Greetings U6 & U8 Indoor Coaches, | Print |  E-mail
Welcome to the 2009/10 Foothills Grassroots Indoor House League Soccer Season. My name is Rob Tartamella and I am the Foothills Grassroots Programs Director and together with Colin Mackay who is our Foothills Grassroots Technical Director, we want to make sure that all of our Coaches & Assistant Coaches have the support that they need to have a successful Indoor Soccer Season. We are also your Club resource and are available to answer any questions and/or address any concerns that you may have.

First and foremost, I would like to thank all of you for taking the time to volunteer to coach your child’s team for this upcoming season. Volunteers are the backbone of our Program and without Club members like yourselves, we would not be anywhere near as successful as we are, so thank you.

I hope you will all make every effort to attend our upcoming Foothills Coaches Clinic tentatively scheduled for October 25th (details & confirmation will be posted on the website and/or emailed out once finalized). These clinics are very important to developing a strong overall program and can be an invaluable tool of reference throughout the season. For those Coaches with experience, it may provide for a nice refresher or provide you with some new idea’s, for those new to Coaching youth soccer, this will provide you with a solid core to get you going in the right direction to have a fun & productive season, so hopefully you will all be able to attend.

At this point in the season, here is where we are at with the following:

Team & Coach contact info
You should now all have access to your Team Roster (log into www.FoothillsGrassroots.com and put in your log in ID & password – same as when you registered your child) and your teams contact info. You should also all have access to contact info for Coaches for the other teams as well. For your convenience I’ve also attached a copy of the team roster’s & Coaches info at the bottom of this email.

Contacting your Team

You should all now be able to send out a communication to your team to introduce yourself & to welcome them to this upcoming season by logging into the database and doing a group email.

Equipment & Uniform Pick-up

Team equipment/ball bags are almost ready for pick-up & will be available at the Deer Run Community Centre shortly. We are also intending to use the Bownets that we used this past outdoor season for all house league games. These will hopefully be stored assembled for ease of use in the gym at the community centre.

Grassroots Jamboree

The Jamboree is tentatively scheduled for October 18th with details to be finalized, but maybe give the parents on your team a heads up. The Jamboree is a fun event for all of the Coaches, Parents & Players to get together, have some fun, and get to know one another in a fun Soccer environment.

Season Kick-off & Game Schedule

Game schedules are almost complete and should be available in the next few days (posted online at www.FoothillsGrassroots.com). All games for U6 & U8 House League will be played at the Deer Run Community Centre (cross-way with split gym) with U6’s playing on Thursdays from 6-7pm and our U8’s playing on Tuesdays from 6-7:15pm. As for right now, games are scheduled to commence October 20th.

That’s all for now, important updates & Program details will be posted on the Foothills Grassroots website so please remember to check back there often (rosters below). If any of you should have any questions please let me know otherwise I look forward to meeting all of you very soon.

See you all out on the pitch!!

Cheers,
