We are excited for another year of Middle School Girls Soccer participating in the CYO of Greater Dayton league! We will try to outline some of the details as we know today and would be happy to answer any questions. Coach Dan Burkhardt and Coach John Keenan will be teaming up to lead the girls this year.
Training will begin the first week of August on Tues. (Aug. 4th) and Thurs. (Aug. 6th) night from 5:30-7:00 at the DC Campus in front of the school. We will continue to use those days as the practice days during the season with some variations depending upon the scheduling of games during the week.
The season (approx. 10 games) runs from the last week of August to the end of September with a tournament following the regular season. There will be some games on Saturdays but most will be week nights. Game locations will be in the Dayton area. A team activity fee ($150?) will be administered through Dayton Christian Schools.
If your daughter is playing on another “select” soccer team we would still welcome them to join us. We understand practice and games may overlap and will work with them on their schedules.
Coach Dan has greater than 15 years of soccer coaching and holds soccer coaching certificate (Youth Module II) . Coach John has experience coaching both soccer and basketball for over 10 years and also holds the Youth Module II coaching license. Most recently coaching select soccer in the BPYSL.
*****We need to know how NOW how many girls would like to play so we can plan the season. Please e-mail us and let us know if your daughter is interested and if she plays on another team in the Fall. ****
We are really excited about the opportunity for the girls and it is the coaches goal to build team unity. We are partnering with Paul and Jessica Orme (Varsity head coaches) to add some team building activities as well as introductions to the Varsity team. We will make it fun but also a learning experience teaching them individually based on their level of ability. All girls will get playing time and given the size of the field and the style of play we will need many girls on the roster.
Please e-mail us with any questions.
