Reminder - Partents need to remain at the field during practices and games

This is a reminder that our home school soccer program is not a drop of program.  Parents are expected to remain at the field during practices and games.

During last Tuesdays practice one of our players had a fairly serious injury.  Thankfully her parent was on site and could direct the care for their player. 

Hopefully there will not be any more serious injuries this season, but this is a reminder of one of the reasons it is important that parents to remain on site. 

(Parent on site exception:  players that drive to games/practices)

First Soccer Practice - Saturday September 5th

Just a reminder that our first practice will be Saturday September 5th from 9:30 to 11:30 at Clark Park in Molalla.

It is important that the players attend the first 2 practices as the coaches will dividing up the teams within age brackets to ensure we have balanced skill levels between teams.  

Also, coaches will be evaluating skills levels of individual kids and having discussions with parents with recommendations to move kids up or down to different age brackets.   Our goal is to fit each player with the players that have similar skills, not necessarily similar ages.  We want to avoid having kids that dominate their age bracket or are unable to keep up within their age bracket.  The age brackets are only set up for the initial bracket assignments.   We ask coaches to make recommendations for moving players up or down the brackets to address these situations.

As always, feel free to call me with questions,

Coaching and Registration

4 of our 7 head coaches from last year will NOT be returning this year.  This means we need parents to step up and volunteer for coaching positions.  Please consider if you can coach a team.  We would like to avoid turning families away but we need coaches to make sure that does not happen. 
It does not require experience to teach soccer, particularly at the younger ages.   Please feel free to give me a call Pete Aldrich if have questions regarding coaching.  (Pete - 503-804-6248)  

As a reminder the final date for Registrations is a week from tomorrow.  Please get you registrations in as soon as possible so we can complete the team assignments! 
Additionally, we will accept participants on a first come first serve basis, based on the date registrations are received, if we have to limit players due to lack of coaches.
