More schedules ready! 

What you need to know:

The schedule for the rest of the season are now available. Thanks for your patience. 

Players

Why is nobody passing to you? It's normal for players to just keep dribbling and forget to pass in week 3. Why? It must be a developmental phase, because it happens every season. Just position yourself to take advantage of a deflection or rebound.

Anyone who needs a COVID test, come to the clubhouse between 4 and 8 pm every Thursday during the Fall season. Players, volunteers, parents, and siblings can all get tested for free.

Parents

Week 3 is also when some spectators start to get really excited! This is your reminder that we're doing this so all the kids can have fun. Your child knows very well that she wants to shoot the ball into the net -- and she probably had a good reason not to.

The schedule app is working. Click on Teams to find yours, then click "Add to favorites", and it should give you a family agenda, including your team's games and referee assignments.

Coaches

Weeks 1 and 2 are introductions. Week 3 is when the training really begins, now that we all understand what they've gotten into. The players come with a wide range of abilities. The teams that finish the season strongest are the ones that patiently support player development. 

Plan to join the coach meeting on Tuesday October 5 from 7:30-9:00. The following week, it'll be on Wednesday October 12, and we'll cycle through the days to get everyone.

Referees

Thanks for returning your game cards! You can also use the QR code on the bottom, or drop it through the mail slot at the clubhouse. If you circle anything other than 3 for sporting behavior, please write an explanation.

Team managers

Pictures are coming in October. 

For divisions 6U, 7U, 8U, the team spreadsheet has a new column, "How do you want your name to appear on the trophy?" Please work with your coaches to get that filled in.

Everyone Plays

In Region 13, every player is on the field for at least 3/4 of the game, and keepers (10U and 12U) are in goal for at most 2 quarters. In 6U-8U, everyone plays the whole game. Referees do not enforce this at the game, but note exceptions on the game card for followup by the coaching staff. Now, this year, some of the teams have extra-full rosters. Coaches will do their best to give everyone as much play time as possible.

Just for fun

Of course there's a facebook page.

There will be Best Team Name awards. The bar is pretty high. The winners will have their banners hung in the clubhouse.

Put your name and color into the coach's spreadsheet to see them appear on the schedule.
