Hi my name is Chris Chrissotimos, and I will be coaching your sons this Fall's Post Cadet Boys Soccer program as part of the inter town league. We are Team 1.
For many of your sons this is another season of experience for them but it will provide exposure to more advanced competition. There is always something new to learn and develop and the intent is provide a good and fun, challenging experience through skills, practice, and weekend games to continue development.
We are the only 5/6 grade team and have a large roster this season so we will be rotating players a fair amount to ensure everyone has game time. I am asking for everyone to have patience in advance while we look into potential solutions.
I am working with our Soccer Sports Director to see if there is an option to field a second team to try to optimize playing time. We are looking for another coach and a couple of assistants to help with our efforts, so if anyone is interested please let me know. Regardless if there is more than one team, I would like to still prefer to hold group practices to facilitate training, development and for flexibility for coaching coverage and shared knowledge benefits.
Schedule wise we have games on Saturdays and possibly Sundays with varying start times. We will be mostly on Field H for Home games. Below is a link to the field map and link for easy reference.
Since we are playing in the inter-town we will be traveling between 15 - 25 minutes for away games. Below is a link to match schedules filtered for our team only:
Please ensure that your son has both their red/blue pal shirts, socks, cleats, and shinguards to ensure that they are protected from potential contact. Ideally everyone should have a Size 4 ball (5 will work if that is the only option) at this level and helps during drills while working on their skills with minimal waiting time. If you do not currently have a ball or shirts, I believe they are available through PAL for small fees.
As mentioned above, We are looking to set up a weekly practice(s) starting next week and have put our request in with PAL and will provide more information as soon as we know more.
This weekend our game is Saturday September 11th at 1:45 pm on Field H and we will be wearing Blue since we are Home (but would encourage that everyone bring both shirts for flexibility.) Please arrive 20 minutes in advance for warmups (1:25pm). We look forward to seeing everyone on Saturday and for a great season!
