I have received the U16 Division 4 Champion awards for the team! Great job to all the girls! I will have them at my office for everyone to stop by and pick up. Located directly across the street from the Charles Town Library. Monday-Friday 9-5, just let me know when you want to stop by just in case I have a meeting, I can leave with receptionist. Or send me a text to meet 304.433.7753. All the girls participating in the Summer League, I will bring yours to tonight’s game. Jefferson girls, I will have Shelbie bring them to training tomorrow. If this is not convenient for you, I will make sure Aaron gets the remainder of them and he will be able to distribute. Again, great job girls and good luck to everyone with there High School season that kicks off next week!!
I just wanted to drop a few lines.
I am extremely proud of our girls and the way they ended the season. I couldnt ask for a better group of female athletes, young ladies, and above all, the best team I have ever worked with. I think they learned a lot, they had fun, played competitively, had a lot of memorable times, played like a solid unit, and they appreciated every position on that field. I could not have asked for a better team to coach.
Personal Thanks – I want to give out a personal thanks to the parents/grandparents for what they did and sacrificed throughout the season with transportation and sacrifice to get the girls where they needed to be along with their other children’s needs. I also want to personally thank the Cunninghams for their house for our season party along with the Lapoles’ house for Spag dinner night and all that they did as well as others for the team throughout the season. I could not have asked for a better group of supporting families. I also want to give many thanks to Kimm and Jim for their support and efforts. I definitely could not have done it without them!
And just in case you are wondering what I will be doing in the next 5 months, here is a quick breakdown…
First 2-3 weeks - Getting caught up on yard work and wondering why my nights are so loooong.
Next 4.76 months – Going through a withdraw clinic for coaches, taking out a loan from the bank with all the high school games I will be attending, and working on my juggles.
The final competitions of the season are upon us. The Storm girls will be competing at the Mountaineer Open Cup this Sunday. The schedule has changed a number of times over the last 10 days but I am pretty confident we are good to go with it now. Please click on the link above before you head out on Sunday just to be sure.

Check out the latest post from Jared Montz from the Online Soccer Academy:
Practice is cancelled due to the threat of dangerous storms and potential tornadoes. We don’t want players and families driving in potentially dangerous situations!
Players, work on juggling with your feet (preferably in your basement), it is the simplest way to improve your first touch on the ball!
