Our practice is to leave everyone wait-listed for each age division until two things happen: (1) a head coach is registered and (2) there are enough children to fill the team. Once a coach is registered, we will release and notify sufficient players (in the order they registered) to fill the team. This procedure continues as coaches register and sufficient players are signed up. It is rare that players are not released at some point before the end of late registrations. Unfortunately, it is quite common for wait-listed players to remain wait-listed throughout the early days of registrations and often near the tail end of the registration period.
Coaches and players register at various times—some early and others late—but mostly late. A majority of coaches and players tend to register close to the end of registrations, and, still quite a number of them during the last week of registrations. But, as mentioned before, it is actually quite rare that parents do not eventually step up and volunteer to coach. We sometimes have to do a bit of poking and prodding, but the roles are eventually filled and players released and notified.
If you are wait-listed, you are guaranteed your place in line in the order you registered once a coach becomes available.
Wait-listed players who REGISTER during EARLY BIRD REGISTRATION will STILL receive the EARLY BIRD PRICE when they are accepted/released from the wait-list so long as they check out within 2 days after receiving such notification (Please note our system will automatically send you an email notification once we accept your child and release them from the wait-list). IF for some reason your cart should but does not reflect the Early Bird Price, please email us ASAP @ email@example.com so that we can adjust the price and you can checkout. IMPORTANT-PLEASE NOTE: IF you do not log back in and check-out within 3 days after being accepted from being wait-listed, your shopping cart may be deleted and someone else allowed to register in your place. You would then have to go through the steps or re-registering, and, possibly getting wait-listed again.
If you want to increase your child's chances of being released from the wait-list early, register early. If you want to nearly guarantee it, register early and volunteer to coach. We will help you get the training you need to fulfill the role including the option of setting you up with a mentor coach. Dates for Coach Training from NCFC will be forth coming.
We are confident that if you are available and willing, we can help you fulfill the role as coach. Plus we offer this coaching incentive.
