Believe it or not, it is that time again. (or at least it will be very soon)
For those of you who do not know, the u-10 and u-12 play a very short season in the spring. The season lasts from the first week of April to the first or second week of May. there are only 8 games. Cities try not to interfere with baseball. That is not to say there wont be over-lapping with practices.
I know for Kirtland baseball, which I am a board member also, the regular season does not start until the third week of May.
ALL GAMES, U-10 BOYS AND GIRLS, U-12 BOYS AND GIRLS GAMES WILL BE PLAYED ON THE SOCCER FIELD IN REC PARK BEHIND THE SCHOOLS. U-10 GIRLS, YOUR GAMES WILL BE PLAYED BEHIND THE SCHOOLS.
So what do we do now. You need to send an e-mail to your players to see who is playing. I would like to maintain the same number of teams from the fall. If there are not enough players we can call up players from the u-8s if needed and or shuffle teams as needed. (I don’t want to order uniforms)
Players have already paid for this session. There is not an additional charge.
PLease try to respond back to me by March 1st. and believe it or not, you can start practicing anytime you want. (oh, I crack myself up) No really, anytime between now and your first game, you can practice. Because 4 teams will be sharing one field and 4 other teams will be sharing the other field, we may have to make a schedule. But more importantly, I want to see how many kids and teams we have.
Thank you very much.
Sorry everyone, but the weather for this evening is not looking promising, so soccer will be cancelled. See you Wednesday!!!
U-8 includes Kindergarten, First and Second grade.
1. THERE WILL BE NO SOCCER OCTOBER 4TH. This is Kirtland’s annual shreding day at the Community Center. Normally we would practice behind the high school but this year, there will be youth football games, 2 soccer games all at the same time we would have had practice. SO…
2. We will have 2, yes two, make up days for that Saturday. Mondays September 29th and October 6th, will be make up days for the missed October 4th day. It will be from 6-7 behind the Community Center on Route 6. You will still have your regular scheduled practice/games on either Tuesday or Wednesday. This will just be extra. I am really sorry for any inconvenience that this may cause if you are unable to make the Monday practices. Normally this hasn’t been a problem in the past.
3. We will have our “End of the year Celebration” Saturday October 11th. Soccer for both groups will be from 10:30-11:30 with pizza, snacks and awards to follow (rain or shine). Both groups will be together. I am asking Tuesday’s group to bring snacks. (veggies, fruit, chips) and Wednesday’s group to bring desserts. Kirtland Soccer will provide pizza, drinks, plates, napkins, etc….. Let’s hope it doesn’t rain. This will be our last practice/game.
4. Finally, we had a meeting Sunday evening to discuss the future of Kirtland soccer for next year and years to come. There will be another meeting October 5th at the Kirtland City Tavern at 5pm for anyone who is interested in helping.
As usual, if you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
We are going to be signing up with Lost Nation Sports Complex for the girls U10 winter indoor soccer league. The cost will be $80 per player for 8 games, played on either Saturday or Sunday.We are going to attempt to get mainly Saturday games if possible. Even if your child cannot commit to every game, but would like to play, we’re more than happy to have them. We are shooting for a roster of at least 12.
Jersey shirts will be provided. Please supply shin guards, socks, shorts and shoes. The socks and shorts from outdoor soccer will work fine. Indoor soccer is played on astro turf so indoor soccer shoes, or regular athletic shoes are good.
As for practices, these are on a first come, first serve basis through Lost Nation Sports Complex. Ideally, we would like to have 1 practice per week, day to be determined by availability. As soon as we have that scheduled, you will be notified.
We’ve attached the player registration form. Please print and complete then return with payment to Mike at either an upcoming practice or game, or mail it (address on form). Please return by October 20, 2014.
