Here is a great local opportunity for your soccer player to attend a free clinic hosted by the collegiate soccer coaches at UCONN Men's Soccer! Following the clinic you can watch the UCONN Men's soccer team play a friendly game against Rutgers! The FREE clinic is open to all players up to 8th grade. NO High School age players are allowed to participate in the clinic!
In the midst of all the snow, the South Windsor Soccer Club would like to take a moment and thank a very special group of volunteers that dedicated their time on the field this past season, the South Windsor High School girls’ varsity soccer team.
The high school girls spent time volunteering their skills with the U11 girl’s recreational team, an annual tradition where they help their younger protege's develop the confidence of these young ladies both on and off the field. The high school aged players are some of the best candidates around to develop curriculum for the 9 and 10 year old recreational players as many of these girls were former players of the club not that long ago.
Skill sets taught by the high school players during practice are demonstrated with pride during the recreational games held at Rye Street Park on Saturday mornings. In fact, if you look closely enough at the sidelines during those games, you’ll see a supportive varsity team sitting alongside a sea of parents that day. In reverse, the young apprentice players can also be found at the high school games cheering on their favorite player/mentor hoping to walk in their footsteps one day.
“It was amazing to witness the transformation of the teams” commented Scott Shepardson, resident of South Windsor and girls volunteer coach with the soccer club. Scott is credited with initiating the relationship between the two organizations about two years ago and should be proud as we have received an abundance of compliments about the partnership from both parents and players.
South Windsor Soccer Club encourages programs such as these as it builds an important bond between the youth groups of various ages here in town. If you have an idea or would like more information about the South Windsor Soccer Club we would love to hear from you. Please visit us at www.southwindsorsoccer.org or contact Michael Moriarty, Community Director at firstname.lastname@example.org.
South Windsor Soccer Club was started in 1987 to offer soccer programs to the youth of South Windsor. That first year had over 300 players registered. Today there are over one thousand youths of all abilities playing in a variety of soccer programs including an in-house recreation league, TOPSoccer and full Travel program.
The goals of the Club are to encourage the growth of soccer and to implant firmly in the all members of the Club the ideals of good sportsmanship, honesty, loyalty and respect for authority.
