GHSC - Stack Sports Account

Whether you're new to Glastonbury Hartwell Soccer or have been registering your family members in our programs for years, you must create a new Glastonbury Hartwell/Stack Sports account to register for GHSC programs.

Here's why this is happening....

Beginning with the 2018-2019 season, the Connecticut Junior Soccer Association (CJSA) transitioned its league management functions to a new software platform and webpage, which is owned by Stack Sports (formerly Blue Star Sports) (read more about this HERE).

The Glastonbury Hartwell Soccer Club is also transitioning to the Stack Sports league management program in order take advantage of, and comply with, the enhanced background check review process for coaches/volunteers.

Another benefit to switching to Stack Sports software platform is that families need only access one system to register their children for soccer. Once GHSC switches over completely in June 2018, all registrations and team submissions will occur on the Stack Sports platform.

Unfortunately, this means that all current and future members must create an account at our Stack Sports website in order to register for Glastonbury Hartwell programs.

Please log on now and create your family account.

PLEASE NOTE:

Locker Room donations

Hartwell Families:

The Locker Room is in need of your used sporting equipment to outfit young players in need.  We are especially in need of most kid sized cleats - 11-13, and sizes 4-8.  As always, balls (especially size 3) and shin guards are also needed.  Please take a few minutes to check your closets and basements for outgrown sports equipment and consider donating! 

The Locker Room is at 2143 Main Street (Old Academy Building / Southeast Entrance).  Although there is construction going on in the parking lot, donations can still be dropped off on Wednesdays, Thursdays, or Fridays. 

We have two other options for donation drop-offs: you can drop off equipment at Buckingham park on Thursdayevenings between 5:30 – 7:00 (just ask for Justin or Tim), or donations can be left at 163 Tall Timbers Road. 

Your donations make a huge difference for many kids in our town, and we thank you very much!

About the Locker Room:

Hartwell Soccer in conjunction with the Town of Glastonbury Parks and Recreation and Glastonbury Social Services has put together a sports equipment program.  Gently used equipment is available free-of-charge to players who need assistance so that everyone who wants to play soccer, can play. 

 

Please contact Mandee at 860-652-7838 (or email at  ) for more information or to place an order.  Supplies are limited, but there are soccer balls, soccer cleats, shorts, socks, bags, and shin guards.  Leave a message with your phone number, name, grade that the child is in (for soccer ball size), and their shoe size.  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).

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

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.
