Soccer Meeting Follow-Up

Wednesday, June 11, 2014

Thank you to those players/parents/families that attended the meeting on May 28! I really enjoyed seeing faces, answering questions and getting pumped up for the upcoming season. In this email I will answer some of the questions some of you may have had from the meeting and provide those that were absent some of the important things that were covered. Please visit this webpage periodically to see updates and information. Thanks again and I look forward to meeting your daughter and/or getting to know her better!

Important Info:

IMMEDIATE NEEDS FOR VOLUNTEERS:

We are in immediate need for the following volunteer role:

- volunteer helper (creates Sign-up genius for tryout volunteers & finds 3 managers for each team)

Please email Coach Hart ASAP if you are interested in helping out! Thank you!

Other needs:

- Co-Treasurers (upcoming season will shadow current treasurers; next season will take over role)

ELIGIBILITY FORMS:

- Eligibility Forms are due to the Athletics Office before girls can start tryouts/practice in August. Please turn in forms the week of Aug 18. After forms are turned in, your daughter will get a half sheet paper that acts as the "ticket" to tryout. Turn in the half sheet of paper at check-in at the first day of tryouts. That paper is signed by the office which means they have all their paperwork in and can start tryouts/practice. They cannot tryout until they turn-in that half sheet signed by the Athletics Office.

They also need to pay at that same time: $275 participation fee and $40 for ASB card. First day of tryouts – Mon, August 25 @ 5:00pm.

- ALL Forms can be obtained by:

* picking them up at the LWHS office
* going here: http://www.lwsd.org/school/lwhs/athletics/Pages/EligibilityForms.aspx
* picking them up at an Open Practice

PARTICIPATION FEES:

Our booster club can provide financial aid to help pay full or partial scholarships (depending on number of applicants and money in our account). Please fill out the financial aid and return by August 1st. Your daughter can also obtain a financial aid form from the open practices this summer or print off our website.

SUMMER TRAINING:

- Summer Open Practices: Check the summer training schedule/calendar for specific dates and times!

- Girls (returners and newcomers) are expected to attend at least 2 of the open practices this summer. You do NOT need your paperwork in to come to summer practices. If your daughter will be absent it would be nice for her to send me an email giving me an update on how her summer conditioning/training is going: shart@lwsd.org

- A summer training packet was handed out at the meeting. If your daughter is interested in trying out in the fall it would be nice for her to have it. She can get it from one of the following ways:

* getting one at a summer practice
* email me and I can mail it to your home. (please give me your home mailing address)Thanks!

LIL' KANGS GIRLS' SOCCER CAMP:

Our goal is to have 100, 7-12 year old girls sign up to attend our first annual Lil' Kangs Camp! Thank you to all the players that have volunteered to coach :). A follow-up email with more details regarding coach training will be coming later on.

WE NEED EVERY NEW AND RETURNING PLAYER TO RECRUIT AT LEAST ONE, 7-12 YEAR OLD GIRL TO SIGN-UP FOR OUR CAMP! If you can accomplish this task, then we will have our goal of 100 campers!

Parents, please encourage your daughter to bring flyers or post a flyer at all their favorite places in Kirkland...WE NEED TO GET THE WORD OUT! Right now we have ~20 campers signed up, WE NEED MORE! Remember this is one of our biggest fundraisers for our soccer program. Thanks everyone for your help! Camp Registration Flyers can be found on our website.

PLAYER QUESTIONNAIRE:

We would like each player to fill out and turn in the Player Questionnaire. You can do this by:

* printing one from the website and turning it in at a summer practice
* emailing answers to Coach Hart: shart@lwsd.org

FAQs:

1. How do I give feedback or ask questions to the Booster Club? Send an email to: lwhsgirlssoccer@gmail.com

2. How do I volunteer for the soccer program and/or one of the teams? Please contact the Booster Club: lwhsgirlssoccer@gmail.com

3. Yes, there will still be a charge to get into games.

4. If you have concerns you can talk to the district. Like always, you can go to a school board meeting as well. http://www.lwsd.org/Pages/default.aspx

5. We could run a concession stand if we'd like. We would need parents to take charge on this. i.e. contacting school, getting it set-up, etc. Send feedback to lwhsgirlssoccer@gmail.com

6. LWSD does not have a PE for sports program setup. You can discuss this with the school district. By not doing this, it helps teachers keep jobs. We would lose PE teaching jobs if this is implemented.

Thank you & GO KANGS!

SPU Soccer Tournament

Hello Soccer Players and Families!

 

I wanted to inform you all of an amazing opportunity we have to participate in a summer high school tournament! Any new or returning player (incoming 9th-12th graders) can sign up to participate in this tournament. This 7v7 tournament will be held on Saturday, July 26th at Seattle Pacific University. High School girls’ soccer teams from the state of Washington will be participating. This gives us an opportunity to play against other high schools, build team unity and prepare for our upcoming season. Another bonus: the SPU soccer coaches will be there!

 

Please let me know if you’d like to participate in this tournament! The more teams we can send the better! I will need a final count by June 11th.

 

Spread the word to other new or returning LW soccer players! Let me know if you have any questions!

 

~Coach Hart
