FALL SEASON 2019 TEAM TIME
Matt (Peabody Orcas 09B White) and Tony and I (4th - Peabody Orcas Boys) took our teams down there on April 20th for a scrimmage. Tony refereed but basically we just let the kids play. All the players had a wonderful time and it really reinforced for me how valuable it is to have the kids play soccer just for the love of playing. It seems that too many of the kids in the city are only playing during adult-led practices or in adult-coached games.
SFYS is excited to continue to offer team playing opportunities, at Paul Goode Field.
The clinics were introduced in 2016 to provide additional practice and play opportunities for team coaches and players that want to play even more. Most teams practice once, some twice.
In addition to the clinics, this is additional for teams to enjoy more time together and more time with the ball. All teams from SFYS Recreational and SF Upper House are invited to join us on a date / time that suits their schedule.
The space is free and is part of #PlaySFYS
How it works - Teams select and register for their preferred date(s) and time(s).
The field - There is space for 4 teams per hour at Paul Goode
and any SFYS league team can use it. If the field is open for 2
hours, you may use it for 2 hours!
Why - Play is important for players to love, experience, and enjoy the game of Soccer. The space that SFYS has made available is addressing that for the players.
Questions should be directed to Lee Dunne, SFYS Director of Programming.
