TEAM NEWS & ANNOUNCEMENTS

Welcome to the Lonestars 01G White STH Team Page

 

Team News & Notes:  

 

If you missed the team meeting, here are some notes (Thank you, Brett):

 

Team Level
At our age group, teams do not get to choose which level they play at in the Fall.  This is determined by the results of the previous Fall season.  So, since we finished in 1st place in S2 in the fall, there is a high probability that we will play in D1 next fall.  This isn't 100% because it is dependent on a spot in D1 opening up, and the rules around this are constantly changing.  I'm not sure we asked this, but I doubt we'll know until sometime during the summer.
 
Player Level
Sometimes, players will move between teams and levels because the coaches and the club feel that it is the best developmental move for the player.  Sometimes, this is based on a need on a higher level team that the club feels can be filled by a player at a lower level, but they must also feel that this player at the lower level would succeed at the higher level.  Coaches will sometimes invite players to train with different teams to see how they do at various levels.  There is an upcoming POE in which the club will evaluate the players and try and determine what the best fit is.
 
Playing Time
At the S2 level, there is a requirement that all players play at least 50% of the game.  Kelsey will continue to honor this rule this spring in Presidents Cup.  Next fall, if we move up to D1, there is no player time requirement.  Kelsey's personal philosophy is that while she can't guarantee that every player will get 50% playing time, she will make her best effort to ensure that all players that are prepared (e.g. train regularly) get a significant amount of playing time.  If a player plays less in a particular game for whatever reason, she will try to make that up in a later game and have that player play more at some point.  Not all coaches share this philosophy, though.
 
Will Kelsey be our coach next year?
That's not been decided yet and it's not up to Kelsey.  Historically, the club will try to keep a coach with a team for 2 year cycles or more, but that's no guarantee that it will be the case for us.
 
Golf Tournament
Kelsey expressed her appreciation that we are one of the teams sponsoring her to play in the Murray Hanson Lonestar Classic.  I'll let you guys know in the next few days when it's time to pay up.  I'll do PayPal if that works for everyone.  Should be in the neighborhood of $10/player.

RAINOUT AND RESCHEDULES
 
The coaches and managers are busy rescheduling the games that have been rained out due to in climate weather.  Please note that because of the back log of games, and the tightness of the schedule, there will be conflicts despite the best attempts to minimize these events.  We will try to make them minimal, but can't guarantee it.  We will let you know as soon as we get information. 
 
PARENT MEETING DATES 
 
All of the teams will have parent meetings with their coaches on the following dates: 
April 14 

May 19 
 

PLAYER OPPORTUNITY EVENT DATE (POE) 
 
We have scheduled another POE date for May 17, 2015.  This may change as this is a rain-out date for cup play, but that date is currently set.  Please make plans on your schedules.

Spring Season ScheduleHere's a link to our schedule
 
Highlights for the Spring Season:
We have prequalified for President's Cup this Spring.  If you remember from the past, the Spring is 'Cup play'.  So instead of playing in a S2 or D1 level of play for our regular season games, we will play in President's Cup.  The link can be found here:  http://www.stxsoccer.org/docs/Competitions/State/2015%20Western%20District%20Cup%20PreQual%20List.pdf
