Welcome to the Home of the
Charlotte Junior Soccer Foundation!
Since 1974, we have offered recreational and competitive soccer opportunities in the Central Charlotte area for boys and girls from 4 - 18 in the fall and spring.
Monday, May 20th: We are going to try to reschedule G2, B2 and G3 tournament games on Wednesday, May 22 and Thursday, May 23 at Freedom Park and Independence Park, weather permitting.
Lost: Camera Bag at Freedom Park. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if found.
Field Closings: If this web site and/or the CJSF phone line is not updated (showing today's date or stating today's date on the message), please call Parks & Rec 704-336-5800 Ext. 4. If our area has had significant rain, the fields will be closed, and may be closed the second day after a heavy rain. If the CJSF web site and CJSF phone rain out message are updated and current, that takes precedence over P&R updates.
SPRING 2013 REGISTRATION: Registration closed February 15th. Late registrants (Feb 16-March 1) will be placed on a space available basis. If your child is not placed on a team or you cancelbefore the first practice, you will receive a full refund. When you register, you will be assigned a confirmation number--please look for this to ensure that your registration was successful.
We begin play in mid-March and finish in late May. We do not play on Easter weekend (March 30-31). It takes 2 to 4 weeks to get the divisions organized, coaches lined up, rosters sent out, and practices scheduled. We hope to start practices for the older teams in late February/first week of March and all the younger divisions thereafter by mid-March.
Field Closings: closings will be posted by 7:30 AM Saturdays and 10 AM Sundays and by 4 PM weekdays or soon thereafter. Both the CJSF web site HOME page and the rain out line (704) 366-3030 will be updated. The Parks and Rec Rain Out line is usually updated for field closings: 704-336-5800 ext. 4. If games are canceled, they are canceled for the whole day.
Tips on what to look for re: closings: first, look at the date and make sure it is TODAY'S date. If not, then the web site or phone line has not been updated for today and you have to wait until 4 PM weekdays or 7:30 AM on Sat; or call the Parks & Rec phone line (704-336-5800 Ext. 4) and see if it is updated for today. Generally, CJSF updates the CJSF phone line and web site before Parks & Rec. If neither the phone, web site or Parks & Rec Rain out line are updated for TODAY's date and it is past 4 PM/7:30 AM for Sat, assume the fields are OPEN. If the circles by the fields are green, fields are open; red means closed; yellow means pending.
GOALS: PLEASE MAKE SURE THE GOALS ARE ANCHORED WITH SAND BAGS BEFORE YOU PRACTICE OR PLAY A GAME. THERE ARE SAND BAGS AT EACH FIELD. Two bags per goal on the bottom back corners. Exception-the small 4 x 6 snap together goals with red nets used for the U6 and under.
NOTE ON SOCCER GOAL SAFETY, ANCHOR BAGS, WIND, ETC AND WHY IT'S IMPORTANT: Please make sure goals are anchored with multiple sandbags at ALL times. Always use caution around soccer goals. Do not allow anyone to climb on the posts, hang from the crossbar, or play in the nets. This unapproved play can cause goals to tip over. High winds or strong wind gusts can cause goals to blow over. Sandbags/goal anchors should be placed on the back two corners of the goals, and a third sandbag in the middle back of larger goals. Soccer goals can tip over and cause serious injury and sometimes death.
The goals, goal anchors and sandbags are not toys. Do not let children play with them, tear them up, make holes in the sandbags with sticks, or dance on top of sandbags with their cleats. Everyone needs to check goals to make sure they are anchored, whether playing soccer or not. (NOTE: This does not apply to the U6 and Moppet goals-4x6 size-do not use sandbags on these goals. Do not allow kids to climb on these goals, either.)
Contacting CJSF: please email us at email@example.com. That way we can direct your email to the right person. We are a 100% volunteer operated organization (for 39 years!). We all have families and jobs like you, too, so please be patient and civil. We will answer your questions or solve the problems to the best of our abilities. Thank you.
