We have received reports of players/siblings climbing on the walls at Glenside and getting hurt. Please help us keep your children safe by reminding them that they are not allowed to climb the wall. If you are chaperoning a practice we would appreciate it if you would help keep children off the wall.
Let's do our part. After every practice/game please have all players clean up their trash. Even better try to send your child to the field with a reusable water bottle.
The new configuration will add 60+ new spaces and possibly reconfigure the current spaces for greater/safer traffic flow.
The first stage which will begin in the next few weeks is to grade the area first with the county grader, once graded, both Summit and Union County DPW will haul and spread stone to the area. The stone will be rolled and left to sit for a couple weeks ( it can be driven on while stoned).
As a reminder please do not park in front of the County Police Gate as they often respond to weekend emergencies and need access to the dogs and equipment.
Match Fit Summit Regional Elite tryouts: REGISTRATION OPEN
With a successful inaugural year for Match Fit Summit Regional Elite ("MFSRE") almost in hand, Summit Soccer Club ("SSC") is excited to announce its intention to expand the MFSRE program for the 2014/2015 season.
After careful consideration by the SSC board of directors including the gathering of feedback from parents, coaches and trainers, SSC has authorized Match Fit to conduct tryouts to form up to three teams in the following age/gender categories:
Rising U-12 Girls (current u11's)
Rising U-11 Boys (current u10's)
Rising U-12 Boys (current u11's and our current formed team)
For additional information about the MFSRE program and Match Fit Academy, to see tryout schedules and to register for tryouts, go to the Match Fit Academy tab above.
Happy New Year! Since we are in the off season, this would be a great time to have your child take their baseline concussion test.
Unfortunately it is no longer an uncommon occurrence to hear of a child suffering a concussion whilst participating in a sport.
With this in mind, Summit Soccer is strongly encouraging all parents to have their player(s) take a baseline concussion test. In the event of a suspected concussion, doctors can use the baseline test as a diagnostic tool to aid in determining whether or not concussion has occurred.
The test is administered by Overlook Hospital but taken using a home pc, and takes about 30 minutes. Your player must be 10 years old or over to be eligible to take the test.
It is important that the test is conducted pre-season, ideally prior to the first practice. Don't delay - please make time to do this within the next few weeks.
Summit Soccer would like to monitor the take-up rate for this test, therefore we ask that you e-mail Jenny Hodges at
to confirm that your child has completed the test.
Please be aware that the road leading onto Glenside Field (when you pull into the driveway to the right of the handicap parking) is the emergency access road for an ambulance. Under no circumstances should anyone be parking in this area.
Visitors should follow all signage to avoid parking tickets, avoid parking on emergency driveway to field, and carpool whenever possible to reduce congestion due to limited number of parking spaces.
