2021 Registration - Barkhamsted Youth Soccer

UpdatedFriday July 9, 2021 byBrian Grant.

Hello Northwest Connecticut Recreation Soccer League Families!

Believe it or not the 2021 Fall Soccer Season is around the corner! Our soccer league committee has met and we are happy to report that given the current virus data in the state, we will be moving forward with a 2021 soccer season this fall as close to normal as possible. We will obviously keep an eye on the data and should any signs point towards a rise in positivity we will look to enforce many of the same protocols we put in place for the 2020 season that made it so successful.

Registration and Payment

Registration opens June 16, 2021 and will close on September 3, 2021. Please register as early as possible so that each Town can confirm their numbers, set up teams, create a schedule and order uniforms in a timely manner.

Registration Link: Visit the league website: www.nctrsl.com/site/

If you do not already have an account, please create one. After creating an account, you will be asked if you wish to register a child or children in the league.

** Please note, that by creating an account and registering in this manner it will allow for updated information to be visible to you via the website, and for it to be sent to your email and/or mobile phone if you so choose.

Barkhamsted Youth Soccer is a Kindergarten through 8th grade recreational program for all skill levels. The key component of this recreational program is to have fun learning and playing soccer.

Other Towns involved include New Hartford, Norfolk, Colebrook, Hartland, and Winsted. There are 5 levels available for children to participate in:

Kindergarten = Kindergarten

Junior League = 1st and 2nd grade

Lower League = 3rd and 4th grade

Upper League = 5th and 6th grade

7-8 grade Team

 

We will be setting up teams as we get closer to September. You will hear from your child’s coach early in September once we have completed that process.

Opening day is planned for Saturday, September 11, 2021. We will send more information out on this as the season approaches. The “regular season” ends on October 23, 2021. The younger players (K, 1 & 2) will be done on that day. The players on the Lower (3 & 4) and Upper (5 & 6) teams will then participate in the league tournament which will continue through November 6, 2021.

 

Volunteers run the league so your help is always welcome!

As always, we have many responsibilities, opportunities, tasks and jobs that need to get done for the kids to enjoy the season. Please consider volunteering a bit of your time, be it a few hours or duty/task related activities. Please contact us at your town's email listed above if you are interested. A few examples are:

  • Running the K-league
  • Coaching
  • Lining fields
  • Inventory (shed, balls, equipment, etc.)
  • Finding and recruiting sponsors
  • Coordination of a food table(s) for opening day
  • Coordination of player equipment swap (on or prior to opening day)
  • Team Parents, organize treats, half-time beverages, etc.

We will continue do everything within our ability to provide our kids with a safe opportunity and environment to play soccer amongst our 6 towns. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us.

We’re looking forward to a great Fall 2021 soccer season!

 

Thank you,

Brian Grant and Mike Stapleton
