Children’s Soccer

First Presbyterian Church of Nashville soccer leagueSpring 2023 Soccer Season

First Presbyterian Church has a long history of using our beautiful property to encourage playfulness and relational connection to enhance faith development in people of all ages. The act of playing together can teach us many things about ourselves, our neighbors, and our creator. Athletics can be a beautiful vehicle for growth and discipleship. Because of this, we believe children’s soccer is an important part of our mission here at FPC and we are excited about the fall soccer season.

During the soccer season, we will host seven Saturday gamedays. All games will be held on the FPC campus between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. on Saturday game days.

  • Team & Season Communications

  • Practice Times and Locations
    • Practice times and locations are set by coaches.
  • Player Equipment Needed
    • FPC will provide jerseys for each team. Parents will need to provide cleats, shin guards, water bottles, and a ball for their child.
  • Updated Jerseys
    • Families who have been around for a while will notice some changes this season.
    • All divisions will be using the same, reversible jersey. One side will be navy blue and the other will be gray. 
    • As we know that many teams enjoy having unique designs, we have no issue with teams creatively decorating their jerseys! For numbering and lettering on jerseys, we recommend contacting Cheryl Hanvey at Second Generation Graphics at 615-668-9337 or [email protected] 
    • To keep gamedays simple and avoid delays in start times: if a team appears on the left column of the schedule, they will wear grey on that gameday. If a team is on the right side, they will wear navy blue on that gameday.

Coach Information 

We are recruiting coaches for all age groups! Coach registration closes March 9. Here’s what you need to know to register as a coach:

  • Coaches must complete a separate registration to create a team. (Login to your FPC account, if you have one. This will make registration easier.)
  • We will try to accommodate team member/roster requests to make it easier for carpooling, existing school relationships, etc., but we cannot close any teams to children who are not currently connected to a team. Please have a list of your preferred team members ready at registration.
  • Our Recreation Team will review your roster submission, and team rosters will be finalized and released by March 17.
  • Coaches Orientation Meeting will be held Wednesday, March 22nd, at 6:00 p.m. via Zoom.
  • Jerseys will be available for pickup March 20-24, from 9:00 a.m.–4:00 p.m., at the church office. If you are unable to pick up jerseys that week, all remaining jerseys will be in the Cannon Center on the first gameday.
  • Coaches will receive a 50% discount on registration for their children, so complete the Coach registration first to receive the promo code for player registration.
  • As you plan your team’s practice schedule, please note that practices will not be on the FPC campus this season as we continue to improve the quality of the fields for gamedays.
  • All coaches must complete a background check.
