Although this is a recreational soccer program; The Bridgewater Recreation Department does require commitment from it's participants. If players show up late to or do not attend practices or games, they might not start a game and may perhaps get less playing time than those players who are committed to the program.
Practices for all grades will take place weekdays anywhere from 5:00pm to 7:30pm beginning the second week of September for the Fall season and first week of April for the Spring season (weather permitting). All practices are held outdoors in the Bridgewater area. They are scheduled by the availability of the volunteer coaches and field availability, expect to travel. Participants will be contacted via their coach regarding program information prior to practice. Practices can be extended to one and a half hours at the coaches request.
Teams are formulated by the Recreation Department. Boys and girls play on separate teams. Once a child is placed on a team, there will be no switching for that season for any reason. Participants are allowed to play both In-Town and Travel soccer. If there is a problem during the season with a coach or team, please contact Recreation immediately to address the issue.
