Welcome to the Sterling House Athletics Website
 Memorial Day Weekend
There will be no spring soccer games and no instructional soccer sessions this weekend. Sterling House will be closed from Saturday thru Monday for the holiday weekend. 
Happy Memorial Day
 Memorial Day is a good time to reflect on the sacrifices and services of
the American soldiers and veterans and the U.S. military men and women. The
American military is, has always been and will always recruit the best and
finest of the crop of young men and women of the country and we will continue to shower them with appreciation, support and prayers, as we have always done.
Memorial Day is just an opportunity for us to express the special places they
have in the hearts of American citizens and more by honoring the people who
work in the various branches of the military.

 Recreational Soccer
"Here's my advice: Don't give yourself agita over winning and losing. Make sure your kid is having fun"

This column by Editor Mike Daly was in the Sunday Post on the editorial page. Click here for the entire piece. See below for the part about Sterling House.

The soccer fields at David Wooster Middle School in Stratford were aswarm with kids on a recent Saturday, kids as far as the eye could see.

Little kids. Some bigger and older than others, certainly. Little kids, nonetheless.

Whistle bursts punctured the general din. Referees, some not that long departed from the ranks of little kids themselves, scrambled about, keeping order and pointing players in the right direction.

This is the Sterling House soccer program in Stratford. Sterling House has a well-admired program. They get it right on any number of fronts, one of which is that they keep no standings.

They understand the meaning of the word "recreation" as it applies to organized soccer.

So all around Connecticut, little kids and their parents and coaches and referees, many of them new to the situation, are taking to the fields.

Here's my advice: Don't give yourself agita over winning and losing. Make sure your kid is having fun.

Player, coach and spectator pledge to be remembered when participating in our athletic programs: I understand that: the Sterling House youth sports recreational leagues promote fun, development, participation and sportsmanship; official records and standings are not kept; all team members must play at least one half of every game; I must control my emotions as a positive example for all players, opponents, and spectators; and I must respect the referees and supervisory staff who represent Sterling House, the Stratford Recreation Dept. and the Board of Education. I will do my best to respect the school property we are allowed to use. I understand that the Stratford Youth Sports Association (SYSA) member organizations promote a drug free and smoke free sporting environment for youth.

Please support our sponsors!
