I’ve accepted the position of Team Manager for my daughter’s select soccer team. I actually performed in this role about 4 years ago and am back at it for the same coach, Eddy Kovarik. Eddy has a great love for the game and his players. He’s great to work with both as a Team Manager and as a Parent. I don’t envy his job… that is trying to keep 18 sets of parents and players happy.
Briana’s team is the Texas Spirit 94 Girls Red team (formerly Texas Spirit 94 Girls White). They were in the Lake Highlands Classic DIII league. We’ll have to qualify again to be in the league at the end of July.
My Team Manager duties will kick in strong this week as we have tryouts. Player contracts, medical releases, uniform purchases, payments, etc. to keep track of. Should be a fun couple of weeks.
I’m excited about the players that are still with us and the new players that are coming on board.
