We understand that many of you are eager to know when practices will begin and when your team’s first game will be, etc.
Here is a quick update…
The Southwest District has voted to postpone the start of the 2015 spring season by one week. This means the entire SWD schedule has been moved back and our first games will not be until Sunday, 4/19. This also means that regular season game schedules will not be released until the week of 4/13. You can learn more about the timing of the spring season (and much more) on the SWD website - http://swdcjsa.org/
Next, we are putting the final touches on the regular season practice schedule & footskills schedule and plan to share it with our Age Group Coordinators in the next day or two. They will then communicate it to the Coaches/Managers in their age group who will notify their teams/you.
Our goal is to still begin practices the week of 4/6. We are working on securing field space and building a condensed practice schedule for all age groups. We will communicate more on this shortly.
Please be patient. With the delay in the start of the season by SWD and the continued winter weather we have been having – the Town is not expecting to open grass fields until the week of 4/13, thus everything has been delayed. As you can imagine, scheduling 47 teams for practice on limited field space is no small task.
We appreciate your support and apologize if the delay is affecting your ability to plan for the spring. We are anticipating having everything squared away in the coming days. Thank you for understanding.
Spring arrives in just 15 days! Means the FUSA Spring season is right around the corner as well! In an effort to better prepare our families and players for the upcoming season, below is a quick checklist of key dates.
March 15th: NYCFC vs. NE Revolution at Yankee Stadium
We are excited to announce that the FUSA Board is working hard to define the application process and criteria for consideration of our first ever FUSA High School Scholarships. We hope to communicate further details in the coming weeks. Stay tuned!
In the meantime, we wanted to make you aware of the below CJSA and SWD scholarships:
CJSA – awards at least four $1,000 scholarships to candidates who participated with a CJSA affiliated club, have a C+ or better average and anticipate attending college as a freshman in September 2015. DEADLINE IS MARCH 2, 2015.
SWD – awards four $2,000 scholarships to candidates who have been involved with the SWD program (player, referee, coaching) and are planning to purse higher education in the fall. DEADLINE IS JUNE 1, 2015.
Additional information and applications for each scholarship are attached.
As members of FUSA, we hope you will take advantage of these great opportunities and wish you the best of luck!
