***Indoor Soccer Registration DEADLINE Friday September 22, 2023!***
Any U9-U18 Soccer Registrations done after this time will be subject to the FC Northwest Soccer LATE REGISTRATION POLICY

a). A player is considered and processed as a late registration if their registration is received after the team formation & player placement meeting has taken place. 

b). At this time teams have been formed and players are generally placed according to team numbers.  Requests are very difficult to process when a player is late and are most often not met. 

c). It can take up to two weeks to process a late registration so this may mean the start of the season beginning before a player is confirmed on a team.  

d). Players cannot attend or participate with any team (practices, games, etc.) until the convener and/or coach have confirmed them on a roster.

e). Players will not be transferred to another district at this time if a spot can be provided on a team within the FCNW district.

An email must be sent to recreation@weststpaul.com in order to see if additional players can be accepted after the Soccer Registration Deadline
