Cutters Community Soccer Week 6 — June 2

Hello everyone!

Monday, June 2 is our last practice night of the season. All age groups will focus on goal scoring. The Cutters travel program coaches will be at practice as well, to work with the players and to answer questions about our travel program.

In addition, we are offering a summer program on Monday nights for Community Soccer players. The best way to describe it is “organized pick up games.” We will help the players get organized by age group and then let them play. The club will provide trainers to monitor the activity, but the players will make the big decisions during the games. Registration for this program is required. Visit http://cutterssoccer.org/news/summer-community-soccer-registration for more information and to register.

Below are the practice plans for Monday:

Thank you for a wonderful season! We look forward to seeing you again this summer and in the fall. The fall season is slated to begin in early September.

Remember, although we will have games on Saturday, May 24, we will not have practice on Memorial Day, May 26. Our last Monday night practice is scheduled for Monday, June 2.
