Welcome to another year of soccer

Welcome to another year of soccer in Ilderton.  Registration for the 2017 season is now open.

Last year was the first of the new area association Elgin Middlesex Youth Soccer League (EMSYL) (new) as governed by the Ontario Soccer Association (OSA). As we move in to the second season under the new governance, we will make some decisions based on our experience and what happened in our 2016 season.  Getting players registered as early as possible will ensure the Board maximum time to align our teams/age groups and most importantly field as many teams as possible.

REGISTRATION DEADLINE FOR ALL PLAYERS is January 20, 2017.  Registration link can be found on the Ilderton and District Soccer Club’s webpage(listed at the bottom of this email). Late registrations will only be accepted on an as needed basis to field complete teams.  

Please spread the word to all and like us on Facebook for further updates.

FEES:   We are pleased to let membership know that there will be no fee increase this year.

COMPETITIVE TEAMS:  If your player is interested in playing on a competitive team, please register in a competitive option so we have a good idea of how many competitive teams we will be. As in prior years, there will be a competitive fee charged to all players on competitive teams.  This fee will be collected from players once all competitive teams have been finalized.p

SEASON START DATES:  U8 and older teams will start Mid May.  U4 and U6 teams will start after the May long weekend.  U4 will continue for the 2017 season so please spread the word.

COACHES:  We are always looking for coaches.  If you are interested in coaching a team, please indicate that along with your child’s registration as we need to assign them earlier than past years. You do not need to have previous coaching experience and there will be coaching resources available. If you have any questions please contact Pat Wild, IDSC Head Coach.

SPONSORS:  First of all, thank you to our many sponsors who, year after year, help support our teams and our Organization!  We greatly appreciate it.   If you would like to sponsor a team, please contact our Sponsorship Co-ordinator for more information.

LOGO: Ilderton Ignite is looking for a new logo! This is a chance for you and your children to help us design a new logo for Ilderton soccer. Be creative and help us to come up with a new design. Please submit your new logo ideas to  ildertonsoccer@gmail.com.

All entries must be submitted electronically by January 11 2017 at 6:00 pm to be considered.

Finally, I would like to thank all of the dedicated Board members, coaches, and players who continue to make this an amazing Club.  Good luck to all the players and coaches this season and see you on the pitch!
