Brendan's high school soccer career officially kicks off this Saturday! He's been training with the team all summer and has played in a handful of scrimmages, but Saturday morning is their first official game. In true youth sports fashion, they got their uniforms 15 minutes before the team photos were taken this week. The OCD side of me wants to just barge in and take over all of the organizations the boys are involved in.
So, that brings us to the schedule! I think I posted a soccer schedule a couple of months ago. Ignore that. Some things have changed since then, and I honestly don't have the time, energy, or attention span to go back and compare it line-by-line, so I'm going to just post an updated one . . . eventually. In the meantime, I'll try to get back to posting weekly updates so that everyone who wants to come see him play can do so.
Saturday, August 21 - 10:00 am. - away @ University School. 2785 SOM Center Rd., Chagrin Falls, OH 44022.
Tuesday, August 25, 2015 - 5:00 p.m. - away @ Brunswick. 3581 Center Rd., Brunswick, OH 44212-3695 (I think this is the address for the football stadium, which might also double as the soccer stadium. If you're planning to attend check in with us on the day of and we'll try to steer you in the right direction).
Thursday, August 27, 2015 - 5:30 p.m. - @ home vs. Copley! The calendar says "back field," which I think means the practice fields behind the high school.
Saturday, August 29, 2015 - 4:00 p.m - away @ Anthony Wayne 6035 Finzel Rd, Whitehouse, OH 43571. Unless there are multiple Anthony Wayne high schools in Ohio, this one is way, way the heck out in the middle of nowhere, past Toledo. Also, that address is based on a highly scientific review of a google earth image of a soccer field behind the high school. Since both of our JV teams are scheduled to play at the same time, we might be on a different field . . . somewhere else? Again, for anyone who is really into road trips, plan ahead and call us for details as the date approaches.
What else is going on, you ask? Oh, not much, just the beginning of hockey season. The pre-season "mini camp" is going on this week (Nate has practice Saturday morning right after we get back from Bren's game up in Cleveland). Tryouts are next week, and practices will start shortly thereafter. Last year the first game of the season was November 1. I imagine this year will be about the same. Also, the kids went back to school this week. So far, things are going well.
