  • If I know in advance that we do not have enough players to play a game, I will email the team to let you know.


Team Snack:

  • I won’t be able to organize a team snack at practices or games.
  • This is an optional project.  If you would like to organize a team snack, please email to let me know.
  • If we have a volunteer for team snack, I will post that information here.  If you don’t see any volunteers listed here, please ensure that your child has snacks and drinks for both practices and games.
MMS Cleats for Feets program:
Coach Cam asked me to remind you that MMS has a trade-in program for gently used cleats.  MMS has a couple dozen pairs of shoes here at the school.  If you need a pair, please stop by the front office.  If you have a pair to donate, then please do.    Children often outgrow a pair of shoes before the shoes are worn out.  So, bring what you have and take what you need.   If you have any questions, please contact Coach Cam, whose contact information is located at the bottom of this page.

Coach’s Strategy:
Several years ago, I acted as an assistant coach for a MMS soccer team.  That is my only experience with soccer coaching.  But, my son reminded me that all of the players on our team have played soccer for several seasons, and they have a lot of knowledge about the game and how to practice.  Since our players are in 4th and 5th grade now, I love the idea of helping them to take more responsibility for their practices and games.  My strategy is going to be to focus on the fun, and to encourage our team to manage their practice and game time, with a little help from me.
 
This year, our practices and games will include badges that can earn rewards for our players.  Please click here to watch a 3-minute video with more detail.
