Team info week of 5/31

Hi All,

Hope everyone had a nice Memorial weekend.

Final Roster and Website with schedule

I’m excited to announce we have our final roster.  Our roster is posted on a wordpress site at www.hoplitesfc.org .  I plan to post all games, practices, events, and copies of emails on this site.  So this will be a good reference for all team information.  We can also use this to post photos and other media.

Practice and Uniform fitting

We have practice this week 6/2 Thursday at 6:30 at Hoover followed by our uniform fitting at 8PM.  Def Herbert Hoover, sorry again for the mix up with the fields last week.  Please let me now if you can’t make it Thursday.

Moving forward with practices, I plan to have a full team practice every Thursday at 6:30PM-8PM at Hoover

I want to train half the boys every Monday.  I’m putting together a schedule now, but the idea is, your boy would have a second practice every other Monday.  These will be dynamic, so you may have some consecutive Mondays. These will be very focused training based practices.  They will run from 6:30-7:30 also at Hoover.  These Monday training sessions will  be starting June 6th through to early August. The first two weeks are posted on the site.   In August, we’ll start full team two practices a week to prepare for the Fall season.

Attached is the uniform pricing with the optional bag cost.

Scrimmage confirmed and burgers after at my house

We have our scrimmage with Horsham confirmed for 2PM on 6/11 at Herbert Hoover.  After the scrimmage, my wife and I are inviting everyone back to our house in Penndel for burgers and dogs.  Let me know if you can make it.

Costs (take two)

Attached is the Hulmeville registration form.  This is an annual cost that is paid directly to the club.  The travel costs are $165.  Moving forward, all families will pay $30 per month for 12 months.  These costs will cover our tournaments, Winter and Spring Leagues as well as referee dues and some winter training.  The $30 a month will not include the uniform or the club registration, these will be additional expenses.    I ask each player to commit year to year.  A year cycle will be July 1st to June 30th.   So your first $30 will be due on July 1st.   This will be paid to our team manager who will manage our books.

So the club registration fee is due in June and the uniform payment will most likely be needed shortly after this Thursday.  After these upfront costs. there will only be the $30 a month to Beth , our team manager. We’ll rely on fund raisers for whatever the $30 a month doesn’t cover.

Fund Raiser – Save the date

We have our first fund raiser scheduled for July 24th at Applebees.  It’s a pancake breakfast event.  Beth will have more information to come, but save the date.

All this information can be found on the website.

As always feel free to call ,text, or email me if you have any questions.

Thanks,

Bob
