There will be no practices on Monday May 25th in observance of The Memorial Day Holiday! There is no TOP Soccer session Friday May 22nd!
ONLY 3 DAYS LEFT TO REGISTER FOR TRAVEL!!!!!!!!
Our club travel level tryouts are next week. As of right now, there will be age groups who have always had a travel team that will not in the fall. This is due to lack of registrations for the tryouts. I implore you to please go to the Bristol Soccer Club website and register.
Bristol Soccer Club TRAVEL Program:
The Bristol soccer club travel program/tryout has not changed whatsoever from previous years. Although, we are taking a Quality not Quantity approach to Travel at the Bristol Soccer Club.
Children looking to play travel level soccer are REQUIRED to try out to be considered for the BSC team. These tryouts are next week only. There will be no future makeup dates to fill teams.
Deadline for registration is Sunday, May 24, 2015 at Midnight.
To register for the Bristol Soccer Club travel tryouts:
Bristol Rush - Town Hall Meeting/Information Table
CT RUSH BRISTOL - Town Hall Meeting
We are excited to announce a 2nd Town Hall type meeting regarding CT Rush Bristol Premier. CT Rush will be presenting information along with a Q&A session concerning the program overview. This is a perfect setting for you to learn about premier, our partnership, the program and it's impact for your child. Below please find the details regarding this informational meeting for those looking to pursue premier.
Date: Wednesday, May 20, 2015
Where: Bristol Soccer Club
We look forward to seeing you on Wednesday. Also, a CT Rush booth will be set up this weekend at the Bristol Soccer Club for you to get information regarding tryouts and program. This information will be helpful to prep for questions during the Town Hall Meeting. Stop by if you get a chance!!!!!!
We are pleased to announce the Bristol Soccer Club Travel tryout schedule for 2015/16. Please sign in through the Bristol Soccer Club website and register your child for the tryouts.
Our mission here at the Bristol Soccer Club is to provide children of all skill levels the ability to have a positive experience playing soccer. Travel is more competitive. This means that the level of play is more advanced as well as the development of the player is expected to exceed. With that said, the focus is still on development and fun, just in a more advanced stage.
Travel tryout schedule:
U8 Dev, U9-U11
U8 Dev, U9-U11

The Saturday (5/30) tryout date is a makeup session for any child who is unable to attend one of the prior sessions, as well as to account for any possible weather related cancelations.
**BREAKING NEWS** Spring Updates you NEED to know!!!
Bristol Soccer Club - Spring 2015 Newsletter
Well, the snow has finally stopped falling (we hope!), so now we can officially turn our attention to the upcoming spring soccer season. And with that, comes the news you need to know from the clubhouse.
New Partnership with Plainville Soccer Club
As some of you may have read on our Facebook page, we have entered into a partnership with our neighbors, the Plainville Soccer Club, to merge our U9+ recreational soccer divisions. What does this mean for you? Well, mostly it means more kids playing soccer, which is never a bad thing. It may also mean that some games will be played at Norton Park, which is right around the corner, less than ten minutes from our club. This is a huge win for both clubs and we look forward to a great first season together.
Premier Soccer Partnership
Again the rumor mill has been working overtime, and again, this time it proves to be right! It has recently been announced that the Bristol Soccer Club has entered into a partnership agreement with the CT RUSH premier club to form the Bristol Rush premier soccer program. Please see the attached press release with the details. As many of you are aware, we have a very successful and competitive travel program (see the earlier release about the U11 girls CT Cup champions last spring!), so this partnership represents the next step in the development of a competitive soccer program. Keep your eyes and ears open for more information as we set dates for tryouts, etc.
Each year for the last 18 years we have held a golf tournament to support and fund the Courtney Hei-Ra Smith Memorial Scholarship fund. This year as we plan the 19th annual tournament, we have moved to a new course (Hawk's Landing in Southington) and reduced pricing. Save the date now, as the tournament will be held July 1st and registration will opening soon!
For real?! The snow isn't even melted, and the spring season hasn't even started yet, but yes, we are planning out the summer camp schedule already! You will start to see announcements shortly regarding upcoming summer camp programs and reservation procedures.
I know most of you already picked up your candy, and hopefully sold it all! If you were unable to attend one of the pickups, please feel free to stop down during our field cleanup day. Currently planned for April 4th, weather and snowmelting permitted, it's a great opportunity to come down and help prepare the fields for the spring and grab a couple boxes of candy to sell. You might even be able to sell a few bars to the other volunteers who have worked up an appetite!
Did you know that the Bristol Soccer Club is an all volunteer run organization? It's true! And we are always looking for help, be it coaching (no previous soccer experience required!), cleanup (Spring cleanup is scheduled for April 4th, but may get pushed out if there is still white stuff clinging to the ground), soliciting sponsorships or organizing events, like the golf tournament. If you are interested, reach out to one of the board members listed on the site, or send us an email or a Facebook message.
That's it for now, but keep watching your email and our website for more announcements and like us on Facebook for information and announcements
