Silent Sidelines!
by posted 10/20/2019


Silent Sidelines Reminder Shh....Just Let Them Play

Each Fall and Spring playing season the Board of Directors shall sponsor a statewide Silent Sidelines weekend. Coaches will be permitted to give players direction from the sidelines. Spectators will be directed to refrain from making any comments to players, coaches or referees, but will be permitted to applaud efforts by players." Referees are not responsible for the enforcement of this rule. It is the clubs responsibility to inform your spectators of the guidelines for Silent Sidelines.

The Spring Silent Sidelines weekend will be the third weekend of May and the Fall Silent Sidelines will be the third weekend of October (10/19-20).

The goals of Silent Sidelines Weekend are to:

1. Develop our players to make decisions on the field without sideline intervention.
2. Improve the players' communication on the field by reducing the outside noise level.
3. Support our youth referees by eliminating dissension from the sidelines.

This rule was drafted and passed at the request of a CJSA player.

We need to help our players develop without the continued interference from the sidelines.

The objective is to promote greater awareness of this development by coaches and parents as well as the players and referees.


We are requesting that all spectators remain silent on these weekends.

For the sake of our kids, we are asking for one weekend where we stand back and just let the players play.

We would like to provide each player at least one game of their season that is free of the distractions

caused by spectators screaming and yelling at them.


This program was first sponsored by CJSA in September 2000 and was successful.

Many players stated they enjoyed the opportunity to communicate with their teammates and be heard. One player, Tommy Schanzer, enjoyed the experience so much that he spearheaded a movement to bring back Silent Sidelines each season.
 

The guidelines are simple.

Spectators are to be quiet, talking in a normal tone to the person next to them.

What is to be avoided are comments that can be heard by players, referees or opponents. Applause is permitted and encouraged.


The program works. It has increased the awareness by both coaches and parents of the players' development. In addition, it has increased referee retention.


Your help is needed. We are asking everyone in CJSA to promote and support Silent Sidelines Weekend and give the game back to the kids.

 

(The below message is a modification of Andrea Duffy's May '02 Presidents Message.)

A mother was making a breakfast of fried eggs for her teenage son. Suddenly the boy bursts into the kitchen....


"Careful! Careful! Put in some more butter! Oh my goodness! You're cooking too many at once. TOO MANY! Turn them! TURN THEM NOW! We need more butter. Oh my! WHERE are we going to get MORE BUTTER? They're going to STICK! Careful!... CAREFUL! I said CAREFUL! You NEVER listen to me when you're cooking! Never! Turn them! Hurry up! Are you crazy? Have you lost your mind? Don't forget to salt them. You know you always forget to salt them. Use the salt. USE THE SALT! THE SALT!"
The mother stared at him. "What's wrong with you? You think I don't know how to fry a couple of eggs?"


The son calmly replied, "I just wanted to show you what it feels like when I'm trying to play soccer."

2019 FALL - TOURNAMENT WEEKEND!
by posted 10/12/2019


 

- 2019 FALL -

TOURNAMENT WEEKEND!

 

Dear WSA Travel Soccer families,

Another tournament weekend is upon us. We are hopeful for great weather, healthy competition and lots of fun for all.  

In advance of the weekend, we thought we would share a few thoughts. 

For our parents/fans - encourage all players on both teams, cheer positively for our team, be respectful of referees at all times, and avoid sideline coaching and any negativity at all cost. 

Share highlights of your day by tagging WSA on Facebook with emphasis on the camaraderie and spirit of our teams in action. 

 

Most of all, have fun and represent WSA and Wilton well by demonstrating great enthusiasm, but above all else, great sportsmanship.  

Go Warriors!

 

Embrace #OneTownOneTeam

Set up WSA “home bases” at key field locations with tents for players and families across teams and age groups to congregate and visit.

At games in Wilton, locations like Merwin Meadows (at the park) and Allen’s Meadows (under the tree) are perfect spots for this!

If you are playing in a neighboring town, scout out a good location and connect with other teams to cheer each other on!

Tournaments are also a great way to connect with players on other teams and towns. Having so many teams in one place is the eptiome of soccer community!

 

For our U9 Travel Development teams,

Mystique, Marvels, Majestic, Iron Men, Spidermen and Hulks (all perfectly named for the Halloween season!) who are each participating in their first ever tournament, please note the following:

  • This is all about having fun and continuing to learn the game. 

  • The levels of competition we will play may be different (stronger or weaker) than teams we have played against to date — take it in stride, ask players to simply do their best, play together and enjoy the experience. 

  • Last help your players find and cheer on all the participating WSA U9 teams comprised of their friends, #OneTownOneTeam!

Winter Indoor Soccer

 

Hard to believe, but after the Fall season ends, there will be snow on the ground and we'll be missing the chance to run and kick a ball around with friends. Some folks are asking about Winter already!

We are enjoying our time on the fields playing the sport we love (and hope you are too!) and will announce the schedule, dates and registration as soon as possible.
