WHO: ALL boys interested in playing on one of the three MSHS soccer teams (Varsity, JV, C-Team) this spring
WHAT: Workouts and Kickarounds
WHEN/WHERE Workouts: Tuesdays and Thursdays 2:35pm to 3:35pm (weight room)
WHEN/WHERE Kickarounds: Fridays 6:30am to 7:30am (gym)
Workouts will be posted in the weight room and boys will be working in small groups; workout emphasis will concentrate on building strength AND endurance for the coming season. Plan on some fitness assessments during these sessions to measure athlete strength and fitness levels.
The gym has been booked so we can have indoor soccer sessions on Fridays (6:30 to 7:30 am). This is a chance to have some fun playing indoor and connect again with coaches, and new and old teammates.
All of these activities are optional but encouraged.
I’ve created a Remind group which you can join. This will be how we communicate in the pre-season.
Outdoor kickarounds led by senior players will commence at the start of next month. We will hold our official ‘preseason’ meeting in January and I have been busy watching your club games and planning for the season.
Please email if you have a game you would like some of the coaches to watch, some of you have done this already. It is always hard to reach out to freshmen soccer players preseason so if you know of one then send this message on and have them stop by room 2208 if they have questions.
Thanks everyone, see you soon.

One Freshman goal, one more Senior, and more importantly: one more win!
What another night! We talked before the game about how records shouldn't define a season and how tonight was all about making good memories for each other by working hard and getting rewarded. We came out a little flat but still created good chances and looked to be coping with Issaquah's game plan. We made some adjustments in the second half getting Paul Talens a little more advanced and working with Zach. Our forwards rotated in and did us proud: Dom, Patrick, Kevin, Noah, and Ellisio worked hard up there and really hurried the Issaquah D. Our backline was assured well marshalled again by Cade and Charlie who has been our most consistent player this season along with Evan who continues to win 40-60 balls and make good decisions on when to move up the field and when to sit in with the back four: he has been a real asset both defensively and going forward. John Winder was solid and with Ben helped shut down Issaquah's most dangerous player.
The game went back and forth but I thought we were in control and really forced the game in the last fifteen minutes and went into OT the better team. Joey and Erik both worked tirelessly and set up our game: we have (I have) talked constantly about earning the right to play and playing the right way and I think regardless of records we have seen more of that in the last half of the season and found our identity. The more time the team has spent with each other as rules relaxed a little, then the more they have communicated as a team and that has also been a change I've noticed in the last two weeks. So credit to our seniors for battling away one more time; we got to see Ryan out there one last time and in twenty years we'll still be talking about him: what an attitude, work ethic and improvement we've seen with him these last five weeks help gel the team together and go from a goalie to an outfield player.
Overtime and Noah wins the freekick at the edge of the area, a great freekick from Zach who with Ryan is our hardest worker in practice; he wants to win every drill in every practice: that's why he is scoring game winners against the league leaders; he is super talented but works every day to get better. We're better with him on the ball and it bodes well for the future with our returning underclassmen.
Credit goes to all the defenders and our wonderful goalies Colby and Jaeden who gave our back line the confidence to earn their first clean sheet (shut out). They’ve both been amazing these last four years and have worked tirelessly to help build this program.
So it was another night to say thank you to our seniors (plus one). Paul has been desperate to play soccer again and I was so pleased to see him out there again playing in front of his family and with his friends. He showed what an athlete he is ( I think he did a half marathon out there) but also what an unselfish and skillful soccer player he is and was out there leading others and encouraging others. Seeing Sully and Co. at the end walking around and soaking it in one last time was bitter sweet for me: I loved just watching the reaction after the goal and at full time : it was special: some more good memories made.
Thanks to all the supporters, the booster team, Jonathan Perlstein, Curt Carlson, and other community members that make our home games so memorable and exciting. Thanks to the parents for supporting your players and the team through this strange but memorable season, see you next Wednesday.
