Miscellaneous Program Questions

1. Do you do friend requests?
We do! For girls, soccer is just as much social as it is physical. After you register email us with your friend request. Please note that requests are limited to a maximum of 3 players- 1 player plus 2 friends. 
2. Can my daughter play up an age? She is advanced in comparison to her peers.
Our main priority is developing soccer players and ensuring they are challenged. If a coach determines that a player will reap more rewards in a different age bracket we will definitley seek out the parents and have a chat to see what’s possible!
3. When will I receive information about the program I registered for?
We send out an informative newsletter to all families no later than 10 days before the program start date. In the meantime, refer to the program page on the website or email us-we are always happy to answer your questions!
4. What about bad weather?
Programs will be held if it is just raining or if it is cold. If there is thunder and lightning, we will have to cancel. We do everything in our power to reschdule or accommodate the session miss. In the summer months the house league cannot move inside, it is subject to the above conditions as well.
5. My child is an absolute beginner, will she be okay?
Absolutely! Both the FGS and Coerver curriculum are meant to get beginnners started the right way, with a complete soccer foundation and positive experience, no matter the age. This goes for all FGS house leagues and our individual development programs. In the individual development programs, players are tiered according to skill, never age, so that all players are developing at the right pace and are challenged at the same time.
6. My daughter is physically bigfor her age and doesn’t like to train with smaller players…can you move her?
At FGS we assess all players based on skill. In our experience we have seen younger players have more skill than older players and short players have more skill than taller players. This can also work in the reverse. The one dimension that remains constant is skill.
7. Do you hand out medals or trophies at the end of house league?
We do not. There is an end of season momento to be sure, but we do not provide end of season medals or trophies.
8. Does FGS do pictures?
FGS is unique in our picture offering. We provide action photos of all the players in our house league including the team pictures. This allows parents to pick out the ones they like, download them and print them on whatever they want.
9. Do you have a competitive soccer program?
FGS is the official development partner and coaches of the Oakville Blue Devils Junior Girls Academy. We coach the U9-U12 girls’ teams. You can read all about the Oakville Blue Devils Academy here.
