Good morning, Team. My name is Coach Jesse and it's my privilege to welcome you to Davidsonville Athletic Association's Fall '19 Youth Development Soccer program. I'm thrilled that your child (and family!) have been drafted onto the (pathetically named) "Team Kellner". We'll sort that out for the better come Thursday, even if we have to name ourselves!
Speaking of which, and in case it's not already on your radar, we have our first practice this Thursday, September 5th, 5:30pm at the MD Farm Bureau - Field 3 (3358 Davidsonville Road (Rt. 424), Davidsonville, MD 21035). I know 5:30pm is awful close to the end of the work day so thanks for your committed efforts to arrive at the field in a timely fashion. Also, please be certain that your children arrive with the appropriate equipment (cleats, shinguards, water, etc.).
To set a clear expection for the season and to assure our kids the very best experience of team sports in these formative years, let's together agree that each child will participate in every practice/game unless alerting me otherwise in advance. This will allow me to plan and execute the best possible practices for the team. I'm sure you can imagine how different a practice will be with three participants instead of seven.
In the event that you have any questions along the way, don't hesistate to reach me here, via email at email@example.com, or via phone/text at 410.693.8500. I'm committed to providing a fun, team-building, and instructional environment for our kids and welcome any input along the way.
Looking forward to meeting your children and families on Thursday and, until then...
Coach Jesse Kellner
