FALL 2024 Recreation Soccer Program


Please carefully read the below information before registering for the Clifton Stallions Recreation Program. You will need to accept a waiver that you have read the below:

Soccer is a TEAM sport. For Grades 2-8, if you are aware ahead of time that the player will not be able to participate in the games each week, please reconsider registering. (We understand illness). When the players registers but does not show to the games each week, the player is leaving the team with less players . If a few players do not show to the games, this is not fair to the players who do show up for the competition game.  While Clifton Stallions wants every one to participate and be placed on a team, the club does not want a team to be playing down without enough players each week.

  • If a player wears a sweatshirt, the hood must be tucked into the soccer jersey
  • NO jewelry at all - watches and especially earrings.

SATURDAY PROGRAM CANCELLATIONS:

The Clifton Stallions recreation program continues when the weather is cold, warm, raining and windy.
The Saturday portion of the program can only be cancelled after a Clifton Stallion board decision is made due to extreme weather conditions.
If there is a possibility of cancelling the Saturday portion of the program, a decision will be emailed to registered participants by 8am the morning in question.
Notifications will also be posted on the Facebook and Instagram page.
Do not assume games are cancelled. We do not want a team to forfeit because they did not have enough participants.

WAIVER ABOUT FALSE INFORMATION:

During the registration, you will need to sign a waiver that the information entered during registration is true and accurate.
Any registration which contains false information and/or false documents uploaded will be removed from the Clifton Stallions Recreation Program immediately without refund.

Please understand, Clifton Stallions board members do not like to be required to view over 1000 registrations but to keep each player in the correct division, we need to have documents uploaded. We do not want a Clifton resident/student not to be able to participate because an out of town player took their spot. This is why we need documents uploaded with the name of the school and player name. Clifton Stallions is responsible for keeping the program to the players/students of Clifton without players from other towns. We understand that parents do not want to find the documents and upload them each season but this is a requirement to make sure a 2nd grader is not being placed on a 8th grade team.
