Registration Information

Announcements: 
Spring registration begins on January 1, 2015.  New spring teams for 2015 may be formed in addition to existing fall/spring teams.
Priority Registration - January 1 through February 15 - Players who register during this time can request a specific coach or to play with a buddy.  Fees are discounted.  Returning players will be returned to the same team they played on during the fall 2014 season provided their team is still intact. 
Regular Registration - February 16 and later - Players who register during this time will be added to teams which have space available.  Due to space limitations, coach or buddy requests are not taken.

Guidelines for fall 14/spring 15 already preregistered players who are requesting a spring 2015 season team change:
  • Availability on spring teams is limited due to the fact that many players may already be pre-registered for the team.  Players who were not pre-registered still have priority placement on their fall/spring team if they submit their registrations during the priority registration period - January 1 to February 15.  Spots can open up on spring teams after February 15 if players requests a drop or if they fail to register during the priority registration time.
  • If you would like to submit a request for a spring season team change, please send the registrar an email (kickers@ickickers.org) with your players name, grade/team letter and which team they want to switch to.
  • A new jersey (grades 3 and up) must be purchased upon assignment to the spring team of your choice.  Replacement jerseys are $15.00
  • Spring team assignments will be finalized on or about March 24, 2015.
