KICK Childhood Cancer! December 20th and January 9-11th- soccer communities from Houston and surrounding areas will come together as one to help in the fight against pediatric cancer. KICK Cancer Soccer Camp, founded by Glenn Davis, is a camp with a purpose with the mission to raise awareness and funds for pediatric cancer research. Camps are run by local youth soccer clubs and will be held at nine locations in and around the Houston area. Go www.kickcancercamps.com for information and registration.
As a reminder, team deposits for the Spring Season are due by Sunday, January 4, 2015. Team account ledgers will be updated with the $250.00 deposit amount but you can prepay your team account at any time.
Our League does not reschedule due to insufficient players on game day. If a team knows that they cannot field a team for an upcoming match, they need to notify the Scheduler (email@example.com) and Referee Liaison (firstname.lastname@example.org) 72 hours or sooner to avoid a fine of $100. This policy has been updated to prevent opposing teams to show up with a last minute forfeit. The earlier a team can notify the League the more of a chance we have to avoid Field and Referee assignment fees.
Call the TORSO Hotline (832-487-8786) to check park/field closures before driving to the field. If the hotline states that a field is open as of 11:00am on game day, teams must go to the field. The hotline is updated by 11am each Sunday - the hotline may be updated before 11:00am but 11am is the official posting time. TORSO is encouraging all players and referees to use this text message based communication tool for field availability status notifications. There is no charge to sign-up for this service and it will overlap the Weather Line. If you haven't signed up yet, please do it today - it only takes a minute to register. Sign-up now.
Team managers looking for players to fill roster positions should access our prospective player database. It contains both male and female players that want to play with TORSO. Managers should contact these individuals directly and let us know when they join your team or are no longer interested. Find a player now.
