2018 Tournaments

Link to the 2018 tournament schedule and information will be posted mid-March: 2018 team tournaments

Represent yourself, your family, and the Club every time you play. Consider yourself a Club ambassador every time you step on the field, whether it is for Addison United, your school, Vermont Soccer Association/League, etc.

The coach is responsible for managing players during games. The referee is responsible for ensuring that the rules of the game are enforced. Parents are spectators, and they are expected to watch the game and cheer not only for their own child but all of his/her teammates. Measure your son or daughter’s success not by wins and losses, but by performances and progress.

We are not in the business of telling the parents of our players how to be parents. We are here to mentor better soccer players and help develop their skills. As parents, you can have a positive effect on your child’s development, BUT you can have a negative one as well (whether intentional or not). Be aware and follow each tournament’s rules and guidelines.  We expect our players and parents to follow the rules, or you will be asked not to participate.

*Players must have parental supervision at tournaments to participate.

*Addison United will save blocks of rooms at nearby hotels for teams traveling to tournaments.  Your Team Manager will let you know when and where to make your reservation.

Inclement Weather Policy

Please know that the Club’s primary concern is always for the safety of our players, families, and staff. When your School District closes school due to weather, most likely club activities will also be canceled. Information about the canceled club activities due to inclement weather will be posted on Club’s website and Facebook page. If weather conditions change (improve or deteriorate) throughout the day, or if the club activity is not scheduled on a school day, the Club will also post information on our website and Facebook page as necessary. Assessments of the weather, the weather forecast, and road conditions all factor into the Club’s decision to cancel activities. These assessments take place across a broad geographical area, and conditions in your neighborhood or on your route to/from club activities may differ from the rest of the region. If you are concerned that it is not safe for you or your child to be on the road, please do not hesitate to stay home. The final decision about coming to club activities in inclement weather is yours.

NOTIFICATION:
Website/Facebook: The Club will post information on our website and Facebook page as necessary.
