Opening Day, Schedules & Volunteers

Hi Parents & Players!
This Saturday is our Opening Day activities for our Rec Division.  We are excited are you?  U6 Division starts at 9:00; U8 Division begins at 10:15; while our U10 Division gets going at 11:30.  At the end of their session, there will be a few things for the players to do including a bounce house.  Also, the players should stop by the concession stand for a free bag of popcorn and/or an ice pop.  :o)
Hopefully, you have heard from your child’s coach by now.  If not, don’t hesitate to let me know.  The schedules have been posted.  Unfortunately, I found a mistake while getting the referees assigned.  So, I will post new schedules by tomorrow (August 7) for all the teams; but I wanted to let you know.  The mistake is only on September 27th.  I accidentally listed the games at 9 AM and 11 AM.  However, the games should begin at 9:30 AM or 11:45 AM.  So, if you were scheduled for 9 AM; the correct time is 9:30; if you were scheduled for 11 AM, the correct time is 10:45.  So correct and/or update your calendars for that date.  (FYI:  The times on the following week, October 4th, are correct since our awards presentation is at 10:10.)
The soccer board appreciates all of the volunteers for this season.  I will be starting to contact all of the volunteers.
See you on the field!

Referees in Training

We started a program last season called “Referees in Training”. This gives players an opportunity to try officiating either a U6 or U8 game throughout the season. Although we “advertised” late, we had a few players willing to give it a try. We are opening up this program again for this season. The program is open to all players who are 12 years old or older; and have played soccer at least two full seasons. Most of our U6 and U8 games are on Tuesdays, Thursdays or Saturday mornings. With one or two Mondays or Wednesdays mixed in. Also, mark your calendar. We will be having a referee meeting on Thursday, August 7th, at 7 PM. It would be good for your son/daughter to attend if possible.  If you have any questions or if your son/daughter would like to participate in this program, please contact Melissa Phillips at millcreeksoccerclub@gmail.com.

Two Quick Things!

TWO QUICK THINGS!
#1:  We have a new parent shirt this year!  It is available in sizes from YL to A4XL.  The color is Cascade Blue, and it says on the front of the shirt, “Soccer Parent and proud of it.”  The cost is only $12.  You can order one when you register your child for the Fall season; or you can place one with us directly at millcreeksoccerclub@gmail.com.
ParentShirt
#2:  Our club has been invited in an Indy Eleven game on Saturday, September 13th.  The game starts at 7, but we will probably need to arrive earlier.  It is open to players as well as parents and families.  Depending on the ages of the kids that sign-up and how many, some of our players will possibly be ball boys, flag carriers, player escorts, be involved in a mini game, etc.  It’s an excellent opportunity.  The cost is $14.30 for each person attending.  We will need to know by Sunday, July 27th, if you are planning on going.  (millcreeksoccerclub@gmail.com)
For the payment:  you can pay with one check when you register your child for the fall season and we will write out a check to Indy Eleven for all the tickets; or you can pay with a separate check made out to Indy Eleven.  However, do not need the money right away, if things are tight for your family — just the “reservation”.

Adult Summer Soccer League

Parents & Coaches!!!
Here is your opportunity to play soccer.  The WCSSF offers an Adult Summer League in the months of June – July.  The games are played on Sunday afternoons, beginning at 2 PM.  The games consist of two 35 minute halves.  The first game is Sunday, June 8th.  However, our club needs to know by Friday, May 23rd, if you are wanting to play.  There will be 4 home games and 4 away games.
You may form your own team, or join our “Parents & Coaches” team.  Teams may have an unlimited number of players, although only 12 players are allowed to play on any given Sunday.  The only stipulation is that the player cannot be attending high school in the Fall.  (FYI:  If you have a High School Senior in your home, this is their chance to play with their friends.  They can form a team of friends to play through the summer.)
The Adult Summer League is just a “fun” league – no standings — no tournaments — just soccer once a week.  The cost to participate is $70.  [We don't post this often, but our club tries hard to keep the cost as low as possible.  Here is the overview of what the $70 covers:  $11 for a shirt/jersey; $18 for Indiana Soccer player pass; $35 each player for referee fees (4 home games at $100 each game divided by 12 players); $2 per player for WCSSF administrative fee; $4 per player to cover paint to line the fields and mowing costs.]
If you would like to join our “Parents & Coaches” team, please go to the following link to register:  https://workspaces.acrobat.com/app.html#d=gSBeocuuPozuNqLwKHzIaQ.  Remember, you MUST sign-up by Friday, May 23rd.  Please list “Parents & Coaches” in the team box.
If you would prefer to fill out a registration form and mail it in, download the 14 Adult Summer Registration – Mail InYou can mail the registration form to Melissa Phillips, 9388 S. County Road 100 W., Clayton, IN  46118-9245.

Picture Day!

Whoo Hoo!  I think the weather is going to be in our favor tomorrow.  Therefore, we have chosen to do pictures outside.  It’s suppose to be sunny and no wind.  However, for those teams that are scheduled in the morning you might want to make sure your child has a warm jacket on or wrapped in blanket while waiting for pictures to be taken and then of course they may change their clothes into pants if they wish for their practice that is right after pictures.  Remember to bring your biggest smile!  :o)
