The Hartford Soccer Club has both Coed and Girls divisions for the U-10 thru U-14 age groups. Boys are automatically registered to play in the Coed division. Girls have a choice whether they would like to play Coed with the boys, or in a Girls-only
division. Typically, the U-8 and younger age groups will have a mixture of boys and girls, whereas the girls tend to switch to the girls-only divisions as they get older.
Teams are formed by the Director of Coaching and coaches late in the summer. Teams are assigned schedules and locations through their coach. The Hartford Soccer Club holds a coaches meeting in mid to late-August to kick off the new season. The rosters,
schedules, and other information is made available at this meeting.
Players are notified of their team assignments and practice schedules by their coach or team manager, usually within a week or two following the mid-August coaches meeting. Practices will also commence at that time. Team information along with practice
and game schedules are distributed at the first practice.
Uniforms and Equipment:
Uniforms are included as part of player registration. Your child will receive a uniform consisting of a shirt and shorts. The uniform will be distributed to the players through the team's coach and/or manager. Parents will need to provide the children
with shin guards, black socks, and a soccer ball. Soccer shoes are recommended, but are not mandatory.
At all age levels, parents play a major role in the success of the program and the enjoyment that their child gets out of playing soccer. The effort and time that you, as a parent or guardian, put into your child’s soccer team has a substantial affect
on their enjoyment of their time playing. Volunteers are needed for everything from coaching to setting up fields prior to the games. All families will be required to participate by volunteering ten hours of their time.
