Fury FAQ's
Will my player get an equal chance to play while on a Fury team?

Every player who has been offered and accepted a position on a Fury team has demonstrated the skills and competencies our coaches believe are required to play at a competitive level.  Fury teams do play in competitive leagues where winning is one of the objectives, and coaches must constantly assess player development and performance and weigh that against the overall team needs.  There could be times when a player is provided less or very little playing time in a match, and this is entirely at the coaches' discretion.  Your player's coach, the Fury Director or the Club Technical Director will be happy to discuss with you and your player what the player can do to improve their performance, and in turn, earn more time on the pitch.

How do I know if the game has been cancelled due to rain?

We recommend that you contact your coach as soon as possible.  Coaches and/or team managers are in contact with VSL and ADSL officials who manage match cancellation on an hour by hour basis in the event of pending or current inclement weather.  The home page of the PSA website provides a convenient field-by-field status of closures on the right side of the page, which is updated typically by 3:00 PM on weekdays and earlier on weekends when we anticipate the majority of our travel play.

What equipment do I need?

All players must...

  • Wear shin guards, which must be covered by socks.  Players who present themselves at practice wearing shin guards without socks will not be permitted to participate in practice, and jeopardize their opportunity to participate in matches due to missing practice.
  • Bring water to every game and practice.
  • Wear soccer cleats, not any cleats designed for any other sport, especially "front cleat" shoes such as baseball or softball cleats.
  • Bring their own soccer ball.  It is expected they will need a ball for home practice, so bringing the ball to practice ensures their comfort with the ball, responsibility, and lowers overall Fury operating costs.

How often will a player practice?

Fury teams practice at least twice weekly.  The practice day is based on the coaches' availability and field availability.  Players are expected to attend practice without exception.  If extenuating circumstances mean that a player cannot attend, the player must contact your coach and advise them prior to practice.  This is not simply courteous; coaches prepare their practice plans based upon the number of players on their roster, and advising them helps them plan accordingly.

How much does it cost to play Fury?

The Player fees for each season are currently $700.00 (this includes the Fall and Spring outdoor season and a Winter indoor season for U14 and below - U15 and above do not play a Spring season, and their fees are commensurately lower).  This remains one of the best bargains for youth soccer in the area.  Players will be responsible for the cost of their uniform (approximately $125.00 for two jerseys, two pairs of shorts, and two pairs of socks).  Players must have cleats and shin guards as well, and may consider optional team-related Fury attire and equipment such as practice shirts, warm-up jackets and pants, and backpacks.
