Assessments (Canfield)

  • Steps to forming teams for travel: 1. Put teams together 2. Need a coach from each team 3. Coaches meeting/final decisions.

  • In July, travel soccer coaches meeting: teams will be formed from input from 2 travel directors, coaches and data

  • Looks like we’ll have 2-3 GU10 teams but only 1 confirmed coach at this time


MLS Presentation (Terry)

  • Considering a new program for this coming fall for the peewees and maybe U-6 which would entail MLS coaches leading drills for peewee and U-6 and the Littleton coaches observing to learn how to run a practice and certain drills

  • This is part of the exchange program with MLS. If we spend $10,000 through MLS (summer soccer camps, uniforms, paint, training, etc) we get coaching credits. We could get free coaching clinics for things we already need to purchase or spend money on.


New uniforms for Travel Soccer.

  • $40 for just the shirt, $60 for the uniform if order between 1-500 uniforms

  • Takes 6-8 weeks for orders

  • Kids on older teams can have a team vote if want to spend extra money on new uniforms

  • New U-10s will get new uniforms

  • Should order 200-250 adult mediums of the wicking material

  • Possibly could have an in-town swap shop for uniforms if no names put on backs


Season Feedback:

  • Room for improvement of equal teams for U-6 and U-8

  • Parent requests are secondary when setting up the teams

  • Coaches meeting pre-season needed to shift players as needed to balance U-6 and U-8 teams and get feedback from coaches, director and coordinators
