We don't know what time we will play on Sunday due to the nature of the set up. They are hosting a consolation game, a semi final and a final. Until our game is over on Saturday, we won't know which games we're playing Sunday. 

SATURDAY SCHEDULE: 

10:20AM vs. Poway, field 3A
5:20PM vs Wolves, field 3A

 

Please arrive by 9:30AM. Parking is ample at this site. You just may need to walk a bit across the park to our field. 

The girls MUST HAVE BOTH jerseys for ALL GAMES!!
If you want to leave their extra jersey with me between games, please do so. 

Last practice tonight, I hope we have most of the team ready to work and have a good attitude and 100% effort. 

See you on the field!
Coach LJ

TOURNAMENT 12/17/18

I'M PROUD OF THE GIRLS!

I really am proud of the girls and how well they played this weekend! We came together as a team by the end of the second game, and improved with each minute of each game. The third game we dominated and just couldn't seem to get the goals. 

I believe that by the next tournament, we will have the finishing part down and get some wins on the board! Maybe even a tournament win! 

Coach Greg and I will continue to develop the girls in the positions we feel they are most suited. I know they all want to play forward or midfield, but that's not realistic nor is it most beneficial for many of them should they continue on to play soccer.

COMPETITIVE TEAM TRYOUTS

Speaking of continuing on....

As you know, I am coaching competitive in 2018 for 2007 girls second team. The Express team we played on Thursday was the second team for 2006 girls, and coach Calin was impressed by many players. He would love to see our 2006 girls try out for competitive. 

I, too, believe many of our players have skills it takes to make the competitive teams. I cannot make any promises to make a team, and it will depend on how many new players the teams need since they often keep many players on the team season to season.

Please remind your players for our team and for competitive try outs that attitude and effort go a long way. A players' willingness to play where and when asked giving 100% effort is gold mine for any coach. 

PRACTICE

Practices continue same time and place this week. 
Tuesdays/Thursdays 3:30PM-5PM San Dieguito Sports Complex Calle Barcelona

NO PRACTICE 12/24/17-1/1/18

Whether or not you're playing the next tournament, you're welcome to practice with us, but it's not a requirement. 

TOURNAMENT

January 6-7
http://www.newyearskickoff.org/
As far as I know we are missing two players, so we will have 12 on the roster. That means everyone gets more playing time but also needs to be more flexible in positioning. 

TOURNAMENT PICTURES

If anyone has photos from the tournament, I would love them! I wanted to take one with the whole team and just got caught up in the game without thinking. I would love to have a few memories captured to keep!

OUT OF TOUCH

I am out of town until 12/29. Coach Greg is your point of contact for any questions in the meantime. I will update everyone when I get back regarding the tournament. 

MERRY CHRISTMAS!

TOURNAMENT CANCELED!

Unfortunately, the tournament has been canceled for this weekend. We are still on for the Scripps Tournament next weekend. As soon as I have all the information and the schedule is posted, I will send an email. 

NO CLINIC TONIGHT! 

I know you received an email from Express stating that there is clinic still tonight. Because we wanted fresh legs for the girls this weekend, we cancelled our slot. I know what the email stated, but we will not be there. 

SAVE THE DATE!

There is a chance we will get to play a tournament Jan 6-7. Right now I don't know when or where we will practice leading up to that tournament, nor do I have a spot confirmed for us. I will let you know when I know! If you know you CANNOT make those dates, please email me this weekend to let me know. 

COMPETITIVE TRYOUTS

Competitive tryouts are set for January! Tryouts for our 2006 and 2007 girls is January 8 & 10th at Leo Mullen. If you are interested in your daughter trying out, please fill out the registration form. 

If you want more information about the tryouts, please click here.

I just signed my contract with Express to coach 2007 girls 2nd competitive team (of 3 teams), so I will be there! I am brand new to competitive coaching, so I won't have many answers if you have questions, but I am happy to help or ask the people who know. :)

IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR TOURNAMENT THIS WEEKEND!

PARENTS: We need you to sign a medical release form before our first game Saturday. Please stop by before or after practice to do so.

RULES: http://www.nottsforestsoccer.com/page/show/3742925-mesa-rec-all-stars

Games are (2) 25 minute halves with a 5 minute half time. 

I'm asking everyone to be at our first game field at 10AM so we have plenty of time for check in, team huddle, and warm up. Please be on time!

Please take a moment to watch the goal side video with your player. It will be helpful for Tuesday practice. 

FINALLY! CLINIC CHANGE!

Thanks to the girls who came out to the clinic on Friday night. I messed up with the weeks, that clinic was supposed to be this week. Although the club is running a clinic this Friday night, we are NOT going to participate. We would like the girls to be rested with strong bodies on Saturday. Clinic would probably work against us!
