Hello,

This week marks the beginning of the 2018-2019 Samo Soccer Season!!!  Lots of info to pass on, so let's get started.
  1. Practices:  As mentioned in previous emails and parent meeting in September, practices will now be 2hrs long 2:30-4:30pm.  Please plan accordingly.  The girls have been working hard but the additional time is essential in ensuring that we are fully prepared for the upcoming games.

  2. Locker room overcrowding:  We are very fortunate to have two locker rooms, however, we have close to 60 players.  To alleviate the volume of players changing at the same time, we will be staggering start times.  On Mondays, Tuesday, Thursdays, and Fridays, Varsity and JV will have a practice (non-game days) start time of 2:30pm.  FS will have a start time of 2:40pm.  I ask that the FS team not enter the JV/FS locker room until 2:26pm.  This will allow JV and Var 14 minutes to get to the locker room and get ready for practice. On Wednesdays, Varsity and JV will have a start time of 2:45pm.  FS will have a start time of 2:50pm.  I ask that the FS team not enter the JV/FS locker room until 2:36pm.  This will allow JV and Var 14 minutes to get to the locker room and get ready.
    The FS team was chosen to start 5/10 minutes later as Coach DeCarvalho is an off campus coach and will benefit from a slightly later start time.  Practices will still end at 4:30 for all teams.
    All Players must place/secure all bags in their individual lockers and to vacate the locker room areas as soon as they are done changing.

  3. Kickoff Dinner: As of this morning, only 1/3 of the program has RSVP'd.  I am assuming most will be sending paper and cash/check with daughter on Tuesday.  I ask for you to please take a moment and reply to this email to rsvp, if you havent already done so.  We need an accurate head count asap.  Cash or checks can be turned in to Coach Chapman or Yumori tomorrow.  If paying by check, please make payable to Santa Monica HS.  On the memo line please write girls soccer and include your daughter(s) name(s).  Please note that no payment will be taken at the door...table will only be for check-in.  Please contact Coach Chapman asap with any concerns.

Here is this week's schedule:

  • MON: Veteran's Day - No School/No practice
  • TUES: 2hr practices begin (2:30-4:30).  Please make note of staggered start times.  JV/VAR niforms will be handed out near the end of practice.
  • WED: 2hr practice.  Kickoff Dinner and Auction/Raffle 6-8pm.  This year's captains will be announced at the dinner.  Varsity will be meeting Coach Chapman at the beginning of practice in SG14 (South Gym classroom).  Varsity must change first.  Please bring pencil.  Varsity will be taking Dead Ball quiz -Varsity - make sure you study!!
  • THURS: 2hr practice (2:30-4:30).  FS uniforms given near end of practice.
  • FRI: Var and JV Scrimmage vs Marymount.  Kickoff at 3:30 and 5pm respectively.  FS does not have a game and will not practice.  FS will need 4 players per half (8 total) to be ball runners. They will attend the Varsity game and support.  They may leave at the end of the Varsity game (5pm).  FS is welcome to stay for the second game.

Have a great week and THANK YOU for taking a moment to reply and rsvp now.

Best!

Coach Chapman
