Summer Soccer for MS Boys

posted May 10, 2018, 5:21 AM by Jonathan Reed

Dear Players, Parents, and Guardians:


This summer we will be continuing the 8v8 mini soccer league for middle school boys.  During the past four summers, the program has been a success with over 30 kids participating. We anticipate another big turnout and that there will be enough players for three teams again this year.   This summer the program will be run by Kevin Parsons. Some of you may recall Kevin from his standout soccer career in Sunapee or know him around town. Kevin has played at the collegiate level and has recently graduated from UNH with a degree in Physical Education.  In the fall he will be teaching Health and PE in Concord.


We plan to follow a format of three teams, playing 15 minute games rotating the teams each time.  A vs B for 15 minutes. Then A vs C for 15 minutes, then C vs B for 15 minutes, then repeat. This would continue through the summer with each team taking turns sitting the first game.  On the last night, we would have a two-hour jamboree and cookout. Games will be coached by high school varsity soccer players with an adult referee for the game. The goal in creating the team rosters will be to create three evenly-matched squads.


Dates & Time:

  • Sundays and Wednesdays (No Wednesday July 4)   July 1 - July 29        4:30-6:00pm


Location:

  • Alexander Field (lower field) at SMHS, 10 North Road


Cost:

  • $30 - which includes performance jersey, field maintenance, insurance and a wicked good time!   

(Note: Limited scholarships available, see Mr. Reed)


Commitment:

  • The expectation is that players are prepared to play at their games.  If athletes are not able to make it, they will notify the coaches at least 24-hours in advance. Coaches, referees, and organizers are donating their time; please be respectful of this, and communicate in a timely manner.


Contact Information:


If you are interested in playing, confirm by submitting your payment by Friday, June 8.  Make checks payable to “Jon Reed-Sunapee Soccer.”  Registration can be sent in with your child and passed in to Mr. Reed or Mrs. Flint.  At the elementary school, registrations can be given to Addison Reed (3rd grade) and she will pass them along.

Lake Sunapee Golden Trout Soccer Club

                          

“Winning is not something that is built in a day; it is constructed year-round. As always, it comes down to progressive, consistent effort, with a view toward a long range goal.”

                -  Anson Dorrance, World Cup Champion Coach, 21 NCAA National Championships


Our Lake Sunapee/ Kearsarge Area Soccer programs have maintained a strong history of excellence and achievement. Countless parents, coaches, and young women like you have supported and built this reputation.  Our local school and club athletic programs, combined with off-season training, have “left no doubt” as to our commitment. Understanding that we all need our down time, I have created a summer program that provides an opportunity to improve your skills while providing the flexibility to enjoy the summer vacation, as follows:

·         10 sessions,  8v8 format, 80x50yd fully-painted field with full-sized goals,  80-minute games (10 min half), and Referees

·         2 teams, each will have their own player/coach drawn from our 2016 Undefeated and 2017 NH State Championship Sunapee Varsity Girls roster and US Soccer ‘E’ licensed Coaching Staff.

·         The season will run from June 27-July 31, every Wednesday and Sunday, 4:30-6 pm, (no 7/4)

                                     *This will not conflict with the summer basketball program

For a scant $40 pesos you will receive:  1) A stunning collector’s edition, Lake Sunapee Golden Trout Soccer Club, fully reversible, quick dry jersey with your personal  # choice. 2) 100% on field playing time 3) NO TRAVEL- all games to be played at SMHS. 4) Honest feed-back from coaching staff. 5) NO DAY CARE: Come to play hard, to learn, and to bond with like-minded young women such as yourself, who love our game.

This will not be ‘drop- in’ soccer. Commitment to the team requires commitment to our schedule. Planned vacations aside, your attendance is expected. No last-minute phone calls because you “wanted to binge watch Pitch Perfect 1,2+3, or go to the mall with friends.”  Our schedule may also include home games vs local clubs/players from this area (Lightning SC, Kearsarge United SC, Fisherfield FC) if available.

Please contact Norm Dalton before May 15 to receive a registration packet, or for any questions and comments: normantdalton@gmail.com
