We are welcoming younger students to our soccer program this year! A 3-5 th grade soccer team will be coached by Jamie Yerkes (3rd grader Lila and 8th grader Gus) and the 6-8 th grade team by our PE teacher Sean Fortier. We encourage all 3-8 th graders to choose to participate in the games and enjoy the team atmosphere of competition.
Practices will take place during PE classes during the school day, and so are required for all students. There will also be optional after school practices on any Tuesdays and Thursdays that don't have scheduled games for 3-5th graders from 3:00-4:00, and for 6-8th graders from 3:45-5:00. We would appreciate some extra adults to help supervise students during these practices (no experience with soccer necessary), so if you can volunteer, please let one of the coaches know.
Games will begin after the Fall Field Trip and will be scheduled for Tuesday and Thursday afternoons for both teams. The schedule is still evolving, and will be very specific to each game for which grade levels will play. Some games are in the calendar below and we hope to have a complete schedule listed here next week.
Equipment required for games includes cleats, shin guards, and mouth guards. Before you go shopping, plan to check out the huge supply we've got for the taking, and if you have gear that no longer fits, consider sharing it with another family. The supplies will be on the back/cubby room porch of school for anyone to look through.
Volunteer Help: We appreciate parents who donate their time to help supervise practices, ref our home games, and to provide snacks for the team at half-time during all games. Sign up sheets for these three requests were out at the Open House and can be found in the purple folder on Krystal's desk.
