For EACH of the volunteers who step up, in whatever capacity you can, THANK YOU!
Our volunteers are priceless!
Fall Soccer Registrations for recreational programs Online registration is now open and will remain open for the summer for the Fall 2017 recreation programs for boys and girls ages 3 through 7. Registration fees are $50/player for 6-7 year old Intramurals and $35/player for 4-5 year old mini-kickers and 3 year old micro-kickers. The club maintains a 2 player per family maximum payment policy. Volunteers are needed for these programs. Register now. Look for a coach clinic during the last week in August intended to remove the mystery around what it takes to shepherd one of our younger groups. See the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) at our website below for more information.
Fall Soccer Registrations for club travel programs Online registration is now open for Stafford Springs Soccer Club Fall 2017 club travel program for boys and girls ages 8 through 14. Teams have been formed to compete in the Northeast District Division 3, 4 and 5 leagues and most teams have openings for late registrants. Boys and girls teams in the Under 15/14, Under 13, Under 12, Under 11, Under 10 and Under 9 age levels are expected. Registration fees are $80 / child for the club travel program. Travel team assessments were held in June but any new players will be invited to an appropriate team training session for best placement. A self service uniform ordering process will continue this season for travel teams only. This makes it important to meet the early registration deadlines so uniforms can be ordered far enough in advance to arrive by the beginning of the playing season. The new uniform ordering web site can be found at https://myuniform.soccerandrugby.com/store/club/stafford-springs-travel-soccer.
Safety protocols. The Connecticut Junior Soccer Association (CJSA) has instituted restrictions around heading the soccer ball. Effective last season, players U11 and younger are NOT allowed to head the ball during the course of a game or in ANY practice or training event. And in the Northeast District that SSSC participates in, this extends to the U12 leagues. Further players U12-U13 are allowed to head the ball during games but are restricted in the amount of heading practice that is allowed.
