The Simsbury Soccer Club (SSC) exists to promote player's appreciation of soccer, to develop player's skills necessary for team play, to provide equal opportunity for the development of individual players, and to accommodate every Simsbury youth who wants to play, regardless of ability level.

 

The SSC philosophy stresses the development of player's physical fitness and fundamental soccer skills, but equal emphasis is placed on good sportsmanship, building lasting friendships, and the sheer fun of participation.

New Fall Uniforms

New Fall Uniforms

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.
