We have requested the following BYE dates:
Feb 9 - week #2; assuming no one wants to play on week #1, this should give us two extra weeks to prepare.

Training info for the next few weeks

As mentioned last week, Joel is setting up training for this Saturday (9/29)  from 11:30 to 1:30.  I'm not certain if that will include a U15 scrimmage or not, but I know Joel was trying to line that up.
For the next few weeks, Thursday's practice will end 15 minutes early (at 7:15 pm) so Joel can do some make-up sessions with the U17s.

Aiken Soccer tournament - Hotel info

John has discovered that Aiken is basically booked up. He found a block of 15 rooms at the Holiday Inn Express in Aiken.
The deadline (Fri 7/27) for holding these has expired, but it is possible other people/teams have rooms held that they will not lock in. So by checking with this hotel, you may be able to still get a room if you missed the 7/27 deadline.

Click here for Hotel details (The reviews I read at Travelocity looked very favorable.)

The tournament is Aug 25/26.

Aug 25-26 (for the Aiken Cup)
Oct 13-14 (for the local YMCA tournament)

We are hoping that no other teams will want to play on Aug 18. Sept 1 is not a league weekend due to Labor Day.
The scheduling meeting is August 5, and the schedule will be finalized by August 12. (At that point, we'll know our open dates, and would also be able to make tournament substitutions, if desired, using other open dates.)

Meeting minutes from tonight's parent meeting

1. Goalie situation: They have several things they are working on. Ross listed the following:
    a) They've contacted Kendel H. He is a U13 that plays catcher and goalie for the Christian Academy. He will come to practice next week for a tryout.
    b) Posted goalie request on SC Soccer website. Joel reports that 150 folks have viewed the request so far.
    c) Kevin Mc. (with US Club) soccer is actively looking for US Club players moving to or living near the area.
    d) Talking to area JV coaches
    e) Possible partnership with Aiken Soccer Club
2. Kevin Mc. (above) has put us in touch with a kid moving here in August from California -- not a goalie.  He plays at the gold level and will try out. 
3. We will train on Tuesday and Thursday from 5:30 to 7:00 until July 5th.  Then we'll be off until August.
4. Ross will get back to MB on August 10, and fall training will start on August 14.
5. During the season, we'll train on Tuesday and Thursday.  5:30 - 7:30.  On Tuesday's, Ross will do technical training. On Thursday's, Joel will do tactical training.  They will be coaching from a syllabus.
6. Fall tournaments: looking at doing 3 or 4
a) Aiken Cup   or    Adidas Shootout (Greensboro)  - both near late Aug/early Sep
b) YMCA Carolina Shootout    or    Charleston Shootout (Mt. Pleasant) - October
c) CASL Shootout (Raleigh) and/or Lake Norman Classic - November
7. On-line registration: Please do this ASAP so they can get a firm count of who's playing.
Kit Fee  $125
Payment Schedule:
$350 + Kit due Jun 5th
$225 due July 1st
$225 due Aug 1st
8. Medical release forms: please get these in by next week.
Give to me, Ross, or mail to:   Coast FA  /  628 Chestnut Road   / Myrtle Beach, SC 29572
Must be notarized; needs a raised seal or a stamp for travel across state lines.
9. Uniform: We will be getting new uniforms (except for the guys that played U14 last year).  These will be the same style that all the other CoastFA teams wear. CoastFA will provide these.  I think they're the Adidas Squadra II  (or similar.)

League games start Saturday

I'm sure everyone is aware of the games this weekend, but since it has been a while since we've actually had a league game, I thought I'd send a reminder.
The schedule isn't ideal:  10:30 and 3:00  (be there around 9:30 for warm-up), but the field locations are good.  These are the NECSA fields just off of I-20 & Clemson Rd near Spring Valley Church.
Field Location  for the GPS folks:
170 Sparkleberry Lane
Columbia, SC 29229

Can-Am Cup information

The YMCA Can-Am Cup website can be found at:
The schedules still say tentative, but ours hasn't changed in over a week. Hopefully it is the final schedule. Our fields are on the Airbase and are listed as AFB and #10.  The Y tells me that both fields are at the corner of Myers and Farrow.  #10 is supposed to be the full-size field.  So it looks like the games will NOT be at Swallow.

Normal training schedule resumes

Beginning this Tuesday [Jan 16], we'll go back to the normal two-hour practices.

Tue / Thur : 5:30 - 7:30
Socastee Park

Sunday, January 07, 2007

Training and spring info

Training will begin again this week. Ross is out-of-town on another trip, so we'll have Joel Banta as coach.
Socastee Park
Tue: 5:30 - 7:00 3v3
Thur 5:30 - 7:00 regular training

Also, some brief spring season info. We're looking at two tournaments (not sure which two, plus State Cup).
Pre-season (before Feb 17)
- Considering tournaments on Feb 3 and Feb 10

During season (Feb 17 - May 5)
- Considering tournaments on Mar 10, Mar 17, and Apr 21
- State Cup May 5

I think Apr 21 looks like a definite; the timing is good as a warm-up to State Cup. So, we'll be choosing one additional tournament among the other dates mentioned above (2/3, 2/10, 3/10, 3/17)
