Thanks to all of those who were able to attend last night’s Office Hours. We were able to walk through questions ranging from Age Groups, GotSport, Coaching Contacts, Teams, Schedules, and more. Our next Office Hour is exclusively for Coaches and it will be this Thursday from 8pm to 9pm. Coaches, please join us if you can.
Remember that tonight is the first of two SWM Rec Coach U Clinics, 6pm to 7pm, at the Lakeshore Youth Soccer Complex Concession Stand.
These will be hosted by SWM Rec Soccer Coaching Alum:
- Director of Coaching Development DeCamp (Introduction to Rec Soccer) – 10min
- Coach Van Dusen (Games) – 15min
- Coach Punches (Practices) – 15min
- Coach Crowder (Field Strategy and Fundamentals) – 15min
- Coach Brubaker (Communication and Leadership) – 15min
This is geared for all Coaches in SWM Rec. It is required that each Coach attend at least one of the two SWM Rec Coach U events. The second SWM Rec Soccer Coach U event is scheduled for September 2nd, 6pm to 7pm at the Lakeshore Youth Soccer Complex. Please choose one to attend and bring with you paper, pen, and a copy of the MSYSA Rules, Regulations, and Policies (available by clicking HERE).
This will allow for us to introduce ourselves and get reacquainted with those who coached in the spring. This will also provide an introduction to our league from a Coaching standpoint and for those new to our league, an opportunity to ask questions.
Anything from how many practices to have for your respective age groups, suggested drills, game-days, strategy, team communication, etc. COACHES are the MOST important position in our league therefore we are offering this to you free of charge, in addition to the online materials already communicated to you.
Remember, that we do still need each team to have a family volunteer to step up and fill-in as an Assistant Coach. If teams have not already lined one up, please do so soon. The Head Coaches job is a task, and each will need a hand with practice, communication, schedules, players, parents, etc. Please register as a Coach by clicking HERE.
Fall Season Highlight: Coach Jason Sweet stepped up to the call this fall to Coach and has registered, completed all necessary training requirements, reached out to his team, and scheduled practices. Well on his way to a dominant fall season. Way to get it done Coach!
