The Soccer Club of Guilford is changing websites
ACT NOW OR YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE ANY INFORMATION FROM THE SOCCER CLUB OF GUILFORD!
The Soccer Club of Guilford is changing websites!
 
Hello Soccer Club of Guilford (SCOG) members,
 
All families/members that wish to receive future event notifications, registration announcements and wish to participate in future events must read and register soon. 
 
Connecticut Soccer is changing how we all interact. The CT Junior Soccer Association (CJSA) currently had a variety of systems the public and club administrators interact with. To improve service to all clubs and families, CJSA has contracted with Blue Star Sports as the single vendor for all its services. As a benefit of this new set of services, all districts and clubs will be able to utilize this new system so we are fully integrated and reduce the workload on parents and volunteers. 
 
No information from the existing system will be transferred to the new system. This includes you login id, email address and password. After this Spring 2018 season we will be sending all notices from the new system. If you are not in the new system you will not receive notices. All registration for summer camps and Fall 2018 will be done in the new system. Travel team evaluations this spring for next fall will be done in the new system. 
 
All you need to do is use the below link to register all members of your family. 
 
During this one registration you will be able to add Parents/Guardians and multiple players all at once. The new state registration system has emergency contact and medical information built into the system. As such you will need to enter this information for the players. The club will most likely not need to collect this information on paper moving forward but this needs to be reviewed.
 
 
Please know that all communications for Fall 2018 will be from the new system. You must register if you wish to recieve the notices.
 
If you have any questions or issues please contact the SCOG Web Admin(Joe) at 
 
Thank you.

SCOG New Uniforms - Must Read

To all Soccer Club of Guilford travel players,

Please read this e-mail. It is in your best interest to take a couple minutes and take note of the very import information below. 

DO NOT BUY ANY SCOG UNIFORM PIECES WITHOUT READING THIS. 

As those of you who have been in the club for some time are aware, the uniform vendors change their uniforms every two years. This causes clubs around the country to constantly be outfitted in a new uniform design. This is not something club personnel do on our own just because we want to be in a new uniform. We are forced to do so by the vendors Adidas, Nike, Under Armour etc... Currently the SCOG teams are in three different uniforms from Nike. They are all somewhat similar. The club has been trying to keep the all teams in the same uniforms for as long as we can. We fill in with similar uniforms as needed. This causes problems as teams do share players and if all player of a team are not in the same uniform referees can get a little sticky. 

To alleviate the change in uniforms every two years the club has reviewed opportunity's from several vendors to have one uniform moving forward with no time limit. This type of uniform is called dye sublimation. This is considered a semi-custom uniform. The club will not have to change our uniform unless we choose to do so or the vendor goes out of business. After review of options the club has chosen to use New Balance uniforms moving forward. The quality of the uniform pieces are equal to or better than the Nike products we have been using. The uniforms will not be changed every two years so you will only buy when you need or chose to purchase a new one. The uniforms will be dyed with the club colors and the club logo direct from the manufacturer. Team Sports, our current local vendor and our vendor moving forward, will apply only the numbers. Dye sublimation should save families over the life of the uniforms. Getting the SCOG uniforms from New Balance does have a lead time so we encourage all to order early when uniform ordering becomes available. We will work with Team Sports to potentially carry a handful of SCOG uniforms in stock. 

For Spring 2018 we are using the existing Nike uniforms. You should buy only what you need and nothing more. The NIke uniforms will NOT be used in the Fall 2018 season. The Nike uniforms will NOT match the New Balance uniforms so once again will not be used in Fall 2018. 

The SOCG uniform store is open 365 days a year and can be found on the club website or by clicking here. This store will remain open with Nike products and Team Sports will try to get what you need from Nike but please Order Early if you know you need something and order ONLY what you need for this Spring 2018.

The SCOG uniform store will open with the new products as a Bulk Order Store in the spring. Please order for the fall when it opens.

Also, since the new uniforms will be used by players longer we are going to be suggesting strongly some players adjust numbers to avoid conflicts at older ages. 

That is all for now and thank you for reading.

Concussion Awareness

Hello All SCOG Members,

Important information from CJSA to all CT Soccer Players:

The Connecticut General Assembly passed a law regarding concussions in youth athletics. This new law requires that as of January 1, 2016, CJSA and each of its member clubs make available to each player and their parents or legal guardian, at the time of a player’s registration, a written or electronic statement regarding concussions. 

To assist our member clubs with this obligation, we have attached 2 files to assist you in this process.

  1. ​CJSA Concussion Cover Letter 2015 10 25 v1
  2. CJSA Concussion Awareness Form 2015 10 16 v1.2

Additional information can be found on www.cjsa.org

Concussion Information from the Connecticut Junior Soccer Association(CJSA)

November, 2015

U. S. Soccer indicates it will announce in the near future, specific details, including a number of new initiatives and recommendations concerning the modification of substitution rules and limitations on heading the ball as well as a more comprehensive player safety campaign. Click here for more information 

October, 2015

Effective January 1, 2016 each CJSA club is required to make available either a written or electronic statement regarding concussions to each youth athlete (i.e. all CJSA players) and the parent or legal guardian of each player participating in any youth athletic activity. The law requires that this written or electronic information be made available at the time of registration of each player and must be consistent with the most recent information provided by the National Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) regarding concussions.
