3/20 - 3/21: Spring Break; Varsity Playoff Roster need to be back at the end of the break
Hey LTHS Soccer
Once again, we as coaches hope this finds you all well. It has been an interesting few weeks, with new information coming our way frequently. I wish we had all the answers to make it easier, but the reality is that we are in limbo trying to make the best of the situation the same way you are. The Coaches and I decided that we still want all of our soccer players working towards a goal of improved skills and staying in shape for the next season. Our playoff roster will be working towards a possible continuation of the current season, whereas our sub varsity will be working toward continued total player development for next season. Please understand that we know there are a bunch of different moving pieces this week. This will be the first full week of online learning, coupled with the first full week of staying at home quarantine. Our goal is to provide something that will help distract and develop our players. We are asking our sub varsity to incorporate a workout that will provide different options for all of our athletes. The flexible options, we created will be able to meet the different needs and schedules of all our athletes.
On schoology we will post a choice board for the sub varsity players. There will be a series of 12 different activities or options for the boys to complete during the week. Our hope is that they will be able to select 9 total activities from the list to complete by Friday. These activities are as simple as 20 minute at home cardio challenge up to short page articles about leadership or growing as team players. We want every sub varsity athlete to take part in these activities to find joy in learning about the sport in a number of different capacities. The submissions of activities will also take place on schoology. We want to see how the first week goes, and then will move on to a system of submissions for accountability in two weeks.
For the Varsity Playoff Roster, I would like to have a Google Hangout with them this afternoon at 4pm. I sent a text to the captains to pass along but please encourage your sons to be by the computer at 4pm today at the meeting. Here is the link...meet.google.com/yqf-kdzp-kpc.
We will be discussing some of our plans moving forward.
Again, we recognize that we all have a great deal going on, but sometimes the best way to make it through change is by finding elements of normalcy in the hecticness. These young men will be able to find distractions from the everyday by playing and doing what they love. We want them to see that even though the season ended, we are ready to plan for next year and the continued growth of our soccer program and individual goals can still be accomplished. Thank you so much for your continued support and your willingness to try something new and different.
As always please let us as coaches know if there is anything we can do to help!
