MGSC would like to thank everyone for their support of the club through a very challenging period of time. Seeing the kids back on the field playing games this spring has been great. As the season reaches its mid-point, we want to update everyone on the next steps for the club.
Usually, this is the time of year we begin advertising for tryouts. Going forward, the club is adopting a different strategy. As the club mission makes clear, developing all players is at the core of our club. Developing players who love the game and become technically and tactically skilled players is our primary focus. This means developing our players and focusing on sound coaching of each player. We feel the best path forward is to keep teams as intact as possible. Doing so allows all players to develop to their fullest potential and for teams to earn placement in higher leagues through a combination of results and team effort. At each change in game format (eg 7v7, 9v9, 11v11) some team adjustments may become necessary to balance the rosters.
The window to extend early offers to current players recently opened and families can expect to see a letter in the next 7-10 days. After the early offer period is closed general registration will open to all. A tryout will only be necessary for players joining our club at U13 and above.
The club is working very hard to provide the best soccer environment for all of our players but we are also at a critical time in terms of support. The terms for all current MGSC officers expire at the end of this season. In order to keep the club vibrant and moving forward we need your help. It is critical that we have new members join the board of directors to help guide the future of the club. Simply put, without you it won't happen.
If you have questions about tryouts or team formation please contact our Director of Coaching, Bill Buckingham at MGSC.DOC@gmail.com
For questions about the board and other volunteer opportunities to support the club you can contact our VP, Doug Parrott @ MGSCsoccer@gmail.com
Thanks again for making this spring a successful season after such a long layoff. We are looking forward to moving forward with you in the fall!
