Where: Victory Fields in Crete (games will be played in Lowell if
Coach: Shawn Thomas
We have just started the third session of indoor games and training.
The last day for indoor training is Monday March 28. There will no training on Monday March 21. First day of outdoor training will be Monday April 4. This team will
train on Mondays and Wednesdays from 6-7:30 at Victory Fields in Crete
like you did last year. The only day I know right now that there will be no outdoor training is Monday May 30 for the Memorial Day holiday. Spring is a crazy weather season so kids may practice in the rain, may be asked to come to Hallmark for practice or practice may be canceled due to the weather. The players will practice in the cold so please make sure they are dressed accordingly. Please remember that kids should wear white and black practice gear on Mondays and all blue on Wednesdays. If your player does not have black blue is fine. Last day of outdoor training will depend on last league game. Spring season is an 8 game season. This team will also be playing in one tournament. The tournament is the Watermelon tournament in Rockford which is June 11 and 12. More info on the tournament when it gets closer.
Opening weekend of Spring season is the first weekend in May. Games may be scheduled into April if clubs agree on it. I go this Sunday March 13 to make the schedule. Games can be Saturdays or Sundays and maybe during the week. If a game is scheduled during the week I will do my best to get it scheduled on a training day. I will forward you a schedule when it becomes available online to everyone. This shows me as a club rep that NISL has finalized it and no changes should be made.
The u11 Indiana Magic West is in the Bronze 1/S division. Right now this team is scheduled to play for their away league games in Bolingbrook, Lemont, Downers Grove and Wheaton. 4 games will be played at home.
For home games players should wear white jersey and away games blue jersey. Always bring both jerseys with you to games. Players are expected to be at all game 30 minutes prior to kick off ready to warm up. Joanna Battaglia is going to continue to be the TA for this team. If your player will not be making practice please let her know so she can contact Shawn. If your player will not be making a game please let her know sooner then later so if we need to find another player to help we can. Most emails from me I will ask her to pass on to the team. She will also be sending out game confirmations with directions when they become available. Regular questions that may have to do with practices or games please ask Joanna, if you are unsure of how your player is doing or need something else please contact me.
Tryouts for the Indiana Magic 2011/2012 seasons will be at the end of May early June. More details when it gets closer. As always if you have any questions of any sort or if you think I forgot something please let me know.
