Drop in Soccer is back!

Drop in Soccer is back this summer for Hartwell Players! 

Soccer players entering 3rd-8th grade this fall involved in girls and boys recreation or travel soccer:

This is an opportunity to play scrimmages with friends over the summer break. Turn up, play and have fun!
The DOC and parent coaches will be on hand to supervise, however there will be no formal coaching.

When: Tuesdays in July (July 5,12,19 & 26) 
Time: 6 -7:30pm
Where: Rotary Fields 



US Youth soccer encourage free play to promote children to be creative and explore in the soccer setting. This gives children an opportunity to play with a variety of different players, ages and ability levels. The unstructured soccer environment requires children to think for themselves which allows the chance players to develop their soccer and personal skills. In a world where everything is so structured and organized, we are offering the 'drop in' free play to achieve the above points from US Youth Soccer and let our Hartwell soccer players ENJOY the beautiful game. To learn more about the importance of free play please watch this video https://vimeo.com/129714733

We look forward to seeing you on the soccer field!

Director of Coaching

Hartwell Scholarship award winners

We are happy to award the $1,000 Hartwell scholarships to Kelsey  Foster and Brian Carvalho.

Kelsey  Foster

Kelsey started playing Hartwell soccer in 1st grade and continues  to play in our High School program today.  She is also currently  coaching a team and reffering both travel and recreation games  while continuing to mentor athletes with disabilities in our  TOPS Soccer program. Equally impressive has been her work in the classroom where  she received a National Merit Scholarship Program  Commendation, an AP Scholar with Honor Award, and Book  Award for excellence in Writing. Her experience in the Hartwell program has taught her to  collaborate with others and give back to the community where  she continues to do so today as captain of the GHS First  Robotics team and co‐founder of the GHS Rocketry team.  She  plans on studying Mechanical Engineering with a focus on  renewable energy and has a bright future ahead. 

Brian Carvalho

Brian Carvalho also started playing Hartwell soccer in 1st grade  and helped coach a travel team for 3 years and continues to be  a referee in our program. His academic career is equally impressive as his soccer career at  GHS where he has won an un-presented and unthinkable 3  consecutive state championships.   He has been able to achieve  High Honor Roll every year and be named an All‐Academic on  the GHS Varsity Boys soccer team all four years. His high school coach, Mark Landers, noted: “With his resolute  attitude, he has worked to balance the demands of his  academics, athletics and employment.  As a result of competing  demands, Brian has learned to be adaptable and pragmatic,  especially when time is tight.  Throughout it all, his efforts  never waned and he remains on the top of his class”. As the first generation born in this country Brian has witnessed  the hard work it take to achieve goals.  He plans to go on and  study medicine and help bring better health care to immigrant  communities.

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.

Riverfront Parking Guidelines

Hartwell Soccer Families,

Parks & Rec has asked us to pass on some very important information regarding parking at Riverfront Park:
 
It is extremely important that ALL soccer families attending practices & games park in the lot at 200 Welles Street (main lot at Riverfront behind gazebo). 
 
If you park in the boathouse lot, problems will be created for boaters looking to use the designated boat trailer parking and groups that have reserved the banquet facility.  It will also create difficulties for the crew teams and park users coming to the playground and to visit the riverfront.  Those that will be most tempted to park in the boathouse lot will be those assigned to field #1 (closest to boat house).  This also means no parking along the white fence.
 
Additionally, parking along the entrance drive or in posted no parking areas is not permitted.  The Police Department has been asked to patrol the lots during the peak use times on weeknights, 5:30-7:00 p.m., and on weekends to enforce the parking regulations.
 
If you are a coach or manager - please pass this information along to your away teams.  For an illustrated view of parking directions click here.
