All participants must wear cleats and shin guards. Participants should also plan to wear long sleeves and long pants with goalie gloves. Bring your own ball and plenty of water.
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:
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:
Do the right thing for the players regardless of parent opinion
Make the club activities fun while still maintaining the integrity of the program
Answer all emails within 24 hours
Delegate tasks to individual directors
Ensure proper marketing of programs
Oversee entire program (travel, in house, referees)
Work closely with board VP to ensure all contracts are ethically obtained
Attend two CJSA meetings per year
Disseminate information from state wide opportunities
Monitor registrations in programs
Set annual club calendar
Daily touch of the club in order to ensure the programs are moving along as planned
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.
