ATTN: HS Soccer Players!
North Andover High School Soccer Players,
We are now preparing for the Fall 2021 GK season and once again, are hoping that you will consider being a GK assistant coach this season. With the start of the upcoming season, this will mark the 13th season in which we have had high school students coaching in the GK program and every season has been a massive success because of all those who have participated.
Being an assistant coach has many benefits:
It’s a great way to give back to the community that supported you.
You can directly impact and encourage the next wave of NASA soccer players.
Volunteering will look great on those college applications.
For those who need to acquire volunteer hours for various reasons, coaching GK soccer checks that box for you.
The greatest benefit of all is the reaction you will get from your players! Just think back when you were playing GK soccer and what it would have meant to have a high school soccer player as one of your coaches. Your players will hang on every word you say and will want to impress you with the soccer skills that you teach them.
This season, GK soccer will be at Sharpner's Pond Field and games will be at either 8:30, 10:30, or 12:30. Games are 60-minutes long and the season is 8-weeks starting on Saturday, September 11th and ending on Saturday, November 6th (No game on October 9th – Columbus Day weekend). Teams will rotate time slots every 3-weeks. As an example, week 1 to 3 would be 8:30, week 4 to 6 would be 10:30, and week 7 and 8 would be 12:30. We know that you all have very busy schedules which is why, when you register, you will have 4-options. They are:
8:30 Time slot every week on the same field.
10:30 Time slot every week on the same field.
11:30 Time slot every week on the same field.
Same team every week with rotating game times in schedule. You would be assigned a specific team and appear on the roster in TeamSnap.
For those who are looking to fulfill community service hours, you can and do have the ability to register for more than one time slot.
We hope you will consider being coach this coming fall season.
