2022 Fall Season Overview

Fall Soccer Sprouts Intramural Program (Players under 4 years old)

Patriot FC implements a clinic-style format for our youngest players. All players born in 2019 are eligible for this division. This division has a discounted registration fee, and consists of fun challenges for our youngest players. The focus will be on playing one on one with the ball. This group trains once per week, on Saturdays, led by our trainers with parent assistance.  We will hold informal scrimmages at the end of each training session, but this age group will not have the more formal structure that is found in our older divisions. Registration includes a player shirt, shorts, socks and a size 3 ball. Each player is required to bring water & wear shin guards and cleats/sneakers to practice. 
 

Fall Intramural Program (Players 4-18 years old)

The Fall Intramural program is for players 4-18 years old. Our teams play in divisions that are organized based upon age and grade.  Following along with our small-sided game philosophy, our youngest divisions play 3v3 sided games, our middle divisions play 4v4, 7v7 and 9v9 sided games, and our middle and high school students play 11v11.

Patriot FC’s IM program is a true developmental program, and as per US Youth Soccer guidelines we have chosen to play small sided games for players 2009 and younger. Small-sided games are played on smaller fields, much the same way that other sports use progressively sized fields to accommodate play for smaller sized players.  The purpose of this approach is to increase the number of ball touches that every player gets during a game or practice, simplify the game for our youngest players, allow each player to be actively involved in all facets of the game, and give them more opportunities to score.  Smaller numbers also mean that the coach to player ratio is smaller, guaranteeing every player more individual teaching time. For more information on short sided games and the philosophy behind this approach, please check out the US Youth Soccer website at the following link:  www.usyouthsoccer.org/coaches/smallsidedgames.asp

  • Young Intramural / In-House Teams (Players 2015 birthyear and younger)

Our younger teams will only play in-house games. All intramural players in the younger age divisions will receive one weekday training in addition to their 8 scheduled games. This will increase the amount of training exposure that each of our players receives during the season.

  • Older Intramural / Recreational SEPA League (Players 2014 birthyear and older)
Inter-Club play will consist of home and away games for all of our teams in the older divisions. In the past, our older teams have participated in the SEPA Recreational League - www.warringtonsoccerpa.org/south-eastern-pa-rec-league. We will continue play here, and will also explore other options for Inter-Club play that may include games against neighboring clubs. SEPA offers our older intramural players the opportunity to play against neighboring townships in a full soccer setting, including referees.
  
Coaches, players, and parents will be advised as to locations for weekly practices and home games, but they will be either Brownsburg Park or Veterans Park. Away games will be played at neighboring clubs' fields. Games are generally on Saturday mornings and Sunday afternoons. Teams will be formed in August and coaches will share the information then.

Fall Intramural Volunteer Commitment

During the registration process, each family will be asked to select their volunteer commitment to Patriot FC.  Our Soccer Sprout division is exempt from this commitment. Patriot FC’s goal is to offer the best training for our players in a fun environment that encourages a love of the game.  We invest our resources in trainers to optimize practices, training courses and training tools to assist our volunteer coaches, equipment and field improvements.

We depend on our family volunteers to manage many of our club responsibilities. Parents/ guardians of our Young Intramural may choose from 5 volunteer opportunities.Parents/guardians of our Older Intramurals (SEPA) may choose from 3. Descriptions of these commitments can be found below. We need every family to support the club. Please choose carefully as the Patriot FC Board of Directors, coaches, children and parents are all counting on everyone's help. 

Patriot FC understands that some families are not able to volunteer their time. In this case, we offer a volunteer-opt-out option per player.  After reading the descriptions, if you believe your family will not be able to support the club through one of these roles, please select the opt-out-option. The opt-out-option cost is $100 per player. After August 15, volunteer roles will be filled and the $100 opt-out fee will be automatically applied at registration.
