-------- Original Message --------
From: joelbanta@aol.com

Parents and Players,
These are the current tournaments that the U17 players will be attending. Gregg will be attaching some information that you may want to follow through with. This is the season where coaches really view players at these events(junior/senior year's) and that is why we are taking this team to better events than last year. In the event that college coaches watch us play, it would be an excellent opportunity to give them information on your son. Please take the time to do this it is important to have(resume).Formal training will start on August 16th at 7pm. For that week and the next we will train four nights in a row (Mon-Thurs). We will also be scrimmaging the U18's every week. During those first two weeks, we will scrimmage them on a Saturday mornings (TBA). When school starts we will be going back to Mon, Wed and Thursday nights (7-8:30). Also remember I am running a fitness and technique camp for the next two weeks(mon-thurs 6pm-7:30) cost is 5 dollars each night. See you soon.

Player Resume Info

It has been suggested to have these available at tournaments for college coaches  for any player wishing to provide one.  We can have one parent volunteer to coordinate this (collect resumes, make copies, distribute), or we can simply to the "do it yourself" approach. 
Do-it-yourself method:  complete a resume for your son.   Provide me with multiple copies prior to each tournament. I'll group them together and have them available for tournament officials/college coaches, etc.  (We don't really have club funds to pay for the copies, printouts, etc. so this method spreads the work and expense among the parents/players who are interested.)  No obligation, no deadline. Opt-in or opt-out throughout the season as desired.
Contact me if you need a copy of the resume template.
