Thank you for volunteering to coach a Falmouth Soccer Club (FSC) travel soccer team! We hope you and the players find it a rewarding experience. This information is intended to help you assemble and register your team for the upcoming season. It lists important dates and procedures you must follow to ensure your team is qualified for South Coast Soccer League (SCSL) play in the spring. Please pay careful attention to the dates – it may seem there is a lot to do in a short period of time, but if you follow the schedule it will go quite smoothly and we can all enjoy the year.
