    Commitment to Culture

    Coginchaug Soccer Club Announces Pledge

    To Build Unique, Positive Soccer Culture

     

     

     

    Durham, CT—January 15, 2019: Coginchaug Soccer Club has announced its pledge to build a unique, positive soccer culture by adopting the United Soccer Coaches “Commitment to Culture.”

     

    “Coginchaug Soccer Club is committed to exemplifying and embracing the Commitment to Culture and its seven cornerstones in growing the culture of soccer,” said Kevin Merrill. “We will serve the game that we love so much by embracing these cornerstones and demonstrating them with our players, families, coaches, referees and fans.”

     

    All of Coginchaug Soccer Club coaches are signing the online pledge at https://unitedsoccercoaches.org/culture. Players, parents and all of our stakeholder are also encouraged to sign the pledge.

     

    The United Soccer Coaches “Commitment to Culture” was developed by coaches of all levels to build a culture that celebrates what is best about soccer and helps it transcend from not only what happens on the field but also to what happens in the lives of players, coaches, administrators, referees, families and friends. As the unifying voice, advocate and partner for coaches at all levels, United Soccer Coaches launched this effort on October 10, 2018.

    The Commitment to Culture adopted by Coginchaug Soccer Club reinforces the following beliefs about our game:

     

    We Believe…

                                                                                                               

    1.      Soccer unites us. We embrace and celebrate our differences because the game makes us one.

    2.      Character first. We honor, teach and develop the core values of honesty, loyalty, responsibility, selflessness, compassion and discipline.

    3.      The rule of fun. Fun is the lens that can make every soccer player a success. Fun takes many forms and always concludes with “I want to do it again.

    4.      The game is the teacher. We are all responsible to ensure that soccer teaches the skills of a well-lived life. Teamwork, leadership, hard work, communication and creativity are just the beginning of its lessons.

    5.      Well-being. A safe, healthy, welcoming experience in body, mind and spirit is the right of every soccer stakeholder.

    6.      We are family strong. Family in all its forms – team, club, community, relatives – is the greatest asset that soccer has. Take time to connect and appreciate.

    7.      Soccer is the player’s game. Soccer is a personal journey for every player. It is for the player to see, decide, create and win or lose. It is their game.

     

    By demonstrating these cornerstones in all facets of the game, Coginchaug Soccer Club will be a change agent in strengthening the culture of soccer in the United States.

  • Become a Referee

    Posted July 9, 2018

    The club pays $20 - $50 per game and it's a great way to be involved and learn more about the game.


    To enroll in this training you must be 13 years old by December 31, 2017. Parents and any adult are also encouraged to certify! if you become a ref this spring, your liscence will be good until the end of 2018

    The club will provide a bonus to any new ref from Durham or Middlefield who refs 8 games in 2018 (any level of games) equal to the tuition of the referee class

    Training is done via online self taught sessions followed by an online open book test. Once the online session is completed, you will need to register for 2 sessions. The first session is a classroom session, the second a field session, both are taught by CJSA instructors. Each session is 3 hours, most sessions are held on the same day back to back. See the www.ctreferee.net website for full instructions


    IF you become a Referee:

    The club will work around your schedule: you will not be forced to choose between playing and referee'ing. You will work only when you are available

    If you think you could be an AR but not sure about becoming a center, that is fine, every game needs 2 AR's and 1 center, some ref's specialize in being AR's and rarely center a game. You will not be given a center until you feel you are ready

    You can only be a center for age groups 2 yrs younger than you, so if you are 14 yrs old, you can only center u12 and under games

    You can only be AR games for age groups 1 yr younger than your age


    For more information on the program, visit www.ctreferee.net.
