Change Team: 
Virtual Soccer Practice
by posted 03/23/2021

Hello everyone,
 
What a crazy few days, huh! 
 
As we get back into the swing of things and start to think about the outdoor season I want to thank everyone for your thoughts and concerns over the past week. Although this past week has taken it's toll mentally, I want to reassure y'all that I have received two negative Covid test results and I'm feeling physically fine and looking forward to getting back to the field on Saturday. I'm gratful to be in good health and with the warmer weather and more vacccines ahead I'm optimistic this spring will be a fun one.
Over the next couple days I will be working with Johnny to arrange times for players to receive their player evaluations. These times will likely occur around practice and game times over the next few weeks. There will also be an option to have player evals over Zoom. 
 
The plan for virtual training this week will involve taking part in Zoom meetings from 6-7pm on Wednesday and Thursday. I will follow up with Zoom links for both Wednesday and Thursday this week.
 
Wednesdays session will include the team performing footskills, turns and aerial control. I plan to lead this session from the Vale facility. Players will require a ball and 5x5 yard open space (players will have the option to be outdoors as long as they still have access to the zoom platform). 
 
Thursdays session (check the information and links below, the team will need access to this info) will be more classroom based but will still involve a physical workout. This session will require a ball and indoor space as well as access to soccer journals.
 

HIIT Workout - Beginner Strength - 40s/40s Intervals

40 seconds of high intensity interval training and 40 seconds rest. 20 minute warm-up.

Soccer Assignment 5
by posted 02/08/2021

Hello,

We are half way through our soccer assignment series and I've been happy with what I have seen so far. The boys seem to be engaged and putting in alot of effort when thinking and talking about soccer when they're away from the field. Thank you for your support with this.

Soccer Assignment 3
by posted 01/18/2021

Hello everyone,

Most of the boys received physical copies of the written assignments at training last week, I will have more copies at training this week. They can complete assignments digitally or via pen/paper and they have been asked to complete and send/bring in to me after completing. Please be willing to help them submit work. I've already started to receive some fantastic entries so keep it coming. 

January will mark the start of our soccer assignment series. Each week I plan to send the boys an assignment that involves cognitive and physical challenges. The soccer assignment series will keep the boys engaged and will encourage them to interact with each other when they're not on the field.

Please share the following links with your son and ask him to complete by next Monday -

Feel free to reach out to me with any questions.

Thank you.
