We finally made it! The support of our members and community over the last 5 crazy months has been absolutely amazing. It is clear that a whole bunch of you are ready to get back on the soccer fields, and we are too! Fall 2020 Registration is now open!
We’ve included basic information about our programs and fall registration below. We would highly encourage taking the time to review our initial Fall 2020 Program Informational Email for more details about what this season will look like as we all progress back to “normal” life. We also have a Fall 2020 Program FAQ on our website that is updated regularly with frequently asked questions.
*** Registration for our Fall 2020 Season will open August 5, 2020 and ends August 19, 2020. Late Registration will start August 20th and end on August 26th. Because of field capacity, available coaches, and potential age group caps due to COVID-19, late registration may not be able to be accommodated. **
This Fall we have 4 Recreational Program options available:
Our Pre-Academy program is a professionally designed and coached program delivered via our partnership with Mighty Kicks Southern Kentucky. As a key part of the SKY Player Pathway, the Pre-Academy program is for our youngest players, and provides kids a fun, positive, first soccer experience that progresses players each season and year to prepare them technically and mentally for our YDP program. Players are taught skills and life lessons, while developing a love for the game under a player-first development framework, in alignment with the U.S. Soccer player development framework.
The Pre-Academy Goal Mornings program is the same age and developmentally appropriate curriculum as the Pre-Academy program, it just meets during the morning rather than early evening and weekends.
For the Fall 2020 season, Pre-Academy will include birth years 2018-2015. The cost will be $70 and will include a Pre-Academy t-shirt.
Junior Academy Youth Development Program (YDP)
The Junior Academy Youth Development Program is a bridge from Pre-Academy to our SKY Academy with all three programs developed and delivered by professionally licensed coaches. Following the SKY Player Pathway, players are pushed to reach their individual potential through technical training, a competitive playing environment, and opportunities to compete at the highest levels available to players in the region. SKY Academy prepares players to be successful scholar-athletes in high school and college through education on healthy lifestyle choices, the college recruiting process, and serving the community we live in.
For the Fall 2020 season, the Junior Academy Youth Development Program will include birth years 2015-2013. The cost for the Junior Academy Youth Development Program will be $150. This will include two training sessions a week from one of our professionally licensed coaches, and one game a week when allowed by State return to play guidelines, or a 3rd training session should games not be allowed. Uniform purchase required if you haven’t already purchased one.
Our programs are not just for the player with high school, college or professional aspirations. SKY Soccer Club utilizes the beautiful game of soccer to provide rewarding and fun experiences for all players. Our Recreational program is the largest in the state and our nearly 200 volunteer coaches foster teamwork, sportsmanship, and fair play for kids of all ages and abilities.
For the Fall 2020 season, our Recreational program will be offered to players with birth years ranging from 2014-2003. The cost will be $70. Uniform purchase required if you haven’t already purchased one.

Referees and Coaches
Delivering as many soccer opportunities to our community as possible SKY Soccer Club also provides a pathway for both referees and coaches. We offer referee opportunities at every level as well as opportunities for coaches to develop their skills and teach the game.
If you have a joy and passion for children or soccer, we need you as a volunteer. Regardless of your ability level or knowledge, there are volunteer openings for you.
Become a coach! Our seasonal coaches meeting will be virtually this year. For the safety of your player, all coaches are required to sign off on a background check via KYSA bylaw. Coaches are also required to participate in an online concussion training course and SafeSports online training class.
If you are interested in becoming a coach, you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. Already have your mind made up? Register now to coach one of our teams for the 2020 Fall Rec. season here: https://skysoccer.demosphere-secure.com/_registration.

Not quite sure you want to coach? Sign up to be a Team Manager! A Team Manager helps coaches with communication to the other parents in regards to schedule, field location, and uniform color!
Want to be a referee? If you are interested in becoming a referee, email email@example.com for class and training opportunities.
As previously announced we have new Adidas jerseys this year and a new (and far easier) way to purchase them. We’ve now partnered with Soccer.com and you will purchase your SKY Soccer Jersey directly from our Soccer.com online store, and it will be delivered directly to your home. You can also purchase some really cool SKY Soccer Fan Gear at our custom Soccer.com Team Store.
We will send out more details and uniform ordering instructions on Friday, August 7th.
