The Springfield Soccer Club provides a challenging program for boys and
girls that desire to play soccer at a more competitive and challenging
level. Our Club is a member in good standing of the
Miami Valley Youth Soccer Association,
Ohio South Youth Soccer Association,
US Youth Soccer,
the United States Soccer
Federation and the FIFA (the
governing body for world soccer).
Being a player on a select soccer team requires dedication and commitment
from the player and the parents. To compete at the select level
requires practice several nights a week and practice at home to improve
players ball skills.
. The club
has employed a professional trainer to conduct sessions with
each team. Our club's Board Members and Coaches are hard
working volunteers who commit a great deal of time to ensure the success
of our soccer club. Our primary objectives are to promote soccer in
the Springfield area, develop players for the area's high school soccer
programs, and of course have lots of fun.
Springfield Thunder is organized and managed by a staff
of elected volunteer officers.
2012 Club Board:
Depending upon the number of qualified candidates, we will field single
age teams from U-8 through U-19. Each team consists of up to 18
players (U8,9 &10 are up to 12, U11 & U12 are up to 14). Each teams coach will contact by phone or mail all players
within 14 days of tryouts. Additional tryouts may be required at the
coach's discretion to complete team rosters or help make final player
Our teams compete in both Fall and Spring Soccer Leagues. Each season
consists of 8 games of which 4 are home and 4 are away. Fall season
practices start around the first of August with games starting in the last
half of August and
continuing through October. Spring Season begins around the
beginning of March weather permitting and the game schedule begins in
late March and runs through May. Teams may compete in tournaments before, during, or after the
season. The number of tournaments a team plays in is dependent upon
the coaching staff, parents, and over all team ability.
Springfield Thunder Soccer Club is a family commitment. The
players and coaches need your positive support. Each team will
select a parent as a Team Representative. Team Representatives
assist their coach administratively and represent their team at Board of
Directors meetings. Our club officers are selected from this group of Team
Reps. The success of our
annual Springfield of Dreams Charity Cup which is a major club fund raiser
requires the help of all club members.
Once a player has been selected to play for a Springfield Thunder team
the club will need the following player
information at the Signing Day meeting - address, phone, email,
parents, dob, emergency contact, doctor, uniform jersey and shorts sizes. We will need a 1 inch by
1 inch photo of the player, copy of their birth certificate, and a check
made payable to Springfield Thunder Soccer Club in the amount of the
current player fee.
