SSA Inclement Weather Procedures
by posted 08/27/2014
 

SSA would like to remind our families of our Inclement Weather Policy and Procedures with the season poised to begin.  Please read carefully.  We look forward to another great season!  Thank you.

 

SSA Inclement Weather Policy
 
Practices
Cancelation of weeknight practices due to inclement weather is the decision of the President and AFC Coach Director.  All cancelation decisions will be made by approximately 3:30 p.m.  Notice of cancelations will be provided via email and/or posted on the SSA website, and will also be provided by the respective Program Director to all Head Coaches/Team Managers. 
 
If coaching staff do not hear from their Director and/or do not see a cancelation posted on the SSA website, the practice is on!  If weather conditions worsen between 3:30 pm and the start of practice, the Coach will make the final practice decision at the field.
 
Games
The President and AFC Coach Director will be responsible for canceling games and work in conjunction with the In-House and Travel Program Directors.  All Head Coaches/Team Managers will be notified of game cancelations approximately two (2) hours before game time by their respective Program Director.
 
If coaching staff do not hear from their Director and/or do not see a cancelation posted on the SSA website, the game is on!  If weather conditions worsen by game time, the Referee and/or Head Coach will make the final decision at the field. 
 
Games that are canceled may or may not be made up – the final decision rests with SSA.

ATTENTION: Veteran Travel Player Uniform Ordering Info
by posted 08/14/2014
 

Attention Veteran SSA Travel Families:

If your child requires a new uniform kit, or only needs individual pieces of the required SSA travel uniform (shirt, shorts, or socks) because he/she has outgrown them, please go to the WeGotSoccer/Seymour Club link to order at:  www.wegotsoccer.com/seymour

Important -- Please remember to enter your child's assigned unique uniform number if your order includes a new shirt.  Orders that are placed with incorrect numbers may not be returned to WeGotSoccer and are the players’ responsibility to reorder.

Families are encouraged to order early to ensure timely delivery of item(s).  Travel games begin the weekend of Sept 6/7 and Photo Day is Sept 7, therefore families are urged to order items immediately to ensure timely delivery.  Club product may not be returned once embellished with logo and numbers.
 
Standard turnaround time on orders is 5-7 business days.  Orders will ship out of Foxboro, MA.  Standard shipping rates apply.  Product that is ordered incorrectly is not the responsibility of WeGotSoccer and may not be returned.

Should you have an issue placing your order online, or if you have any questions, please contact WeGotSoccer directly at .  They will respond to your inquiry as soon as possible.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation.  We look forward to another great season!

The SSA Board

NOTE:  This email information is not applicable to players/families that are new to SSA and have not previously ordered a travel uniform from WeGotSoccer.  Such new travel families will receive individualized emails with instructions how to order a new uniform for their child(ren).  Please contact Travel Director Kristin Stockman at with questions.

SSA Volunteer Opportunities
by posted 09/30/2013
 

SSA VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES
(Updated - September 2013)

Volunteers are the backbone of any community organization.  Volunteering for SSA is fun and rewarding!  Please consider volunteering to keep Seymour’s soccer program strong and support Seymour youth sports.
 
SOME positions are large – requiring a commitment of 10 or more hours per week, but MOST are very small – only about 3-4 hours PER YEAR.  See below for the number of volunteers needed for SSA programming.
 
Please email SSA at  if you would like to volunteer, or would like additional information.

Team Specific Positions
 
Coach/Assistant Coach
We look for coaches that have a desire to work with children and will promote SSA’s mission, vision, and objectives (see home page link on left).
  
Coaches will be provided an AFC curriculum for all practice sessions and work under the guidance of the AFC Coach Director.   Certification and training opportunities will be available for all coaches to further develop their skills.

 
Team Manager
Every SSA team needs a Team Manager.  The Team Manager facilitates communication between the coaches and families and assists the coach with communications, tournament registrations, clerical needs, etc.

Committee Opportunities

Fundraising Committee
A committee is needed to raise funds to offset the operational costs of SSA.  This committee works under the direction of the Board.  The prominent fundraising event is the SpringFest Beer & Wine Tasting.

  • Fundraising chairpersons: 2
  • Additional Committee members: 8
  • Time Commitment: between 3-5 hours per month until event.
Kick-off Day Picnic Committee
SSA hosts a “Kick-Off” picnic usually on a Sunday to celebrate the start of the Fall Soccer Season for its younger In-House Program players.  It is a fun day primarily meant to get people together and excited about the upcoming season. It is also an opportunity for coaches and team managers to introduce themselves to teams as well as for In-House Program players to receive uniforms and schedules. 

This committee works under the direction of the In-House Director and Treasurer.
  • Committee members: 2
  • Kick Off Day Volunteers: 3-5
  • Time Commitment: several hours; flexible time
 
Other Important Volunteer Positions

Welcome!
by posted 09/01/2012
 
Welcome to the web home of the Seymour Soccer Association!  The SSA Board asks that you visit our site frequently as this will be the centralized resource for information.  Please check back regularly for news, scores, weather updates, coach and family materials, schedules, directions, registration information, and much more.
 
The mission of SSA is to provide a means of recreation to all the children of Seymour while promoting the sport of soccer and developing the skills of individual players.  SSA’s vision is to create and encourage an environment consistent with good sportsmanship, physical fitness, respect, team play, and having fun.
  
SSA believes that youth sports should construct a foundation of confidence and team collaboration that youngsters can transfer to their lives.  SSA is also proud to partner with Academica Futebol Club (AFC), a company composed of experienced soccer professionals that support SSA's volunteers and share SSA's goals. 

As the great coach John Wooden said, “Sports do not build character.  They reveal it.”  It is my hope that Seymour’s young people will indeed reveal their character and realize the joy that participating in soccer brings.
 
Thank you.  I look forward to continued success as well as the relationships to be made out on the pitch!
 
Very truly yours,
Al Bruno, SSA President
