Soccer Club of Guilford 2017-2018 Evaluations
The Soccer Club of Guilford is pleased to announce open registration for U11-U14 team evaluations/placement for the 2017-2018 seasons. 
 
 
Registering for evaluations is free to all age appropriate players born between Jan. 1, 2004 and Dec. 31, 2007.   Registering for the evaluations allows the club to coordinate the assessment and have sufficient staff at each session. 
 
Evaluation are the start of the team planning and formation process for U11-U14 teams. 
  • Evaluations are REQUIRED for players that want to be considered for play on the more competitive teams that are typically coached by a qualified paid coach. The "COMP" team commitment is for two seasons Fall 2017 and Spring 2018. 
  • Multi-sport athletes that do not wish to make two season commitment to the teams and players that only wish to participate in Travel Recreational soccer teams are HIGHLY ENCOURAGED to attend evaluations.  
  • Results will be announced the week of June 5th.
  • Players will automatically be registered to the appropriate teams to facilitate the process. 
    • Players registered to COMP teams will have ONE WEEK (no later than 6/16) to accept and complete registration and payment.  If registration is not completed by the due date it will be canceled and the spot will be offered to another player. Please look for the registration notice, as the club cannot follow up individually with hundreds of players.
    • Players automatically registered to REC teams can take advantage of the early bird registration fee by completing the registration promptly.
 
PLEASE REGISTER FOR EVALUATION NOW, it will take less than 3 minutes and will help the club tremendously.
 
FAQ:
  • WHY should you attend evaluations if you want to play Recreational Soccer? Helps the club form and register our REC teams in the appropriate league within our district for the optimal experience.  There are also instances where the club has to combine teams or move players between teams and having an assessment on record is important to ensuring the best placement for the players.  
  • Injured players should notify director of travel and director of coaching and must be present at one evaluation
  • If you cannot attend any of your age group evaluation dates contact Travel Director and Director of coaching immediately.

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.
