages we can help with referee's, standard playing sizes for fields/nets, etc..

Under 9 and Under 11 Competitive Program:

The first structured league that PEI Soccer organizes is for the Under 11 age.  We do allow Under 9 aged players to tryout for these teams as this is the first organized league that they can potentially be a part of.  As the Club/community collaboration was not finalized before we started tryouts, we created a “competitive vs. community” registration link on our website.  There were a few under 9’s who registered for competitive and once hearing that the communities were joining with us have since switched to the community program instead. 

The U9 and U11 boys will be out on Monday this week and the U9 and U11 girls will be out on Monday and Thursday this week (see schedule above)

As a club, we would ask the following from all parents who have registered their child for the Under 9 and Under 11 competitive programs - could you please send an email to allainbrian@hotmail.com between now and Monday at 5 pm and just confirm that your child does in fact want to tryout for an under 11 team.  For anyone who does not make an under 11 team, the community program will be an option for you and we can manually adjust the registration package that you entered but we really need to know exactly how many players we have trying out.  For instance, I had 3-4 under 9 boys parents email me today to let me know that their child would like to remain on that list - I need the same thing to happen for every u9 and u11 boy and girl who has registered for the competitive stream

Under 13 Girls team:

The Under 13 girls will be back out on Thursday, May 2nd from 6:30 to 7:30 pm.  Players should bring both sneakers in case we are indoors and their cleats/warm clothing in case it is not too bad of an evening and we can get outside.  We should have one team for the summer.

Under 13 Boys team (s):

The club will have one team again operating out of the Evangeline area.  There are only a few boys registered from the West Prince area so it is not looking good for two teams this year for the club and it may only be the team out of Evangeline.  For the few boys who have registered in West Prince, you will be able to tryout for the team playing out of Evangeline if you wish to do so.  As soon as they can line up a date to get outside for a session we will post on our website.

Under 15 and Under 18 Girls:

As we mentioned to all of the girls who were at the session this past Thursday, our numbers are are in a bit of a tough spot overall.  We currently do not have enough players registered for u15 for a team on their own and we have way too many for one team at u18 which means we would have to turn a bunch of girls away.  The best plan of action that we can come up with at the moment would be to move the u15 players up to u18 and create two under 18 teams - one premier and one first division.  The skill level at u18 first would be very similar to the u15 premier division that we had hoped to put the girls in this summer and from watching the girls easily compete against each other in the gym this past week, there is no doubt in our minds that they can easily play at this level as we do feel we would have one of the strongest group of u18's across the Island.  For now, that will be the plan unless something drastically changes with the numbers that we have.  We don’t have a date decided yet for this week as we are trying to get a decent weather evening so we can get outside.  We will update the website again on Monday night

Under 15 and Under 18 Boys:

Our registered numbers have been a struggle for both Under 15 and Under 18 with only about a half dozen players at each level registered.  We really need everyone to help spread the word and try to get more boys registered as we would love to see a team remain in the club, especially with the boys having won gold last year at the Under 18 boys first division level.  We will try and line up a night next week that we can get outside as well if the weather cooperates and hopefully the numbers will increase a little bit between now and then as there are a lot of great players out there.

Senior Men and Women:

The numbers are looking very good to have a Senior men’s team as well as two Senior women’s teams.  If you are interested in playing and have not been in touch with the team contacts please feel free to email Brian at allainbrian@hotmail.com and player information can be passed along to see if there is any room left on the respective team.
