Marist Women to Host Soccer Clinic Feb 22
Wednesday, February 11, 2015

The Marist Women's Soccer team is holding a youth soccer clinic on Sunday February 22, 2015 to help benefit a foundation known as the Friends of Jaclyn Foundation. They have invited members of Hyde Park United youth teams to this event.

The purpose of this foundation is to help support and spread awareness about children who are fighting pediatric brain tumors.  In doing so, the foundation matches up children and their families with college and high school sports team. Through this a child is given companionship, love, and care in a desperate time of need.

All proceeds from this clinic will go towards supporting the Friends of Jaclyn Foundation. The day will consist of fun drills, team competitions, and scrimmages all run by the members of the Marist Women's Soccer Team.

It is true, real men wear PINK!  In recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness month the Hyde Park Blazers BU16 travel team decided to order pink jerseys to show their support of an important cause at their Columbus Day tournament.  The boys decided to extend the use of this jersey for the full month of October.  Great job Blazers and good luck on the field!



Heads up: Concussion in Youth Sports
Thursday, September 11, 2014

To help ensure the health and safety of young athletes, CDC developed the Heads Up: Concussion in Youth Sports initiative to offer information about concussions to coaches, parents, and athletes involved in youth sports. The Heads Up initiative provides important information on preventing, recognizing, and responding to a concussion.  All coaches are now required to gain certification in recognizing the symptoms of concussions in youth sports.  The CDC has provided excellent information to help parents, players and coaches recognize the severity of this common injury.



New Elementary Division Structure
Thursday, August 14, 2014

As our program has grown we are fortunate to be able to restructure our elementary division to better focus the age groups on development.  We are introducing an Early, Middle and Late Elementary division structure. 

Early Elementary will serve as a tranisition to the bigger field for 1st graders.  They will use the season to get used to a referee on the field and to adjust a larger number of players on the field.  This will remain a Saturday only commitment with a training session prior to the game each week (similar to their PeeWee experience).  Middle Elementary will be for 2nd and 3rd grade players and will introduce a mid week practice.  Late Elementary will be for 4th and 5th grade players and will introduce additional soccer rules such as offsides. 

We are excited about this structure as it narrows the range of ages in each division and will set up a strong development environment for all players involved.
