FALL 2013 TEAM REGISTRATION WILL BE OPEN FROM MAY 1, 2013 THROUGH JUNE 30, 2013. Please make certain that you understand the age groups and playing age. The "U" before the number means "under" so a U6 team means all players are under 6 years old on Aug 1, 2013 but can turn 6 during the seasonal year. U7 means all players are under 7 years old as of Aug 1, 2013. The playing age of the team is determined by the oldest player on the team( Team Registration )
Individual registration will open May 15th for players that HAVE a team. Team coaches /managers should inform their parents that they will need to visit our website and complete the online individual registration in order to be listed on the team roster. Teams must have the minimum number of players on their roster to be considered a viable team.
Team fee is $580. Any schedule requests must be emailed to Cindy Quan at email@example.com by August 15th to be considered.

U5 and U6 teams need a minimum number of 8 players and U7 teams need a minimum number of 9 players.

The SF Viking Club is launching a new program within microsoccer to meet the need for age-appropriate player instruction for those children whose parents are not able to coach, or don’t want a parent coach.
The Club will provide a paid coach who will instruct the children at 8 practices and every game for the spring season. The coach will be trained by the Club coaching director, Jeff Wilson, in age-appropriate practices and developmental objectives. The team will also have a “mentor”, who will provide additional advice. The Viking office will provide additional administrative support. The mentor is currently Toby Rappolt and his email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
The cost per team is $2500.00 for the spring season. This includes the team registration fee, the coach fee (the coach will hold 8 practices and be at the 6 games), and administrative support. This team fee is to be divided by the number of players on the team.
If you have questions or would like to register an Academy Club team please email us at email@example.com.

R&P Rainout Information
Age Groups for Fall2012/Spring 2013 MicroSoccer
The team age group classification is based on the age of the oldest player. The age group is determined by the player's age on Aug 1, 2012. COACHES/MANAGERS ~ IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO GET THIS STRAIGHT. Every year one or two teams misregister their squad into the wrong age group (usually older) and it ends up being quite the season-long drama. Please check and understand the age group cutoffs. If you have any questions, contact the office.
The "U" stands for "under"... so, for example, this means that MOST U6 players will be 5-years old; unless they turned 6 in August or later. EXAMPLE again: a player with a birthdate of August 7, 2006 is a U6 player....while a player with a birthdate of July 4, 2006 is a U7 player.
SF Viking Summer Camp has been around for years, yet for many of our soccer players it is their first camp experience.
Our staff consists of nationally licensed coaches, former professional, and college players, who were selected for their ability to teach and their passion for the game.
Our coaches ensure that players of every age and ability level will have fun learning the game of soccer. The low player to coach ratio enables the coaches to provide continuous attention and individual skills training.
The camp also provides a variety of group exercises, small-sided games, and full field matches.
In addition to this first class training every player will receive an official camp shirt, soccer ball, and bag. At the end of the week every player will also get a personal evaluation from the coaching staff.
We specialize in coaching soccer to 5-12 year olds.
For more information and to register please visit www.sfvikingssoccer.org.
Volunteer to CoachIt is not hard to be a coach. We will give you 4 balls, 8 flat cones, 4 tall cones and a bag. You run a play group and teach the concept of a boundary and to kick the ball in a direction. The game almost teaches itself, so you don't need any playing experience just a good attitude for managing kids.
Field Rules and Regulations
Regardless of SF Park and Rec rules at specific field locations, there are absolutely no alcoholic beverages allowed at the soccer matches. This means anywhere in the vicinity of the fields.
Also, please do not bring your dog to the field and ask a young child to stand off the edge of the field to "watch the dog" while the parent watches the game.
It is distressing to our field marshalls to have to watch a young child with a dog standing off alone. Please, keep your dog at home for the soccer game. This has caused situations where the field marshalls did not want to send the kids away, but the parent was then sending the kids away to comply with the "no dog" rule. Our Rec & Park permit states "NO DOGS" so please do not bring a dog to the playing field vicinity.
Field Orientation at Marina Green
The field numbering will be as follows:
Fields 1&2 for the U6 age group are at the far EAST end of the Marina Green area. These fields have a smaller goal and no goal box because these games are 3v3.
The fields are numbered EAST to WEST, so the next set of fields are 2&3, then 4&5, moving towards the Golden Gate Bridge, with fields 11&12 at the far west end of the Marina Green, near the flagpole.
Do you coach or have children playing on multiple teams, and would like a listing of their schedule on one page? Then use the following:
