The Mid-County Surf U13 Boys Comp Team is seeking additional players. They have a strong core returning to try out again, and this year they’ll be coached by Al Adamsen. Al is a former professional athlete, college football coach, and experienced youth coach. He’s also a long standing trainer with the Positive Coaching Alliance (PCA).
A note from Al: “My coaching philosophy to create a safe, fun, focused environment where kids can learn about competition, soccer, team dynamics, and themselves. This entails how to carry a relentlessly positive attitude, an uncommon level of focus, and an intelligent allocation of effort. It also involves mastering the core individual skills (ball control, passing, dribbling, shooting, etc.) and game skills (spacing, speed, and scoring mindset). Our tryouts this weekend will be on Soquel High School’s athletic field. Saturday’s tryout will run from 2:20 to 3:40pm and Sunday’s will run from 1:00 to 2:20pm. Should your son wish to participate in the tryout and compete for a position on this year’s U13 Surf Team, please have him there early. Know he’ll have some fun and he may even learn a few things. Hoping to see him there, and hoping to meet you, the parents, as well. To makin’ great things happen!”
