Greetings Sparks Soccer Families,
I hope you are all enjoying the first month of the Brea Soccer Sparks Soccer Program. Please read the entire email as there is important information throughout!
As you can tell by now this is a different league than most. There are a few driving principals that guide us. Some are by nature of who we are and some are intentional for what is best for player development.
As you read through these bullet points you can get an idea of why we structure Sparks the way we do. We have experts in the field of player development guiding this program and over the past 7 years the results of the players who have graduated from this program are evidence of our successful model.
OK, now on to a few helpful items.
Snacks on game day. We want the kids to get snacks every Saturday after the games. Going forward here is how this is going to work. Every Monday, a Coach from Sparks staff will take a sign up sheet around to all you families. We need 6 families to bring snacks every Saturday - 3 at the 9:30 hour and 3 at the 10:30 hour. When you bring the snacks you will leave them at the check-in table between the first two fields. After the games the players will come over and get a snack. A "Snack" consists of a packaged drink and food item (something healthy is preferred - the best drink would be chocolate milk - i know it sounds weird but that is the best after game drink for players. Good food items would be granola bars, crackers, etc. Try to stay away from chips and candy - I know its easier and cheaper but not the best choice for young athletes).
Thank you for your time and we look forward to seeing you on the field this week!
