Solon Soccer Club Updates
SSC Practice Notes for the week of 1/18:
It finally looks and feels like winter in Northeast Ohio.
Just a reminder that while the boys might be off from school Monday and Tuesday, we still have practice. Regardless of weather, assume that we have practice on Tuesday nights. Our biggest expense is our rental fees from the Force and we will have practice every Tuesday unless noted otherwise.
Also, the Force does not cancel games because of weather conditions. Allow extra time to get to the facility and, if you decide not to attend because of weather, please let your team manager know.
With the weather getting colder and driving conditions getting slippery, please use extreme caution when dropping off and picking up your son from practice or games. It seems that as the temperature drops, the boys run faster through the parking lot. Remind your son to look both ways and be cautious in the Force parking lot.
I believe every SSC team that wants to has registered for the OHTSL Indoor Tournament. Please confirm with your team manager if you haven't let them know already.
Thank you to all of our SSC parents who have let us know how much you like having our training coaches attend/coach games and our Red teams. We do this because we want the boys to receive additional coaching (and our coaches too) and so that our training coaches can watch and see how what we're working on in practice translates to games. Thank you Martin, Rob, Len, Nick, PK, Eric and junior training coaches Andrew and Zack.
Also, I know that the younger players love getting the opportunity to play up with older teammates and against better competition. Today I got to coach a U14 Red game with players from our U12 Blue, U13 and U14 team. Win or lose (we won), it's great to watch the boys work together as a team, regardless of age and ability.
Finally, please remember to include your son's name, team and phone number on any soccer equipment (ball, gloves, bag, etc). Also remember that many winter jackets look alike. Try to include your son's name on jackets and other cover ups to make sure they go home with the correct owner after practice.
Thank you! Have a great week and stay warm.
NEW HEADER BAN. PLEASE READ:
Late yesterday a settlement was announced where by headers would be prohibited for soccer players under U10 and would be limited for players U11-U13.
We are still determining how these new mandates will be implemented and what it means for the club. Here is a story from NBC Today Show: http://www.today.com/video/heading-soccer-balls-banned-for-young-players-563377219723
Please note that all SSC coaches have been certified to identify and monitor head injuries per the Ohio Concussion law that went into affect in April 2013. We strongly recommend that all coaches and parents read the attached Concussion guidelines and information provided by the Ohio Department of Health: http://ohtsl.com/procedures/file160.pdf
Also parents please read these guidelines with your son so he knows what to look for too. If coaches (or parents) are concerned about a possible player head injury, the player must see a doctor to be evaluated before they will be allowed to return to play (practice or games).
As we hear more about how the mandate will be implemented, we will forward information to all coaches, players and parents. More to come.
Practices times are the following until we go back outdoors in April.
U10-U11 7-8 pm
U12-U14 8-9 pm
All practices are on Tuesday at the Force Richmond Road Location. As a reminder, the boys should wear their gray jerseys at practice.
The indoor schedule have been finalized on the Force website.

New Player Curriculum and Coaches Manuals
We have many new and exciting additions to the 2014-2015 Solon Soccer Club. In the Summer of 2014, we developed a curriculum for all players and coaching manuals for parent coaches. The curriculum and coaching manual were developed specifically to ensure consistency in training, skills and experience from U8 to U14 players. You can view the Player Curriculum here.
