Weston is a small, but very tight community. There’s great spirit in our town and that sense of community, and spirit, transfers directly to our sports teams. Weston Soccer Club, by way of example, has represented our town exceptionally well, for a great many years now and, its success, particularly in recent years, has been absolutely phenomenal. From CT Cup wins, league titles, and a plethora of tournament triumphs, feeding right up to the High School’s historic SWC success in late 2018, our teams have surpassed expectations, of us, and our neighbors, time and again.
For all of our on field success though we are at least as proud of how the soccer club, and Weston, the community, has come together in a heartwarming gesture of global goodwill in helping out those less fortunate than ourselves enabling them to participate in ‘the beautiful game’. One of the former Soccer Edge coaching staff, and town favorite, Thiago Melo, was the catalyst, and the link between Weston and the Viva Mais soccer organization, that was formed in 2017.
Based in Cordeiro, within the state of Rio de Janeiro, Viva Mais is a non profit organization and Weston’s donations have enabled approximately 90 children to play soccer. This means that the kids no longer have to play barefoot, the cleats and running shoes are literally a game changer for them, not to mention the shirts, shorts and balls. But the generosity goes further with Cordeiro FC also benefitting. All in all the soccer equipment donated has benefitted approximately 300 players, ranging from U9-U20, in this region of Brazil. The pictures speak for themselves, suffice to say that they are overjoyed at the opportunity to play in the same sort of gear that we are so fortunate to take for granted. Not only that, they now have new uniforms also, enabling them to play games and enter tournaments.
Imagine the transformation for this strictly voluntary organization, playing barefoot in dirt, to new kits and tournament play on proper grass soccer pitches. Weston did its part to make that happen, as did our friend Thiago, and people like Alicir Goncalves (pictured with Thiago above), who’s tireless enthusiasm locally organizes everything putting in countless hours to make this a reality.
As for Thiago, the following is a short summary, in his words:
‘As it is a volunteer job, Alcir the person in charge of the organization has no qualifications to give to the kids the best practice possible, however, he does everything with LOVE. The city hall unfortunately doesn’t help him with “anything”. It is one of the reasons why I feel that I need to help them with the best I can, and of course to help them, it comes from the deepest of my heart because one day I was one of those kids.
They are from a poor community and Alcir who is in charge of the organization works full time during the week with family and kids to take care of and he spends the weekend giving to those kids the best they can have. For example he with his church organized a party last December in a nice place with nice soccer fields, pool and very decent Brazilian barbecue where I could come and enjoy the party with them. All the kids could bring their parents and have a great time socializing and have a very decent end of the 2018 year celebration.
So a thank you to the Weston community and Weston Soccer Club, look out for the next Pele in a few years’ time, maybe he or she came from Viva Mais or Cordeiro FC.

*Why do we run registration for the fall now?
Our members sometimes ask us why we run registration for Fall Travel programs a few months in advance of the season. There are a number of factors that influence our decision to complete registration now. First, we need to have solid registration numbers as soon as possible so that we can understand our coaching needs and allow our professional coaching organizations ample time to find quality coaches for our programs. Significant lead time is required, especially when handling immigration issues. Second, our non-profit club incurs significant costs in order to provide our children the opportunity to play soccer. Many of these costs, such as equipment, maintenance, and insurance, are incurred well in advance of the season. Other clubs in our area require a two-season commitment from their Travel players and require registration for both fall and spring seasons at this time. We have not done this, and allow our players to play only one season if they so choose. Allowing this flexibility, however, requires that we complete our registration programs in a timely manner.
