Update for our Strikers Families (Monday, May 11, 200) -


Training for these Strikers teams can begin the week of May 11:  U13B, U16B, U18B, and U17G.  These teams are dual-registered since they are State Cup teams, and are currently covered by IYSA insurance.


Training for SDP and all other Strikers teams can begin the week of May 18.  These teams are registered with US Club Soccer and their insurance will reactivate on May 18.


We are approved for training during this Phase, but not scrimmages or games.  Teams must wait to train until the dates listed above.  More information will be coming soon.


Rick will be sending training instructions out to coaches early next week.  These must be followed carefully, in order for training to continue.


Thank you all for your support of Sandpoint Strikers during this difficult time!  We are excited for our teams to be back on the pitch!


Please contact Rick Mullins, DOC, at (208) 818-1790 or doc@sandpointsoccer.com for more information.

Dear Kick Start Soccer Parents:

Thank you so much for your patience, as SSA deliberated on whether we could safely offer a spring soccer program for children ages 2 and 3.


The SSA Board of Directors has discussed this at length, and has determined we cannot offer a program to this very young age group of soccer players at this time, as it would be very difficult to obey the governor’s social distancing order.


We have decided to move our spring Kick Start Soccer program to July 14-15-16, during our Summer Soccer Camp (June Camp has been moved to July).  Kick Start players will have a camp session from 9:00 – 10:00AM (check-in 9:00; field time 9:15 – 10:00), on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.  Players will not only receive their Kick Start Soccer shirt, but also a soccer ball!


We have 27 children enrolled in Kick Start Soccer this spring.  We hope you can attend in July!  If this does not work for you, please contact me.  We can offer you a full credit for our fall Kick Start Soccer season, or if needed, a full refund of your $50 fees.


Thank you for your support of Sandpoint Soccer!  This has been a difficult time for us, as we want very much to offer soccer programs to all children, but are restricted due to COVID-19 and the current Phase regulations.

Rec League Soccer Families –


Thanks so much for waiting through this time period with us, as we find out whether we have fields available to use for Rec League Soccer, and whether the social distancing rules will allow us to have a spring season.


We are still waiting to hear back from LPOSD, but we do believe that we have school district fields available to us starting May 25.  We use local grade schools for our Rec League Soccer program, and so need the approval of the school district prior to use.


Rec League Soccer will start May 25 and run through June 27.  This will be a modified spring season, based on the social distancing order that is still in place through June.  Spring Season will be two practices per week, but no scrimmages or games.  There will be no final tournament day, or medals or prizes.  If the social distancing order is relaxed mid-June, we may be able to have scrimmages and games for the last two weeks.


Coaches will be given detailed information on how to conduct practices.  We will also provide coaches with practice drills that can be used during this time.  Coaches will meet at the SSA Office the week of May 18, in small sessions, to go over spring season, and pick up their team packets.


Parents will turn in a signed form each practice, stating that their child is symptom-free.  Players will bring their own ball and water bottle to each practice.


Players will be excited to get out on the field with their friends!  Coaches can make practices fun and exciting, and players will enjoy running, passing, shooting, juggling, and being out in fresh air and sunshine!  Let’s give our children a little bit of “normal” this spring!


We have almost 400 players registered for spring season.  Parents have until this Friday, May 15, to inform us if they do not want to participate in spring season.  They will need to email us their child’s full name and full date of birth, and let us know if they would like to move their registration to Summer Soccer Camp (July 13 – 17) or the Fall 2020 season.  If you plan to participate in spring season, there is no need to contact us. 


Some of you have been asking about June Soccer Camp.  We have moved this to the week of July 13 – 17, and are now calling this “Summer Soccer Camp.”  You can register for camp online at www.sandpointsoccer.com, or stop by our office to register.  Camp is only $65 and includes a camp t-shirt and soccer ball.  It truly is a super-fun week for our kids!  Sign up with a friend and give your kids summers soccer camp to look forward to.


Thank you all for your support of Sandpoint Rec League during this difficult time!  We are excited for our players to be back on the pitch!
