Coach: Cesar Zambrano
TA: Steve Goldman
First day of outdoor training will be Tuesday April 5. This team will train on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6-7:30 at Victory Fields in Crete like you did last year. 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 Tuesdays and all blue on Thursdays. 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 three tournaments. The tournaments are: US Club Cup which begins in April (3 games will be played in April for this), The Red Lion Tournament in Indianaplois which is April 30 and May 1. The Best of the Midwest in Lowell, Memorial Day weekend. More info for tournaments when they get closer. Someone is already working on hotels for the Red Lion tournament. 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 u12 Indiana Magic West is in the Platinum 1/S division. Right now this team is scheduled to play their away league games in Wheaton, Plainfield, Naperville and Crown Point.
4 games will be played at home.
For home games players should wear white jersey black shorts and white socks and away games all blue. Always bring both jerseys with you to games. Players are expected to be at all games 30 minutes prior to kick off ready to warm up. Steve Goldman is going to continue to be the TA for this team. If your player will not be making practice please let him know so he can contact Cesar. If your player will not be making a game please let him know sooner then later so if we need to find another player to help we can. Most emails from me I will ask him to pass on to the team. He 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 Steve, 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.
