Locker Room donations

Don’t let the added cost of equipment stop you from playing the game!

Hartwell Soccer in conjunction with the Town of Glastonbury Parks and Recreation and Glastonbury Social Services put together a sports equipment program called the Locker Room in 2011.  Since then, gently used equipment is being made available free of charge to players who need assistance with getting equipment.  Over time the program has grown to the point where we now include equipment for Soccer, Lacrosse, Baseball and Basketball.

Are you a family struggling with the additional cost of sports equipment this season?
Please contact Katryna at (860)652 7838 (or email at ) for more information.  Leave a message with your phone number, name, age of your child (for soccer ball size), shoe size and type of equipment you need (Soccer, Lacrosse, Baseball or Basketball).  A call to confirm that the items are available will be made and a time to pick the items up will be arranged.  Pick up will be at the Teen Center at 2143 Main Street, Glastonbury (Academy Building).

Donations and Trade-ins are appreciated!

Have a pair of cleats that your child has out grown?  Some shin guards that are just too small?  Bring them with you and trade them in for a bigger size!

We’re making improvements to the Locker Room Donation Center

In conjunction with an Eagle Scout Candidate we are in the process of upgrading the locker room to facilitate larger and more organized storage.  Boy Scout Troop 156 will be donating the labor. If you’re interested in donating to help cover the cost of materials for the new locker, please send your donation GHSC c/o Locker room donation PO Box 1154 Glastonbury CT 06033 or drop your monetary donation in the buckets set up at each tent during the Hartwell Spring warm up tournament on Saturday April 29th or Sunday April 30th.

Financial Assistance with other town programs

Financial Assistance is also available for a variety of town youth programs.  For a complete list of programs and for more information regarding financial assistance and scholarships please contact Katie Wilt, Human Services Outreach Social Worker, at 860-652-7640.

Important information on heading rules

CJSA has adopted the US Soccer and US Youth Soccer recommendations regarding heading and the protocol for suspected concussions.   Compliance is mandatory for all CJSA members for all activities where CJSA insurance applies effective April 1, 2016.

This means that:

Heading Restrictions

       Players who are 10 and younger

  • No player who is 10 or younger may deliberately head the ball, regardless of the age group of the team they are playing on.  This includes all activities where CJSA insurance applies, such as practices, scrimmages, and competitions at all levels.    
  • No player on a U11 team or a combined team including the U11 Age Group, (e.g. U11/12), even if the player has turned 11, may head the ball deliberately.  

        This restriction will be enforced in competitions for teams U11 and younger (including combined age brackets including U11 and younger) by award of an indirect free kick for the opposing team.  Coaches and parents are responsible for applying this restriction for players who are 10 or younger and playing up.  
        
       Players who are 11-13.

  • Players who are age 11 to 13 and on teams for age groups U12 and older, are restricted to up to 30 minutes of practice heading the ball per week.  There is no restriction on the number of times these players can head the ball in a competition, unless the team is competing in a combined bracket that includes U11.  


Concussion Protocol

                Where a Health Care Professional (HCP) is Present at a Game or Practice

  • Any player who sustains a significant blow to the head or body, who complains about or is exhibiting symptoms consistent with having suffered a concussion or is otherwise suspected of having sustained a concussion, must be evaluated on the sideline by an on-site HCP engaged in this capacity for the competition who will perform applicable testing.
  • Any player suspected of suffering a concussion will not be allowed to return to play until he or she is cleared by the HCP.  Coaches, parents/guardians or players may not overrule the HCP.
  • If a coach seeks to allow a player to re-enter a game who has been removed from a game for a concussion assessment and who has not been cleared to return to play by the on-site HCP, the referee shall issue a warning to the coach.  If a coach persists in seeking to allow such player to re-enter the game after having been issued a warning, the referee may take other disciplinary measures against the coach as are permitted under the rules applicable to the competition.
  • Unless an HCP determined that the player has not suffered a concussion and clears the player to return to play, the player will not be permitted to return to practice or play until the player has successfully completed the return to play protocol and has been cleared to return to play by a Physician.   

 
Where a Health Care Professional Engaged for the Event is Not Present at a Game or Practice

  • Where a HCP engaged for the event is not present at a game or practice, any player who sustains a significant blow to the head or body, who complains about or is exhibiting symptoms consistent with having suffered a concussion or is otherwise suspected of having sustained a concussion, must be removed from play and evaluated by an HCP before the player will be allowed to return to practice or play. 
  • No coach shall permit a player who has been removed from a game for a concussion assessment to return to play until cleared to do so by an HCP. 
  • If a coach seeks to allow a player to re-enter a game who has been removed from a game for a concussion assessment and who has not been cleared to return to play by the on-site HCP, the referee shall issue a warning to the coach.  If a coach persists in seeking to allow such player to re-enter the game after having been issued a warning, the referee may take other disciplinary measures against the coach as are permitted under the rules applicable to the competition.
  • Unless an HCP determined that the player has not suffered a concussion and clears the player to return to play, the player will not be permitted to return to practice or play until the player has successfully completed the return to play protocol and has been cleared to return to play by a Physician.  

 
Definition of Health Care Professional
Health Care Professional (HCP) are licensed professionals such as an Athletic Trainer Certified (ATC) or Physician (MD/DO), with skills in emergency care, sports medicine injuries and experience related to concussion evaluation and management.
 
 
Compliance is mandatory for all CJSA members for all activities where CJSA insurance applies effective April 1, 2016.

Silent Sidelines May 20th and 21st

Silent Sidelines Weekend Banner Cropped

 

Silent Sidelines - May 20th - May 21st

Each Fall and Spring playing season the league sponsors a Silent Sidelines weekend. Coaches will be permitted to give players direction from the sidelines. Spectators will be directed to refrain from making any comments to players, coaches or referees, but will be permitted to applaud efforts by players.” Referees are not responsible for the enforcement of this rule.
There are many great reasons for Silent Sidelines:
1. Develop our players to make decisions on the field without sideline intervention.
2. Improve the players’ communication on the field by reducing the outside noise level.
3. Support our youth referees by eliminating dissension from the sidelines.
We are requesting that all spectators remain silent on these weekends. For the sake of our kids, we are asking for one weekend where we stand back and just let the players play. We would like to provide each player at least one weekend of their season that is free of the distractions caused by spectators screaming and yelling at them.
Please Support Silent Sidelines Weekend and give the game back to the kids!
(The below message is a modification of Andrea Duffy’s May ‘02 Presidents Message.)
A mother was making a breakfast of fried eggs for her teenage son. Suddenly the boy bursts into the kitchen.
"Careful! Careful! Put in some more butter! Oh my goodness! You're cooking too many at once. TOO MANY! Turn them! TURN THEM NOW! We need more butter. Oh my! WHERE are we going to get MORE BUTTER? They're going to STICK! Careful!... CAREFUL! I said CAREFUL! You NEVER listen to me when you're cooking! Never! Turn them! Hurry up! Are you crazy? Have you lost your mind? Don't forget to salt them. You know you always forget to salt them. Use the salt. USE THE SALT! THE SALT!"
The mother stared at him. "What's wrong with you? You think I don't now how to fry a couple of eggs?"
The son calmly replied, "I just wanted to show you what it feels like when I'm trying to play soccer."
