As you can probably guess as you drive by our snow covered fields, the beginning of the soccer season may be delayed or revised due to this crazy winter! Here is an update for various age groups:
U4 Kickstart and U5/6 Clinic - the schedule is available on your team pages. At this point we hope we don't have to push those start dates back at all. An email will be sent out once the final decision is made. The email will also include information about a uniform pick up night prior to the start of the season.
U7/8 and U9/10 in-town programs - Our coordinator is finalizing teams and finding coaches (email Lisa at firstname.lastname@example.org if interested!). She hopes to have that all set by 3/30 and then coaches will begin contacting their teams about practice nights and the start dates. Given the field conditions, we do not anticipate starting outdoor practices until 4/13 and games until 4/18 but we are working on arranging some time indoors for teams to meet with coaches and pass out uniforms. Your coaches will update you on that when they contact you.
Step Up, Devo and U11 to U19 - Coaches should be contacting you by 3/29. At this point no home games are being scheduled until the weekend of 4/11. Arrangements have been made for all teams (except U19 boys and girls) to practice indoors at various school gyms beginning the week of 3/30 for at least one week (possibly two if the fields are still muddy). Your coaches will communicate those details.
A free clinic for new and returning In-Town Assistant Referees will be
held on Thurs. April 9th from 7 to 8 pm in the North Haven
Middle School Gym on 55 Bailey Rd. This clinic is intended for
non-certified youth and adults that would like to be Assistant
Referees for our U-10 In-Town program this Spring. Games are held on
Saturday in the early afternoon. To find out the pay scale, click on
the documents tab of our website at http://www.northhavensoccerclub.org/.
The clinic will cover basic topics on Assistant Referee
responsibilities, which include proper conduct and mechanics, and
proper use of the flag. For the "Laws of the Game" and "Guide to
Procedures" visit ctreferee.net and ussoccer.com.
To be eligible you must be at least 12 years old. It is strongly
recommended that you attend this session in order to be contacted this
Dan Marques will be the instructor. Please come a few minutes early to
sign in, and bring flags if you have them.
Registration continues to be open online for our U4 Kickstart and U5/6 Clinic programs. However, these programs have limited availability remaining.
The U7/8 and U9/10 programs are full and are only accepting waitlist requests at this time.
All older age groups are now closed due to roster deadline dates.
