Registration InformationUpdated Thursday May 31, 2018 by Manager NCTRSL.
Hello Northwest Connecticut Recreational Soccer League Families!
We are happy to announce that due to the great success Barkhamsted Soccer had last year with the addition of a newly implemented website and on-line registration process, we have extended our reach, increased our capabilities, and enhanced some of our features (like mobile access, text messaging, and merged calendars). We are also happy to be able to include and welcome all of the towns involved in youth soccer. This is a consorted effort of the unification of the towns of Barkhamsted, Colebrook, Hartland, Norfolk, and Winsted that make up our soccer league now called Northwest Connecticut Recreational Soccer League (NCTRSL). Our goal is to bring our towns together via a co-operative website and registration that will hopefully increase your enjoyment of the season; allow stress-free access to information, schedules, and other people; ease communication by sending reminders as well as instant notification messages/texts; shared and coordinated cross-town certified referees, rules, & code of conduct; and to streamline the entire leagues’ administration within and across all the towns.
A few things of note:
o Registration starts early this year – June 1st until August 12th.
o Due to the extended registration period, after August 12th, there will be a $25 late fee per registration.
o Each town will be offering varying discounts for families, number of children registering, or reduced options based upon past registration options.
o You will have an option to register and pay online or send in a check. A choice will be given at the end of the payment process.
o Regardless of town, all players must register on the website to participate.
o To register starting June 1st, please visit the league website: www.nctrsl.com
