Boys Soccer-information and update

Parents and players,

 

Thanks to all that were able to attend the parent meeting on Friday.  It was great to see so many people and the dedication to the soccer program.  Below please see the information that we went over if you were unable to attend.

Attendance:

Your attendance policies for players. Players must be verified in each class to patriciate in training or games.  If any player is unverified, they will not be allowed to practice or play a in a game and will be sent home.

Game Attendance for spectators:

Tickets - each player will get 2 tickets only. These tickets will be good for home and away events (if host schools are allowing visiting spectators.) We are the only school I’m currently aware of that is not allowing visiting spectators.  You will need your ticket for away games.  All game tickets were sent home with the players today 9/14/20.

Transportation:

Bus rides- there will be assigned seating, loading the bus back to front with assigned seating for the season.  All player must be masked, windows will be down no matter the weather (dress for the worst). Player will be assigned to the same set all season. We have four away games.

All away games will have the bus pick-up at the High School in front of the main entrance.

Parents are allowed to and HIGHLY ENCOURAGED to drive their students to and from games if they complete an alternate transportation form. PARENTS/GUARDIANS my only transport THEIR SON. No cousins, friends, god sons, etc.

STUDENTS MAY NOT DRIVE THEMSELVES TO GAMES

The school highly encourages the boys to go home after their game, especially the JV team.

The bus schedule is posted under “Files” on the soccer page.

Game Procedures:

All player must have a mask.  While on the bench, pregame talks and post-game talks all players must be masked.  Social distancing will be enforced always but especially on the bench.  Game balls will be sanitized by ball boys.  Hand sanitizer is high encouraged.

Player expectations:

I always expect each player to give their best effort.  Effort and a good attitude will help the program progress and will allow all of us to thrive.  Team first before “me”.  Honor system for exposures to COVID 19, think of your team, their family, and your friends…Safety first!!! 

Advocate for yourself.  If you have an issue with anything, please speak to your coach.  Matt and I are very approachable and are open to hear from you guys.  You are always able to speak to either of us no matter what team you were assigned to, we are a soccer program, not individual teams.

Northshore conference COVID protocol is posted to the “files” tab on the soccer page.

Captains:

Essays and interviews. Simply life skills for the players trying to get a captain spot.  Just like real life...applying for a job and then interviewing for it.  

Picture Day:

Picture day is September 18th, this Friday, at 3:30pm. We will be taking them at the stadium at Thomas Jefferson Middle School.

Fundraiser:

I would like to do the Lace it Up Program.  Lace it Up is a fundraiser for pediatric cancer.  I think it is fitting to do something for their peer group… that are unfortunate ones enough to get cancer.  We should be thankful that we are healthy and playing a game.  Not all kids can. We would purchase gold shoelaces from them ($5-$7/pair, hopefully purchasing one and then donating the same amount) and wear them at our home games.  I will get a count from the boys Wednesday and get them ordered.

GAME 9/15/20 at Nicolet:

Nicolet will host Port Washington in Boys Soccer (JV-5pm/V-7pm) on Tuesday this week at Nicolet High School (originally scheduled at Uihlein...Uihlein is currently closed).

All spectators should enter the home side of the stadium and must have a JV pass to get into the JV match and a Varsity pass to get into the V match.  The stadium will be cleared out immediately following the JV match so the Varsity spectators can be admitted.  All spectators must remain in the bleachers on their designated side.

 

I think that is all for now…although I have the nagging feeling I’m forgetting something.  Stay tuned as we are always subject to change this season. 

Quick side note: We are playing the school I graduated from and coached at for many years.  Fitting for my first game as a head coach.  Guys go out there and show the conference what Port can do.  I keep my fingers crossed that it is not the case, but every game could be our last of the season and we should play that way.  I want us to do our best and winning is the goal!  Work hard, be proud, be confident and represent yourselves, your family, and your school.

Go Pirates,

Pre-season- Get your forms in!

Parents and players,

 

All athletic forms are due by FRIDAY, September 4th at 3pm.  If you wait until September 7th, you will not be able to practice the first day of tryouts!  The athletic office will be closed due to Labor Day so please get everything in by September 4th so not to interrupt tryouts.

Also, to prepare for the season please provide a white, black, and green shirt for your soccer player (they do not need to be Port Washington gear. The color is most important).  Due to COVID restrictions we cannot share pennies and all training gear should be washed after every practice or game.  It is important that all players have all three colors with them at practice so that we can still do activities that we would typically use pennies for.  In addition to t-shirts please make sure you have a mask and hand-sanitizer.  

The WIAA has released info on restriction for games and rules for social distancing that I will make sure all our student athletes understand and follow.  It will become routine… there are no big changes that will not be easy to adapt to. 

I’m looking forward to the season and I hope your all getting in shape so that we can dive right into soccer because we have no time to waste with a shorter season.

Stay safe and Go Pirates,

I hope everyone is doing well and staying safe.

 

Go Pirates!

TODAY'S MEETING

Players and parents,

 

We will be meeting at 6:30 by the soccer fields at Thomas Jefferson Middle School.  The meeting should be brief...I don't anticipate it taking more than a half hour.  Again this is more of a meet and greet and we will try to field as many questions as possible but we are at the will of whatever the WIAA decides for our season.

Can't wait to meet everyone tonight!

Stay safe,

UPDATE-The fall season is coming

Players and parents,

 

The WIAA has issue a new start date for our season at noon today (7/23/20).  We now cannot start our season until September 7th.  We must by WIAA rules, have a week of contact prior to games starting.  This will inevitably push-off our season some and possibly cause some game cancellations. 

We will still be having an all program meeting on Tuesday July 30th at 6:30-7 pm.  I plan to have us meet outside either on the football stands or on the soccer field.  Of course, this is weather depending and I like to be outside so that we can safely socially distance during the meeting.  All players please attend if you are able to.  Please keep in mind that I may not have many answers for you at the meeting due to being at the will of the WIAA but at a minimum I can meet the players and they can meet Matt and I.

We will not be having our 5 allowed contact days this season due to the COVID restrictions.  I will continue to update everyone as soon as I learn more.

I hope all is well and everyone is staying safe. 

 

Go Pirates,

The fall season is coming

Players and Parents,

We are right around the corner of the start of our season.  COVID dependent of course, we are closely monitoring the Wisconsin States guidelines for reopening and keeping our soccer players safe and healthy. 

Assuming all goes right we need to be prepared.  Unfortunately I do not know the team.  With that said, I need a couple boys to set up and become leaders for some captains practices. I do not want any captain practice to go against State health guidelines.  I think if we had two to three a week would be appropriate so we can organize who can come on what day to keep numbers at 10 players for an hour.  Since these are captain practices I can not be present or coach but I can help organize it.  Please contact me at philipnawrocki@gamil.com if your interested in leading this program. 

I uploaded a Boucher about a preseason soccer camp coming up.  Its called; Boys High School Super Camp.  I have coached it for years along with other coaches that are some of the best in the State.  Coach Bob Gansler a former US National Team Coach (Google him) has been a guest coach there for the past decade or so. Besides great coaches most teams in the Northshore conference attend and many from outside the conference.  Playing and seeing our completion before the season is a great motivator for our hardwork in training that is coming.  It's a great experience and high encouraged to attend if your able.  I would love to make Port more of a presence and let the other teams know that we are coming for them :)

If you haven't started already get in shape!  If you plan to make varsity you should be able to do about a six minute mile.  I also high encourage push-ups (at least 20 at a time as many sets as you can do), burpees (10 at a time, 3 sets), planks (for a minimum of a minute) and sit-ups/crunches (3 sets of 40-50 reps).  In addition soccer in not a continuous same pace game.  We sprint, jog and walk.  So include that into your workouts.  For example, sprint a city block, jog a block and walk a block and repeat. All this direction falls on each player to take responsibility for their fitness so that as a team and program we are strong. Do it for yourself and you teammates!  Trust me when I say you want to be in shape before tryouts.

With try-outs mentioned we are still setting the date for that start based on restrictions.  I will update you all asap on dates.  I will also let you know the dates of the 5 contact days the WIAA allows the coaches to have exposure to their teams.  Those practices will not have any determination on who makes what team! We will simply play small sided games, a bit of conditioning and scrimmage if numbers are good. 

More updates to come.  Please contact me with any questions and I will do my best to field them.  Please be patient with me as I learn the Port Washington system.  I am very excited for our season and coaching a positive hard working program. 

I hope everyone is staying healthy and I hope all is well.

Go Pirates,

Coach Philip Nawrocki
