BOYDS, MD. (Mar. 26, 2015) — The Washington Spirit announced today a new relationship with Calvert Soccer Association (CSA) as a Youth Club Partner for the 2015 season. The Spirit Youth Club Partnerships were formed to create a unique relationship between local clubs and the Spirit with the objective of providing valuable experiences and services to area youth soccer clubs, their staff, their parents and their players.
“We’re very excited to have Calvert Soccer Association join the Spirit as a Youth Group Partner and appreciate their commitment to the Spirit,” said Ashlee Comber, Spirit vice president of operations. “We are pleased with the connection that our director of sales, Rob Bartlett has made with CSA and the relationship that they have developed.”
This relationship provides players and families in CSA with unique development opportunities, including a clinic to be held at the Calverton School this summer exclusive to the Calvert Soccer Association community and discounted tickets for CSA families throughout the 2015 season.
“I am excited about the new partnership formed between the Spirit and the club,” said Calvert Soccer Association President Mark McCormick. “Our programs are designed to provide opportunities and show the community what it takes to be successful at any level. Having a relationship with the Spirit fits perfectly with these goals. I want to thank both Ray Mahar, our Pro Team Liaison, and Rob Bartlett for their hard work developing this relationship.”
“I look forward to this new relationship with The Washington Spirit,” said Mahar. “Our players are very excited to get a chance to train and participate with these top notch professional players.”
The Policy adopted by the Board of Directors of the Calvert Soccer Association (CSA) will implement a standard operating procedure policy on managing and monitoring concussion injuries among athletes in CSA. A concussion is a mild traumatic brain injury that occurs when a blow or force to the head or body is followed by a change in behavior or performance. This policy will be effective beginning with the 2015 spring season.
Concussions MUST be taken very seriously. Putting a player back in a game with a concussion --- even a mild one--- puts them at great risk for life-long disabilities and/or fatal consequences. A concussion must be fully healed before returning to action, and only a trained physician can make that call. Coaches must protect the player from further harm and immediately remove the player from action if any symptoms appear. It is important to note that some symptoms may not appear for 24 hours, so you should take a conservative approach if you witness any head trauma. Likewise, parents must support the decision of the coaches to remove players from games if injury is suspected.

CSA, celebrating its 30th year, is proud to announce it has begun construction of CSA Park in Prince Frederick. CSA acquired the 16 acres on Arthur King Road from funds raised for the purpose of developing and improving the sports fields in Calvert County. Final plans are to build two shortsided and two fullsided size fields on the property along with parking. The two fullsided sized fields can each be configured to accomodate two shortsided sized fields for up to six total fields available. All fields will be fully irrigated and premium bermuda grass. Lighting will be added to fields as funding allows.
The new facility will not only be used to increase the inventory of fields available to CSA members for practices and games, but will also be used for showcase events, tournaments, and other special functions.
CSA currently plans to build in two phases based on availability of funds. In an effort to accelerate those plans CSA is accepting tax deductible donations.

CSA has joined forces with National Soccer Coaches Association of America, the largest soccer coaching fraternity in the US, to further the education of its coaching staff. Joining NSCAA allows CSA to provide even more resources as part of its strategy to develop coaches at all levels by providing the most comprehensive training program of any club in the area. CSA can now expand the reach of these resources more than ever before to all of its programs.
CSA Director of Coaching, Shaun Nicholson adds "As the Director of Coaching at CSA I am very excited about the partnership betweenNSCAA and CSA. Through education of our coaches, in conjunction with the NSCAA, we at CSA firmly believe our coaches will have the ability to develop modern soccer players. We understand that there is no shortcut to success only hard work, effort and education for both players and coaches. We see the NSCAA as an ideal partner in helping us develop the coaches we need to work with all players at all levels within our great club. I firmly believe in coaching education as a key factor in developing the right players for the future of the game in the USA."
CSA has adopted a core strategy to club development and our partnership with NSCAA, along with our other training partners, allows us to fulfill a key part of that strategy in the area of coach development.
