11-12U Competitive Team Program

8U-12U Spring Practice Information (April Turf Training)
  • 8U-12U Competitive team training begins next week (week of April 11)
  • All training sessions are initially at Eden Prairie High School – Outdoor on Turf A and the Stadium or occasionally at the CMS turf field for some teams (check TeamSnap for your teams specific field)
  • Please note – multiple teams will be training on the field. Please be sure to know your child’s coaches name and the team name so you can find the correct group on week one. It is important that your child finds the correct coach and does not jump in with any team. The coaches will have a copy of the rosters so please ask them.
  • Please bring a ball and water, wear shin guards, wear the grey training jersey and bring the black/white reversible pinnie to every practice. New players only will receive the pinnie from the coach. Soccer cleats can be worn on the turf.
  • Please always dress for the weather. It may be cold/wet the first few weeks of the season. Bring rain jackets etc as needed
  • Weather – if training sessions are cancelled due to bad weather a club notification email will be sent out and/or it will be posted on the club website.  You will not receive a notification to say practices are on, so please assume practice is on unless you receive an email to say otherwise.
  • The coach will host a short team parent meeting after one of the practices either the week of April 11 or the week of April 18. Please look out for a note from the coach or team manager on this. This will be outdoors at the fields for 20-30 mins. Please bring a chair.
  • Practices for the week of April 25 onwards will be added to Teamsnap soon by the coach or manager.  These will continue on the same nights but will move to the grass fields. We are waiting on official confirmation on the start date for the grass fields but the 25th is our usual start date (weather dependent). Should there be any delay on this you will be notified and practices would then remain on the turf at the high school.
  • Parents/Spectators should always remain at least 6 feet back from the training area during practices.
We are looking forward to seeing all the players again and to a great season of soccer!
