Important Things to Know:

No jewelry, hooded sweatshirts or hats with bills please!  Just a reminder, Goodrich Soccer Club has a safety policy that does not allow jewelry to be worn on the fields, including pierced earrings.  If you plan on having your child’s ears pierced, please plan on doing so after the season so that “starter earrings” will not be an issue.


Middle School Parking:  Help the Soccer Club and Goodrich Schools keep safe by not parking along the edge of the Middle School fields.  We’ve had kids nearly hit as they run between the fast moving cars in past years. Goodrich Area Schools expects our club to keep this area clear of any cars at all times during our usage of the fields. Drop offs are ok, but please move slowly to the nearby parking lots.  This area will become a posted tow away zone as of this spring!


For your safety: Goodrich Soccer Club requires that all parents that are going to “coach” for recreational teams must pass a criminal background check in advance of walking on the field to direct our kids. The $10 fee for this is always paid by the club. The process is confidentially managed via our MSYSA affiliation website.



Parents, Give us a Hand! Please be sure to help us police the fields after the game. Pick up any trash you see at every outing. The litter that gets left gets chopped up by the mower. Please just take home at least as much as you bring and we’ll be fine. We won’t have to get someone to empty trash cans if this happens.


Volunteers Needed!
Our club is operated by non-paid parent volunteers and we need your talent and energy! Our club is not funded by the school or your property taxes, and by not paying people to set up and operate the club we keep the costs down. As kids grow up their parents want to move on too. We always need to replenish our parent-run organization with new parents with younger kids. Check out the website for areas you can contribute where the committee positions are open. Contact Gary Ashley to let us know what you are interested in!

Please contact your Coach or League Coordinator if you have any questions.


I hope you and your child enjoy spring soccer with our club!
