Hartwell Pre K programs

Registration is open now for Glastonbury Hartwell Spring Pre-K Soccer program!

Pre K soccer is one of the most exciting ways for a child to experience soccer for the first time. The instruction includes movement and coordination skills with and without the soccer ball, with an emphasis on having fun.  Our sessions are made up of fun games to introduce a soccer ball, dribbling and kicking. Children will play with each other and also have an opportunity to meet new friends and develop social skills during the season.

Our Pre K soccer program is an introduction to soccer for 3-5 year olds. The program is a co-ed program that runs Saturday mornings in the spring and fall.  The registration fee includes a full season of weekly soccer sessions, a team shirt. The sessions are led by our professional club trainers with an opportunity for willing energetic parents to actively participate.  We will have a couple of parent participation weeks where parent, siblings or grandparents can play in the fun games with their Pre K child. This is a great way for parent and child to interact and make the soccer environment so much more fun! 

To sign up visit the Registration Tab on the home page.  If you would like to volunteer to assist our professional trainers please contact the Club's Director of Coaching, Dan Sidebottom (doc@glastonburysoccer.org)

Youth Soccer Coach/Trainer: Open Position

 

                                                                

 

Glastonbury Hartwell Soccer Club has an amazing coaching opportunity in our youth soccer program.  GHSC is one of the largest and well respected soccer clubs in Connecticut, providing an exceptional soccer learning experience to over 1,000 youth soccer players.  We are looking for an experienced coach with a passion for teaching this great game.

The primary focus in this role would be to work with the competitive Hartwell Travel and Recreation teams, from the U9 through U15 divisions, both boys and girls.  The right candidate will have the ability to encourage the development of our players as well as provide guidance for our volunteer travel coaches.

Prefer that applicants have some formal coach licensing (USSF or NSCAA) and experience coaching soccer, however, we will consider recent graduates looking to develop their coaching career.  If you are an ex-player, teacher, educator or a professional who can develop players and educate our parent coaches, this is an incredibly rewarding position for you.

Please forward resumes to:

Dan Sidebottom completes US Soccer National C License

Dan Sidebottom completes US Soccer National C License

Congratulation to our Director of Coaching, Dan Sidebottom, on completing the US Soccer National C License!

The National C Course focuses on the core concepts of coaching. Topics covered included Coaching Training Sessions, Coaching Games, Match Analysis, Leading Players, Leading the Team, and Managing a Performance Environment and Leadership.

The C course consisted of two course meetings separated by a development period.  The first meeting was a week of over 60 hours in the classroom during the day and most evening sessions on the field.

Next, Dan spent the entire Fall season implementing the material covered during the course.
During this time he completed 10 assignments, 2 session plans, 1 team meeting and 1 training session captured on video to complete the course requirements. 

The course was concluded over a weekend of assessments to deliver a session on the final topic chosen.

A special thanks to the Boys U14/15 Blue and Girls U12 Blue teams for their participation in this effort.
