Sporting CT missing bag #16 check if your children wear #16

Hello,

See email bellow if your children wear #16 please check their bag to see if that's their bag  or they took by accident somebody else bag please reach to Maggie directly. Also if your children missing Sporting CT tops there are all in shed there is about 10 jackets from this year that i found and left there so parents can pick up for their kids.

Hello Goran,
 
Are you able to send an email out regarding a backpack that was switched with another player Tuesday night? One of the 2009 boys has the wrong #16 backpack. He needs his uniform and inhalers for the tournament this weekend. We are not sure what team may have taken the bag mistakenly. I am happy to have them reach out to me to facilitate getting the bags switched.
 
Thanks,

Maggie Nardelli

The coaches will focus on offering their knowledge thru different training sessions where players will later be allowed to freely experience what they learned in a FREE play environment. Applying what you learn in a FUN and FREE environment is what learning is all about. This camp will truly help players develop their tactical understanding of the game so they can perform better for their teams during the season.

Sporting CT 2003 Boys - Nationals trip

Hello Sporting CT families,

Our Sporting CT 2003 boys had attend Nationals tournament in Aurora Colorado this past weekend. What a great exposure for our club and our team this trip was. It was nice to be around one of the best teams in USA and compete against teams from other states. We tied our first game 1-1 against team from California, second game we won 2-0 against team from NY and our last game we lost 2-0 against Columbus Ohio team.

Overall  we miss semifinals on goal differential but we are so proud of run this team had last 6-7 months. Our boys had won so many tournaments, league games, playoff games and made it to nationals as CT State cup champions. We set bars very high before season started with our goals and we made almost to the end one game short of nationals championship game but we have something to look forward next year and get better individually and as team and come back for national championship trophy...

This boys are great example for all our younger age group teams that with hard work, talent and good coaching everything is possible, we are all looking forward for more Sporting CT teams to reach this level and expirience next level of play in tournaments like this one..

Sporting CT- CT State Cup Champions

Congratulations to our Sporting CT coaches and players on winning the State Cup. When you see great success at this level it starts with the right player developmental philosophy which our club continuously works on implementing daily in all our players.

Without committed, hard working and talented players and coaches who endlessly dedicate their time and trust into our club over a long period of time, none of this would be possible.

When all the details are in place, the big picture will come once we master the execution process. It’s easy to see our goals and objectives coming to life. This is a process and it can be very beneficial if you commit yourself to it and give it your best no matter the outcome.

Patience it’s a virtue many don’t have or understand. You can’t win cups/leagues/tourneys without mastering your patience on how to overcome your struggles which will help you build a great character for the rest of your life.

Great things will come your way but you first must learn from your failures and defeats. Today our club had an amazing day by making history on winning the state cup on numerous ages for the first time ever. Our leadership and coaching team is strong and hungry to succeed.

Congratulation to 2005 girls team, 2002 girls team and 2003 boys team for making history as first Sporting CT teams to win CT State Cup and to 2004 girls team for fighting to the end and losing in 2nd  OT in the finals we are so very proud of each of you....
