US Soccer & US Youth Soccer Player Development Initiatives

We have been receiving a lot of questions lately regarding the new age groups in our club so I wanted to provide some background.  We have made these changes because we were required to do so by the CT Junior Soccer Association.  This was due to changes made by the US Youth Soccer and US Soccer Federation.  CJSA is our governing body and they fall under USYS and their governing body of USSF. 

We did not have a choice - it was either follow these mandates or stop having a soccer program that falls under these parent organizations.  Without these parent organizations, we do not have insurance and no one is eligible for scholarship money, amongst other perks.

Here are some helpful links & documents if you are interested in seeing why the USSSF made this decision:

MSC Board - President In Training

Greetings MSC Families!

I am writing to you today to inform you that this coming year will be my final one as the board president for MSC.  My youngest child begins the 8th grade this fall at Illing and once she goes to high school and ages out of our programs, I plan to do the same.  I am looking for a HIGHLY ORGANIZED individual to shadow me beginning now so that when I step down in November 2018, they can pick up the position without missing a beat.

Interested parties should contact me directly.  This is a 100% volunteer position and there is no financial reward to it other than the annual discount you are eligible to receive off your own child's club fees.  Responsibilities are as follows:

  1. Do the right thing for the players regardless of parent opinion
  2. Make the club activities fun while still maintaining the integrity of the program
  3. Answer all emails within 24 hours
  4. Delegate tasks to individual directors
  5. Ensure proper marketing of programs
  6. Oversee entire program (travel, in house, referees)
  7. Work closely with board VP to ensure all contracts are ethically obtained
  8. Attend two CJSA meetings per year
  9. Disseminate information from state wide opportunities
  10. Monitor registrations in programs
  11. Set annual club calendar
  12. Daily touch of the club in order to ensure the programs are moving along as planned
  13. Many, many, many, many, many ad-hoc requests and other random tasks

Again, if you have any other questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Thanks

Nicki Haataja, Board President, Manchester Soccer Club

Last Call for MSC In House - Fall 2017

Greetings MSC Families!

 

Registration for programs that still have space available will close on 9/30/2017!  Get registered now if you wish to participate.  No one may participate until all fees are paid in full & you have received an email from the in house director with a team assignment.

 

Online registration is open for the fall 2017 in house season.  This season we are continuing to make changes to update our program to be bigger and better than ever!

 

We will have the following divisions which will align with the birth years listed:

Mini Kickers - 2013-2014

Instructional - 2010-2012

Striker - 2008-2009

Junior - 2006-2007

Senior - 2003-2005

 

All divisions will be $70 per player.  Any registrations received after 8/31/2017 will have a $5 late registration fee.

 

All players will receive an MSC jersey and all teams will be coed.

 

In addition, we also run a TOP soccer program.  Due to a generous donation from an MSC family, this program is free and is open to anyone born between 2003-2014.  See our website for details.  TOP soccer is not open to everyone - your child must meet certain criteria so be sure to read up on the program on our website if you have questions.

 

All teams in all divisions need volunteer coaches except for the Mini Kickers program.  Please register as an adult volunteer separately if you are interested.

 

Practices begin on 9/11/2017 and games will begin on 9/16/2017.  The season will conclude with MSC Family Day on 10/28/2017.

 

Please submit any questions to the in house director, Becca Gentile, at .

 

Financial Aid is available by visiting our website and filling out the form.
