I wanted to drop a quick note to introduce myself, and also let you all know what is going on with the schedule. I'll be the head coach for our team and Seth Barnes has volunteered to be the assistant coach. I coached a U-9 competitive team this summer and have coached recreational teams in the past as well for CCU. Prior to that I've coached age groups from U-12 to U-17 for Tonka and St Louis Park.
It appears we still need a manager, so if anyone is able to volunteer please let me and Melanie Mertes know. Group training with Jonathan Tudor will begin tomorrow night from 5:45 - 7 pm at Sunset Park in Chaska, I have added that to our official schedule. That will continue every Monday through the season with the exception of Labor Day, and I'll get the rest of them entered as well.
We need to choose a weeknight to have our team practice. I'd like to practice at the same time as the U-10 Red team coached by Kyle Kellner, to give the kids someone to scrimmage with and do some drills with when the numbers work out. They have chosen 5:45 - 7 PM on Thursdays at City Center Park in Chanhassen. I will be shooting for that and hopefully can get those on the schedule soon as well.
If you ever have questions, comments, or concerns during the season please don't hesitate to reach out to me. I'm looking forward to getting the boys together and getting the fall season started.
