Directors Update | March 25

We trust all is well and everyone is staying healthy.  We just wanted to pass along some updates and information.  You should have received this from your team coach and/or manager, but in case you missed it! 


  

Updates:

  • As you all know, FYSA announced that suspension we are suspended from play until April 12th.  
  • That remains in place, and we will continue to communicate with you on updates throughout this process.
  • We will rely on expert public health advice from organizations like the CDC, NIH and WHO in making this decision on when we are cleared to play.


Free Health Call In-Line:

  • Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital & Memorial Healthcare System has offered Parkland Soccer Players FREE virtual appointments via the MemorialDocNow app in an effort to provide healthcare services to the community during this time.  


On-Line Resources:

  • In the meantime, as we are all adjusting to virtual school, working from home, and getting the kids on a routine, we are providing you with videos, written workouts, assignments, and other information that the players can use to keep up to date with their soccer workouts and learning.  
  • The information is all available at the www.parklandtravelsoccer.com website.    You can click on the box labeled, “Skills”, for example and watch skill moves that your player can work on.
  • The weekly Assignments and Workouts are downloadable in .pdf.   We will continue to update on a weekly basis.  Some coaches may also have assigned different projects for their players as well.  


Consistent Routine:
