Thunderbolts Win!

Woo hoo! That was some amazing soccer this Saturday. It was incredible to watch everything we've been working toward come together.

Every single player on the team made this win happen. We played with confidence, intelligence, and tenacity.

I would also like to thank Kaya for organizing the shoot-around on Friday. I wish I could have been there but it sounds like everyone had a great time. I definitely think it had something to do with our win.

Very nice! Have a good week and we'll see you on Saturday for another great game!

The Final Countdown

Hey Thunderbolts!

I just looked at our calendar again and we've only got two more games. There was a game scheduled for the 21st but it was taken off by the league. It seems like just yesterday that we were starting practices. You should all be proud of how far you have come.

One sad fact is that this is our last season as Thunderbolts. I mean, I know you'll always be Thunderbolts in your hearts. I know that Caitlyn shouting, "When we rock we rock like THUNDER!" still echoes in my head. Like right now... seriously, I can still hear it. But this will be the last season we play together officially as Thunderbolts.

It has been a privilege to be your coach. I have learned so much about soccer and about life by practicing with you at Garden Home Park in the Fall. I'd like to thank each and every one of you for that. I'd like to thank your parents for raising such wonderful and talented young women and showing up every Saturday to cheer them on. And finally, I would like to thank Mike Gourlay, Mary Collins, and Jimmy Patten for all the great advice and amazing coaching you have shared throughout the years.

BUT! We still have two games left! Let's make the most of them!

PS— I still need volunteers to head up the end of season party and trophies. Kim Parsons sent an email about charms but I never saw any one respond. Please email me and let me know if you can help.

Amazing practice tonight!

Wind, rain and cold combined with amazing attitudes made tonight's Thunderbolts practice one of the best ever.

Friday, October 2, 2009

Picture day is October 10th! We're scheduled for 12 noon so we should probably get there around 11:30 to line up and get our paper work all ready.

Practice - Tuesday August, 18th

We had a few less players tonight but we had some new things. Caitlin Henderson rejoined the team and brought with her the ear-shattering, kindergartner-terrorizing,Thunderbolt Cheer. We also learned the new PEP warm up ( It was grueling and awkward at times but I have faith we will run it like clockwork in a few weeks.
