The soccer club is planning to march in the Columbus Day Parade on Sunday October 12th. All soccer players and coaches are encouraged to join us (and parents are always welcome as well!)
This year, club VP Alan Tomaszewski has built a float for the club that will really be a crowd pleaser! Coach Steve will act as MC from the float and we are working on getting donations to be given away to the crowd. A limited number of players will ride on the float and others will march along side/behind giving away favors to the crowd or possibly juggling their soccer balls! Players should wear their current uniform shirt, shorts and sneakers.
Here are the details:
The parade starts at 1pm from the Middle School parking lot.
Parking is at the High School parking lot
Players/parents should meet at the soccer club float in the middle school lot at 12:15
Parents should meet their children at the end of the parade route (corner of Broadway and Church)
a shuttle is available to bring marchers back to their cars at the high school
We hope to have a great turnout of marchers to represent our club!

ELKS SOCCER SHOOT September 21st. The Hamden Elks 2012 Soccer Shoot will be held on Sunday, September 21 at the Hamden Middle School Field. Registration begins at 9:00, followed by the competition at approximately 10:00 am. There are four age brackets: 7 and under, 8 to 9, 10 to 11 and 12 to 13, ages as of August 1. There is no charge for the competition and entrants do not have to be soccer players. The younger entrants will kick soccer balls at various size goals. Older entrants will kick at a more difficult goal, able to score higher points in different goal areas. The boy and girl winners in each bracket will advance to a district event, then state and regional meets. The winners will be presented trophies at the Youth Awards Banquet to be held at a later date. Entrants must be residents of Hamden or North Haven to qualify for the Hamden Elks Lodge Shoot.

These programs are run by Elk Lodges in communities around the country. The National Elks organization annually spends over $4 million for youth programs. The Hamden Elks Lodge #2224 is proudly celebrating its 50th year serving the communities of North Haven and Hamden.
