NEW!! Two New Programs for our Youngest Centennials

2-3 YEAR OLD PROGRAM - SESSIONS FULL

1-2 YEAR OLD PROGRAM - SESSIONS FULL

The Centennials, in conjunction with Super Soccer Stars (training youth soccer since 2000), will be offering two new classes specially-designed towards the 1-2 year old and 2-3 year old age groups.  Each program focuses on developing motor, social and basic soccer skills laying the foundation for participation in the Centennials Saturday Intramural Program.  Both programs will consist of eight (8) 40-minute Saturday sessions played on the same days as the Centennials Saturday Intramural Program.  All sessions are conveniently held at St. Pauls.  These pilot programs will have very limited roster openings (no more than 12 per session).  Registration will open Sunday August 14.  Click on the Intramural tab above for more detailed info about the programs and registration.


Centennials-LIJSL Club to Club and Interleague Programs Return for Fall 2022!

The Centennials are happy to again field teams in the LIJSL Club to Club and Interleague Programs!  Both of these programs give our intramural players the ability to play intramural level competition from surrounding Nassau County clubs without the time commitment of our travel program.  Club to Club players must be born in either 2015 or 2016.  Interleague players must be born in 2013 or 2014.  Rosters openings will be very limited for both programs.  We currently anticipate only one boys team and one girls team for each of 2015 and 2016 Club to Club.  Interleague teams will be combined 2013/2014 and there will be only one boy team and one girl team. Once roster caps are met there will be a waitlist.  Registration for these programs opens on Sunday August 14th.  Players must be enrolled in the Centennials Saturday Intramural Program to be eligible for the Club to Club or Interleague Program.  Each team reached its roster cap in the spring so do not delay. For more detailed information on the Club to Club and Interleague Programs and to register, click on the Intramural Program tab above.

Travel Team Tryout Registration Opens Monday May 23 posted May 22, 2022

All players (U9-U19) must register online for the 2022 Fall Tryout session to be eligible to play in the fall.  Players that are not registered for the tryout cannot be placed on a team.  Travel team tryout schedule is listed below.

Before registering, please note the following Centennials Travel Team policies:

- For all of our new U9 teams that will start playing in the fall of 2022 and for all of our rising U10 and U11 teams, players are not permitted to be rostered on a soccer club other than the Centennials. Any player found in violation of this policy will be removed from the Centennials travel team roster.

-If you choose to tryout and are selected for a team, you are committing to playing with that team.  If a player is selected and decides to play for another soccer club, that player will be prohibited from playing for a Centennials team until fall 2024.

While we encourage our players to play multiple sports throughout the year, the Centennials are looking for players to commit their soccer efforts to their team and teammates throughout the season. 

Starting in Fall 2022, our U9 Boys and Girls top teams will have full time profesional trainers in addition to the parent coach.  Trainers will attend the two weekly team training sessions and all LIJSL regular season games.  While currently only required for our boys and girls U9 top teams, many of our U9-U12 teams already take advantage of the opportunity for more trainer participation at practices and games. We strongly encourage all of our coaches and players to take advantage of the training resources the Centennials has available, including winter and summer training. 

- Unlike the Centennials Intramural Program, players are grouped by birth year and not by school grade.  Our new U9 players must be born in 2014.

- Be sure to click on the Travel Program tab on the main page of the Centennials website for other important travel tryout and travel program information.

THE CENTENNIALS RESERVE THE RIGHT TO PROHIBIT A PLAYER FROM PARTICIPATING AND/OR TO REQUEST A SPECTATOR LEAVE THE AREA OF PLAY IF THEY ARE NOT IN COMPLIANCE WITH THE SAFETY GUIDELINES AND PROTOCOLS OR IF THEY DO NOT FOLLOW ON-SITE INSTRUCTIONS OF COACHES, TRAINERS OR VOLUNTEERS.

FAILURE TO COMPLY WITH GUIDELINES AND PROTOCOLS MAY RESULT IN GAME FORFEITURE AND MAY ALSO RESULT IN OUR SEASON BEING SHUT DOWN BY LOCAL HEALTH OFFICIALS.

Players/Families/Coaches Responsibilities:

The Centennials ask that all players, families and coaches adhere to the following guidelines for the 2020 fall soccer season.

Players:

  • Players must wear face coverings when arriving and departing the field for games and training.  Players should wear face coverings while not in physical play (e.g., on the sideline as a substitution) and stay socially distanced.
  • No group celebrations, high-5s, hugs, handshakes, fist bumps etc.
  • Players should bring clearly labeled water and equipment (soccer ball).  Do not touch or share anyone else's equipment, water, food or bags.  Players should bring individual hand sanitizer.
  • Before attending games, practices or other team activity, players should not have been in close contact for 15 minutes with someone that has tested positive for COVID-19 within the past 14 days.  Notify your child’s coach immediately if your child has signs or symptoms of COVID-19 or has tested positive for COVID-19.
  • If your school is requiring you to quarantine, then you may not participate in soccer activities until you are permitted to return to school.

Coaches, Parents and Spectators:

  • Coaches, if one of your players tests positive for Covid-19, notify the Centennials intramural division coordinator immediately.
  • Coaches should wear face coverings when not actively coaching and maintain 6 feet of distance from players when actively coaching.
  • Coaches should limit their time on field with players and limit the number of coaches on the field with players.
  • No post-game team snacks. Please vacate the field immediately following your game.
  • Before attending games, practices or other team activity, check your and your child's temperature and ensure your child is healthy.  IF YOUR CHILD HAS A FEVER OF 100.3 OR MORE OR DOES NOT FEEL WELL FOR ANY REASON, PLEASE KEEP YOUR CHILD HOME. THIS ALSO APPLIES TO COACHES AND SPECTATORS.
  • Consider not carpooling or limit carpooling.
  • All spectators over the age of three must wear face coverings at all times, so long as they are medically able to tolerate such coverings. Face coverings should not be shared.
  • Spectators should practice social distancing (i.e., at least 6 feet apart).
  • We strongly recommend that families limit spectators to one person per player to limit crowding and ease social distancing, especially at St. Paul's.
  • Players, volunteers and spectators must be in compliance with the current NY State Travel Advisory quarantine requirements.
  • Players and spectators should stay in their car until shortly before your designated start time.
  • Spectators should not assist coaches with equipment before or after games/practices.
  • Follow all applicable CDC, NY State and local guidelines.

Week 4 Program sheet now available below!

It can be tough to stay motivated and active as we wait for it to be safe for group activities to resume.  Playing in the backyard and going for a walk or riding bicycles with your family are great ways to stay active.  To help keep you moving, the Centennials have put together a 6 week light conditioning and soccer skills program.  Check back here each week for the next workout sheet.

SPRING PROGRAMS CANCELATION UPDATES - posted May 3, 2020

We thank you for your patience as we worked through the consequences and questions you may have as a result of the cancelation of the spring season.  With the information we have at this time, we can announce the following regarding our intramural and travel programs:

Intramural Program

Intramural Registration Fees:  For all children that were registered for the spring 2020 intramural season, the full registration fee paid will be credited to the respective family account.  Credited amounts can be used to register the same child or any other child on the account for the fall or subsequent season.  If your child will not be playing in the intramural program this fall (e.g., aging out, playing travel or any other reason), or you have any questions or concerns, please email us at gccentennialsoccer@gmail.com.

Referee Program:  Once plans are finalized for the fall intramural season, we plan to hold new referee training sessions in late August early September.  We will communicate the dates and times, as scheduled.

C.A.P.T. Program: Unfortunately, there will not be a Centennials Advanced Training Program this summer.

Travel Program

Travel Team Tryouts:  The previously announced June tryout dates are canceled.  However, we WILL be holding tryouts for the travel teams fielding in the fall.  This will include tryouts for the upcoming U9 teams.  As for the scheduling of new tryout dates, at this time, we can only say that the 2020 tryouts will not be held prior to August 1, 2020.  We will communicate the tryout dates as soon as they are scheduled.

U9 Travel Coach Candidates:  For the new U9 teams to be formed for the fall 2020 season, in the next few weeks we will send out a solicitation and make available the application for U9 coach candidates.  All interviews will likely be held by Zoom conference call.   Please look for announcements in the GC News, on social media and in email.

Over the coming months, we will update and revise our plans as necessary and communicate to you via email, our website and our social media pages.

Additionally, our BU11 GC Hawks split their team into two and traveled to New Jersey to play in a fast-paced 5 v. 5 SOFive tournament at the Meadowlands.  The split squad played well with one team taking first place and the other second place in their respective division.

Great job by the Raptors and Hawks players, parents and coaches for keeping the teams active during the winter months!

Navigating the Competitive Culture of Youth Soccer

On November 11th, the Centennials held a parent and coach meeting for our Travel U9/U10s to recap their first Fall season and to introduce a new intiaitve that our club is rolling out to assist our parents and coaches with handling the increasingly competitive landscape of youth sports.

The GC Centennials has invested in the On Frame and The Coaching Revolution interactive books for our U9/U10 teams.  These guides, co-created by former UCLA All-American, Olympian and MLS player Patrick Ianni are a helpful tool to help us better understand the motivations for our behaviors as we navigate youth sports with our children.

Though we are only rolling this out to Travel U9/10s for now, if you want to learn more, please check out Patrick Ianni's video message to our U9/10 parents below and his website at www.iannitraining.com.  Also feel free to reach out to Centennials board member Jackie Cavallini (cavallini.jackie@gmail.com) who is spearheading this initiative for the Centennials.
