COACHES' NOTES

Last Updated 10/28/2020

I hope this email finds you all safe and well. It is finally nice to get some cold weather and a brief break from the heat. It’s funny that during the first cold front to blow through each year there are about 20 or 30 coworkers who stop by to let me know “It’s soccer weather.” They are correct! Once we start to cool off, it is definitely getting closer to the high school soccer season. There is an excitement among the coaches, and the players start to find a new energy as tryouts approach. We are all looking forward to a great year. I wanted to take a minute to touch base with you all on a few VERY important topics. 

The time of year has come where we reach out to our supporters within the community for the financial support necessary to have a program function like the one here at LTHS. As I am sure many of you have heard, the athletes are coming to a close on the program fundraiser for the year; the LTHS Play-a-Thon. The coaches and I spent some time doing inventory and we realize that we are in need of some key items this year to support the continued success of the program. Thanks to COVID, we have had to change our approach to fundraising this year as we are unable to do some of our traditional fundraisers. For the LTHS Play-a-thon, I deliberately attempted to put the emphasis on the athletes to reach out to their family and close friends in an effort to gain financial support from those closest to us. The goal of this was for these athletes, not necessarily the parents, to take a little ownership in the program and to take a bit of time to reach out to those who might be interested in supporting the program. They were encouraged to ask for donations on behalf of the Men’s Soccer program and many of them went above and beyond. Thank you for those of you who offered that support for the program. We truly appreciate it. 

Now, the Booster Club seeks to appeal to the parents of the athletes in the program. Again, we are having to be flexible in our fundraising and thus our Corporate Sponsorships are vital to the financial needs of the Booster Club. The Booster Club offers financial support to the program in many different ways. They provide meals for the athletes, the awesome/memorable banquets each year, travel to tournaments, and many other “behind the scene” items. When you think about the number of athletes in the program, these expenses start to add up. We are asking that every parent in the program seek to gain support from the businesses we are all connected to within our own work environments. In the past, most parents have been able to obtain at least 3 Corporate Sponsorships for the program and it would be awesome if we could duplicate that this year. Typically, this is relatively easy as we ask parents to reach out to any and all businesses they are connected to such as dentist offices, banks, supply chains, family businesses, etc. Most businesses are extremely happy to support good causes. Attached is a form that gives you all the details of corporate sponsorships. We truly hope we can count on the participation of all the parents currently in the program. We want this experience for the athletes to be the best possible.

Lastly, I want you all to know that I am working on the calendar for the season. This will have everything about the season on it in terms of the expected timeline for all practices as well as game times for all three teams. I have attached the game schedule so you all can start to get an idea of the season. Please note the important dates below for all athletes that make a team. 

  • Nov 30th and Dec 1st – Try outs for LTHS Men’s Soccer Program

I appreciate your time and dedication to the program. I hope you will all take an active role in the program/season over the coming months as it truly does benefit these young men.  High School soccer is one of the greatest experiences they will have the opportunity to be part of. Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or need anything.


Thank you all so much.
