Coach Garlick recognized as Simsbury Hometown Hero
Players from all of Jerry's teams join him to celebrate.
Coach Garlick was nominated by friends, families, and players from his 25 years of coaching Simsbury Soccer teams. Jerry you truly are a hero and an inspiration to us all. Congratulations to our Hometown Hero Coach Garlick!
History of the award
Initiated in 1986 by Governor William O'Neill as part of the 350th Anniversary of the founding of Connecticut, towns were invited to designate residents as "Hometown Heroes" for any deed or service that made the community a better place in which to live. Since that time, the Town of Simsbury has recognized its own Hometown Heroes at a special ceremony.
A Selection Committee, consisting of the First Selectman, representatives of the Board of Selectmen, the Historical Society and the business community, along with a previous Hometown Hero and a member of a service or Veteran's organization reviews nominations of individuals who have demonstrated selfless and altruistic behavior which contributes significantly to the betterment of the Town.
Every few years, the Simsbury Soccer Club (SSC) requests proposals from local uniform vendors to supply the Club’s uniforms. As noted in our fall Newsletter, the Club sent out a Uniform Request for Proposals (RFP) in July to four vendors (in alphabetical order: Nike, Soccer-N-Moore, TeamSports and Vincents). The RFP was to fulfil the Clubs uniform needs beginning in the fall of 2018. The Club evaluated the responses based on three critical areas of importance to our Club.
1) Online ordering capability so families can order uniforms online easily versus manual collection of orders by coaches or team managers
2) Uniform pricing, brand availability, and quality
3) Incentives back to the Club in the form of additional equipment
We are happy to announce that starting with our Fall 2018 season, we will be using TeamSports as our primary uniform vendor. For Travel programs, we have additionally selected Adidas brand uniforms in yellow and navy. TeamSports has retail locations in Farmington, Glastonbury, and Springfield and is one of the top 20 soccer specialty retailers in the United States outfitting some 25,000 players. TeamSports has an online retail store that is first in class in the uniform ordering business and will be connected to the SSC website for ease of ordering. TeamSports was able to offer competitive pricing for Adidas brand uniforms for our Travel teams.
To note, our U5 Dinomites program curriculum and corresponding uniforms will continue as is with support from Xara/Soccer N Moore. Additionally, Vincent Sports will continue to be the vendor of choice for our U6 Soccer Fundamentals jerseys.
Congratulations to the Boys U12 Spartans for winning their bracket of the Harvest Cup! They defeated Yarmouth-Dennis when the game was decided by penalty kicks after being tied in regulation and overtime.
