Kindergarten – players entering kindergarten this year or are advanced players from PreK
U8 – first and second grade
U10 – third and fourth grade
U13 – fifth, sixth, and seventh grade

The above grade guidelines are for your reference only. If you would like to your child play up a division, and have not already spoken with your coach or the Club, please feel free to contact us at christiansburgsoccer@gmail.com

April snow showers lead to soggy fields

If only it was 80° with 20 mph winds our fields would be dry by morning … but alas, it is not. The snow is melting but the fields are not draining. As a result, ALL FIELDS ARE CLOSED FRIDAY EVENING AND SATURDAY MORNING and:

1) All Kindergarten games originally scheduled for April 5th will now be postponed to Friday, May 17th;

2) All CSC home rec games originally scheduled for April 6th are postponed to Saturday, May 18th;

3) All CSC teams scheduled to play in Blacksburg tomorrow will now be playing next Sunday, April 14th. Kickoff is scheduled for 5 hours later than originally scheduled for tomorrow’s game. For example, a game originally scheduled for 9:00 a.m. will now start at 2:00 p.m. next Sunday. Coaches need to contact their team ASAP and let us know by MONDAY if they will have enough players. If not, we will recruit guest players because NRU fields are not available May 18th. If a coach is not available, and no substitute is available on the team, let us know and a guest coach will be arranged.

4) Afternoon travel games have not yet been postponed, but field conditions do not look favorable.

Concussion Safety: Starting the season off right

As we start another fun season of soccer, it’s important to take a few moments to review the signs and symptoms of a concussion, just to be on the safe side.

Concussions affect both boys and girls; while girls have a higher documented rate of concussion at 36 per 100,000. Most soccer related concussions are caused by hard falls to the ground, collisions with other players, or even when attempting to head the ball but rather making contact with the opposing player.

We have a number of resources available to you throughout our site. Parents should start here. Coaches should start here. For now, here is a quick look at what concussion symptoms look like and what steps to take if you think a player has sustained one.
