This year we have 13 kids in our team and I myself and Greg Mitchell are the coaches for this team.

I am a soccer fan, a player, and a USSF soccer ref for many years. This is my first year to be a soccer coach. Greg has been a basketball coach for 5 years and he has lots of experiences to coach young athlete. 

Here are the to-do list before your kids show up the first day.

  •  Buy a pair of Shin Guard. Safety is No. 1. To protect your kids, go to WalMart or soccer shops to buy it before showing up on field.
  •  Get a soccer ball for the kids. 4-5 years old kids can kick a ball very well, a Size 3 ball is used for their age.
  •  Get a pair of soccer shoe. No metal parts, find a right sized shoe, the bigger, the worse.
  •  First game day: this Saturday — April 4, at 10:oo AM. Location:   6116 Morris Road, Hamilton, Ohio 45011, Fire Department, besides North  Elementary School. Please arrive 5-10 minutes before the first training and first game. 

Here are coaches’ to-do list:

  •  We will distribute this season’s game schedule, picture of the day notice and Parent Code of Ethics documents on the first game day.
  •  We need to decide if we’d like to print the kids’ favorite number on their team T-shirts.
  •  We will bring as much training equipments as we can find to the field to help kids start their first game.
  •  We will answer any question you have and talk about anything you want to discuss.
  •  We will post more interesting Soccer rules, activities and on-line schedules later on.   

If you have any question, feel free to reach me at 256-2149 or email me mren2006@gmail.com, you can reach Greg at 218-3942, or email him gmitchell008@cinci.rr.com

The last important thing: in case of inclement weather, please follow the instruction to get the game cancellation information in the morning of every game day:
