Frequently asked questions



When will I know about my child’s practice schedule?

TVSA team coaches will contact their teams approximately one week after our coaches meeting, so teams have the opportunity to practice for two weeks prior to their first game.  Practice start dates may vary, depending on when a volunteer team coach is named and practice is scheduled through the field coordinator. The program uses volunteer coaches for every one of its teams. There are some situations where we are still recruiting coaches during the first week of practice, but this is rare and usually few participants are affected.

Can I become a coach in the Recreation program?

Yes! Coaching in our program is as fun and as rewarding as playing, and a soccer background is unnecessary. We will provide you with all the information you need to make recreation soccer a fun and rewarding experience for every child! All you need to do is volunteer! Please check the box in the registration process that you would like to coach your child’s team and someone will be in touch with you about coaching before the coaches meeting. Volunteers that complete a full season as well as a training program are eligible to have their player's registration fee returned to them.



Where are my child’s recreation soccer games played?

This varies year-to year and by age group. Most games will play at Cane River Park or Burnsville Elementary, but, depending on roster turnout, many games at the older age groups will take place in Asheville.


What equipment does my child need?

All players will receive a uniform jersey from TVSA. The other equipment needed are black shorts, black socks, and shin guards (cleats are optional). Shin guards can be purchased anywhere that sporting equipment is sold. TVSA highly recommends the purchase of an age appropriate sized ball.

AGE GROUP BALL SIZE
U5 through U8 3
U9 through U12 4
U13 and above 5


How often will my child practice?

Our teams practice once or twice during the week. Practice times vary depending on available sunlight, and sessions run from 1 – 1.5 hours.



What days are games played?

The majority of games are held on Saturdays. However, there will be times when other programs will hold weekend events, which will require that some games be played during the evening on weekdays.



What age group is my child in?

In the recreation program, your child’s age group is determined by his/her age on August 1st (with the "U" meaning "Under").  He/She stays in that age group until August 1st of the next year, so everyone ages up together.  We offer U6, U8, U10, U12, U14 and U18 Recreation teams.

Competitive programs are similar, but their cut-off date is January 1--their age group is by birth year. We currently offer U10, U12,  U14, and U18 Competitive teams.



Can my child play up/down from their age group?

To allow children to participate with their classmates or to facilitate those who may be more physically mature for their age, we allow any player who desires to play up one age group to do so by selecting that on their registration. For the safety and enjoyment of all of our participants, players are not allowed to play up more than one age group without approval from the Director of our Recreation Program. Please be aware, United States Youth Soccer Association regulations prohibit children from playing in age groups younger than their true age.



Do I have to live in Yancey County to participate? 

Absolutely not!



How will I know if games are cancelled due to weather?

We make every effort to post weather announcements on game day by 7:00 AM for morning games and by 11:00 AM for afternoon games. If Saturday games need to be cancelled on Friday, we will make the announcement then. Notices will be posted on the TVSA Homepage, which is the best way to get the most up-to-date cancellations. Please be aware that,  in the event severe weather occurs after teams are at the field, the referee always has the final say as to whether a game will be played.
