This is our FAQ of the most commonly asked questions at SFF Soccer Grizzlies. If you don’t see the answer to something you need please email or give us a call.

My child is 7 years old. Can he still play?

Grizzlies is for 5-7 year olds. League rules state that a child must be under 7 years old BEFORE the league start date. They are allowed to play if they turn 7 after the league start date. 

Where are the Grizzlies games held?

Games are held at the Marina Green or the Little Rec field in Golden Gate Park. The location is decided upon by the league host, the San Francisco Micro Soccer League, and will be available at least 2 weeks before the start of the season. We will publish this as soon as it is released.

What happens if it rains?

If a training session has to be cancelled due to a rain out, there will be an email blast to all parents. We will also post a notice on our Facebook page and in the NEWS section of SFFSoccerJuniors.com. If you have not received notification that class is canceled one hour before start time, then classes are on. You can also call us on 415.747.0802.

What if we miss a league game, can they be rescheduled?

Unfortunately, the league games are organized by the league host organization, so we are unable to reschedule games.

Is there a discount for siblings?

If you are registering more than one child from the same family, we offer $30 off for the second child. Both children must be enrolled in the same season to receive the discount. The promo code can be found on the right hand side of the Grizzlies registration page or you can email us at grizzlies@sffsoccerjuniors.com to receive the code.

If one child is enrolled in Cubs and the other in Grizzlies, their seasons must overlap at some point. Since they may not start at the same time, you should use the promo code when you enroll the second child in the later season. Feel free to email or call 415.747.0802 if you have any questions.

How does your Refer-a-Friend program work?

We love referrals! When your friend registers for the season ask them to mention your name in the HOW DID YOU HEAR ABOUT US question of the registration process. You’ll receive a $10 refund for every child you enroll. Refunds will be given after the first day of the season.

Do you sell gift certificates?

Gift certificates are a wonderful idea for your loved ones and friends. We sell them in a range of denominations from $30-$200. The gift card can be emailed to you or directly to the recipient.
