SCHEDULES & DIRECTIONS
Nothing this site offers is more important than schedules and directions.
Start on the home page by clicking the “BSC Teams” tab at the top. On the next page, use the drop-down menus to find the correct season, the correct Age Group for your child (e.g. “Micros” or “U-12 Girls”), and then on the right side drop-down list, find the specific team. Once there, you can click on “Schedule” on the left navigation bar to find your team’s schedule for the season.
Click the + sign next to each game to see more information, including directions to the field, whether it’s a game in Branford or out of town.
From that page you can also print or download the season schedule, or information and directions to individual games.
Printable directions to out-of-town fields are additionally available from the home page by clicking the “Area Fields” button on the left nav bar. And please, if you find any of these directions contain errors, let us know by clicking the “Feedback” button on the home page. We’ll fix it. Or we’ll move the field so it matches the directions.
Individual team pages also have contact information for every team’s coach, while on the home page, the “Contacts” button on the left nav bar tells you how to get in touch – by phone or email -- with Branford Soccer Club board members, coordinators, coaches, and others.
Most of the ways you can volunteer to help the Branford Soccer Club, and your child, do not require any soccer knowledge. It's true. So there are no excuses. Well at least not that one. Please go to our Volunteer! page to learn how you can help.
It’s raining. It's cold. Do I really have to drive all the way to Oxford? To find out, check the site’s home page. The scrolling message across the top will let you know -- as soon as it possible to know -- if local fields are closed or if travel games have been cancelled. Please understand that it may not be possible to know if games are on or off until an hour before game time. This is frustrating for parents, coaches, and the club alike. Honest.
On the home page you'll even see what's happening with the local weather, with a link to a 5-day forecast. Sorry, but we don't cancel practices based on the 5-day forecast, as much as our kids might like that.
www.BranfordSoccer.org is the place to go to find out everything from tryout schedules to board meetings to game results. If we're in tournaments, if we're running special programs, contests or clinics – whatever the club is doing -- we’ll try to post it here as early as we can.
COACHING HELP AND DRILLS
Coaches (and parents and players) can click on the "Skills and Drills" tab at the top of the site to learn where they can print out drills and entire practce plans for their teams.
We’ve also tried to make it easier for coaches by allowing them to view their rosters and team contact information online. Coaches who go to their team pages can click "Roster" and enter their individual team password given to them by their league coordinator. If you’ve forgotten your password, click the “Feedback” button and let us know.
Coaches can also send emails to their entire team from the site, and post messages and news items to and about their teams.
Click the “Links” tab on the home page to view a list of sites we think will be helpful and/or interesting, from other town’s club sites to web sites that offer soccer tips and drills. We'll be constantly adding to this as well.
Little may you realize how important sponsors are to your child's soccer experience. Companies and individuals that sponsor BSC teams make it possible for the club to keep the fields and equipment in shape, run seminars for coaches, and hire professional soccer trainers to come in each week and teach your young players.
If you’re a parent, please support them by clicking the “Our Sponsors” page and giving them your business. If you’re an area businessperson, please consider becoming a BSC sponsor, for which, among other things, you’ll get an ad on the BSC web site and, hopefully, the custom of some grateful parents.
Click the "Be a Sponsor" tab for more information.
LOST AND FOUND
Clicking the "Lost & Found" link on the right-hand side of the home page takes you to an area where you can post items you want to swap, items you're looking for, or things you've lost or found at one of the fields. Got a pair of size 4 cleats your child has grown out of? Found a soccer ball belonging to a "Kevin," or possibly "Keiran"? This is the place to post what you've found, or what you want or need.
If you have questions, comments, suggestions or, well, “issues” about anything regarding the Branford Soccer Club, please let us know by clicking the “Feedback” tab on the home page.
Seriously. We want to hear from you. After all, the BSC is volunteer organization made up of parents just like you. (Okay, possibly slightly more obsessive than you, but you get the point.)
Thanks, and have a great season.
