Hi, I’m James Revillini, Webmaster and Assistant Coach for New Hartford Youth Soccer. I’m looking for a few good minions to help with content for this site. The kinds of contributions that would be useful are:
Got something to say about your team, your coach, or the New Hartford Youth Soccer League? We would love to post it somewhere on the site!
If you have some stunning shots from the field, please send them in.Note: there are some strict rules about photo submissions which are available below and also on the photo submission form to ensure privacy and safety.
I’d be happy to post some well-written tips, tricks, or how-to’s about specific skills and/or strategies that could benefit our players and coaches.
Submissions of well-written essays or articles about the sport and the New Hartford Youth Soccer experience are most welcome. Maybe something about the experience of being a “soccer mom or dad,” an essay about playing from the eyes of a player, or a memoir about the skills learned here that transcend soccer and shape our lives …
Lastly, I just want to wish everyone an exciting and fun year, and I look forward to seeing you all on the field. Of course, if you have any suggestions about the site, don’t hesitate to get in touch.
All My Best.
Photo Submission Guidelines
- Anyone depicted in a photograph must sign (or have their parent sign) a model release. It’s a pain in the neck, but it’s necessary for legal reasons. A copy of the model release must be submitted with the 1st photo of the model. Subsequent photos of that model do not require another release.
Sample Release for Adults Sample Release for Minors
For help in generating and using model releases, contact the webmaster.
- Try to limit the amount of brand names and logos (e.g. Nike, Domino’s) depicted in the photos. Notice I’m saying try. It’s nearly impossible to not capture a logo here or there.
- Please send only high-resolution, high quality shots which are well-composed. You can take excellent pictures with an iPhone or Android, but lighting and composition is key.
- Understand that we’re not building an image gallery of random shots from the season, and all submissions will not necessarily be posted. The website is like a magazine. Would you submit the picture to Time? Then we want it! All other shots can be safely shared using social networks like Facebook or Google+.
