I've registered my child, now what?
First off, thank you. Now, sit back and relax as we compile all of the registrations. Once the majority of the registrations are in, we will then hand over the team rosters and contact information to the assigned coach. Coaches will then contact you directly a couple of weeks before the start of the season with team and practice details.
Will the league provide uniforms?
Yes, your child will receive a full uniform including jersey, shorts and socks.
How many games are there and how long is the season?
There are 10 games over a 12 to 14 week season. With the possibility of extra playoff games.
Where are games played?
We currently have two regions open for registration, so depending on what side of town you live on you can register to play at the New Silver Bowl Park on Boulder Highway and Russell (Henderson Alliance) or at Desert Breeze Park on Durango and Spring Mtn. (Southwest Alliance).
What days are games played?
Depends. For the Fall 2013 season, games on the East side will mostly be played on Saturday mornings with potential Thursday evening games due to special events at the park. The West region has played games on Tuesday evenings between the hours of 6pm and 8pm in the past but the Fall season is yet to be determined.
What days are practices?
Practice times and dates vary and are dictated by each individual coach. Alliance holds park permits for Monday-Thursday from 5pm-10pm and Saturday from 8am-5pm. Practices are only able to be held between these times.
Do I need to purchase any equipment?
Yes, players will need... Cleats, Shinguards, a Ball, Practice Socks and of course, a Water Bottle.
If my child has friends, classmates or relatives that want to be on the same team, can they?
Yes, absolutely. We encourage players to invite their friends to join their team. Make sure to express each others names on the registration form under the "Please place me on the same team as" field. Also, players must be within the same age division.
Does Alliance play with 11 players on the field?
No, depending on your child's age, the numbers will vary. The youngest age will play 4 vs. 4 (no goalie) and the oldest kids will play 8 vs. 8 (with goalie).
Does Alliance play on full-size fields?
No, we believe at this level of play it is better for kids to play on smaller fields with a smaller amount of players. This way, players are able to receive the ball a lot more, allowing them to develop their skills sooner.
Is Alliance a co-ed league?
Yes, Alliance is a co-ed league, however, coaches are allowed to form an all girls or all boys team. They just need to know that they will be playing against the opposite gender.
Is Alliance a competitive league?
No, Alliance is a recreational league, however, we do keep score as well as records of wins, draws and losses. At this time, our skill levels are beginner to intermediate.

Are Alliance coaches paid?
No, Alliance is a non-profit youth organization that relies heavily on the support of volunteer coaches. We encourage parents and other community members to get involved as much as possible. As always, children of parent coaches receive free registration.
How do I become a coach?
It's easy, just visit the "Coaches"
tab at the top of the homepage and complete the form. From there, an Alliance representative will contact you shortly after. Feel free to contact us for more information.
What do I need to coach a team?
Time, a commitment to the kids, and of course a clean background check. All coaches are subject to a mandatory background check before the start of the season. Coaches will be asked to conduct one or two practices a week and one game. The league can help with some equipment and will provide players. Contact us for more details.
