Travel Practice Times Adjusted Starting Today

Reminder: Starting TODAY all travel soccer practice times will be adjusted due to darkness.  Please refer the following schedule for the remainder of the season:

October 22, 24, 29, 31:

ALL Teams:

3:45 - 5 pm - Practice 1 - Long Lots, Burr Farms, CMS Front & Back

5 - 6:15 pm - Practice 2 - Long Lots, Burr Farms, CMS Front & Back

5-6:15 pm - Wakeman A, B & E

November 5 & 7:

ALL PRACTICES

3:45 - 5 pm - Combined at regularly scheduled practice fields

As we are adjusting Travel practices, there will be a significant increase in traffic when you are dropping off and picking up your kids from practice.  Please make the extra effort to PARK your vehicle in the designated parking areas at each field and WALK your kids to and from the field when dropping off and especially when picking them up.  It will be dusk by the time practices end so please be extra vigilant when driving through the parking areas at the fields. 

Please DO NOT park or stop next to the field at CMS Front or in the drop off loop at Long Lots Middle School.  Also, please do not park or stop along the field side of Wakeman access road. 

Darkness Policy:

Because of darkness starting Monday, October 20 all kids will remain with coaching staff and all parents must come out to field and pick up each kid personally. This applies to practices ending in the dark.

The safety of your children is our highest priority.  With everyone’s cooperation and a little extra time and effort we can ensure their continued safety while going to and coming from practices these next three weeks.

Parking, Drop-off & Pick-up for Clinics & Practices

Dear WSA Soccer Parents:

As we are gearing up for the soccer season, please remember to obey all “no parking and no standing” signs and abide by all parking rules and regulations at each field when you are dropping off and picking up your kids from clinics and practices. 

Please make the extra effort to PARK your vehicle in the designated parking areas at each field and walk your kids to and from the field when dropping off and picking up. 

Please DO NOT park or stop next to the field at CMS Front or in the bus loop at Long Lots Elementary School.  Also, please DO NOT park or stop along the field side of the Wakeman access road as this causes considerable congestion. 

The safety of your children is our highest priority.  With everyone’s cooperation and a little extra time and effort we can ensure their continued safety while going to and coming from clinics and practices this season.

 

Thank you,

Todd Coleman & Wesley M. Malowitz

Fall 2014 Travel Soccer News

Dear WSA Travel Parents and Players:

The Westport Soccer Association welcomes you to the 2014/2015 Travel soccer season.  Our fall travel soccer season is just around the corner.  This correspondence will provide you with a general overview of upcoming dates and programs for the fall 2014 WSA Travel soccer season.

Please take a moment to read through this correspondence so you are aware of important events and dates for the fall 2014 Travel soccer season.

Practice & Game Schedule:  All travel practices will be held on Wednesdays and Fridays starting tomorrow, Wednesday, August 27, 2014 and running through Friday, November 7, 2014.  Practices will not be held on Wednesday, Sept. 24, 2014 and Friday, Oct. 3, 2014 in observance of the Jewish Holidays.

Opening day for all travel soccer games is Sunday, September 7, 2014.  All regular league games will generally be played on consecutive Sundays through November 2, 2014.  The SWD playoffs for U11 and up teams will be November 8 & 9, 2014.  In addition, all U11 and up teams will play in the CT Cup Tournament with games on Saturday.  The specific times and locations of travel practices are posted on the WSA web site.  Click here for the schedule.  Each teams’ game schedule will be posted by the end of August once the schedules are published by the league.

Travel Parents Meeting:  An informational meeting will be held for ALL Travel soccer parents on Thursday, September 11, 2014 at the BMS auditorium from 7-9 p.m.

Fall Soccer Tournaments:  ALL WSA Travel soccer teams will participate in tournaments over the Columbus Day weekend this year – October 11 & 12, 2014.  Teams will either play in the Bethel Tournament or the Rocky Hill Tournament.  Both tournaments are two-day tournaments.

Uniforms:   We will be using the same uniforms as last year.  Those new to travel soccer or in need of a new uniform can purchase the WSA travel soccer uniform at Athletic Shoe Factor located at 1554 Post Road East, Westport, CT.  Uniform numbers will be assigned to each team and are issued on a first come first served basis.

Fall Developmental Soccer Program:  The WSA, in conjunction with MKSE, will be offering a developmental training program similar to the training program that we ran this past spring.  The developmental program offers U9-U14 Westport Travel soccer players the opportunity to train an extra day of the week, get more touches on the ball, make more decisions and build their overall confidence.  For more information on the developmental training program, please click here.  To register for the WSA Developmental training program log onto the WSA web site and go to the “Register On-Line” tab or click here.

On behalf of the WSA, we hope that all players and parents have a great soccer season.  See you on the fields.
