Bristol Soccer Club - COVID-19 Update
Posted Mar 19, 2020

Soccer Families,

As I am sure many of you are wondering, our soccer season will be impacted by the COVID-19 virus. We are currently following the guidelines set forth by CJSA and US Youth soccer by suspending all soccer activities through April 15th. We will reevaluate the situation at that time, and again will heed the guidance set forth by the governing bodies. At this point, we are hopeful that we will be able to proceed with a spring season using a modified, potentially shortened, schedule.

 

What does this mean for you?

  • Registration - will continue to open as is. 

  • Payments - we would recommend not paying for programs until such time as we have a firm grasp on the schedule and how changes may impact your ability to participate in the spring season.

  • Scheduling - As stated above, this will largely depend on if/when the season starts, school schedules etc. All scenarios are being considered and discussed and as we know more, we will share that information

 

As always, we appreciate your continued support of the Bristol Soccer Club, more so during these trying and uncertain times. Should you have any questions, please email the club at bristolsoccerclub@yahoo.com

 

Thank you,

Bristol Soccer Club

Our innovative lesson plans are developmentally appropriate and tailored specifically to the three distinct age groups we teach.

Each week with we will be using creative and imaginative that will focus on basic soccer skills like dribbling, passing, and shooting. We also will highlight a positive character trait each week such as respect, teamwork, and confidence. Soccer Shots will expose your child to the fun of soccer and provide the foundation to get started the sport.

In addition to the supplied Soccer Shots uniform, your child needs sneakers or cleats, and to bring a bottle of water. Children MUST be accompanied by a parent or guardian for each session

Changes to Recreation Soccer - We are pleased to announce that as a result of parent feedback, we have made some changes to the age bands for recreational soccer. We have gone back to two older recreation groups, so we will feature groups for ages 9-11 and 12-14

In addition, we are planning based on historical enrollment, to enter the 12-14 age teams in to the Farmington Valley Recreational league. This will mean that teams will be playing games at fields outside of Bristol, against recreational teams from other towns. Should we get enough local kids to form a competitive division here in Bristol, we will keep our teams/kids here.
