In early August, Dick’s Sporting Goods hosted its first ever South Windsor Soccer Appreciation Day, an event exclusive for members of the club which provided a 20% discount off anything in the store. Several members of the Board of Directors were in attendance not only to answer questions about the club, but they also demonstrated the proper way to fit a youth player for shin guards and provided answers to the illusive question as to what size soccer ball is used for what age group. With over 100 families from the club making an appearance, the event was well received and provided a great way to have any questions about the Fall season answered ahead of time. If you happened to miss the event but still need some last minute gear; we have 10% coupons for soccer related gear that are still valid.
I’m excited to share with you that we have approximately 900 players participating in our program this season and a large population of volunteers to ensure things run smoothly. Over the next few weeks you will see specific announcements for several fall season happenings that our volunteers have been working hard on behind the scenes. The club will be introducing a new local coaching award, a comedy and dinner event that will have you laughing, and the schedule for upcoming team photos.
Everything that the club does is driven by our volunteers and with those efforts combined we are able to deliver a positive experience to the youth of our town. If you’re interested in volunteering your time and skills, please reach out to me as we have a wide variety of opportunities we could use your help with (there is something for everyone). If you’re already a volunteer, please accept this message as a sincere thank you from the entire organization for all that you do!
Have a great season!

This past summer, the South Windsor Soccer Club was able to honor 3 local student athletes with a $500 scholarship towards their future academic career. Each of the candidates demonstrated success both on and off the field both as a player, referee, and successful student. We are pleased to announce the 2014 Scholarship Winners as:
Rachel Chernik – A long time player and referee with South Windsor Soccer Club, Rachel is involved with many clubs and volunteers her time throughout the year. Being a referee can a be a difficult task in any sport requiring a blend of technical knowledge, decision making and confidence to make the call. Encountering a diverse set of situations which involve players, coaches, and parents each week; Rachel turned her experiences into life lessons that will further support her through the many challenges to come.
Lauren Matone – Actively managing a commitment to soccer as both a club player, high school captain and referee is no easy task. When you factor in participation in the Student Government, Human Rights Club, various literature endeavors and an exemplary GPA; your left with Lauren’s impressive student resume that will serve as the foundation to her professional career.
Michael Tarascio – Michael has demonstrated his leadership and excellence through several channels including his role as the high school soccer team captain, an all-conference player and National Honors Society while still maintaining an active membership within the SWSC as a player and referee. He has managed to achieve a 4.30 GPA and has distinguished himself as a future leader.
On behalf of the Board of Directors and the rest of the organization, we wish Rachel, Lauren and Michael the best in their future endeavors and thank them for over a decade of commitment to the club!
