Silent Sidelines Weekend

A message from the Vernon Soccer Club directors...

Hello Everyone,

Just a reminder, this weekend is silent sidelines. Each Fall and Spring playing season CJSA sponsors a statewide Silent Sidelines weekend. The VSC attempts to have Silent Sidelines for every match. 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 and are encouraged to applaud efforts by all players.

Upcoming Game and End-of-Season Celebration

This Saturday's game is at 3PM at Stafford Middle School. Please try to have your player there at 2:30 for warm-ups and so we can get a starting line up. The field is at the top of the road when you enter the Stafford Schools complex (high school, elementary, then middle school). Address 21 Levinthal Run.

Coach Ray will take the lead on Saturday as I have a family commitment.

We'd like to have a kids versus parents fun soccer game next week on Wed, Oct 21 as part of our last practice. Then we can have some pizza. If you and any family members can make it, please let me know how many so I can order the right amount of pizza. I will have my husband pick it up, but if everyone who partakes can chip in, that would be great. Let's celebrate a fun season in which the girls progressed a great deal! Very fun to coach!!

Go Dabicorns 😀

Please rsvp about the 21st either way.
Thank you,
Kelly

Thanks!

Monday Practice

Coach Ray said he should be there by 5 tonight, so you can bring your girls to our regular field at 5. THANK YOU, RAY!!!
September 30th, 2019

Monday Practices

Good morning! Until I (or Coach Ray) can get to the fields, please bring your girls to the lower fields to Eric or Kevin (coaches of the 2 other teams practicing on Mondays) who will help involve the girls in drills until we arrive.

Thank you for your patience and understanding,
Kelly

Practice Time Change

Due to the EEE mosquito threat, all practices for VSC will be 5-6 until further notice. We may be practicing at a different field at which another coach can cover until I can get there. They will let me know tomorrow about that, and at that time, I'll let you know. Wanted to give you the heads up for planning purposes. If you cannot get your daughter/grand daughter to practice at 5, just get her there when you can.

Our second half was much better today! The girls were more motivated and aggressive - just like practices 😁

Reminders

Tomorrow's (Wednesday's) practice is from 5:30-6.

Saturday's game is against Columbia at Shetucket Plains Park at 315 Plains Park Rd in Willimantic. We play at noon, so arriving at 11:30 would be great if you can get there at that time.

Peace,
Kelly

This Week

Good evening! We have a fine group of girls working hard on the field! The girls are doing a great job trying what we are asking of them. Tough game Saturday against some more experienced players.

We have practice tomorrow, Monday, as scheduled, and we'll work on field/ball/game awareness - where to go when you do and don't have the ball.

Wednesday's practice will only be from 5:30-6 as I have to get to my kids' school for 6:30.

Our game is SATURDAY, Sept. 21 at noon in Willimantic. It is fixed on the website.

I few reminders for your daughters to leave jewelry, accessories, and toys at home for practices and games. Please remind them they will play both offense and defense at this level, and I will let them know when they're playing those positions. They should not be telling me what positions they want to play. Lastly, as per club/league guidelines, parents are to sit on the opposite side of the player benches at practice and games.

Thank you for your super support!
Have a blessed week,
Kelly

U10 Girls Saturday Game

Thank you for your patience and understanding with the last 2 practices and late notice today. The team we play on Saturday hasn't had a practice either. It will all be good 😀

Some of my goals for the year are improving passing and having the girls remember to stay/play in their general positions.

Saturday's game is home at 9, but I would like the girls at the field between 8:15-8:30 to practice. We play on field W1 which is across the street from the Strong Family Farm fields along West Road.

I REALLY do look forward to meeting you all, coaching your daughters, and having a fun season!!

Thank you for your support,
Kelly

Practice Change- THIS Wednesday

Hi, U10 Rec Girls Team. It has come to my attention that practices are to start this week, so we will have a short introduction practice THIS Wednesday from 6-6:30 at VCMS. I have a coaches meeting at 5:30 which is why I can't start practice then. I look forward to meeting you and your daughter on Wed.

If your daughter is unable to make any practices through the season, please let me know in advance.

Thank you and see you soon,

New Soccer Rule Changes

New Soccer Rule Changes

Please review the attached rule changes that take effect this fall!

August 23rd, 2019

Welcome to the Vernon U10 Girls Rec Soccer Team

Hello U10 Girls Rec Soccer Families!


Welcome to the Team! My name is Kelly Knotts, and I will coach your daughter’s soccer team this fall. You can reach me at 860-634-2466 and/or KLKNOTTS34@GMAIL.COM. I am still in need of a coaching assistant to help me run the drills at practice and to help with the bench during games as we have a decent size team. No prior experience necessary 😀 Email or call me if you are interested and/or have questions. I'd really appreciate your help.

I am a 6th grade teacher, and have 2 children, Dana on our team and a 12 year old son in the soccer program, too. I played soccer through high school and have coached for the Vernon Soccer Club for 4 years.


Please take a moment to log on to the VSC website and update your contact information if necessary so you receive communication regarding our team. Here is a link to the site: http://vernonsoccerclub.org/

Practices:
Practices will be held on Monday and Wednesdays from 5:30-6:30 at Vernon Center Middle School near the gravel road. We will start on Wednesday, September 4. Please plan to arrive 5-10 minutes before practice starts so players are ready to hit the field at the start time. This is especially important as we move into fall and continue to lose daylight. Players should have shin guards, cleats, a size 4 ball, and a water bottle at all practices. A parent or guardian should remain at the field during the practice. In the event of inclement weather, I’ll do my best to get word out for any cancellations as soon as possible.

Games
Our schedule of games can be found on the VSC website soon. I will be going to a scheduling meeting next week. Assume this is set for the season unless you hear otherwise. Communication regarding any changes will come via email from the VSC website. I expect players to arrive for games 30 minutes ahead of game time for warm-ups.

Volunteer Opportunities:
If you are not already aware, Vernon Soccer Club is a non-profit 501(c)3 run entirely by parent volunteers. If coaching is not your thing there are many other ways you can help support VSC: registration, equipment, fundraising, training, concessions, etc. VSC board meetings are the 2nd Tuesday of every month held at Center 375 (Teen Center entrance) at 7 PM. Here is a link to a list of the current board members if you have questions about specific volunteer opportunities: http://vernonsoccerclub.org/Contacts.asp?n=71786&org=VERNONSOCCERCLUB.ORG . The only way VSC can offer soccer programs for our players is through the work of volunteers so if you have the willingness and capacity please consider joining the team!

Fall 2018 Fundraiser:
Lastly, VSC will host a Shake the Can fundraiser during the fall season. It is expected that every team participates since every team benefits from the fundraiser. It is not expected that every player needs to participate as that is not feasible for every family. A Sign Up link will be sent out once details are finalized.


Thanks for taking the time to review this pre-season information. I’m looking forward to getting to know your child and to coach them through a fun fall soccer season!

Sincerely,
Coach Knotts
