Directors Notes -Fifth Edition/Volume 2

Coaches!  I hope this finds you all well!

On behalf of the entire MO-Girls Staff I wanted to thank all of you who were able, for attending the PCA Double Goal Coach Certification Meeting last Sunday.  We had an awesome turnout from our U9-U12 age groups, a true reflection of your commitment to providing our young girls the best possible and most positive soccer experience.  


A majority of us Director's have participated in the course three times now, and I know that each time I sit through the discussions as a refresher, I am able to grab something new, either a quote or a different idea I could use to improve as a coach.  Last Sunday I walked away having spent much of the 90 minutes reflecting on how my coaching and teaching is received by my players and I was motivated to improve even now in my 24th year of coaching.  


We (the MO Girls Directors) were so encouraged by the turnout at the PCA meeting AND because we are always attempting to execute the ideation suggestions from last winters coaches meeting - - > "do more as a coaching staff", we wanted to do something a little different and show you our appreciation.  So we have secured a ticket for each of you to the September 18th FC game vs RedBull 2. Just so happens it's MO-Girls Night that evening so this ticket allows you to join your players (who also have a ticket courtesy of the club) for a 'positive" team night away from the training field. We also felt it would be another good opportunity to gather as a staff and do some "housekeeping", maybe give away a few prizes, and of course offer you a beverage of your liking :) . We will send some more details on this as a reminder but here is the overall idea.  We will have the coaches tickets in the Performance Training Center at WWT Soccer Park in Fenton the evening of September the 18th. Come pick them up at about 5:25pm where we will have some refreshments and maybe some appetizers. As you arrive we will do a short Coaches Meeting from 5:30pm-6:00pm before we send you on your way to tailgate with your team/s before the game starts!

Again, thank you for your continued support of this club, and your commitment to be the best person you can be fore the families of your team!  I hope to see you before, but if not, I’ll see you at 5:30pm on the 18th!!
