Extra shoes, shin guards or socks?

If you have any shoes, shin guards or socks that will not be needed for next year they can be donated for next year's players. They will be washed, sorted and stored for next year. Nancy Abbott will have bins at  the last game, to put them in.

Coaches for 2013 Season

The following are the coaches for the 2013 season:

Age Bracket - 6 to 8
Team A
Head Coach: Tyler Tahtinen 
Asst Coach 1: Don/Kari Ririe

Team B
Head Coach: Brooke Young
Asst Coach 1:  Kevin Barns

Age Bracket - 9 to 11
Team A
Head Coach: Mike Murry
Asst Coach 1: Stevie Murry

Team B
Head Coach: Jeff Reister
                     Asst Coach 1:  Denise Oistad
 Age Bracket 12 to 18 - coed
          Team A
           Head Coach:  Adam McDaniels
           Asst Coach 1:  Joseph Cannon
           Asst Coach 2:  Lucas Tegtmeier

           Team B
           Head Coach:  Rock Shetler
           Asst Coach 1:  Greg Abbott

Just as a reminder, players will not immediately be assigned to a team.  The coaches will determine which players will play on which team during the first 2 or 3 practices.  We do this so the coaches have time to evaluate the players' skills to determine how best to divide the players to ensure the teams are evenly matched.   Additionally the age brackets are just guidelines.  Coaches have the final say on moving players up or down the age brackets due to skill level, aggressiveness and maturity.   This is done to ensure that players are in the best environment to learn and to avoid injury.

Soccer Rules! For referees and any interested:
Here are a couple links to basic soccer rules. Please read over them and call or email me if you have any questions. I know there will be a learning curve for some of us. That's ok. Again, don't hesitate to call me (Jamison) at 503-932-1985 if you have questions.

This first link, soccer for parents, has more explanation and is a little more fun to read.

This second link is simpler, shorter and more to the point.

Thank you for volunteering to help this year with homeschool soccer! This is going to be fun! Even if you're a little (or a lot) nervous about being a ref, I'm sure you will have fun too. After a little experience, the comfort level tends to go up quickly. I know mine sure did!
Here are some basics to remember:
Attitude is the main thing.
Use your position to encourage and enforce good sportsmanship.
You are in a good position to instruct and affirm kids, especially but not only, with the younger teams. You are not only there to make official calls.
Use your whistle (and your voice) boldly! The whistle makes an announcement to the whole field, so please blow it loudly and clearly. This helps players, coaches and parents to understand what is going on. This will help you earn the respect of the players too, since an unsure whistle gives the impression of an unsure ref.
Also, you are in charge of timing the game, unless you delegate that to another, so bring a stopwatch or other appropriate timepiece.
And, we will enforce the offsides rule with the 12+ games only. We will instruct kids 9-11 about offsides, but we will not disallow goals because of it.

Finally, our first game day is this coming Saturday. You'll be hearing from me shortly with your game assignments. Again, thank you.
