Rules

Top 3 Goals

What are our team TOP two goals this season?

  1. Have Fun
  2. Try your Best
  3. Sportsmanship

My father always stressed there are 3 VERY valuable lessons in life:  Show Up, On Time and Be Ready to Play.  Thus, there is more to just “suit up and show up”.  You have to be loose, and mentally prepared.  I am a firm believer, any sport is much more exciting when you achieve success.  soccer-awardWhether it’s individual improvement or better yet, TEAM victories.  Thus, keeping the kids attention is difficult so I try to constantly keep mixing things up.  As I continue to get to know our player & team strengths and weaknesses, I encourage everyone to let me know specific areas you would like me to focus on with your son?  For example, I had a player pull me aside during the last game and say, “coach, can you show me again how to properly pass and shoot?”.  Obviously, we have a wide range of talent, and I have a general idea who needs to work on certain skills.  But it doesn’t hurt to speak to me after practice and games if you have any questions.  I have a lot more time to give you my undivided attention.
