FAQ’s

Practice schedules are determined just prior to the start of each season.  We take into account each coach’s requests for days and times and put together a club-wide training calendar utilizing the fields we have been allocated by the City, County and League.  The fields we normally use for practices during the Fall and Spring seasons are the Moana Soccer Fields (Reno), South Valleys Regional Park (Reno), Echo Loder School (Reno) and Golden Eagle Regional Park (Sparks).  We use SWIFT Sportsdome South Meadows (Reno) for indoor practices during the winter as well as Golden Eagle Regional Park (Sparks) for winter outdoor practices when required.  All our teams practice at least twice a week, some higher level teams choose to practice three times per week.

We have  teams that play in ECRL, NPL and NorCal Premier League.  These leagues require travel to Sacramento and the Bay Area for Away games.

We have teams that play in GBYSL Select, a local competitive league, and also some teams that play in GBYSL Recreational League.

No, unlike recreational teams our Club teams are made up of players from all over Reno-Sparks, with some joining us from South Tahoe, Carson City, Truckee and Fernley.  Players are selected and invited to join teams based on their level of play.  With our tiered team structure, we have an appropriate level team for almost all players.

Open Tryouts in May are for the following soccer year that starts July 1st.  Our coaches are encouraged to give teams some time off during the summer, however each coach will set the summer schedule based on their summer availability and team plans for any summer tournaments.  Most leagues begin in August.

Our Academy teams are for players identified as having potential and a passion for the game, but not quite ready for our competitive league teams (Silver, Gold and Premier).  The focus is on developing technical abilities, learning the game and having fun.  League games are in GBYSL.  As players develop, the coaching staff in the age group with the coaching directors, will decide if guest play opportunities or attending practice sessions with the competitive teams are appropriate.
