The Hartford Courant reported out the Glastonbury shut out against Darien but the focus of the story was the advancement to the State Finals. Glastonbury will make a return trip to the finals and take on fourth seeded Farmington. Last season the Tomahawks tied Ridgefield to share the state championship. Helping to secure this victory in the semi-finals were goals by Tyler Peterson and Nick Kapelewski.
We hope to fill the stands with Glastonbury soccer fans so come on out and cheer on the team !! Game will be at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, 11/15 at Willowbrook Park in New Britain.
And check out the press on our recent win .... congrats again to the team and coaches !! We are in the FINALS !!!
The Tomahawk's Journey - Inspirational in Some Many Ways!
Kevin Nathan from NBC Connecticut reported out on how three generations of Landers are behind the success of Glastonbury's state title bound boys soccer team--and that is only part of the reason the Tomahawks are so inspirational. Check out the coverage/footage in the link below !!
Although a bit of a chill in the air, families came out in droves to cheer on their soccer stars !! It was truly a family event and we hope that folks enjoyed the soccer, photo day, food and all the activities. Special thanks to our sponsor Kohls!
It was a beautiful day for PreK end of season events!! Our youngest soccer players showed their energy, skills and best of all - the love of the game!! We took some great pictures as our Pre-K players enjoyed "snowball fights" with their soccer balls and looked to escape the "spells" of the coaches and parents by doing foundations. The season ended with distribution of trophies and team pictures. Thanks for a great season everyone !
There were smiles, giggles and cheering on Saturday for the long awaited game against the GHS Varsity Boys team. The TOPSoccer players and peer mentors were pumped and quickly positioned on the field for the game. Families lined the sidelines and were quick to erupt with applause for each goal the TOPSoccer players notched against the spirited GHS boys soccer team. Emotions were high and the love of soccer and team was evident everywhere you turned. It was a great day at Rotary Fields for soccer and a reflection of the great program celebrating its 10 years !
The Outreach Program for Soccer, better known as TOPSoccer, is a Hartwell soccer program designed to bring the opportunity of learning and playing soccer to children from kindergarten through high school with developmental disabilities. The TOPSoccer program enables these special athletes to play at levels consistent with their skills, not necessarily their age. Volunteer coaches lead players and peer mentors in fun-filled and informative sessions of soccer skill-building and small-sided games. Soccer games are on Saturdays at 2:30 p.m. at Rotary Fields. We meet for 6 – 8 weeks in the fall, starting in early September and again in the spring, starting in late April.
The Hartwell TOPSoccer League is celebrating its 10-year anniversary in 2014! The team has played for 20 straight seasons thanks to the incredible support of Hartwell, generous volunteer coaches, peer mentors and the many loyal families who continue to come back season after season. TOPSoccer provides an invaluable opportunity for children to play soccer who might not otherwise have the chance.
