DMCV SHARKSRECREATIONAL LEAGUE
Online Registration will be available on our website’s Fall Season page, starting in April in advance of the season.
Unfortunately, we are unable to accommodate.
Walk-in Registration is the day to turn in your child’s signed, completed registration form.
Walk-in Registration is Saturday, May 5th from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at Ocean Air Elementary School.
Complete and Print out from the Registration site:
- Cal South Player Registration Form
- Payment receipt
IF your child is NEW to our recreational league, please bring a copy of their birth certificate or passport, as we need to check proof of birth. *Returning players will not need to provide this again.
You may still register online. Click on the link on the website, print out the Registration Form and payment receipt and mail them to the Sharks office after May 5th (along with a copy of your child’s birth certificate or passport, if necessary). Your child will be put on a roster if space is available. If all rosters are full, they will be placed on a waiting list and placed on a team as spots become available.
TEAMS, PRACTICE & GAMES
Teams and practice schedules will be posted on our website around the beginning of August. At that time, coaches will also be contacting families to let them know their team schedule.
Your child will need shin guards, socks to cover them and soccer cleats.
Practices will start either the last week of August or the first week of September, depending on field closures. This should be posted by beginning of August. Practices are once a week and may be held any day, Monday through Friday beginning at 3:30, 4:30 or 5:30 at local parks and elementary schools. Coaches will select where, when and what day the team practices.
*Unfortunately, due to the large volume of our program, we CANNOT accommodate any special requests for practice day/time/location.
Games are played on Saturdays beginning September 1st (first weekend will be a scrimmage) and ending on November 17th.
The intra-league tournament is a chance for our recreational teams to experience playing in a tournament format with multiple short games on one weekend during the fall season. This tournament is for our U8-U14 divisions (Div. 6 – Div. 3) and is scheduled the weekend of November 3rd – 4th (only Div. 5 boys play on Friday the 2nd).
COACHES & PARENTS
Every year we need more coaches, assistants and team parents. The league depends on parents to fill all these positions. Be sure to register online as a volunteer at the same time you register your child and let us know which position you would like. For Head and Assistant Coaches our Division Coordinators will be your source of information. We will only form teams for the number of coaches we have. All other players will be placed on a waitlist until another coach volunteers.
The 2018 requirements for coaching are set by our parent organization, Cal South. All Head and Assistant Coaches must go through Risk Management (fingerprinting) that is paid for by the league. In addition, ALL head coaches are required to have a recreational coaching license. This course must be taken online, along with the required concussion course. You will also be asked to attend a coaches meeting in late August where we will provide a Positive Coaching Alliance Workshop and distribute your equipment bag for the season. For more detailed information, please feel free to contact our Director of Recreation, Erin Misaki at firstname.lastname@example.org.
