Referee Clinic: Monday, August 25th from 6:30-8:30 at the Marsh Grammar School – Auditorium

You will be invited to ask questions, if you would like further explanations of rules or the proper steps on how to work with the referees.

Coaches of Methuen Youth Soccer,

Welcome to the Fall 2014 season! Thank you for volunteering your time and energy to the great kids of Methuen.

With the season set to begin in just a couple of weeks, the Board of Directors are preparing for Opening Weekend which is September 6th and 7th. There are plenty of details to cover with the coaches such as schedules, solid communication to your teams, codes of conduct for both parents and coaches, and referee relationships.

We also want to keep you updated and informed about our upcoming Coach Clinic Opportunities as well as our Referee Clinic, so that you don’t miss out on these events.

Coach Clinics/Fall Season Orientation: 2 dates to choose from, please select one, both are held at the CGS from 6-9.
Friday, August 22nd or Tuesday, August 26th

More information on the Coach Clinics can be found in the attached “CoachClinic” document. You are welcome to lock into a date via email to myself (devdirector@methuensoccer.org) and the league Secretary (secretary@methuensoccer.org). Kindly include your age division when responding.*

Thank you for your participation and involvement. Without coaches, the league would not be able to run. We are looking forward to a great season ahead.

*Please schedule your Coach clinic at your earliest opportunity as classes will have full capacity within each one. If you need a new coach shirt, please let me know what size, as well.

Thank you,
Cheri Thunstrom
