The Neutral Perspective: A Word From Our Refs

Our referees are doing a fine job this Spring season. The Grade 9 refs had a busy weekend at the Friendship Tournament in Raynham for the U10 teams. ??Please continue to abide by the Zero Tolerance Policy for any verbal communication directed towards or at the refs.

For the Spring Season, Assignor Jodi Meade will be responsible for all U10 games played in Easton and SSSL will assign all refs for U12 and higher. Please support our referees as they represent our town!

If you have any issues/problems/concerns with referees or as a referee, please contact the Easton Referee Coordinator/Assignor Jodi Meade at jodipickup@yahoo.com

Before you head out to the fields – take a few minutes to watch the videos "Attitudes are Contagious" from the link on the SSSL website under the Coaches Corner - http://www.southshoresoccer.com


ZERO TOLERANCE.
WE POSITIVELY SUPPORT ALL INVOLVED. WE NEVER ADDRESS THE REFEREE.

Ernie Branco Scholarship

Recently, Easton Soccer lost a staple of its history and success, when Ernie Branco passed away after an unfortunate accident.  Ernie was instrumental in developing and running the leagues first summer camp in 1980. This was before camps were vogue and everyone held them--our camp was one of the few around, and was always a great fundraiser for us. In its heyday it had 150+ campers at $150/player. Over the years, literally thousands of children came to the camp raising money for Easton Soccer.


Ernie was an exceptional director, supervising daily with his uniform/jerseys from the Revs, US Soccer and Portuguese league teams. For many of the campers, this was there first glimpse of soccer outside Easton. He encouraged players to watch and attend the international games and MLS games; brought in Revs players to the camps to sign autographs and have pictures taken with pro players. Many of the traditions at camps were pioneered by Ernie like crazy hair or socks day, juggling contests, a move-of-the-day or tricks with a ball were all done in the early years at his camps. My personal favorite was the Friday fun-day when there were camper vs. counselor games, parents vs. campers games and award ceremonies. His passion for the game was unparalleled and he brought that passion to Easton every moment he was here. For many, that passion was infectious and it influenced those that he touched. The camp was great PR for Easton Soccer and was instrumental in solidifying the stellar reputation the league enjoyed in the Easton community.


The Ernie Branco Scholarship Fund and the Ernie Branco Classic Golf Tournament have been established to honor his time and commitment to so many individuals.  For more information on the Scholarship and Golf Tournament visit the web page below.

Parent Trap

 

PARENT TRAP

Each year Easton Soccer awards graduating seniors two scholarships. This year the recipients were Oliver Ames High School Seniors Kelsey Bliss and Corinne Herlihy. Their involvement with Easton Soccer over the years as players, coaches, or volunteers; their strong community service history and soccer achievements as well as extracurricular activities all went into deciding that they would be this year’s recipients.

For the first time this year, Easton Soccer has awarded the Jim Hanley Memorial Scholarship. In February 2012, when Jim Hanley’s battle with cancer came to an end, Easton lost an outstanding member of the community as well as a strong supporter and member of the Easton Soccer Family. This scholarship is awarded to a college bound, Oliver Ames graduating senior; someone who has demonstrated courage and commitment in a time of adversity. The recipient need not be a soccer player. The 2013 Jim Hanley Memorial Scholarship was awarded to Brittany Cann.

Easton Soccer extends their Congratulations to this year’s recipients and to all of the graduating seniors.
