Next Week - ZOOM Session
by posted 04/03/2020

Hey All,


Since we’re supposed to start practice next week, I thought we could have a film study session via Zoom, on Wednesday, April 8th at 7:15 pm. I want the girls to watch a game before Wednesday night. This game is the 2019 ECNL U14 National Final between LAFC (LA) and PDA (New Jersey). While they look much bigger than our girls, technically they’re only an age group above!


Here is the link for the Zoom meeting.

Here is a notes page they can print out and use. I’ll be asking them for their thoughts during our Zoom meeting ;)


If you don’t know how Zoom works or need some technical support, let me know ahead of time.


Thanks and I hope to see everyone Wednesday night!!

Spring Update (kind of)
by posted 03/29/2020

Hey All - 

Per an email awhile back, I explained US Youth Soccer and IYSA will not allow us to have organized events until April 15. As the chaos continues on I'm guessing that our start date will be pushed back but can't give a definitive answer on when we will start up again. We have our games scheduled as-is for now but I have a feeling we will be rescheduled April games so be on the lookout. We also got placed, but not seeded, into President's Cup (not States Cup) which means thanks to Gotsoccer rankings, we will have to take part in a play-in game on April 25 in Rockford, if they don't change the format of the tournament (it's hard to explain in writing but when we get together in person I'll explain further).

It's imperative that the girls continue to keep working individually. While the weather can often be a deterrent, there now seems to be a lot of free time...I strongly encourage the girls to WATCH as many games as possible. It's a different aspect of learning and growing as a player. It can be easy to just watch high-level games but I'd encourage all sorts of viewings. If the girls have aspirations to play in college maybe have them search YouTube for the different levels (Div 1, 2, 3, etc) and compare differences. I did a search and found three different level games within 5 min.


See below for examples but have them search as well!

Northwestern Women's Soccer (Division 1)

Grand Valley State University Women's Soccer (Division 2) - My buddy Jeff is the head coach here!

Elmhurst College Women's Soccer (Division 3)


I hope all is well with you and your family.

Thanks and keep the videos coming!
