Hello Coaches. The soccer season is upon us so time for some information exchange. Hope everyone had a good winter. I know there was not much sledding going on.
1. COACHES MEETING: Tuesday March 20th at Harpers Ferry Middle School auditorium from 7p to 8:30p. You will get an updated roster, player forms for new players, uniforms for new players, important season-specific information, and really cool door prizes.
2. ROSTER CHECK: It is worth taking some time to contact your players to make sure they are coming back. As an example, I had one player who was not coming back and just emailed me to say he decided to skip his ‘regular’ spring sport and play soccer again. Luckily, we have a spot for him still. Remember, under the “Jersey Number” column on your roster, 1 = playing fall & spring; 2 = playing fall only; 3 = playing spring only. On the rosters you will get at the meeting 23 = originally signed up for fall, but extended to the spring.
3. FIELD DAY: Field day will be Saturday March 24th at Charles Town fields starting at 9a. Get at least one representative from your team to go. While you do the ‘Roster Check’ (in 2. above), beg someone to go to the field day.
4. COACH TRAINING: There will be a training for Intermediate Coaches (you need to have already completed U12 coach training to participate) on Friday March 9 and Saturday March 10. Please contact me directly if you want to participate. We have 4 from JCYSL already committed to coming.
