Make Your Own Ball Day – Monday, October 2

MYOBD_newlogo_final

Cutters is excited to be participating in our third, “Make Your Own Ball Day” on Monday, October 2. 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.myobd.org)

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.

Bring a Friend Program

The Cutters Soccer Club is excited to announce our “Bring a Friend” Program for the Fall 2017 Community Soccer season. We feel that in Bloomington, soccer is an important part of its identity. We love seeing the game grow in and around the Bloomington area. This program  will allow both the participant and a friend to receive 20% off for the Fall 2017 season.

 

Notes:

 

  • In order to take advantage of this offer, please answer all questions in registration related to this program. You will pay the regular price up front, and then Cutters will provide a refund prior to the conclusion of the season.

 

  • The family being referred must not have previously participated with Cutters to be considered eligible.

 

  • Travel players may refer someone into the Community program, however, the 20% off would be based on the Community rates for their age group. So a travel player would not receive 20% off of the travel fee.

 

  • A family may refer more than one player to take part in this offer, but the 20% off will only be applied to the referring family one time (unless they have multiple children participating).

 

  • If you refer someone after you have already registered, please contact the Cutters office. You will still be eligible to be a part of this program.

 

We hope you take the opportunity to bring someone new into the Cutters family and that they will enjoy the game as much as we do.
