What is Pequannock Soccer Club?
Established in 1978, Pequannock Soccer Club is a nonprofit organization that provides a professional, competitive, safe, and positive soccer environment for youth soccer players ages 5 – 16. The focus is on player development while being competitive. The ultimate success of the program is not measured by wins and losses. It is determined by the willingness of the children to want to play again the next year because they had fun, improved their skills, and matured through teamwork, sportsmanship, commitment and self-confidence.
What is the Club’s Mission?
Pequannock Soccer Club strives to enable children to have fun playing soccer at the highest competitive level possible. We aim to provide training and competition based on the individual capabilities (all skill levels are welcome, but it is possible that not everyone makes a team). For players to reach their highest potential, we promote the importance of sportsmanship, self-confidence, social development and leadership abilities. In addition, we support important life (and soccer) skills such as responsibility, teamwork, discipline, commitment and fair play.
What is the Club’s Vision?
Pequannock Soccer Club is committed to skill development, personal growth, family, community, and creating memorable life experiences centered around a passion for the game of soccer!
What is the Club’s Program?
Pequannock Soccer Club offers two programs:
The club will form as many teams as possible given the number of players who tryout. The club will make every effort to make sure that kids who want to play soccer are able to play soccer, but there does need to be a minimum number of players and coaches.
What are the roster sizes and games time?
The teams are determined by birth year. For example, a child born in November 2009 would be classified as U10 for the 2018/2019 season. U9&U10 teams play 7v7 with 25-minute halves and 10-minute halftime. This age group plays with a buildout line and the maximum roster size is 14 with a minimum roster size of 7. U11&U12 teams play 9v9, 30-minute halves with 10-minute halftime. The maximum roster size 16 with a minimum of 9. U13&U14 play 11v11 with 35-minute halves and 10-minute halftime. The maximum roster size is 18 with a minimum size of 11. U9-U12 use a size 4 soccer ball. All levels above this use a size 5. For further information on roster sizes, please see our By-Laws. Players are required to show up at least 30 minutes before game time to warm up and to check-in.
What is the Club’s Philosophy?
We strive to put the kids first in everything that we do. This means that each child plays a minimum amount in every game. There is never a time a child goes to a game and does not play because of a coach’s choice. If healthy, the child will play a minimum amount in each half. Further information can be found in the club’s By-Laws. Coaches are encouraged to develop all of the players, not just the better skilled ones. While each team strives to be competitive, the focus is on player development.
What is in it for Players, Coaches, and Parents?
How much does it cost and what do I get?
The registration fee can vary annually but it is $500 player for the Fall2019/Spring 2020 season. Roughly 40-50% of this goes to training, about 25-30% goes to registration and referee fees, and about 25-30% goes to equipment and administrative supplies. This includes all training for Fall and Spring and includes playing in our annual tournament, Pequannock Fall Classic. The registration fee is very competitive compared to other clubs and other clubs do not host a tournament. The registration fee usually includes some form of winter training. The cost of the uniform is roughly $85 and includes three jerseys (home, away and practice), shorts, and socks. More options (like team backpack, team jacket, etc.) are also available. The club offers pre-season team training for one week in August and supplemental winter training for an additional charge. This is encouraged but not required. We also have club wide summer training for those that are interested.
What do you do as a Club?
In the past, we have gone to Red Bulls and Sky Blue FC games. Before the season starts, we have a club kick-off party, which includes a fun tournament. We are also active in our community by supporting our High School teams (not just soccer) and each of the school’s HSA. We have apparel sales and hold a team and individual picture day event. The Club also offers annual scholarships to graduating seniors. The Club contributes to the maintenance of the fields and equipment in town. We are always open to ideas on what else we can do as a club.
