Trouble shooting tip: If you click this link, and log in, and find that it resets and does not log you in, I have had success going to and then search "Newington Soccer Blue Sombrero". I then click the link that is provided by Google. The reason I think this works is that I think Blue Sombrero Makes updates to the site and that changes something and it prevents you from logging in. When I try it, and when others try that work around, they are able to get in to their account.



Do you Have Questions or want to attend a board meeting?

Volunteers Needed: Rembember we're only as strong as our volunteers!

Help is needed for the Fall 2012 Season:

Please Help!!! Our Recreational side of Soccer urgently needs Parent Coaches for the F Division and Monday/Wednesday Girls Micro coaches. If you want to share the help, volunteer for an assistant coach position. It gives you a great chance to be even more involved in your child's life! 

Recreational division Coaches and Assistant Coaches for Girls and Boys programs are needed. If you're from College and want to help coach, that'd be great. If you're a parent who always wanted to do a little more for the kids of newington, then please consider volunteering.  For Girls Rec Contact: Lauren Windish at  For Boys Rec Contact: Brian Wood at
