Welcome to the Green Bay Kickers Soccer Club!
The Green Bay Kickers has been serving the west side of Green Bay since 1971. We are a not-for-profit organization who provides the opportunity for boys and girls ages 4 to 18 to play soccer.
The Green Bay Kickers is associated with SAY (Soccer Association for Youth), a national organization, and is a member of the United States Soccer Federation. SAY philosophy is to have fun while learning soccer techniques through positive reinforcement. Because of that philosophy, all players are guaranteed to play regardless of skill level, or if they have never played soccer before.
Our season runs during the summer months of June and July.
If you are interested in learning more about the Green Bay Kickers, you can contact one of the Board Members using the "Contact Us" link on the left or by attending a Board Meeting. Our Board of Directors meets the second Monday of each month at Kroll's West. Please check our calendar for any changes.
For ages under 12:
In the case of 4 year olds 5 year olds, where there are no referees on-site, the coaches will decide whether the game should be cancelled. All other age groups should report to their scheduled fields to see if games are being played.
Heat: If the heat index is 100 or higher, then all games for ages 4-11 will be cancelled!
Storms: In the event of a storm, play will be suspended and will not be resumed until 30-minutes after the last sighting of lightning or the last sound of thunder heard.
The decision to cancel a game due to weather rests solely with the referee and is made at the field at game time.
If a parent requests that their child leave the game because they are uncomfortable with the playing conditions, the coach must honor the parents request to remove the child from play.
For ages 12+, follow the official Bay-Lakes policy:
1. Extreme heat: When the temperature is above 90 degrees AND the heat index is at a danger level, 5:30 or earlier games will be suspended by "Bay-lakes" or the referee and may be rescheduled. Later matches may still be played but should incorporate longer and/or more frequent breaks. Plenty of fluids should be available.
2. Extreme Cold: When the temperature drops below 30 degrees AND the wind chill index indicates a temperature below zero degrees, then the match should be suspended by "Bay-Lakes" or the referee and may be rescheduled at another time.
3. Lightning/Thunder: In the event of a storm, play must be stopped and suspended by the referee at the field until the danger has passed using the following criteria as a minimum.
a. Sighting of a lightning flash or the hearing of the associated thunder shall be reason to stop and suspend a game.
b. play shall not be resumed prior to 30-minutes after the last sighting of lightning or the last sound of thunder heard.
4. Visibility: When standing at one goal you can�t see the other goal, the game may be suspended by the referee at the field.
5. Wind: When the ball is placed on level ground and it does not remain stationary, the game may be suspended by the referee at the field.
6. Field Conditions: When a field is in poor or dangerous playing condition, games may be suspended or relocated by "Bay-Lakes" a district or the referee.
If a parent requests that their child leave the game because they are uncomfortable with the playing conditions the coach must honor the parents request to remove the child from play.
Updates related to weather (if any) may be communicated on "RAINOUT" and on the bay-lakes.org website. However, please be aware that games are normally only called off at GAME TIME due to weather conditions AT GAME TIME. If you have a game scheduled, YOU SHOULD ARRIVE AT YOUR GAME and see what determination is made by the referees AT GAME TIME. They may elect to call the game, play the game, or delay the start of the game. games can be delayed by more than 45 minutes and still play half of the game, which is enough for an official game. Coaches MAY NOT cancel games.
If you are a REFEREE, you must arrive at the game on time (10-15 minutes before the scheduled start time) and make a determination as to whether the game can be played. Remember that you may delay the start and still have an official game if at least 1/2 of the game can be played. If early game(s) are cancelled, YOU MUST STILL BE AT THE FIELD FOR THE START OF LATER GAME(S) to again determine if the game can be played. If you are at the field at the scheduled start time and the game is cancelled, you will be paid. If you are not at the field at the scheduled start time, you will not be paid.
If games are called off early in the day (items 1, 2, 6), you may receive notification via "RAINOUT", and on the front page of bay-lakes.org website. This has occurred in past years due to poor conditions of fields, extreme heat or extreme cold but it is rare for this to occur. Bay-Lakes games are played across a wide geographic area (Wrightstown, De Pere, Seymour, Pulaski, Green Bay, etc), so the only reasonable way to handle game cancellations is to allow the referees to make the determination at game time.
