Soccer 2005 - Region 34

Boys U-10 : Team #3

Hi Everybody,

Welcome to the 2005 soccer season!

My name is Carl Mosher and I will be coaching the Boys U-10 (Team #3) this season. I have been coaching in this Region for 8 years and look forward to meeting all of you at our Team/Parents meeting on Thursday, August 25th at 7:00 p.m. at the Alta Vista Community Center patio. Click Here for Map. Players should bring shin guards and cleats if they have them. I would like to have a very short practice just to get a feel for the team.

Our team is building a website at LASoccerKids.com  All the information regarding our team, team activities, practices, contact information, pictures, etc. will be located at our website. You should have already received an invitation to join with your preliminary Username and Password which is required to view the protected areas of the site. When you first log in with your username and password, you will be required to fill out some information to gain access. (Note: If you enter a birth date of a person younger than 13 years of age, you will be required to obtain adult permission (via email) prior to logging in. The easier solution is to use parent information when completing this form). If you have any question prior to our meeting, please give me a call (310-833-6674) or email me at coach@lasoccerkids.com
