Hot Weekend for FC Storm (literally)!

… unfiltered comments from the president’s desk about our Club and soccer in general …

Turnaments play an important role in the rythym of play of our teams.  Ideally, it is an opportunity to play teams outside the league.

We are deliberate about the tournaments we send teams to.  We pick ones that are well-run (and have good parking) with a good reputation of creating fair brackets of teams with similar skills.  Ideally, giving each team an opportunity to win.  Our goal is to put teams in divisions of the tournament where they will be competitive.  My view is that it’s better to win 2 and lose 1 than have 3 teams that are easy to beat.  Unfortunately, some teams or clubs see tournament as an easy chance to collect a trophy by applying to lower division than they should be in.  The result of pretty lobsided scores.  We’ve seen 20-1 and 12-0 scoresl out teams on the losing end.  Our teams didn’t have any fun playing retreive the ball from the goal and the other team certainly didn’t get anything useful out of the game.

Congrats to the boys U11 Orange team on winning the Gold division at Party on the Pitch this past weekend! The boys were promised that they could dose the coach if they won their first tourney of the year – looks like fun, and a great way to beat the heat. Great job boys!!

Congrats also to our Finalists at POTP…
The Boys U10 White team lost a close finals game 1-2 in the Bronze division, and
our Girls U11 Orange were finalists in the Gold division.

We know of many other teams finding success on the pitch in regular league play as well. 

Keep up the great work! Go Storm!
