Every player at every age division is required to wear shin guards. Shin guards are to be worn under the socks. Each player should also have an age appropriate ball (Pre-K through U-8 size 3, U-10 size 4, U-13 and above size 5) and water at each game and practice. Cleats are recommended for U-8 and above and are optional for Pre-K and K.
Call for volunteers: CSC provides a framework for youth to play soccer, but it needs parent support to make it work. Below is a listing of a number of areas where parents can volunteer this season. Some are calls for one-time help; others are for the season.
1) Signs: If you see that a CSC sign is still up and can take it down along with the two posts and take to our office at 70 E. 1st St, please do so and e-mail me where it came from.
2) Fields: CMS2 and the U18 field will be marked at 9:00 a.m. Saturday, weather permitting. 3 volunteers are requested.
3) Trash: Here is a bureaucratic head scratcher: CMS will not empty trash cans on CMS fields. If you have a truck, and see a full trash bag sitting next to the fence, please consider loading it up to take to the dump. DO NOT complain to the school. We are fortunate to have the fields and do not want that jeopardized.
4) Lining fields: If your child’s team has a Thursday night practice on CPS, FBE, or CMS, consider contacting me to paint the lines. It is easy once the lines have been originally marked,m and gives a parent something to do during practice. Teams practicing on Thursdays need to make way for the line painters.
Finally. we have record numbers and significant field limitations. We are working to remedy that, with GSBC field scheduled for full opening in the spring, and a renovated Depot Street field expected to open next fall. Until then, space is tight, so please cooperate with teams that you are sharing space with.
Recreation schedules were just approved by NRU for our interleague games, so schedules for all divisions will hopefully be released by tomorrow. We had to wait on that because we have some coaches who coach both U10 or above, as well as U8 and below.

CSC Day at Dick’s Sporting Goods
Saturday, August 25th, 10 am – 4 pm
As of March 2012, slide tackling will not be permitted in the U13-U18 age groups of the Christiansburg Soccer Club and New River United recreation programs. All slide tackles will result in a direct free kick for the opposing team, and the player that committed the offense will receive a yellow card. If the player commits a second slide tackle, the respective player may be given a red card which would result in an immediate dismissal from the game. All decisions are at the discretion of the center referee. The referee crew will have a zero tolerance in this matter during all official games. This rule goes into effect immediately, and will go into action for the upcoming 2012 spring season. The ‘No Slide Tackling’ rule was implemented to minimize reckless challenges and injuries, while creating a fun, safe, and positive experience for all parties involved
