Welcome to the new season. As you may know, this year we jump up an age category and will be playing U14. The game will be bigger; we will be playing 11 v 11 on a larger field with bigger goals (sorry Nick!). The game will also be faster with larger opponents. The play will require more individual ball receiving and handling skills (not just kicking the ball up the field) as well as a better soccer sense of team strategy. It is not too early to practice juggling and getting your foot on the ball now and then.
We will have our first team meeting in early December and start indoor practices in early January.
The indoor practices have not yet been scheduled, but will be one weekend afternoon per week. We will probably have an hour gym time to practice skills, but plan on time before and / or afterward for conditioning and speed work.
Outdoor practice will start in April and will consist of twice a week 90 minute practices and at least one game every weekend. Approximately half of the games will be home and half away throughout RI. I expect a call or email from you the day before if you cannot make practice or a game.
I'll be in touch soon about the first meeting.
Cheers ------------- Coach Pete
