Championship Pregame Ceremony

Championship Pregame Ceremony

Referees and teams should be prepared to start the match at the conclusion of the ceremony. Referee should carry the game ball.

Teams walk from the centerline near their bench single file (captains last) toward center circle to the center of the field, turn ninety degrees (toward a goal) until they form a line parallel to the sidelines and facing the fans side of the field. Teams walk side by side with opposing team and behind the referee team.

One team will be in line at one side of the field in front of their bench area, the other in line at the other side in front of their bench area, and facing spectators.

The referee will conduct the coin toss with the captains.

The assistant referees will perform a ceremonial equipment check, and return to the center of the field.

The players will then shake hands similar to post game sportsmanship practices and proceed to their positions on the field or on the bench.

Then game on.

2019 Jamboree Schedule

2019 Jamboree Schedule

All,

Please find attached a revised copy of the 2019 NED Jamboree Schedule and Ref Assignments for this upcoming weekend. Please help get this information to those that need to know. This only impacts the U15 girl's teams on Sunday as another team was added to that division.

Please arrive early and stop by the check-in table located inside the bubble on Sat/Sun to verify your schedule. It is not uncommon for jamboree matches and fields to be adjusted on the fly.

Many thanks to our hosts at Star Hill (Mike and his team), our NED leadership team (Chafik, Dave & Rick), our ref assignor Eric Baughman from WAM, and Caroline Johnson & Julie Hughes from CWSA (schedule creation). Their participation in coordinating this has allowed us to have another year with this wonderful low-cost event for our NED players.

Welcome to the 2019 Fall Season

Please take a moment to read this important message to kick off the start of the fall season.

Vernon Soccer Club Team Columbia

Hello Team Columbia Families!

Welcome to Team Columbia! My name is Kasey Matson and I will coach your son’s / daughter’s soccer team this fall. You can reach me at 860-729-1899 and/or kaseymatson@yahoo.com. Victoria Boyajian will be my coaching assistant.

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 Thursdays at 5:30pm-6:30pm at Vernon Center Middle School on field Lower M1 and will start on September 5th. 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 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 or through the Team Connect App. They will be played on Saturday mornings at 10:30am. 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 2019 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!

-Coach Kasey
