Fall Soccer Registrations:  Registrations are now open for the fall soccer season online at StaffordSports.org (click on Youth Soccer). 

Coach Clinic Thursday August 28: An enhanced instruction program for parent volunteers is scheduled for Thursday August 28 starting at 6:00pm at Stafford High's lighted soccer field.  This clinic is targeted for coach volunteers of the intramural and minikicker age groups.  Please contact Dave Bachiochi at d.bachiochi@cox.net if you are interested or have any questions.  It is ideal if you come to the clinic dressed to participate in the light activity.  There is no charge but please let us know if you are coming in case there are last minute changes.

Recreation Programs: Registrations for intramural (Under 8 years old), minikicker (Under 6 years old) and microkicker (three year olds) recreational programs remain open for the summer. The Intramurals program will play matches on Saturday mornings and practice twice per week mid-week. Minikickers sessions will be offered in two programs.  One program plays Mondays and Thursdays at 6:00pm, and the other program plays Wednesdays at 6:00pm and Saturdays at 10:00am.  The three year old microkickers program is scheduled for Saturday mornings from 9:30am-10:30am at Stafford High.  We do have a volunteer program coordinator for the three year old program!  Additional information about the logistics of the recreational programs is posted on the website.  Parent volunteers are needed for all recreational programs.
