Winter Travel Indoor League: 11U-14U Rosters/Schedule

We are excited to get the Winter Indoor League started on Saturday, December 3rd for the 11U/12U and 13U/14U groups. Our staff spent a lot of time trying to organize as competitively balanced of teams as we possibly could, while also trying to honor teammate requests. We hope the kids are looking forward to this opportunity. It’s a great time for the kids to just play, meet new teammates, and have fun. This league has been great for our club culture since we started it about 5 years ago. I am posting links below for the full season schedule and the rosters for each group. We do not anticipate making any changes at this point, though there is the potential to add a few extra players to each league.

As of now all rosters have no more than 7 players. This is great in terms of playing time, but also makes it important that everyone attends as much as possible. Please contact Tommy Berry or Michael Nosofsky with as much notice as you can when your child will be missing a game. Additionally, be sure to note the game times. We are not leaving very much room in between games so please get there on time so that we can transition from one game to the next seamlessly. We will be handing out shirts the first day so try to arrive a little bit earlier so we can take care of that prior to the game starting. Thanks so much. We look forward to seeing you all on Saturday.

The team fees vary, depending on the age and the number of tournaments, but generally range from $100 to $200, but can be higher for a team that participates in several tournaments. The best way to determine this cost is to speak with the team managers for your age group and ask them what they anticipate for the coming year.

Make Your Own Ball Day – Monday, September 21

MYOBD_newlogo_final

Cutters is excited to be participating in our very first, “Make Your Own Ball Day” on Monday, September 21. We are looking forward to having all of our U8 Community and Jr. Cutter Travel players involved in such a great event. Please see event information below:

The mission of Make Your Own Ball Day is to use a ball to help kids create, connect, give, appreciate, and play.  MYOBD promotes and supports the passions of kids for sport and uses soccer as a platform for change. We envision a world where every kid—regardless of living conditions—has the tools and power to play.

“Our goal in MYOBD is to teach not only the love of the game and the skills and fundamentals needed to play it, but also bigger life lessons like character, leadership and service. This day was created to get us to stop for a second and think about how lucky we are and to make us realize that the world does not revolve around us.” ­ Mark Spiegel (Make Your Own Ball Day founder)

Make Your Own Ball Day.

The day will revolve around the home­made soccer balls made by each of our players. We will still play soccer but we will see the game from a new, unique and humbling perspective. We will go barefoot and play with the imperfect and misshapen soccer balls that we create.

The day originates out of a desire to show our players how lucky we are to have the things we have as well as to broaden their understanding of the game and themselves. The day is more than just fun and craziness. The day is put on for us to take a second and recognized how fortunate we are and how important it is to help/serve others. A ball can change lives and it can open a conversation about hardship, perspective and gratitude! (www.makeyourownballday.com  )

Make A Ball.

There are a million ways to make a ball. You can use any material you want and make it as big or as small as you want. Make your ball prior to showing up to the event! The coaches will be making their own and we will try to have extras but PLEASE take this unique opportunity to make a ball with your player and talk about why we are doing this! It is our hope that players will show up to the event with their ball already made! (watching the videos first will help with this process)

Give A Ball.

We want this day to impact not only our players and families, but to reach out into our community and beyond to help where we can! So we are also inviting you to donate a new or lightly ­used soccer ball. We will work with the MYOBD crew to make sure this donated ball finds its way to the foot of a kid in a community where money, circumstances and life has not allowed him/her to have one before. As a club we are hoping to donate as many soccer balls as possible and join in this movement by giving to our global soccer community. So…Make a ball // Give a ball.

Schedule:

  • 6:00 to 6:45 – 4v4 games.
  • 6:45 – Speech about giving // soccer is just a game.
  • 7:00 – Group picture // video of players throwing balls in the air!

Videos:

Check out these videos and please share them with your players.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

August 6, 2013
Bloomington, Indiana—Cutters Soccer Club is pleased to announce that it has reached an agreement to partner with Meulensteen Academy.

SportpartnersNL (Netherlands) and Meulensteen Academy (MA) have earned a European-wide, sterling reputation for offering reliable and high quality soccer training services throughout their 14 years of conducting business. Cutters SC is now proud to offer the same expertise to the US market via this partnership with SportpartnersUSA and Meulensteen Academy. The Meulensteen Academy organization presents professional expertise of people working in soccer coaching as well as soccer education.

This partnership allows the Cutters Soccer Club to offer training in the Meulensteen Academy methods, philosophy, and instruction programs. Specifically, Cutters SC will offer the “Moves and Skills” Player Development Curriculum developed by Coach Rene Meulensteen, current Head Coach at Anzhi Makhachkala SC, Russia and long time First Team Coach of Manchester United (2008-2013).

Rene Meulensteen, commonly regarded as one of the best soccer trainers in the world, developed the “Moves & Skills” method to improve the skills of the modern soccer player at any level. The program’s goal is the development of creative, unpredictable, confident, and motivated players. At the center of the “Moves & Skills” method is the ability of a player to master the challenge of various 1v1 situations. (more…)

Jr Cutters U9/U10

U9-U10 Jr Cutters – Jr Cutters is the introduction to travel soccer program intended to transition the club’s youngest players from recreation to the more advanced format of travel soccer.   Jr Cutters is a two year program and all players interested  are accepted as space allows and is intended to be an inclusive program.  One of the goals of the Jr Cutters is to bring similarly interested players together to receive age appropriate training and development overseen by the club’s travel coaching staff.   The program is intended to be FUN and build a passion for the sport of soccer. Skill building and ball control will be a high priority and each player will be encouraged to take risks, solve problems and given the freedom to be creative on the soccer field.

Practice will occur two times per week from August to October in the fall.  In the spring practice will begin following spring break in March and conclude approximately at the end of May.  Optional winter training (Nov-March) at Bloomington United Soccer School (busoccer.com) with Cutters’ Director of Coaching (Tom Berry) is strongly encouraged but not mandatory and is a separate fee from the Cutters Soccer Club tuition.

The Jr. Cutters will participate in the ISL Academy League.  League results are not recorded and are not the objective of the program.  Games are typically played on Saturdays at Karst Farm Park, or at another club within approximately a 70 mile radius of Bloomington.  The league is formatted to play double headers on each game weekend to minimize travel at this age.  Families should anticipate 4-5 Saturdays of participation throughout each season.

Cutters Travel U11-U14

U11-U14 Cutters Soccer Club – Club soccer is a one year commitment (two seasons, fall & spring). The Fall season begins early/mid August and typically lasts mid to late October or early November.  The Spring season begins the week following the MCCSC spring break and lasts until approximately early June.  Practices are held 2 times per week during both fall and spring seasons and games are most commonly played on weekends. Occasionally, games may be played on weeknights and are usually reschedules from rainouts.  U11-U14 teams typically participate in the ISL, C.I.Y.S.L. or G.I.R.L.S. leagues.

Most of the Cutters travel teams will compete in one to three tournaments during each season. The individual coaches, based on their desire to seek appropriate competition for the individual team, select the tournament(s) with guidance from the Director of Coaching. Tournaments are most often in-state competitions, but sometimes travel outside the state of Indiana is necessary and beneficial to the team’s development.

If your child is invited to join a Cutters Soccer Club travel team and agrees to play, they are accepting a commitment to the club for one year (2 seasons, fall and spring for U9-U14). 100% commitment is required to your fellow teammates and coaches. Players are expected to make a strong effort to attend all practices and games.  It is expected that any conflicts will be communicated with your coaches and managers well in advance so that the impact on the team (e.g., playing with fewer players, being forced to forfeit, etc.) can be minimized and alternative solutions (i.e. club passing) can be explored. Excessive absences may be reflected in reduced playing time or future team placement.  Cutters Soccer Club obviously understands absences due to family/school commitments or sickness/injury.  However, it’s essential that you communicate problems/conflicts to your coach as far in advance as possible.  If a player is not able to make this commitment it is not recommended that he/she accept a roster invitation.

Cutters Senior Teams U15-U18

U15-U18 Cutters Soccer Club  – These age groups only play for the club during the spring season since the players most often compete for their high school teams in the fall.   Practices may begin as early as November at the conclusion of the high school season.  Some teams may even participate in a November tournament.  Typically, teams will train once per week from Nov to March at Bloomington United Soccer School or the Bloomington Sportsplex.  Outdoor practice will begin as soon as the weather permits (normally the week following the MCCSC spring break in March).  Practices are held 2-3 times per week during the spring and games are played on weekends.  The Cutters U15-U18 teams most often compete in the Indiana Soccer League, Midwest Regional League, or C.I.Y.S.L/G.I.R.L.S. league.  Many of the teams (U15-U18) will compete in the Indiana State or Challenge Cup tournament competitions.  In addition, all travel teams may compete in one to three tournaments during the spring season and attend college showcases when appropriate.  The individual coaches, based on their desire to seek appropriate competition for the individual team, select the tournament with guidance from the Director of Coaching.   Travel outside the state of Indiana is sometimes necessary and beneficial for the team’s development.

Team members are expected to give 100% commitment to fellow teammates and coaches.  Players are expected to attend all practices and games unless otherwise communicated to the coach well in advance.  This is necessary so that the impact on the team (e.g., playing with fewer players, being forced to forfeit, etc.) can be avoided and alternative solutions (i.e. club passing) can be explored.  Excessive absences may be reflected in reduced playing time or future team placement.  Cutters Soccer Club obviously understands absences due to family or school commitments or sickness.  If a player is not willing or able to make this commitment it is not recommended that he/she accept a roster invitation.

All High School age teams are unfortunately subject to the Indiana High School Athletic Association’s 6 player rule.  The rule states that no more than 6 players from the same high school soccer team can participate on a club soccer team.  Non compliance of the rule may prevent player(s) from being eligible to compete for their high school team.  Cutters Soccer Club follows this rule very closely so our players are not ineligible to compete for their high school soccer team.  This rule creates an obvious challenge for Bloomington with two primary high schools (North and South) accounting for the majority of the club’s players.  The Cutters Soccer Club is very receptive and encourages players from nearby communities to attend player placement and via for roster spots.
