MUSC Cares: Because We Are a Community Within a Community

For several years, MUSC Rec has run two annual programs that stress the importance of giving back to the community. These two initiatives, run entirely by volunteer youth, have been enormously successful as a result of the generous members of our club. Our annual food drive, Souper Soccer Saturday, has fed thousands of families in the Morrris County area and our end of season uniform and equipment collections have provided used soccer gear to kids throughout the world that have never worn a uniform or owned a pair of cleats.

MUSC Rec Uniform & Equipment Donation Day

For the past nine seasons, MUSC Rec has asked families to donate their old uniforms, shin guards & cleats at the end of each season. The uniforms sets and equipment have been shipped to various charitable organizations around the world to be donated to kids that are passionate about the game, but lack the resources to ever own cleats or wear matching uniforms. The program has been an enormous success and more than 3,000 MUSC Rec uniforms have been shipped to youth soccer organizations in Colombia, Haiti, South Africa, Turks and Caicos & the Philippines. There is even now a Morris United soccer league in the Ukraine and an annual soccer tournament in the Philippines that have been made possible by the uniforms and equipment that are donated by our youth players.

Souper Soccer Saturday

On Sat Oct 15th, 2016 Morris United Soccer Club held its 9th Annual "Souper Soccer Saturday" food drive to support the Morris County Interfaith Food Pantry. This important initiative is organized and staffed entirely by volunteer kids from the Morris United Rec Soccer Club. The day was an ENORMOUS success with more than 2,000 pounds of food collected for the food pantry!! MUSC Rec families have donated more than 18,000 lbs of food in the 9 years since we began this important tradition, all because of your generosity!

Understanding Offsides in Soccer | Soccer 101

Offsides is one of the most difficult rule in soccer to lean and master. Even at the WorldGame" offside is defined as follows:

It is not an offense in itself to be in an offside position.

A player is in an offside position if:

  • He is nearer to his opponents’ goal line than both the ball and the second last opponent

A player is not in an offside position if:

  • He is in his own half of the field of play or he is level with the second last opponent or he is level with the last two opponents.

A player in an offside position is only penalized if, at the moment the ball touches or is played by one of his team, he is, in the opinion of the referee, involved in active play by:

  • Interfering with play or interfering with an opponent or gaining an advantage by being in that position.

There is no offside offense if a player receives the ball directly from:

  • A goal kick, a throw-in, or a corner kick.

For the complete rules of soccer please refer to the "Laws of the Game" on FIFA's website.
