Usually, our spring weeks consist of coaching, playing and watching soccer with little time for much else. Which makes us wonder how our community of youth soccer players and parents are reacting to these changes?
We have witnessed an overwhelmingly positive reaction from the amazing children in our community. People continue to try to connect, safely, as well as finding new and creative ways of sharing messages of positivity in our community. They have inspired me to question, as your Director of Coaching, what am I doing for you?
Where We Stand
We now know for sure that we will not be on the fields with our teammates this season. While this is frustrating, disappointing and even upsetting, I continue to remind myself what being a part of ASC and the wider soccer community is actually all about. What do we love about soccer? We love being a part of a team, putting on our team jerseys, self-improvement, fun and so much more.
How We Respond
ASC supports all of our members and we are committed to creating new opportunities to enjoy playing soccer, learning new skills and connecting with our teammates. I invite you to engage with ASC and your teammates in our “virtual” spring season. We believe that putting on your jersey and getting the soccer balls out will provide an outlet for our members to step away from the new daily pressures and bring us closer together.
What’s Available To You?
- Live Practices: via ASC’s YouTube channel (make sure you subscribe!). These will be offered to all of our players from Grade 1 and above.
- Stay Active Resource Center: located in the Virtual Season section. This resource provides age-appropriate activities which our players can run independently (or maybe they reach out to their teammates and create a schedule to participate ‘together’) which will go a long way to help them improve or even just maintain their technical abilities during this period.
- Skill Challenges: posted on all of our social channels, please follow and connect with us here:
