Rebel Rec FAQs

What is Recreational Soccer?


Our recreational soccer program is a program that is open to all players from age 3 to those in 4th grade. There are no tryouts or cuts. You sign your players up and they are placed on a team. The program is a 6-week season that will consist of team practices, team games and an end of the season jamboree tournament.




How many times per week do they play?


Our season is designed to provide every player the foundational training and skills of soccer as well as keep it fun and entertaining for the kids (and parents)! Every week there will be two days of playing- one during the week and one on Saturday. The day during the week will be the same for the entire season depending on their age division.




How are the age divisions split up?


We group players by age to encourage fair balance of play and levels of development. Groups of teams will be divided as follows:

  • Age 3 and 4 year olds
  • Age 5 and Kindergarteners
  • 1st grade and 2nd grade
  • 3rd and 4th grade




Can I request that my child be placed on a team with their friends?


Yes, they can. They can enter in their friends name during the registration process but there are a few rules around requests to avoid confusion and teams being unevenly placed. Please note the following:

  • For friends to be placed together both families must request each other during the registration process
  • There is a max of only two friend requests per player
  • If the friend does not request to be paired with your child in return, the pairing will not be completed
  • If there are carpool needs then it is highly recommended you use the two friend requests to accomodate
  • There will be no exceptions to this rule to take more than two friend requests




What happens if COVID restrictions do not allow the season to start by April?


If Region 1 (Whatcom County) does not enter into Phase 2 by April 6 we will use the information available at that time to determine if a delay or cancellation of the season is needed. We will communicate to all registered families of planned next steps. No money is taken at registration so there will be no need for refunds or cancellation of payments. An invoice will be sent to each family for $40 when we can confirm the season will begin as planned.




What equipment will my player need to play?


The following items are highly recommended to participate and keep your player safe and in the best position to learn.

  • Soccer specific cleats
  • Shinguards
  • Socks to wear up to the players knee that covers their entire shinguard. Some shinguards come with a built in sock
  • Shorts
  • Jersey will be provided as part of registration
  • Water bottle to bring to each training and game
We also recommend that you visit Soccer City in Bellingham (next to Best Buy) to find all your soccer equipment needs. They have been a strong supporter of North County Alliance and are one of the reasons we can offer registration fees so low.




Who coaches the teams?


Like all recreational soccer programs, Rebel Rec is coached by parent or community volunteers. Each team will need an assigned coach to help manage training sessions and games. We look for a parent of one of the players on the team to volunteer. To make it easy on our volunteer coaches we offer a few things: Waived player registration fee Full training session plans with drills and instructions Training equipment (cones and pinnies) We also encourage our older NCA players in our club program to take the opportunity to teach the game that they love. This gives our high school aged players a great way to give back to the community.




How many players on a team and play on the field at once?


To help encourage that all players are active and involved in the games we set different playing formations per age division:

  • Age 3/4: 3v3 with no goalies, 6 total players per team
  • Age 5/K: 4v4 with no goalies, 8 total players per team
  • 1/2 grade: 5v5 with goalies, 8 total players per team
  • 3/4 grade: 7v7 with goalies, 10-12 total players per team

REBEL REC PROGRAM LEADERS

howells%202_edited.jpg

 Kim and Josh Howell have been with the club since day 1 and we are incredibly fortunate to have them leading our new recreational program.

Josh has an extensive coaching and playing background in soccer and he will be bringing that same expertise and organization to give our rec coaches and players to set a strong foundation of soccer.

Kim has a passion and knack for logistics, coordination and bringing complex situations together for the benefit of the community and families. Her ability to craft an experience for others is unmatched and a perfect fit for creating a program that will keep players and families coming back season after season.

We are so thankful for the Howells lending their gifts to the club.
