Frequently asked questions:

  1. I do not see my daughter’s birth year tryout time?  If you do not see your child’s birth year and gender listed, unfortunately there were not sufficient numbers to field a tryout for the Spring Pilot Program.     
  2. Does my son/ daughter need to attend both tryouts?  It is highly recommended that players attend both tryouts but we understand conflicts come up.  Each player MUST attend 1 tryout.  There will not be any exceptions for this Spring Pilot Program. 
  3. My child is committed to play for another club in the Spring 2019.  Can he or she play both?  If you child is committed to play for another select team in the Spring 2019 he or she is ineligible for the Indian Hill Soccer Academy due to conflict in tournament registrations, and should not attend tryouts.  Depending on learning experiences from the Spring Pilot Program, we expect that tryouts for the Fall 2019 will include players who are choosing between clubs for the following year.

Concussion Legislation & what it means to IHRC Soccer
by posted 05/28/2014

In various parts of the country, states are introducing laws regarding concussion and youth sports; Ohio passed its concussion bill on December 20th, 2012.  The bill defines the responsibility of players, parents, coaches, referees and league officials when a player is believed to be exhibiting the signs, symptoms or behavior of a person who may have sustained a concussion.
A concussion is a brain injury and all brain injuries are SERIOUS. A concussion may be caused by a bump, blow, jolt to the head, face, neck or elsewhere on the body with an impulsive force transmitted to the head. The injury can range from mild to severe and disrupt the way the brain normally works. Although many concussions are mild, concussions of any type are serious and can result in severe complications if not managed properly. This can include prolonged brain damage and even death.
Laws such as the one passed in Ohio, contain four main provisions, these are as follows.
  • SAY Soccer Districts and Areas are responsible and must make available to every player and their parents an informational sheet, that has been developed by their State Department of Health. This informational sheet is available to you on your player's team website from the Documents option of the team menu.  Please take the time to review it. You can also locate the informational sheet here:
  • SAY Soccer will provide an informational page on their website of recommendations for all coaches and referees advising them of their individual responsibilities. This has been communicated to IHRC coaches and referees.
  • Many states are now asking that all coaches and referees to take an online training certification before they are allowed to work with youth soccer players. IHRC has asked its coaches and referees to become certified prior to coaching this spring 2014 season.
The final part of the law involves the removal of the player and the return to play. Key points in this are as follows:
  • Coaches, referees, or officials must remove from play an athlete exhibiting the signs and symptoms of a concussionduring practice or a game.
  • The athlete cannot return to play on the same day that he she is removed after exhibiting signs of a concussion.
  • The athlete is not permitted to return to play until he/she has been assessed by a physician or licensed health care provider approved by the Youth sports organization and received written clearance.
