HTSA announces 2014 Blackhawk Player Placement dates.



HOUMA-TERREBONNE SOCCER ASSOCIATION

BLACKHAWK FUTBOL CLUB

 

 

Competitive League Player Placements

 

HTSA, under the Blackhawk Futbol Club banner, are holding Player Placements to form Competitive League Soccer Teams to compete during the 2014/2015 Season. Players from 9 to 17 years old who enjoy the sport and wish to train, develop & compete at a higher level should strongly consider attending the Player Placement Sessions.  Players who do not wish to compete in LCSL can still be placed on a HTSA Recreational soccer team during regular registration if the age group numbers permit. 

The focus of HTSA’s Blackhawk Futbol Club is to develop every soccer player while providing a positive, highly competitive, and enjoyable team-building environment.  We encourage all parents & players to attend their age specific meeting where club representatives will be available to answer questions. 

                       U10-U13s Meeting: Mon, Apr 28th, 6-8 pm, Terrebonne Parish Library- North Branch Gray

                       U14-U18s Meeting: Mon, June 2nd, 6-8 pm, Terrebonne Parish Library– Location TBD Houma

The dates and times for all age groups are listed below.  Players should attend both sessions to broaden the evaluation period by our coaches.  A makeup date is also provided should there be a conflict.  All sessions will be held at The Lakes Soccer Complex and there will be a one-time $5 attendance fee.  Players are required to attend the sessions of their appropriate age group.  All players new to LCSL must bring a copy of their birth certificate!!  Players may attend a next older age group session for consideration, but a final Board determination will be based on several factors including 1) the child's ability based on Blackhawk coaching staff evaluation, 2) Impact on both age groups/teams in question, long and short term and 3) Parent and player request/reasoning for moving up an age group.

 If you have a conflict with your age-group dates and wish to make alternate arrangements, or cannot attend the meeting and have questions; please contact Kevin Champagne, Player Placement Coordinator, at ckchampagne@yahoo.com (985) 381-1628 or Cecil Zeringue, HTSA President, at czeringue2@bellsouth.net (985) 232-8605.

Concussion Education

Louisiana has passed legislation that now requires youth sports organizations to notify its participants (players/parents/coaches) of the symptoms of concussions and the risks with continuing to participate with a possible concussion. LSA has prepared documents to help us meet the requirements of Louisiana Act 314.  Every parent and player must complete the LSA Informed Consent about Concussions prior to the start of the season.  Managers and coaches are to keep a copy of the LSA concussion Notification Form in their binder to be used at tournaments/practices/games when a possible concussion is suspected.

The appropriate forms can be found listed on LSA's website HERE.

Sportsmanship comes first!

From time-to-time, we'll get positive feed back from another team or club about the way Houma Soccer, HTSA or Blackhawk Futbol Club, carries itself at the soccer field.  Many times negative actions of a coach or parent will over shadow the truely positive intent and makeup of youth athletics and our club, so we greatly appreciate when another takes the time to acknowledge the goodness or kind act of a fellow member

HTSA would like to recognize and give props to Coach Ricky Alston and the U13 Black Ladyhawk team for displaying the kind of character and attitude that we strive to carry forth as an association!

"In light of the negative posts about field conditions, player sportsmanship, punches being thrown or not, etc, I wanted to pass along some comments by my young daughter.

She said her favorite team to play is Houma because of their sportsmanship. She said they are nice to us no matter who wins. They play hard but never dirty.

She said the coach looks you I the eyes when we were shaking hands. She also said that when he and the team said good game,they meant it.

She said the parents were never rude and seemed concerned even when one of our players was hurt.

I concur with all her observations. I know this year when we played there, the coach greeted us and told him to let him know if we needed anything. He seemed like a genuine guy.

I just wanted to pass this along on hoping someone affiliated with the club would see this and pass it on. This is not to knock any of our other opponents but Houma has just stood out."
