Soccer Info

I hope everyone is getting geared up for an exciting summer.  As well as the HYR Baseball season, we wanted to pass along the following summer news:

1. Soccer Camps with Louisville City FC age 6 - 18

Louisville CIty FC is offering four soccer camps this summer in June, July, and August.  The camps are for diffferent ages, specific skills and skill levels, but if you are interested in gettingyour player some great professional camp experience, click the link below. 

2. Video Production Camps for age 9 - 15 

HYR Director Patrick FItzgerald and HYR Parent Jon-Mark Sandquist are running two video production camps this summer for kids who want to know how to make movies that are worth watching.  The students will learn how to write, record, edit, and publish video and audio productions. The students will use video cameras, microphones, a teleprompter, green screen, iPad with stop motion video, and computers with video editing software.  Students who have participated in one of our video camps before will be put in a separate advanced group.   To sign up or learn more, click the link below:

3. Summer Pickup Soccer Games

Although not officially sponsored by HYR (or technically sponsored at all), the past few summers, a lot of HYR players have joined in some pickup soccer games.  There will be a group organizing games beginning in June, and they will be collecting the initial list of interested parties via a survey monkey link, which I am sharing here now. 

4. Free Soccer Goals

HYR is cleaning out the shed area at Atherton, and we will be giving away some older aluminum frame goals to the first to request them.  Perfect for your back yard.  Some are about 3' high x 5' wide.  Others are about 4' high x 6' wide.  They break down so you do not need to have a truck to move them.  Send a note to Patrick Fitzgerald if interested. 

5. HYR Night at Louisville City FC

We will have another HYR night at the Louisville CIty FC again this summer, probably July 6th or August 11th.  Stay tuned. 

It's a small city/big town, so I hope to run in to many of you this summer in the park, at the pool, paddling a stream, or enjoying a stroll through the neighborhood.

(During registration, players will be given the oportunity to select practice nights they are able to attend.  These and other special requests will be honored when possible.  Be advised that HYR will also attempt to balance teams on skill level when possible, especially in the older divisions.   Team balance may trump player friend requests in some situations.)
