Registration is now open for U9 and U10s to join for Summer 2015 teams. Sometime before the mid-October MEA break, we'll have assessments ('tryouts') for U9 and U10 teams for Summer 2015 (we will email the date to all registered families as soon as we have it nailed down). We try to place every kid on a team that's right for him/her. Teams will be formed and announced 2-3 days after the assessments.
We form teams so early to allow U9/U10 players to join the club-paid training that starts on the first Tuesday of November. Every Tuesday from 5:30-6:50pm the U9/10s are with Coerver footskills trainers at the Rosemount Dome, beginning November 4 and running through the end of February.

Children who feel in control of their own development are more likely to have full Emotional Tanks. Put your children in charge of their own development as athletes. Let them know your advice is available for the asking. Then...and this is the hard part...don't offer it unless they ask.
Parents… going to a performance and watching your child can be stressful. We all want them to succeed at everything they do. But for most adults, you are only watching and stressing over one kid. As a coach, they are all your kids. How am I going to encourage this one, how am I going to get this one to be more disciplined, this one’s grades, weekend choices, building confidence, push this one, pull that one, keep this one happy even when they don’t start, keep this one feeling like they are adding value to the team even though they don’t play, etc. etc. Multiply your concerns times the number of kids on the team – that is where good coaches are.
