Good, beautiful Tuesday afternoon to you all (wanted to avoid Monday). Hope all of you are doing well. The Lakeshore Varsity Cross Country team had reached out to me earlier this season to see if we would be so kind as to share our fields with them and so I obliged.
Without it, our local team would not have had a home course and so we were happy to share. With that, they are scheduled to be at the fields today from 3:15PM to 5:30PM. We advised them to use the parking lot off of Rockey Weed. Whether or not that happens will be seen, but I’ll be honest this is an area we (SWM Rec) are working on at getting better at (promise).
Games and practices should go on as scheduled, but I wanted to give you a heads up that there might be more people and traffic at the fields than ordinarily is the case. If you have any questions, please let me know.
Also, remember to complete your volunteer task if you did not opt-out in your registration. If we do not have record of you fulfilling this task, we will apply the opt-out fee to your account at the conclusion of the season. Anyway, enjoy this diamond of a day today, as we all know just how dreary Michigan weather can become later in the fall.
Fall Season Highlight: Three shoutouts today, one for SWM SC President Gil ‘The Godfather of SW Michigan Youth Soccer’. He turned 70 this month and we are all appreciative of his service and dedication to the game. Happy Birthday Gilly! #Total
Second, wanted to point out one of two Coaches for the extraordinary season’s they are having. Coach Pschigoda and his U14 team have jumped out to an undefeated season (4 – 0). For this age group, they travel locally and play other local teams which include Bridgeman, Berrien Springs, Dowagiac, and Coloma. Many of the players on his team have come up through the years in our league and are demonstrating just how dominant we can be. #Dominance
Third, and certainly not the least, Rookie Head Coach Traci Kachorek and her band of renegade players have awoken to become soccer lady giants on the field. She dropped the first game of the season but has seen an offensive tidal wave that has included double digits scoring output from her lady soccer players. She observed her team’s performance, made some very strategic and savvy adjustments, and her team is now playing an outstanding level of soccer. I now refer to her as Head Coach Traci ‘The Belichick of Soccer’ Kachorek. Once a spectator now a dominant force on the field. #Power
