Make Your Own Ball Day – Monday, October 2

MYOBD_newlogo_final

Cutters is excited to be participating in our third, “Make Your Own Ball Day” on Monday, October 2. We are looking forward to having all of our U8 Community and Jr. Cutter Travel players involved in such a great event. Please see event information below:

The mission of Make Your Own Ball Day is to use a ball to help kids create, connect, give, appreciate, and play.  MYOBD promotes and supports the passions of kids for sport and uses soccer as a platform for change. We envision a world where every kid—regardless of living conditions—has the tools and power to play.

“Our goal in MYOBD is to teach not only the love of the game and the skills and fundamentals needed to play it, but also bigger life lessons like character, leadership and service. This day was created to get us to stop for a second and think about how lucky we are and to make us realize that the world does not revolve around us.” ­ Mark Spiegel (Make Your Own Ball Day founder)

Make Your Own Ball Day.

The day will revolve around the home­made soccer balls made by each of our players. We will still play soccer but we will see the game from a new, unique and humbling perspective. We will go barefoot and play with the imperfect and misshapen soccer balls that we create.

The day originates out of a desire to show our players how lucky we are to have the things we have as well as to broaden their understanding of the game and themselves. The day is more than just fun and craziness. The day is put on for us to take a second and recognized how fortunate we are and how important it is to help/serve others. A ball can change lives and it can open a conversation about hardship, perspective and gratitude! (www.myobd.org)

Make A Ball.

There are a million ways to make a ball. You can use any material you want and make it as big or as small as you want. Make your ball prior to showing up to the event! The coaches will be making their own and we will try to have extras but PLEASE take this unique opportunity to make a ball with your player and talk about why we are doing this! It is our hope that players will show up to the event with their ball already made! (watching the videos first will help with this process)

Give A Ball.

We want this day to impact not only our players and families, but to reach out into our community and beyond to help where we can! So we are also inviting you to donate a new or lightly ­used soccer ball. We will work with the MYOBD crew to make sure this donated ball finds its way to the foot of a kid in a community where money, circumstances and life has not allowed him/her to have one before. As a club we are hoping to donate as many soccer balls as possible and join in this movement by giving to our global soccer community. So…Make a ball // Give a ball.

Schedule:

  • 6:00 to 6:45 – 4v4 games.
  • 6:45 – Speech about giving // soccer is just a game.
  • 7:00 – Group picture // video of players throwing balls in the air!

Videos:

Check out these videos and please share them with your players.

Bring a Friend Program

The Cutters Soccer Club is excited to announce our “Bring a Friend” Program for the Fall 2017 Community Soccer season. We feel that in Bloomington, soccer is an important part of its identity. We love seeing the game grow in and around the Bloomington area. This program  will allow both the participant and a friend to receive 20% off for the Fall 2017 season.

 

Notes:

 

  • In order to take advantage of this offer, please answer all questions in registration related to this program. You will pay the regular price up front, and then Cutters will provide a refund prior to the conclusion of the season.

 

  • The family being referred must not have previously participated with Cutters to be considered eligible.

 

  • Travel players may refer someone into the Community program, however, the 20% off would be based on the Community rates for their age group. So a travel player would not receive 20% off of the travel fee.

 

  • A family may refer more than one player to take part in this offer, but the 20% off will only be applied to the referring family one time (unless they have multiple children participating).

 

  • If you refer someone after you have already registered, please contact the Cutters office. You will still be eligible to be a part of this program.

 

We hope you take the opportunity to bring someone new into the Cutters family and that they will enjoy the game as much as we do.

Winter Travel Indoor League: 11U-14U Rosters/Schedule

We are excited to get the Winter Indoor League started on Saturday, December 3rd for the 11U/12U and 13U/14U groups. Our staff spent a lot of time trying to organize as competitively balanced of teams as we possibly could, while also trying to honor teammate requests. We hope the kids are looking forward to this opportunity. It’s a great time for the kids to just play, meet new teammates, and have fun. This league has been great for our club culture since we started it about 5 years ago. I am posting links below for the full season schedule and the rosters for each group. We do not anticipate making any changes at this point, though there is the potential to add a few extra players to each league.

As of now all rosters have no more than 7 players. This is great in terms of playing time, but also makes it important that everyone attends as much as possible. Please contact Tommy Berry or Michael Nosofsky with as much notice as you can when your child will be missing a game. Additionally, be sure to note the game times. We are not leaving very much room in between games so please get there on time so that we can transition from one game to the next seamlessly. We will be handing out shirts the first day so try to arrive a little bit earlier so we can take care of that prior to the game starting. Thanks so much. We look forward to seeing you all on Saturday.

Thank you for your interest in Cutters Soccer travel program. Please note the following:

  • On the day of the event, participants must check in at their birth year age group desk to pick up their identification number.
  • It is highly recommended that players attend both days of player placement for thorough evaluation.
  • All candidates must retain and wear their ID number for BOTH days of player placement.
  • All high school age players (15U-19U) will be considered members of their high school soccer team for the purpose of complying with the IHSAA “six player rule” unless otherwise noted in writing or on their pre-registration.
  • The Head Coach of the age group will conduct Player Placement and additional Cutters staff coaches will assist with the evaluations. Players will be evaluated on their technical, tactical, physical and psychological soccer abilities

Cutters Soccer Club will make every attempt to find a team for every candidate. However, this is not always possible due to roster limitations and the IHSAA 6 player rule.

Notification Process: Candidates will be contacted via email (or phone) no later than Sunday, June 19. Please be prepared to make a decision to accept or decline upon notification as it may affect other players.Player notification times may be staggered to allow for adjustments to teams as responses are collected. If notification has not occurred by midnight on Monday, June 20, please contact the Director of Coaching, Tommy Berry, at busoccer@gmail.com with copy to admin@cutterssoccer.org or 812-333-8010. Please use the following SUBJECT line: No Placement Notification: Your Name.

Team Commitment: All invited players will have 48 hours to accept or decline their roster invitation. To accept the roster invitation players must register through their Got Soccer account by making payment or applying for a scholarship online. An email of acceptance to their coach is also required. If these two requirements are not met within the 48-hour time period, the invitation may be withdrawn and distributed to another player. All 9U-14U players who accept roster invitations are committing to participate on a Cutters Soccer team for one year (the fall 2016 season and the spring 2017 season). All 15U-19U players accepting roster invitations are committing to participate on a Cutters Soccer team for the spring 2017 season. However, practices and games may begin as early as November 2016;

  • The club has the right to hold the player to this one-year commitment upon the signing of a registration form or the payment of the fee or portion thereof.
  • A supplemental tryout may be held again at the conclusion of the high school soccer season in October for 15U-19U teams that still have roster spots available.

 

Overall Cost: The basic cost breakdown is that Club Tuition fees go toward expenses of all teams in the clubs- field rentals, referees, administration, etc.  Team fees are paid to your team only and go toward activities specific to your team.

1) 2016/2017 Club Tuition TBA

2) Team Fees: These vary by team, depending on team expenses for the activities that your team chooses to participate in. These expenses can include team tournaments, indoor rentals and other activities that apply to your team only. The team fees vary, depending on the age and the number of tournaments, but generally range from $100 to $200, but can be higher for a team that participates in several tournaments. The best way to determine this cost is to speak with the team managers for your age group and ask them what they anticipate for the coming year.

3) Uniforms: New uniforms will not be required for 2016/17.

Refund Policy: If a player resigns from the club, he/she will be responsible for all club fees and charges payable to the date of registration. If a player resigns due to medical reasons that prevent play or a move out of state, then club fees will be refunded on a prorated basis minus a $50 fee. A written request to the Executive Director is required to request any refund.As you evaluate whether this Program is right for your child, and your family, please keep the following objectives of the Cutters Soccer Club in mind: To enable our players to have fun playing competitive soccer in a safe environment while building lifelong passion for the sport.

  • To teach the attributes of good sportsmanship toward teammates, opposing players, coaches and officials.
  • To provide an ongoing program of high quality, expert professional soccer training for the Cutters Soccer Club’s more dedicated and committed youth soccer players so that they can become the best players they are willing to work toward.
  • To provide continuity by requiring each player to fulfill their commitment to the team.
  • To increase the exposure of our oldest competitive soccer players to post youth soccer programs and college coaches.
  • To have a non-profit club soccer program that is financially self-sustaining.

5th Annual Soccer Golf Challenge

Golf Outing 2013

Our 5th Annual Soccer Golf Challenge will take place on Saturday, August 13th at the Taylor Par 3 Course in Bloomington from 11am – 3:30pm. For those new to this concept, we will actually be playing with soccer balls on the course. Each participant in the event will be expected to do a certain amount of fundraising using an online platform, similar to what you might see when someone is running in a marathon. The money raised will support both our Scholarship and Outreach Programs. These programs allow hundreds of children in our community the opportunity to play soccer.

This year we really want to encourage as many players as possible to participate. It’s really fun and the kids will have a blast. Each player can either fundraise on their own or in a group of 4-5. There will also be coaches, board members, and other parents participating. The online platform for fundraising is all ready to go so you can visit the link below to get signed up. We will officially begin fundraising in July, but feel free to start on your own. Please let me know if you have any questions.

Thank you for your interest in Cutters Soccer travel program. Please note the following:

  • On the day of the event, participants must check in at their age group desk to pick up their identification number.
  • It is highly recommended that players attend both days of player placement for thorough evaluation.
  • All candidates must retain and wear their ID number for BOTH days of player placement.
  • All high school age players (U15-U18) will be considered members of their high school soccer team for the purpose of complying with the IHSAA “six player rule” unless otherwise noted in writing or on their pre-registration.
  • The Head Coach of the age group will conduct Player Placement and additional Cutters staff coaches will assist with the evaluations. Players will be evaluated on their technical, tactical, physical and psychological soccer abilities

The DOC and coaches may also consider the following criteria:

  • commitment to travel soccer;
  • compliance with any “try-out” requirements;
  • past attendance;
  • past cooperation;
  • safety issues;
  • and any other issues that may relate to the player’s participation on a competitive soccer team, including prior refusal to play for the particular coach and/or prior abandonment of a competitive soccer team in the middle of a season.

Cutters Soccer Club will make every attempt to find a team for every candidate. However, this is not always possible due to roster limitations and the IHSAA 6 player rule.

Notification Process: Candidates will be contacted via email (or phone) no later than Sunday, DATE. Please be prepared to make a decision to accept or decline upon notification as it may affect other players.Player notification times may be staggered to allow for adjustments to teams as responses are collected. If notification has not occurred by midnight on Monday, June 15, please contact the Director of Coaching, Tommy Berry, at tommy@busoccer.com with copy to admin@cutterssoccer.org or 812-333-8010. Please use the following SUBJECT line: No Placement Notification: Your Name.

Team Commitment: All invited players will have 48 hours to accept or decline their roster invitation. To accept the roster invitation players must register through their Got Soccer account by making payment or applying for a scholarship online. An email of acceptance to their coach is also required. If these two requirements are not met within the 48-hour time period, the invitation may be withdrawn and distributed to another player. All U9-U14 players who accept roster invitations are committing to participate on a Cutters Soccer team for one year (the fall 2015 season and the spring 2016 season). All U15-U18 players accepting roster invitations are committing to participate on a Cutters Soccer team for the spring 2016 season. However, practices and games may begin as early as November 2015;

  • The club has the right to hold the player to this one-year commitment upon the signing of a registration form or the payment of the fee or portion thereof.
  • A supplemental tryout may be held again at the conclusion of the high school soccer season in October for U15-U18 teams that still have roster spots available.

 

Overall Cost: The basic cost breakdown is that Club Tuition fees go toward expenses of all teams in the clubs- field rentals, referees, administration, etc.  Team fees are paid to your team only and go toward activities specific to your team.

1) Club Tuition: The tuition for 2015/16 can be found here.  See information regarding our Refund Policy below.

2) Team Fees: These vary by team, depending on team expenses for the activities that your team chooses to participate in. These expenses can include team tournaments, indoor rentals and other activities that apply to your team only. The team fees vary, depending on the age and the number of tournaments, but generally range from $100 to $200, but can be higher for a team that participates in several tournaments. The best way to determine this cost is to speak with the team managers for your age group and ask them what they anticipate for the coming year.

3) Uniforms: Uniforms styles are updated periodically, but the uniforms are generally $50-$75 depending on age, and the uniforms are used for subsequent seasons.

Refund Policy: If a player resigns from the club, he/she will be responsible for all club fees and charges payable to the date of registration. If a player resigns due to medical reasons that prevent play or a move out of state, then club fees will be refunded on a prorated basis minus a $50 fee. A written request to the Executive Director is required to request any refund.As you evaluate whether this Program is right for your child, and your family, please keep the following objectives of the Cutters Soccer Club in mind:To enable our players to have fun playing competitive soccer in a safe environment while building lifelong passion for the sport.

  • To teach the attributes of good sportsmanship toward teammates, opposing players, coaches and officials.
  • To provide an ongoing program of high quality, expert professional soccer training for the Cutters Soccer Club’s more dedicated and committed youth soccer players so that they can become the best players they are willing to work toward.
  • To provide continuity by requiring each player to fulfill their commitment to the team.
  • To increase the exposure of our oldest competitive soccer players to post youth soccer programs and college coaches.
  • To have a non-profit club soccer program that is financially self-sustaining.

2015 Soccer Golf Challenge

The Cutters Soccer Club is excited to be holding our 4th Annual Soccer Golf Challenge on Monday, May 4th at the Bloomington Country Club. This event helps our club raise money for both our Scholarship and Outreach programs. We are awarding approximately $35,000 in scholarships every year, and more than 15% of the children in our club are receiving some financial aid. Additionally, the Outreach Program continues to grow as we partner with more and more organizations. We are providing free programming to hundreds of children in the area, but we need funding to allow for this continued growth.

Each participant in this will go through a grueling 9-5 day filled with soccer golf in the morning and a more traditional golf scramble in the afternoon. It is always a fun, but exhausting day. There will be coaches, board members, parents, and community members taking part in this year’s event. Each participant will have their own fundraising page, and the goal is to raise $1,000 each. If you are interested in participating please sign up below. Thanks!

Cutters’ Sponsor Appreciation Night Video

 

**For Immediate Release**

 

Cutters Soccer Club debuts new look, honors benefactors

at Sponsor Appreciation Night

 

February 9, 2015

 

Bloomington, Indiana—On Thursday, January 29, Cutters Soccer Club held their inaugural Sponsor Appreciation Night to unveil the club’s new image and honor past, current and potential future sponsors. Board members, area businesses and influential names in the soccer community were in attendance at the intimate event.

 

Sponsored and hosted by Upland Brewing Company, Cutters’ Sponsor Appreciation Night welcomed over 90 attendees with local cuisine, beer and music by Trio Collective. Esteemed guests and keynote speakers included IU Men’s Soccer Head Coach Todd Yeagley, Indy 11 Head Coach Juergen Sommer, Indiana Soccer Executive Director Dave Guthrie, and Indiana Soccer League Commissioner George Perry.

 

As part of their rebranding efforts, Cutters Soccer Club partnered with Blueline Media Productions to enhance their overall brand image and create a more user-friendly website that provides parent and player resources, highlights Community Outreach efforts and showcases club sponsors. “Cutters’ mission and values have always been in the forefront of everything we do, but we wanted that to reflect more strongly on our website and in our interaction with the community,” stated Michael Nosofsky, Director of Development.

 

Cutters’ Sponsor Appreciation Night recognized those who continue to support the club and emphasized the impact that sponsors make on the Bloomington soccer community. Sponsors defer the costs of providing scholarships to players in need and contributions allow the club to be more actively involved in civic engagement through their Community Outreach Program, providing soccer opportunities to area children’s organizations such as the Boys and Girls Club, Big Brothers Big Sisters, and the Down Syndrome Family Connection.

Community Outreach Program

What is our Community Outreach Program?

Cutters Soccer Club’s Community Outreach Program strives to bring soccer, and everything the game has to offer, to youth in Bloomington who would otherwise not have the opportunity to play. This includes those with special needs, those who are economically disadvantaged and those who identify with groups which are underrepresented in our Club or in the general soccer community. The Community Outreach Program is a free program offered by Cutters Soccer Club.

 

Who can participate?

The Community Outreach Program is open to children and young adults in Bloomington, Monroe County and surrounding areas, and has 2 components:

 

  • TOPSoccer is offered to organizations that provide support to children and adults with special needs (Down Syndrome Family Connection, Special Olympics of Monroe County). It provides the opportunity to learn and play soccer, and it also enables its participants to become valued and successful members of their soccer community.
  • Outreach is offered to youth organizations that provide after school and summer care programs (Boys and Girls Clubs of Monroe County, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Monroe County Community School Corporation School Age Care Program, Bethel AME Church, and Lighthouse Christian Academy).

 

What will the Community Outreach Program provide to its participants?

• Basic soccer skills such as dribbling, passing, shooting, juggling and elementary rules of the game through activities, games and scrimmages.

• How to play and work well with others in a team environment.

• Exercise

• Fun!

 

Questions may be directed to Michael Grubb:
