Welcome to the FarPost e-newsletter, a new communication tool for Sudbury Youth Soccer. One of our primary goals over the past couple of seasons has been to improve our communication with our members. We believe it’s important for all members of the Sudbury Youth Soccer family to know about changes we’re making to provide the best soccer experience possible for players, referees, coaches and families here in Sudbury.
We are working hard to improve our communications of goals and the mission of Sudbury Youth Soccer. How many members have actually read our mission statement?
The mission of the Sudbury Youth Soccer Association shall be to provide the opportunity and training for the youth of Sudbury, Massachusetts, to learn the game of soccer through the development of individual skill, fitness, teamwork, and fair play.
The goal of our program is not to create the next high school, college, professional or national team player. Our goal is to provide all kids and families in Sudbury with the best opportunities to learn the game of soccer and develop skills for the future. To do this we’ve implemented curriculums that build upon the same basic goals from U6 to the High School programs, and are consistent whether a player is in the Intramural, BAYS or Academy Squad programs.
One of the changes this spring is the introduction of Group Practice Night. Some age groups have used these common practice nights in the past and the U9/U10 IM programs trialed these this past Fall with much success. This new format provides coaches and families with a set practice date and time. Group practices will allow the coach and players to work with a New England Revolution Academy coach once a week throughout the season. The practice session curriculum, created by our Technical Director Ross Duncan, is the same for every team and provides a common training for all players. A second more traditional team practice night is set by the individual team coach.
I hope you find this e-newsletter and information on the website informative. Our goal is to limit single threaded emails to the family’s inbox and provide information in the newsletter and on the website to keep us all connected. During the fall and spring season we will provide two or three e-newsletters to the community, in the off seasons we will provide you with informative updates once or twice.
See you on the fields,
Bob Lee, President SYSA
