  • Field Curfew in Effect

    Posted September 25, 2019
    Thanks for your patience as we work around the town imposed field curfew.  Our soccer fields see about 1000 practices and games each season so it's a big job to readjust and we're working hard to make things as smooth as possible.  
     
    At this point, it looks as if the curfew will remain in effect for the foreseeable future. The town is looking towards a hard frost as a solution to the mosquito issue.  After much discussion, we have arranged the attached schedule changes effective tomorrow, Thursday, 9/26. 
     
    Practices will be held from 5-5:30 each weeknight (see days for your age group on the attached document).  Trainers will run Rec practices clinic style at Rye.  If travel coaches are unavailable at 5pm, players should attend these clinics.  Additionally, practice time will be allotted prior to each home game on weekends. 
     
    These changes are NOT currently shown in your Team Connect app and will take some time to update.  Please use this schedule as well as any communications from your coach going forward.  This schedule is in effect until the town lifts the curfew.

Players must be enrolled in a Fall 2019 recreational soccer program to participate.

The SWSC Academy was designed to enhance the development of our U6-U10 age players within our club. It is intended for those young players who are interested in advanced training, with professional coaching and getting a better introductory understanding of the travel soccer experience.

This style of training and play is strongly encouraged by the USSF and US Youth Soccer organization as being the best for player development. At this age it's not about wins and losses, it's about player development. According to the US Soccer Coaching Education Department, the most fundamental skill is individual mastery of the ball and the creativity that comes with it.

Academy programs allow young players to grow into the game in a fun way with the freedom to experience and develop at an age-appropriate pace. Academy programs allow clubs to create an innovative learning environment for players to thrive.

The academy program works hand and hand with recreational soccer programs. It offers those players the extra training they may desire without interfering with regular season play. This provides them with an atmosphere to continually advance in skill level by providing more touches on the ball in a low-pressure environment where they have the time needed to try new things and develop ball mastery skills.

For most players, this is the best environment for them to grow. Other clubs may offer league play rather than an academy program. However, the greater the level of competition, the less time the player has to develop creativity. The greater the level of competition, the more pressure parents put on their children. The greater the level of competition, coach's tend to shift their focus to winning rather than the development of players.
