No practice 9/28

Although it may stop raining by the time practice is supposed to begin, I have decided to cancel today's practice.  It would be best to avoid any more injuries from a wet field.  I'll see the boys tomorrow.

Contact me with questions @ 920-266-9607

9/18 Update

Hello parents and players,

Great effort on Thursday night! Although we lost 3-1, we possessed the ball more and looked like the stronger team.  We only have good things in front of us.

Coach Phil put this in his update that he posted the other day but here is another reminder about Picture Day.  Picture Day is TODAY (9/18) @ 3:30.  Please be sure the players are at the stadium field with their GREEN soccer kits.  Ordering information will be posted soon.  Contact me @ 920-266-9607 with any questions.

Reminder: Our game on Tuesday (9/22) is an away game. If you are filling out travel waivers on a game-to-game basis, please have your player bring it to Monday's practice.  The form can be found in the "Team Files".  Again, contact me with any questions.

 

Go Pirates!!

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,

JV Update

Hello parents and players!

 

This message will both test your alerts you signed up for and provide some important information.....

1)  Here is my Google Voice number 920-266-9607 - Although my main source of communicating with everyone will be through this site, you may use my number to give me any updates on your player such as giving me a heads up if he will miss a practice/game.  Feel free to call me to have a conversation about the progress of your player.  This number does accept and send text messages as well.  All of the boys have this number too.

2)  Our first game is tomorrow, Sept 15th!  It is an away game played at Uihlein Soccer Park.  The bus will leave fairly promptly @ 3:30 from the high school.  Please be sure your player is there before 3:30. 

Remember, you are allowed to drive your player to and from the game.  Be sure to fill out the waiver ahead of time.  I suggest handing it into me today at practice or have your player turn it into the office tomorrow.

You can find the waiver here - https://drive.google.com/file/d/1Nj8i9DwZJmgamVaI46p8tBKhCsr1oJe0/view 

Also, if you are driving your player to the game there is a chance that visiting spectators will not be allowed in the stadium.

 

I suggest reading the Extracurricular Guidelines if you haven't already.  You can find that here:

https://docs.google.com/document/d/18z1NlaHA4a_I-haA9R6sBZ3TCywJfWYUSNrkqWnliyI/edit

 

That is all for now.  We'll be in touch.  Go Pirates!!

Parent Meeting Friday 9/11/20

Players and Parents,

Teams have been assigned today.  I am happy to say we have good numbers for both varsity and junior varsity.  Tomorrow 9/10/20 the players will be with their teams and we will begin practice for all levels at 3:30-5 pm.  Training will be at 3:30-5 for the rest of the season.

Friday at 5:15pm I would like to hold the parent meeting.  I would like to do it outside on the stadium field at Thomas Jefferson Middle School.  Please bring a lawn chair if you'd like to sit during the meeting as the field will be wet.  I will have everyone spread out on the field near the bleacher for a safe social distance meeting.  I will try to keep the meeting brief.  As know, this season is obviously different than any other and we will have to change as necessary with any curve-balls that come our way.  

 I look forward to seeing you all there.  Thanks for your dedication to the program.

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,
