As we approach the end of this season I am asking 8th grade players and parents to think about next years school soccer playing opportunities.
Players moving into 9th grade have the option of trying out for the HS team or choosing to play another year of JH. Please take some time as a family to talk about what your sons goals are for next season.
Whatever a player decides, I would be happy to give them an honest evaluation with steps to help them achieve their goals.
Also, thank all of you for filling out all the extra paperwork, driving kids to all the practices and dealing with all the last minute changes. These kids have some great parents!!!!
This week we will have practice 5:00-6:30 on Monday and Wednesday.
Tuesday we have an away game vs LS. Be at the field by 3:00 or at the bus by 2:30 wearing white.
Thursday and Friday we have home games vs M Central and M Township. All players must be at East High Field wearing Blue by 3:15.
Today we have an away game vs Manheim Central. Please arrive at the field by 3:00 or at the bus by 2:30.
IMPORTANT update…..due to football game traffic tonight the bus will be dropping players off for pickup in front of the HS. (By the Daubert Gym front entrance)
Your dinner box will be provided to you on the bus when we travel to MC today!!!
The LS game previously scheduled for Monday has been moved to Thursday October 22.
So, we will have three games in a row this week. CV away Wednesday, LS home Thursday, and Manheim Central away Friday. Thanks.
Practice Tuesday night has been approved by the school. Remember that we will be practicing from 5:00-6:30 due to darkness. Thanks
Bill Templin, AD, has confirmed that our scheduled game for tomorrow night will be played pending any last minute information. The bus time is 4:00PM. We will update you regarding the box meal tomorrow. Junior High will practice 5 – 6:30PM.
Due to school Covid protocol our game Monday is cancelled. Tuesday practice is a….. to be determined status. I will update everyone Tuesday morning.
Players and Parents,
We will not have Monday practice and our game against Manheim Central is “to be determined”. We will update you tomorrow on the game status and if you will need to pack food for the game as we may have to cancel our team meal order.
As we like to say in England…”fingers crossed” that our game against MC is still a go!!! We have suffered a number of set backs throughout the season but we continue to be confident that the boys demonstrate pride in the program. Heart and soul…an Etown Boys Soccer tradition.
