Team 3 Game Tomorrow 9/21 - UPDATE
by posted 09/20/2019

Hey Players and Parents, 

We received a heads-up communication from the Somerville coach...

"We're looking forward to seeing you all tomorrow afternoon at Argenziano School in Somerville. A couple of quick notes. Traffic right now in Somerville is really bad due to two bridges and an underpass being under construction. Union Square, which is right next to the Argenziano is very affected, so please notify your families about taking extra time to get there. We're asking Somerville parents to park in the neighborhood around the park to allow out of town families to park in the school lot, which is on Washington Street. However, it's a pretty small lot, so feel free to also park in the surrounding area. The league is working with the city to have a reprieve from tagging cars with tickets during soccer games. If you do end up getting one, please let us know and the league will help sort it out.

Also, tomorrow afternoon 3-7 pm in Union Square is Somerville's annual Fluff Festival. They will be closing off traffic in the square for the festival and I imagine that will start either before or during our game. People might want to get creative and leave some cars at the Target parking lot and carpool or walk over. Otherwise, you may have some luck going through a different part of Cambridge or Somerville to approach the school from Charlestown. (Shameless plug -- for the uninitiated, the Fluff Festival is usually a lot of fun, especially with kids.)"

Given the above news, please plan accordingly.
 
Thanks for your support!

Team 3 Practice 9/19
by posted 09/18/2019

Hey Players and Parents, 

I hope everyone is having a great week. 

We are laser-focused this week on preparing for our game on Saturday against Somerville (so far one of the top-scoring teams in the league). Last night we discussed a defensive strategy and practiced containing offensive players. Remember, we want to 'soccer surf' and guide our opponents to the outside of the field with our bodies. We DO NOT want to commit ourselves by stepping into the offensive player and making it easy for them to get around us.  Here's a good video to reinforce the message.

I also want to let you know that I, Ben and Ewan will likely not be at practice on Thursday, so Coach Jess will be on her own. While I do believe there are a couple parents that are willing to help out, please listen to Coach Jess, be respectful and do what she says. She has a great practice plan that will build off our defensive and shooting themes this week, so please cooperative.  

Oh yeah...HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO GABBY!!

I'll send out another reminder email about the game later this week. 

Thanks for your support. 

Coaches Mahlon, Jess, Ewan & Ben

Extra Uniform Needed - Team 3
by posted 09/14/2019

Hey Parents,

Our newest player has a uniform on the way, but will not be here in time for the game today. I know some of you have old uniforms and/or sibling uniforms. If you do have an extra, would you mind bringing it to the game. I think we’re good for shorts and sox, but need help on the jersey. We have a couple solutions of this doesn’t pan out, so no worries. 

Please PM me if you can help. 

Thanks,

Coach Mahlon

Team 3 Game Day!!
by posted 09/14/2019

Hey Players and Parents, 

We hope everyone had a great week and are feeling rested for our game today! We had great practices this week and should be ready to face Melrose. 

The game will be held at Pine Parks in Melrose (30 Sylvan St) at 1:30. Per usual, please plan to be there 30 minutes before the game for proper warmups. 

PLEASE MAKE NOTE:

It's important that for every game we provide snacks for the half-time and treats at the end are always appreciated. The girls can lose steam come the second half. Last week the Bandas stepped up - Thank You!! This week the Cronins are stepping up - Thank You!! 

Below is a shared doc sign up sheet for snacks through the rest of the season. We would appreciate it if everyone took a week. I'll remind whomever's turn it is each week in the weekly email.
