To all Grade 2- HSRec SWSC Coaches, Players and Parents.

Many games on November 5 are changing in both time and location.  THPRD has continued to close fields due to poor conditions over the last few days (we have now lost over 1/5 of our fields) and the scheduler has finished reassigning games to the remaining open fields.  This often requires a time change as well.

Please regularly check your game schedule up to the last minute.  Go to http://www.thjsl.org/home.php>Games>Fall 2016-Schedules.

Thanks much for your patience and flexibility as the league deals with the immense amount of rain we received in October.

Grade 2 – HS Rec Coaches, Players, Parents – Updated game schedule for October 29, make-up games for all on November 5 – please check your schedule online

Hi all Grade 2-HSRec SWSC Coaches, Players, and Parents,

Everyone needs to check their game schedule on the official THJSL site: http://schedules.compumetics.com/Fall2016/ before your game this weekend. A number of teams have moved locations on October 29 due to unplayable fields.

In addition, the games that were lost when all the fields closed on October 15 have been rescheduled to Saturday, November 5. Please note that many games are in a different location and at a different time so it is critical that you check your schedule.

For the teams who lost games on October 22 because of field closures, your make-up games are being scheduled for next week on Tues/Wed/Thur (on lighted fields at either PCC-Rock Creek or THPRD). Those have not yet been posted but we expect them to be available in the next couple of days. We will let you know when they are available.

If you have any questions, please let us know – email to registrar@somersetwestsoccer.org.

Thanks for your patience and understanding through this very wet October.

All practices cancelled for Monday-Thursday, Oct 17-20, Grade 2-HSRec games are currently on for October 22

The park district has closed all grass fields for the week of Monday, Oct 17 thru Thursday, October 20 so there will be no practices this week.  This includes the cancellation of microsoccer for both Tuesday and Thursday.

The grass fields are water-logged and the district believes that they will be seriously damaged if used in this condition.  By cancelling practices, they are hopeful that the games scheduled for next Saturday can be played.

For our micro teams, we are looking at our options to extend your season one more week.  As soon as we can, we will let you know.

For our older teams, the league is looking at the possibility of rescheduling the games cancelled by the bad weather/field conditions last weekend.  However, there is only one day available (November 5) and it is still unclear that the reschedule can be done.  We will let you know as soon as we hear from the league.

Thanks to everyone for your understanding and your patience.

All Grade 2 – HSREc games cancelled for Saturday, October 15

We just received word from the league that all the Grade 2 – HSRec games scheduled for Saturday, October 15 have been cancelled due to both field conditions and expected bad weather.  This includes games scheduled to be played in Hillsboro, Sherwood, and Tualatin as they have also closed all their fields.

All HSRec games, even those on the THPRD turf fields have also been cancelled.

The league will be looking at the possibility of scheduling a make-up game but there are no guarantees.  The only possible option is to schedule additional games on November 5 (the last day the league has the fields) and timing and availability are an issue.  We will keep everyone informed on this.

All practices (including microsoccer) on Thursday, October 13 cancelled – all grass fields are closed due to inclement weather

Discount codes for Micro players turning 7 in 2016 and Grade 8 players turning 14 in 2016

IMPORTANT:  If you have a player turning 7 in 2016 who will be entering 1st grade (playing Microsoccer) this coming fall (usually the kids born between September-December 2009), please contact the registrar at registrar@somersetwestsoccer.org before registering.  Because of changes in the online program, they will be charged the 2nd grade fee.  The registrar will provide you a discount code to use when registering that will result in you only being charged the Microsoccer fee.

Similarly, if you have a player turning 14 in 2016 (usually kids born between September-December, 2002) who will be entering 8th grade, you may be charged the High School Rec fee because of changes in the online program.  Please contact the registrar at registrar@somersetwestsoccer.org before registering to obtain a discount code.

U# naming convention changing in the Fall 2016 season

Starting in the Fall 2016 season, our teams will be designated by grade rather than age.  While competitive teams are moving to a calendar age placement, our recreational clubs are staying with teams based on player’s grades to allow classmates to continue to play together.  The U# designations are being replaced by G# as follows (G stands for “grade”).  You will not see the U# or the G# designation when you register your player – we will use the entered grade on your player’s registration when creating the fall teams.

Microsoccer – U6/U7 becomes G1 (includes both kindergarten and first grade)
2nd grade – U8 becomes G2
3rd grade – U9 becomes G3
4th grade – U10 becomes G4
5th grade – U11 becomes G5
6th grade – U12 becomes G6
7th grade – U13 becomes G7
8th grade – U14 becomes G8
HSRec – U15/U16/U17/U18/U19 becomes G12 (includes grades 9-12)
