At the coaches clinic we ran for the Memphis City Schools we offered to come out to practice and help these teams out as well. Raleigh-Egypt, Snowden, and Cordova have already taken us up on that offer. Last Thursday we ran a session on Ball Control and passing technique as well as the brazilian warmup for Raleigh-Egypt. On Friday we ran a session on Ball Control technique and Defending technique for Snowden. These sessions went great and we will be working with Cordova tomorrow (tuesday the 22nd).

We have exciting news for everyone...futsal will continue until the end of March!
The players seemed to have a great time playing with each other Sunday playing “pelada” style and we have had many requests to keep Futsal going. So, we had a meeting with the church this morning and decided to offer a weekly "pelada" to satisfy the need and continue to improve the players. A "pelada" is the Brazilian word for a pick up game and is also to help educate the meaning of this word as April 1st we will be bringing the Pelada Movie to the Avenue at Carriage Crossing. This will be free of charge to everyone and shown outdoors on the wall at the grassy area next to Soccer USA. Also, we will be playing 5v5 at the mall "pelada" style after the viewing.
- Dates 2/20, 2/27, 3/13, 3/20
- 2:00 - 3:30pm will be U10-U12/13
- 3:30 - 5:00pm will be U13/14 and up
- games start this sunday (2/20)
- $10 for the first time playing (so we can get insurance for the players)
- players or parents will need to fill out a waiver the first time playing as well
- $5 per game for every game players play after that
- these games will be coed

April 8-10th the tournament that started it all returns to Mike Rose Soccer Complex. This is the only tournament we know of it's kind. We include (organize and register) our local international kids that play in their own leagues on rundown fields throughout the city. The fact that these kids never play with the mainstream club kids hurts both groups. Through competition we not only hope to breakdown barriers and bring everyone together, we hope to improve US Soccer as a whole.
