Arlington Soccer Association - Fall 2022 Calendar of Events for Coaches and Families
Practices: In late August, players and their families will be notified by the player's coach with the day, time and field where practices will be held. If contact has not been made by early September please contact the appropriate Club Manager found under "Clubs" on the Arlington Soccer website.
Games: 1st grade through High School teams generally have seven games scheduled on Saturdays beginning in September plus one Sunday game. Saturday game start times can begin at 8:00 and run until 6:30. Depending on the number of teams in a division, two or more Sunday afternoon games could be scheduled. Sunday games begin at 12:15 pm. Sample game dates are posted at the end of the calendar.
Kindergarten teams in the fall follow the same calendar but sometimes the first weekend is used as a "Kinder fair" if new teams are still forming. Saturday game start times can begin at 8:30 and run until 5:30. Depending on the number of teams in a division, one or more Sunday afternoon games could be scheduled. Sunday games begin at 12:15 pm. Sample game dates are posted at the end of the calendar.
Rainouts: If rainouts occur, those games are automatically rescheduled on Sunday afternoons unless there is a full day of rainouts on grass fields, in which case games will be moved to the weekend in June, the rain dates. Requests will not be accepted for the automatically rescheduled rained out games. It is always a good idea to check the Arlington County inclement weather number, 703-228-4715 or the Falls Church inclement weather number, 703-248-5125, even on a sunny day when there have been recent rainy days, for field closures.
