Welcome to the Fairfield United Soccer Association website. The Fairfield United Soccer Association (FUSA) is a non-profit organization run by parent volunteers. Fairfield United looks to provide an opportunity for youth soccer players in our community to improve their skills, play competitive travel soccer and enjoy the game. We aim to facilitate player development and promote the values associated with youth sports including teamwork, sportsmanship, and local spirit.
Fairfield United currently sponsors boys and girls travel soccer teams from the U9 age group up through the U14 age group and into high school. Information about Fairfield United, its programs and teams is available on this site through the menu items on the left and top of this page.
Become A FUSA Volunteer Today!
FUSA currently needs to fill a few key positions on
Board committees and continue to add volunteers
to our FAST Committee.
Listed below are positions and a short description of duties that we are seeking qualified candidates for. Please contact Stephen Zhawred
or Mauricio Trabuco
with questions or to put your name in for consideration:
Referee Coordinator: Work alongside Wolfgang Pfleghar and begin to learn the ropes for coordinating and scheduling referees for all FUSA games held in Fairfield. Wolfgang has innovated this position over the past few years and is looking for a partner to share the responsibility with. You will ultimately (within a year) need to become a CJSA certified referee assignor, which means taking a one-day class at a CJSA event.
Registrar: Work alongside Heather Lajeunesse and Melissa Johnson to assist in handling the duties of Registrar for the club. Heather will be stepping down later this year and is looking to mentor her replacement. This job handles all team registrations with the district, player pass creation and player paperwork collection. This is a job for a highly organized individual. Most of the time commitment is in the spring during tryouts and early summer after the new teams are formed.
Coaching Committee: Responsibilities of the Coaching Committee include coordinating and managing the process for selecting the Parent Coaches – defining the process, collecting and reviewing Coaching Applications and making recommendations to the Board. In addition, they will distribute, collect and organize year-end evaluation forms for all Parent Coaches and work with the clubs Coaching Director (OLE) to ensure that the Fairfield United philosophy is being consistently applied.
Tryout Committee: Russ Harper has done a phenomenal job serving as FUSA’s Tryout Committee Chairman over the past few years. He has a wealth of knowledge and experience to share with incoming volunteers who want to join this very important and rewarding committee. Volunteers will be present at all boys’ and/or girls’ tryouts in May/June. They will be responsible for checking in players, gathering forms, and handing out pre-assigned pinnies. Volunteers will ensure that each player is accounted for on Fairfield United tryout list. Detailed checklists will be provided and will need to be returned to the Registrar’s immediately following each tryout. Volunteers will also assist our Registrar’s where needed during the tryout and registration processes.
Equipment Manager: Coaches bags, balls, corner flags, pinnies, cones, whistles, ball pumps, ice-packs…the list goes on and on. FUSA is looking for a volunteer (or two) to manage the essential practice and game equipment that none of our coaches or players can live without. Volunteers will manage the inventory to ensure each season our teams have the equipment they need, as well as work with Soccer & Rugby to order replacement supplies when needed.
Scholarship Committee: FUSA’s Mission is to provide an opportunity for youth soccer players in our community to improve their skills, play competitive travel soccer and enjoy the game. We aim to facilitate player development and promote the values associated with youth sports including teamwork, sportsmanship, and local spirit. As a means to help families who cannot afford seasonal or annual travel soccer tuition, FUSA offers financial aid to qualified members. Volunteers of the Scholarship Committee will help to manage the scholarship budget, monitor the criteria for scholarships (nominations or recommendations for candidates eligible), funding of scholarships, reporting and documentation of each scholarship, as well as coordinate and manage the clubs newly instituted High School Scholarship program – where in partnership with HSSFF (High School Scholarship Foundation of Fairfield) FUSA awards 4 college scholarships each year - one boy and one girl from each public high school (Ludlowe and Warde).
Premier Development Committee: FUSA’s Premier program is thriving. Each season the club enters between 5-8 Premier teams into CJSA’s Premier League or Elite League. These competitive teams provide FUSA’s top players the opportunity to continue playing with their friends while also playing soccer at the highest level. In order for us to continue staying competitive, we need a team of volunteers who will keep an eye on the always-changing Premier landscape. Along with Past President Mauricio Trabuco, volunteers will work to ensure the FUSA Town Premier program continues to grow.
FAST Committee: Our 7th annual Labor Day tournament was the most successful yet. In order to continue our success, we need MORE volunteers. It takes hundreds of hours of work prior to kick off on that first Saturday in September. Meetings typically begin in April and run monthly until July. Please consider joining us, the experience is very rewarding and you will get to know a lot of great people.
FUSA can only be successful if we have dedicated people involved in running its operation and helping to shape its future. We hope that you will consider joining the FUSA team.
