If you are on this email list and wished to be removed for any reason (e.g., not playing soccer anymore), please reply and let me know or you will keep getting these emails.
Please spread the word to all interested soccer players that we will be running soccer training sessions open to all High School boys and girls, including 8th graders, Tuesday's and Thursday's from 4:45-6:45 pm at the High School starting next Tuesday, May 18th. Note, we will hold these training sessions on a probationary status for 2 weeks to see if we get enough players to justify holding these sessions, afterwhich we will announce their continuation or termination. 
Please note that in addition to these Tu/Th training sessions for High School players, Juan Soto is running open pick-up soccer for all persons on Sunday's at 2:30 pm at Parque de Vida.
All serious high school soccer players are strongly encouraged to attend all sessions, as this is the only way to improve your first touch on the ball and get properly prepared for the upcoming seasons, which for the boys is only 3 months away.
Hope to see you on the pitch, Coach Kevin, Colin, Juan and Maddie
