We register and manage teams in external leagues in addition to our internal programs. Herein you will find our teams and the details for each league. Some teams have structured training with coaches (such as our EDSA Mens). All teams are invited to coached sessions as a bonus. During these sessions there are drills conducted for about 20 minutes and then the groups split up into scrimmages.

Our goals is to build the Spartan family with teams everywhere. As you age out of a division you will have a team to migrate to. Lots of soccer. One Spartan family.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • I want to make a team but I don’t want the hassle of chasing down fees

Each player can pay online towards team fees as an option. You don’t chase anyone.

  • That’s pretty cool you came up with the 4 week, 2x games/week as a season called a flight

Thanks, we think so, too. But… what’s your question?

  • What if some of my roster drop out or can’t afford the player fees?

Recruit and replace. We manage a wait list, too.

  • What if our team can only play 2 of the 5 flights?

That can be done. We designed the program to best handle the pandemic uncertainties whilst giving max game time for players in concentrated pockets.

  • I registered my team elsewhere, but we want Spartan now.

We hear that often and thanks. Can you get a refund? We have rapid onboarding to help your team join.

  • 18 players required?

No, you can have a smaller roster.

  • Can I have more than 18?

No, but you can recruit more players and replace as needed for each flight of games.

  • Can I charge players more than what is posted towards the team fee?

You charge what you want. Be upfront with your players.

  • Can I subsidize the team fees and spread the balance amongst players?

Yes and we can set it up as you wish for online player payments.

  • What if there is a shutdown mid way through a flight?

We delay until they allow us to continue.

  • How does a shut down overlap with the next flight?

It doesn’t. Unplayed games per flight are applied against the next flight.

  • What if the whole summer season is under pandemic and we only play 1 month?

That’s why we devised the flight concept so that we can pivot quickly, enjoy games in a compressed format, and bunker down as per AHS.

  • Do our players get to play for free in the cohort program on the other days?

Yes.

  • Do the players in the cohort program get to play as a sub on our team if we’re short?

No. The cohort players would need to upgrade. You can recruit them.

  • I have a team of 12, how does the team fee work?

The team fee doesn’t change.
