Commonly Asked Questions & Answers

 

Does the $60 registration fee include uniform? No, uniforms are to be purchased separately for $45.
What does the $45 uniform fee cover? Uniform purchase price includes two tops (one white and one blue), shorts and socks. Uniforms are changing going forward from the reversible top to two separate tops. We are changing our vendor for better reliability. We are also reducing the bulkiness of the reversible and are attempting to lower the overall cost of soccer for our families. As the uniform colors are not changing, any EPYSA jersey regardless of style is acceptable to wear!
Can we register after registration is closed? No, there will be NO late registrations accepted.
When are registration fees and/or uniform fees due? Registrations fees are due by the last day of open registration. Your child will not be placed on a team if the registration fees are not paid. Uniform fees are also due by the last day of open registration, if uniform fees have not been paid, then uniforms will not be distributed.
How can I pay for registration and/or uniform? Registration and uniforms fees can be paid online with credit card or by check mailed to:

 

P.O. Box 674

Strasburg, CO 80136

 

Cash will also be accepted if you make arrangements to meet a board member prior to the end of registration. You can arrange to meet with a board member via email at admin@epysacolorado.org

How do I register my child? You can register your child online at the website www.epysacolorado.org or paper registration is available at the Bennett Recreation Center (leave completed forms and checks at the Rec Center).
When will we get uniforms? Uniforms will be handed out at the Parent’s meeting, prior to the start of practices.
Are shin guards and cleats required? Shin guards are required for athletes in all age groups U6-U14. Cleats are encouraged but not required for the U6 athletes. Cleats are required for athletes U9-U14. No spikes on cleats!
When will I find out who my child’s coach is and when practices are? You will find out your child’s assigned coach and practice days at least one week prior to the start of the season. Coaches are randomly assigned.  Requests for specific coaches and non-sibling same team placements will NOT be honored. You will have the opportunity to meet your child’s coach (or a board member) at the parent’s meeting prior to the start of practices, in order to answer any questions that you may have.
How long is the season? A typical season is 8-9 weeks, from start of practices through the last game. A timeline of the season is posted on the official website along with on the EPYSA Facebook page.
What is the plan for canceling games? How are makeup games going to be rescheduled? The EPYSA board will decide by 8pm the night prior to a game if it is to be cancelled. Once a decision is made coaches will be informed; the coaches will then contact parents. A cancellation notice will also be posted on the EPYSA Facebook page by 8:15pm. All cancellation decisions will be final. A makeup game schedule will be handed out to parents prior to the start of the season. The makeup game schedule can also be found on the official website and the EPYSA Facebook page. No makeup games will be played outside of the scheduled ones.
What are the age groups for players? Age to play is determined by athlete’s age on last day of registration. A parent can choose to have their child play up into the next age group, with the exception of the U14 age group. Age groups are as follows:

U6 (age 3-5)

U9 (age 6-8)

U12 (age 9-11)

U14 (age 12-14(not in High School))

***These are the ideal age divisions, however age divisions are subject to change based on registration numbers***

How can I help? You can help by coaching, assistant coaching or by being a team Mom/Dad.
