Welcome to Outdoor 2016

Dear Calgary West SC Players,Coaches and Parents:

Welcome to the Outdoor 2016 season, with Calgary West Soccer Club.
Thank you for choosing Calgary West for your soccer experience. 

We are pleased to announce that our Club has grown yet again; 9% over our Outdoor 2015 registration numbers. We have 50 teams registered with CMSA.

Twenty -one U8 boys decided to play up in U10 but otherwise would have had one of the largest pool of U8 players in the city. 

We will also have 30 teams in our Academy Program, an increase of 5 teams.

To handle the increase in registrations and to ensure that our development programs are delivered with the highest quality, we have reorganized our Technical Team, as well as brought on 2 new Head Coaches.

Senaid Omerovic  and Sergio Medina will be joining our Technical Team. Please visit our website under Head Coaches to view their bios.

Henry Haeusler, our Technical Director will be focusing his work on the Academy Program, ensuring that the academy curriculum delivers long term player development goals. 

Chris McKaig will now be the Director of "Player Development and Player Promotion". He will be in charge of our U8 Play and Train program, our U8 and U10-14 Skills Development program, and our IPT/APT programs.

Juanma will now be the "Director of Teams". He will be responsible for overseeing the direction of all of our teams, including supporting our development teams in U8 and U10 Tier C and U12-18 Tier 4/5. 

Morgan Nkathazos will continue to run academy, IPT and APT sessions.

Jordan Unreimer will continue to be our GK Trainer.

All of our Technical team will be coaching numerous teams as well.

Our Technical Director, Henry Haeusler sent out a message just before the Spring and Easter Breaks, and we hope that everyone enjoyed some family time, and unstructured play time. We hope that players who really missed soccer just got out to play with friends. We firmly believe kids need more unstructured play time in whatever sport they choose/enjoy, with the associated lack of pressure from coaches and parents, to "perform" and just to have fun. Their bodies also need a break from the constant pressure on their joints and ligaments, especially after the hard surfaces of the indoor gyms/fields. 

And, also importantly, our coaches need a break from the pressure of the league, and time with their families to relax. 

That said, we are raring to get going now! 

All of the team rosters are released now. Some changes may still be made before the season starts, and even into the pre-season game schedule. Your coaches will be on contact with their teams within the week, to call a first team practice and/or parent meeting. 

We will be holding a Coach and Team Manager meeting for all Team Officials on Thursday April 14 from 7-9 pm. All teams must attend. In the mean time, Patty, our Fields and Facilities Manager will be in touch to schedule your team for team practices. Greg, our Equipment Manager will be in touch to let teams know when their equipment can be picked up. And Janice, our new Uniform Manager will be in touch in regards to uniforms.

We sent out information for parents, coaches and players in regards to the CMSA League Structure and CMSA Program Calendar to help you under stand how the league is structured by CMSA (not, not by CWSC), and the important dates for pre season, season and post-season play; our Welcome to Calgary West - Our Development Approach, for you to please read through in entirety, to understand our focus on education and development.   We ask that all players and parents and coache please review the document, including expectations of Parents, the role of the Coach, and the Code of Conduct for players, Please then print a Player Code of Conduct form, and bring to your coach, signed. 

Coaches and Team Managers were sent a Coach and Team Manager Information Package.  This Package will provide all of the information you need to run a smooth outdoor season, and where you can access support from the Club. We will run through this information at the Coach/Team Manager meeting on April 14th.

Coaches, you are also required to attend a mandatory Coach Education Clinic. U10-U18 coaches must attend on Sat April 15 from 3:00-7:00 pm. U8 coaches may pick one of Friday April 15 from 8 10 pm, or Saturday April 16 from 9-11 am.

Our Pre-season Athlete Factory sports conditioning sessions started this past weekend, and we sent out an information sheet about the Academy program. All players on Academy teams should now pay their Academy fees.

Thank you and have a great start to the season!
CWSC

 

Important Announcement - Congratulations to Hayes Wittrock

Calgary West “United” U18 player, Hayes Wittrock, has recently secured a scholarship to a top US College. Hayes will be departing for Columbia, Missouri this august where he will become a part of the Columbia College Cougars Soccer Program. Columbia were NAIA (The National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics) national tournament quarter finalists as well as wining the American Midwest Conference regular season, going undefeated and compiling a 19-4 season record.

Columbia have secured Hayes’ services with the ambition of going on to win a national title this coming fall season.

Hayes was able to secure over an impressive $80,000 US Dollars of scholarship that will cover his entire tuition costs to attend Columbia.

This was made possible through a relationship developed by United Coach Chris Mckaig and Danny McBride at Athletes USA. Danny is a Dundee, Scotland native, a former US college coach and is now an agent and scout for Athletes USA.  He and Coach Mckaig played together in Scotland, and this past summer Danny was able to attend our Dundee United Soccer Camp.  

Athletes USA, is the world’s leading sports scholarship consultancy group that has helped over 3,000 athletes be placed at elite US colleges. They have brought athletes over 100 million dollars of athletic scholarship in their short existence as a company and are now delighted to be helping players from Canada fulfill their ambitions of being able to go to the US to pursue a University education while playing soccer at the highest level.

Congratulations from all of us in Calgary West. We are excited for Hayes, and are proud of his achievements. We are grateful for the support of Danny McBride who has seen the quality of players developed in Calgary West. He is eager to support more opportunities for our players. Finally, credit Chris Mckaig, who dedicates a huge part of his life to supporting the development of our players. His networks in the States is invaluable for future opportunities for Calgary West players - girls and boys.

Go Green! Go Hayes!
