Elementary Soccer

The McDonald's Fall Elementary School Soccer Program is a great opportunity for your child to get involved in soccer and learn a little about the game, teamwork, sportsmanship ... all while having fun on the field with school classmates. Each year, 600-1,000 players in grades Kindergarten through 5 come together from schools throughout the Neenah community: Wilson Elementary, New Hope, FVCA, Tullar Elementary, Spring Road Elementary, Roosevelt/Alliance Elementary, SMCS, Taft Elementary, Lakeview Elementary, Hoover Elementary, Coolidge Elementary, Clayton Elementary, and Neenah Lutheran Knights. 

Each year, the club, with the help of our sponsor, McDonald's, the Club is able to offer this six-week program at the low cost of only $35 per player. As an added bonus, when your player wears his/her McDonald's Fall Elementary School Soccer jersey into one of the participating Fox Valley McDonald's Locations, he/she will receive a free cone or sundae with any purchase! 

Game Play Information

Rain Outs: Soccer is played in the rain and will only be called off if there is thunder/lightning or if the fields are flooded.  NSC has set a deadline of 4 PM to call games off. If storms look like they will end by game time we will not cancel the games, in these cases, the coaches will be responsible for cancelling games. If the ref shows up please pay him/her. 

Referees: The referee fee is $24/game. Each team is responsible for paying ½ of the fee to the referee prior to the game, prior to the start of the game. Please pay the referees in cash (no checks) and give them correct change. If the game is called off, referees still get paid. No referees are required for Kindergarten/1st grade games (coaches will referee those games). 

Home Team Responsibilities: It is the responsibility of the home team to have corner flags set up by 5:20, and to supply a game ball. 

Basic Rules:

  • Throw-in: happens where the ball goes out on the side lines.
  • Goal Kick: Happens when the offensive team kicks the ball out at the defenses end of the field. Kick is taken from the smaller box for 2/3 & 4/5 grade fields and the semi-circle on the Kindergarten/1 grade fields.
  • Corner Kick: Occurs when the defense kicks the ball out of their own end line. Kick takes place from the corner on the side the ball was kicked out.
  • Kindergarten/1 Coach ref: Call hand balls, out of bounds and tripping fouls mostly.
  • 2/3 & 4/5 Coaches: We will not be calling off-sides as it is hard for a single referee to call.
  • 2/3 & 4/5 Coaches: Please allow the Refs to call the games! If we hear that coaches are yelling at refs, you will be asked not to coach anymore. Remember that these are mostly children refereeing. If you have a problem with a referee, please email Mike Jones.
  • Substitutions will be allowed on the following:
    • 1 – Both goal kicks
    • 2 – Own throw-in
    • 3 – At half time
    • 4 – After an injury
    • 5 – After a goal has been scored
