The Neutral Perspective: A Word From Our Refs

Our referees are doing a fine job this Spring season. The Grade 9 refs had a busy weekend at the Friendship Tournament in Raynham for the U10 teams. ??Please continue to abide by the Zero Tolerance Policy for any verbal communication directed towards or at the refs.

For the Spring Season, Assignor Jodi Meade will be responsible for all U10 games played in Easton and SSSL will assign all refs for U12 and higher. Please support our referees as they represent our town!

If you have any issues/problems/concerns with referees or as a referee, please contact the Easton Referee Coordinator/Assignor Jodi Meade at jodipickup@yahoo.com

Before you head out to the fields – take a few minutes to watch the videos "Attitudes are Contagious" from the link on the SSSL website under the Coaches Corner - http://www.southshoresoccer.com


ZERO TOLERANCE.
WE POSITIVELY SUPPORT ALL INVOLVED. WE NEVER ADDRESS THE REFEREE.

COACHES’ CORNER


Spring soccer is right around the corner!

Here are a few simple things to try and get ready for the Spring season.
As a family please support the local semi-professional and professional teams – a great experience for the entire family. We have the great fortune to have the New England Revolution, Boston Breakers, Real Boston Rams and more. In addition to watching the game try to get out and play the game too – invite the neighbors to join in for a little
3 v 3!

Players can....
Start to get those touches on the ball in the basement, at some soccer clinics or pick up soccer at a local indoor facility – if the weather is too COLD to be outside. Find a wall and kick it against the wall a couple hundred times a day. Challenge yourself and make up games! Play one touch, two touch and even three touch against the wall. A fun game to play is wall ball with a friend or two. Try to juggle off the wall. Invite some friends over and get ready to PLAY some 3 v 3 to get back into the soccer mode!

Parents....
Get out your lawn chair, iced tea (later in the season) and a good book… training and games are right around the corner. Start rehearsing your lines for pre-game and after game discussion --- here are some helpful hints: “What do you want to do for dinner after your game?... I hope you have FUN today!...Did you enjoy your game? …You looked so good out there working hard!... Let’s go get some ice-cream!” These helpful hints and preparations will ensure a successful soccer season.

Coaches....
Start to plan your training sessions for the season and get your cones, bibs and soccer balls ready. You may want to leave the whistle at home. Set up your parent meeting to lay out the expectations you have for the season and recruit the parents to help with the team. Provide your parents with information on Memorial Day tournaments or pre-season tournaments. Read up on the game and continue to improve your coaching. One of the best ways to build your coaching skill is to immerse yourself in the game by attending the US Youth Soccer Workshop/NSCAA Convention in January.

The winter is a great time to start the soccer YEAR fresh and full of ideas! Encourage your children to take risks and problem solve during indoor games and training. Most importantly let the kids be kids. Creativity is their BIGGEST asset --- let them use it.

I look forward to seeing you all out on the pitch!

 

Parent Trap

 

PARENT TRAP

Each year Easton Soccer awards graduating seniors two scholarships. This year the recipients were Oliver Ames High School Seniors Kelsey Bliss and Corinne Herlihy. Their involvement with Easton Soccer over the years as players, coaches, or volunteers; their strong community service history and soccer achievements as well as extracurricular activities all went into deciding that they would be this year’s recipients.

For the first time this year, Easton Soccer has awarded the Jim Hanley Memorial Scholarship. In February 2012, when Jim Hanley’s battle with cancer came to an end, Easton lost an outstanding member of the community as well as a strong supporter and member of the Easton Soccer Family. This scholarship is awarded to a college bound, Oliver Ames graduating senior; someone who has demonstrated courage and commitment in a time of adversity. The recipient need not be a soccer player. The 2013 Jim Hanley Memorial Scholarship was awarded to Brittany Cann.

Easton Soccer extends their Congratulations to this year’s recipients and to all of the graduating seniors.
