Fall tournament info

from John...
Dear Soccer parents ---- time for another season ( only the fall season)....looking forward to a fun and rewarding year. Just to give you a quick heads up on the tournaments scheduled and what you need to be doing. Please be on the lookout for emails from me concerning times and dates for upcoming events. I will also begin collecting monies that are due ( to me) as soon as I get all the figures. This year I will be collecting for all three tournaments ...... we will be splitting the coaches fee and lodging and travel with the U-18's. Therefore we will save some money there . We are also saving on accommodations by booking early.
The first tournament is in Greenville SC. CESA Soccer Classic
Date is September 22,23
we are required to use their housing bureau, and I have not heard from them on the place yet. Should find out by August 27/28. The deadline to assign rooms will be September 2nd. Please respond quickly when we get the hotel info. I am trying to get them to let parents call and secure the room on your own credit card ( they want me to email everyone on our team as a "roster-type" sheet. If this is the case -- i will be asking for names and card numbers ---
Please be understanding ( i have no control over their policy)
Second tournament is Mt Pleasant. Charleston Select Shootout 2008
Dates are October 18, 19

New Fall Practice Schedule

Starting next week (Aug 18)

Parents and Players, I have to make a change in the practice schedule for the fall. This will free me up for an early training time with the Academy players on Thursdays.

Tues 5:30-7:00 U15's
7:00-8:30 U18's

Wed 5:30-7:00 U15's
7:00-8:30 U18's

Thurs 7:00-8:30 (Both Teams)

With the new schedule I can have 2 separate practices with both teams and also allow each player 3 training sessions a week. Please note that practice times may run over an extra 15 mins each session. So that you know on Mondays and Thursdays I will be coaching the Academy in the early time slot and on Mondays I will be assisting older girls and boys teams in the later slot.
