Coaches, particularly of new teams, may collect additional money for team equipment (game ball, pinnies, bench if the team does not have one, keeper gloves, etc.). This is typically done in the fall.
Scholarships are available if needed. Click here to learn more.

We’ve created a Facebook Uniform Exchange to make it easy for you to buy, sell, or swap Loveland Storm Uniforms.
You must check with your coach or Jessica Buringrud (Uniform Coordinator) before purchasing a jersey to approve the jersey number for your team and age group.
The 2020 (Fall) – 2021 (Spring) seasons will be the last year for this uniform cycle. A new uniform cycle will start in the Fall of 2021.
Policies & Forms
Severe Weather Policy
Upon seeing lightning, the fields are to be cleared immediately. NO exceptions!
A lightening detector is located at Phillips Park. One long blast indicates lightning has been detected in the area. It is possible lightning will be seen before the detector goes off. Upon hearing a lightning detection siren (long blast), fields are to be cleared immediately. No exceptions!
The lightning detector will give 3 long blasts to indicate all clear.
Regardless of how far you estimate thunder or lightning to be from the field area, coaches and trainers are to clear all team personnel from the field area and ensure they are under a shelter or in a vehicle for safety. There must be 30 minutes without thunder or lightning before players/parents/coaches may return to the fields. There are no exceptions; the safety of our club members is the top priority for FC Storm.
Failure to follow this policy could jeopardize a coach’s good standing with FC Storm.
FC Storm requires referees to wait 30 minutes after hearing thunder, seeing lightning or after a lightning detector goes off before making a decision to resume play.
