New Coginchaug Soccer GEAR!!

November 2nd, 2018

End of Season

The last day of the season is November 11th. Any game that needs to be played beyond this date will need approval from the Boys and Girls Commissioners. There must be a valid reason for this extension i.e. Cup Games,

Any Game not played by 11/11 or with an approved extension that do not show a score entered into the system will be subject to a $25.00 fine per game.

Please insure you are updating your schedules and your scores. There is absolutely no reason why at this point those games are blank. If you have questions, please reach out to your club rep for your website because that is where you need to update the information.

Thank you

2018 Fall SCD League Champions T-Shirts

2018 Fall SCD League Champions T-Shirts

Update 10/29/2018: Thank you to the 13 teams that have entered their team information. If you do not enter your Teams T-Shirt sizes then you do not get t-shirts

2018 Fall SCD League Champions T-Shirts - Team Coach/Manager ONLY - ACT NOW!

For all Club/Teams Participating in the South Central District League

Coach/Team Manager-

The Spring 2018 league championship shirts ordering form is open for your team (players only).

1) ONLY ONE ORDER PER TEAM - Coordinate with team management so only one order per team is entered. If more than one is entered SCD will select one of the orders.

2) All teams should complete this order form!

3) Only those players on your roster are eligible to get a t-shirt. We understand you may have other players that have participated with your team but we are limiting to players on your roster.

4) Adults on the roster will not get shirts - this is for the kids and not the coaches/managers. Do not order for the adults.

5) We will be checking your order to your roster.

6) The deadline is 11/25/2018

PLEASE NOTE - Only the division winners will get t-shirts. However, all teams must complete this form by the deadline. If your team wins the division and the coach does not fill out the form, the team will not get shirts. All other orders will be deleted. The reason for doing this is so we can get the orders in quickly to the vendor and the district can get the shirts to the league championship teams in a timely manner.

If you have any questions, contact your respective commissioner.

Commitment to Culture

Commitment to Culture

Coginchaug Soccer Club Announces Pledge

To Build Unique, Positive Soccer Culture

Durham, CT-October 10, 2108: 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, CSC President. "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 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.

SCD League Schedules

SCD Announcement for League Game Schdules

SCD League Game Schedules - League games are scheduled. They ARE NOT FINAL and should not be considered final until Sunday morning. Clubs were informed about this. To test the publications of the schedules in this new system we need to "Publish" the games today to test the functionality. This will be limited to only one or two Division/Pool. If you see games added or are notified of these games, please know they are not to be considered accurate until Sunday morning. If you see games added and deleted then added - I APOLOGIZE for all the notices but we need to test this. Please be patient.

Game Schedule Availability - Current game schedules are available in this way:1)SCD Commissioners have sent to clubs in PDF. 2)SCD site. Go to "Team > SCD Games " then filter/limit to any club/gender/age/team etc... 3)Schedules are available to all clubs in their admin systems by clicking the League tab. 4)We BELIEVE schedules will become available in Team Connect sites and are actively working on this now.

SCD League Game Scheduling and Schedules Changes - This weekend is the SCD League scheduling meeting. The schedules, as in the past, have to be changed to represent the results of the meeting. These changes are done by to assigned users(club admins, coaches, managers, etc…) given access to do this. This is in the League tab of the Club system.

I will try to create and post today a video of the above

Become a Referee

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 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

For specific questions, please contact CSC Referee assignor John Bugai at

Let's Play

Announcing the beginning of "Let's Play Wednesday!" for Coginchaug Soccer Club members.

What is it? - CSC has reserved Fields at CRHS and Peckham for free play (pick-up games) for any CSC members. Any age, any gender.

Who can play? - Any CSC member. Any age. Ask Mom and Dad to give you a ride, call your friends and arrange to meet and get a game going. (Mom and Dad can play too!)

When? - 6:00 to 7:00 pm, every Wednesday through July and August, beginning July 11th, 2018

Why? - U.S. Soccer and other soccer governing bodies from around the world encourage "free play" or "pick-up" games with little to no guidance and interference from adult coaches as one of the best ways to encourage player development and continued athletic participation, especially in younger players.

How? - Remember back in the "good ol' days" when children used to arrange their own neighborhood "pick-up" games on their own? Let us teach them how.

How much does it cost? - Free to CSC members! Please register on the site even if you think you might show up even once.

Coaches? - Only if they are there to play too or have fun. There will be at least one CSC adult monitor present during the session for parental guidance.

Parents? - Please volunteer to be a monitor if you have completed the volunteer and background checks as outlined by the Club.

Equipment? - Please bring soccer cleats, shinguards, and a water bottle ...........don't forget your ball! Pinnies will be available from the CSC shed.

Volunteer monitors: Please contact David Booth if you think you can volunteer to be a monitor for a session or two. You would provide access to pinnies from the shed and serve as the CSC representative.
