Concord FC 2017 Fall and 2018 Spring Travel Registration Now Open!

Due to changes within Concord FC, we are registering 2017 Fall & 2018 Spring at the same time.  As you navigate through the screens you can select Fall and/or Spring.  There will be a total of 6 payments to help families financially.  The link to registration is at the bottom of the email.  Please read this email entirely as it has a lot of important information in it.

Fall Travel (Registration between 7/10/10-7/28/17)

NCSA Concord FC is now accepting online registrations for the Travel/Rec Fall Soccer league until July 28th, 2017.  This opportunity is a nice option for those who want to take the next step after summer rec soccer.  Teams feature a more competitive atmosphere while keeping equal playing time and a focus on skills development.  Athletes will be expected to be at two practices per week (Tuesday/Thursday) and a double header of games on Saturdays.  Travel is limited to the southern tier (Bemus, Falconer, Westfield, etc.).  Our home/practice field is behind Holy Trinity Church in Dunkirk.  The season begins at the end of August and runs through October.

 

Teams will be formed by grade level and there will be no move ups.  All teams are coed.  The younger division consists of grades three and four.  Teams will be formed of about 10 players and the more that register the more teams we will create.  The older division consists of grade four, five and six.  Fourth graders will be placed in the older division based on coach evaluation and roster size.

 

Registration is $60 plus new uniform fees.  The league created new Travel uniforms this Spring and these are the uniforms we will use for Fall.  If your athlete played this Spring they do not need to buy a uniform.  All others will need to buy the new uniform.  Purple practice shirts are only required for athletes new to the program.  They are the same purple shirts as last Fall.  These uniforms will not change for two years.

If you have any questions please email them to the Director of Fall Soccer, Aaron Pietro at aaronpietro@gmail.com

 

2018 Spring Travel

 

Concord FC Spring travel is going through a transition.  The CFC Committee is committed to providing the best experience for players.  Concord FC will be entering teams in the Buffalo & Western New York Junior Soccer League (B&WNYJSL) and the Southern Tier Travel Soccer League (STTSL) for the 2018 season.  The B&WNYJSL requires teams formed much sooner then the STTSL families are familar with.  Therefore, we will be opening registration now.  As alreading mentioned, we will be registering fall and/or spring at the same time and there will be 6 payments to help financially.  We would encourage all families to be registered for Spring Travel by August 31, 2017.  Please don't hesitate to register as late registrations cause logistical problems with team creation.  

Thank you all for your patience during this time of transition.  If you have any questions please email them to the Director of Travel, Chris Witkowski at c.witkowski@ymail.com.

 

Concord FC will be holding try-outs for our upcoming 2018 spring travel season.

Try-outs are an all encompassing piece to assess readiness and help our coaches build their teams.

Date:

Tuesday, July 11, 2017.

Time(s):

5:30pm - 7:00pm for ages 9U through 14U

7:00pm - 8:30pm for ages 15U through 19U

Location:

Soccer field behind the Holy Trinity Church in Dunkirk, NY. (1032 Central Avenue)

Important Items of note:

  • Please have any athlete trying out bring a ball, shin guards, and water.
  • You can determine what age group your child plays in by how old they turn during the calendar year they are playing in. For example, a male player who turns 16 any time during 2018 would be considered a true 16U player for next spring travel season. He would be age eligible for play at 16U or older, depending on coach assessment of the player's skill, and maturity level.
  • If you are not a current Concord FC player, we welcome you to come try out, and are excited to meet you and your family! Please arrive with a parent/legal guardian who is 18 years old or older. They will need to fill out and turn in a try-out form prior to your participation. We will have them on site.
  • If you have any questions as to when your child should come, please don't hesitate to reach out.  
  • Lastly, we are always looking for more volunteers to make things move forward more efficiently, and expeditiously. There are several vacancies in key positions, which require your current volunteer leadership to wear multiple "hats" simultaneously to make things happen.  

We look forward to seeing familiar faces, and brand new ones.

We are very excited about all of the new things coming in our club, and we are sure you will be too!

Please feel free to share this invitation with any of your friends and family.

See you on July 11th!
