Welcome to The New Prague Soccer Club. We serve the South Metro and strive to offer a fun and competitive soccer experience.
SPRING/SUMMER REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN! SEE BELOW AND REGISTRATION TAB FOR DETAILS
IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM NEW PRAGUE SOCCER CLUB PRESIDENT REGARDING COVID-19 PLAN
NEW PRAGUE SOCCER CLUB IS COMMITTED TO PROVIDING A SAFE AND HEALTHY ENVIRONMENT FOR OUR YOUTH PLAYERS, MEMBER FAMILIES, COACHES AND VOLUNTEERS (MEMBERS). TO ENSURE WE HAVE A SAFE AND HEALTHY ENVIRONMENT, NPSC HAS A COVID-19 PREPAREDNESS PLAN WHICH INCLUDES FOLLOWING AND ADHERING TO THE MINNESOTA YOUTH SOCCER ASSOCIATION "RETURN TO PLAY" PLAN.
CALL FOR SITE SUPERVISORS In a collaboration effort with the school district and other sport associations in our community, the club is asking for four to five volunteers to take on the role of being a site supervisor during the times that the soccer club is renting gym space for the Futsal program and winter training activities. In order to be able to use the school district’s gym spaces to have indoor training opportunities for our players and to be able to host the winter Futsal program, we are required to have a site supervisor present during the times that the club is renting gym space. Coaches working with our players during a designated time are not eligible to be the site supervisor at the same time, so we are asking for help from our parents to ensure that our players have opportunities to continue training and participate in activities to improve their skills and keep them active and engaged in the club. To put it plainly, if we do not have site supervisors, then we will not be allowed to use the gym spaces provided by the school district and we will face a scenario where we will not be able to offer indoor activities and trainings for our players this winter or spring when the 2021 season begins. We ask that you consider volunteering an hour or two of your time every 1-2 weeks on Saturdays in December and January for Futsal and having some flexibility to be available for trainings and practices in February/March/April so that our club can continue to offer winter opportunities for our kids to play.
SPRING/SUMMER SOCCER REGISTRATION
The New Prague Soccer Club is excited to announce that registration for the spring/summer season of 2021 is now open!
Some important details for registration and team formation this year:
1. Player assessments, if you opt in, will be held in December at the Soccer Blast pending no new changes in restrictions currently in place during the pandemic.
2. All players will need new uniforms. No exceptions.
3. We are offering the Early Bird discount again, which will be live through November 31st. However, to be able to participate in player assessments in December, you MUST register by November 31st, 2020. No exceptions.
4. If you are interested in coaching this spring season, please keep an eye out for further information that will be forthcoming in the near future.
Please send inquiries and questions to: email@example.com
When you email the uniform coordinator for a jersey number, you need to include your player's first and last name, along with their birth year. Again we are not able to accomodate jersey number requests, even if it's a number that your player has had for multiple seasons. Jersey numbers are offered in a limited range and as players get older, it does mean that a younger player could have the same number as well. The club has to make sure that there is enough of a numbers and age gap between these players so that there isn't a chance that both players could end up on the same team. We do appreciate your understanding and flexibility.
Also - do not use the link from the 2020 season emails that were sent out last fall or winter for registration or payment emails from TeamSnap. That link goes to the registration form for the 2020 season. Due to a company policy, TeamSnap does not allow individual clubs to disable their registration links permanently if refunds or credits were issued, even if the registration form is closed. Because of this, the link for the old registration form will still work if you clicked on it using previous emails from TeamSnap. However, your player will not be registered for the 2021 season. If your payment confirmation page states that you registered for the 2020 summer season, please email the club at firstname.lastname@example.org immediately, as your registration will have to be cancelled and you will need to register again with the 2021 link.
Please consider volunteering to be a team manager for your player’s team – managers play a valuable role in facilitating team communications, receiving information about tournaments/games, and other backend items that help keep the team running smoothly. If you would be open to helping out as a manager, please email Brandi Weckman at: email@example.com
If you are interested in coaching, we are looking for assistant coaches at all ages and head coaches in ages 9U to 12U. If interested, please email Cam Stolz at: firstname.lastname@example.org

ANSWERS TO RECENT QUESTIONS
In recent weeks, the NPSC board have received several questions and inquiries in regards to the final decision made to cancel the soccer summer season. It is our hope that this message will answer your questions and resolve any confusions you may have.
Informal gatherings - NPSC is bound by our governing organization to follow state guidelines for gatherings. As we don't know what is safe, we cannot be a part of any promoting of get-togethers, or provide any information to allow for such planning to occur. We encourage our families to continue to follow the best practices to keep their families safe during this time, and as information updates and guidances change to allow for gathering in which we can host informal practices or scrimmage, we will happily organize events to allow for our players to get some time on the fields.
Uniforms - We understand that for some families, uniforms were purchased for a season that ultimately ended up being cancelled. We recognize that every family in our club has some expense sunken into their player's uniform for this season and this is an unfortunate part of cancellations that we will not able to provide a resolution that satisfies everyone. After lengthy discussions and reviews with our supplier and contracts for uniforms, it has been determined that the best course of action is to honor our contracts and move forward with a new uniform cycle for next year. We are not able to provide any uniform refunds, and after the fall season is complete, we will enter in a new uniform cycle and all players need a new uniform for the 2021 & 2022 season cycle.
Refunds - Most families should have received or see their refunds coming through. For those who made payments, you will receive your refund in 4 payments. For those of you who made one payment, you will receive one refund. ALL refunds will be less $8.00/player to cover the fees that the club paid prior to the season being cancelled. There are families who made payments more than six months ago, which is outside TeamSnap's window of refunding through their system. If you had made payments more than six months ago, TeamSnap is initiating manual refunds through their payor system (WePay) and NPSC has given them permission to do so. Those payments make take longer than the 15-21 days originally set by TeamSnap. If by June 30th, you have NOT received all of your refunds, please send a message to email@example.com and we will request an investigation from TeamSnap to resolve it.
Challenger Soccer Camp - if you registered for the original week of soccer camp (the week of June 8th), your registration will automatically transfer over to the July dates of July 6th - July 10th. There is nothing for you to do except show up on the first day of camp. If you want to cancel your registration, please contact Challenger through your registration confirmation email and inquire. NPSC is not a part of the registration process, so we are not able to process or answer those types of inquires in regards to Challenger Pro Camp.
We thank everyone for their patience and understanding over the last few months. This has been unprecented times and we understand that everyone was impacted significantly in some way. We hope everyone continues to stay safe and healthy and we hope to see you for fall ball and next year.
