It has been a busy and fun season this year for OUSA, but now it's time for a little break. We hope that you all have enjoyed the Spring season. We want to thank Furman United for helping us along this year as we continue to grow. We also want to thank The Oconee County School district for all the help in getting us great fields to practice and play on. This Spring season saw the first ever games played in Walhalla. We are going to take a few weeks off before we start preparing for the Fall 2016 season.
The Fall 2016 season will see something new. It's the new age mandate from US Soccer. Bill Martin from FUSC has taken the time to create a video explaining the new rule and you can see it HERE. Please take a few minutes and watch it as it will answer any questions you may have about this confusing subject.
Hey kids! This summer, why not turn off the XBox, get off the couch, and come on out to our great fields at Keowee Elementary School to enjoy a fun-filled week of soccer. These camps will be run by Coach Joshua Steele, and will be filled with awesome instruction, competitive games, and most of all, fun playing the game we all love. Each day, in addition to valuable technical training on the ball, Coach Steele will be giving instruction on a variety of different topics including: dribbling, passing, finishing on goal, defending, and combination play. Coach Steele knows how long the summer is and that you need to stay sharp for the fall, whether you are playing Rec or Club soccer. Because of this he is offering not only one week, but two weeks of jam-packed soccer instruction and fun. We'll see you this summer!
This email was sent to us by a coach from FUSC.
"Coaches, The following email was send to some coaches last week. Please take a minute to read this! On Tuesday, February 9th at the MESA Complex we had a situation occur that all our club members need to be made aware of. As the 5:15pm session ended two of Under 10 age group boys were approached in the parking lot by a man they were unfamiliar with. He asked the boys if they wanted to enter his car to stay warm. Thankfully both boys refused and he drove away. Obviously this scenario is one that we must pay close attention to. The person in question is a white male ( possibly in his 40's with sideburns). We believe he is driving a Toyota Forerunner ( Beige/Gray). If any player, parent or coach witnesses any suspicious behavior please don't hesitate to step in and make sure that everything is ok. We would rather be safe than sorry. All of our coaches are reminded that it is important to stay with your players until they have all been picked up by someone that they are comfortable with. In addition we are asking our parents and coaches to remind the players that they should never get into a vehicle with someone that they don't know.
Hey guys! Do you remember Coach Brainy? He has given us his email address and he would love to hear from each of us. Click HERE to email Coach Brainy.
