Subj:  Junior Academy U7/U8 Player ID Session Information

Dear Beach FC u7-u8 Junior Academy Player ID Registrants,

In preparation for tomorrow evening's Player ID session we wanted to pass along some important information. 

Time and Location:  Tomorrow's session will be held at Hampton Roads Soccer Complex (2276 Recreation Drive, Virginia Beach) on fields 14 and 15 from 5:30-7pm.  (Field Map: Please do not park in the Center Circle at the complex without either a valid Handicapped Parking Pass or a current HRSC Permit.  The HRSC staff has been directed to tow vehicles that are parking there without valid credentials.  Note:  There is a concert scheduled at the amphitheater tomorrow evening which has the ability to cause backups on Princess Anne Rd and Concert Drive.  You may want to consider leaving extra travel time or consider parking at the back of the complex at New Castle Elementary School (4136 Dam Neck Rd, Virginia Beach, VA 23456) and walking through the back gate of the complex.

Player ID Philosophy:  Even though tomorrow and next week are considered identification sessions please understand that this is simply another opportunity for the kids to play and for the coaches to gauge the players’ level heading into the fall season.  Beach FC Junior Academy in these age groups is an inclusive program, meaning that we are certainly not in the business of cutting 6 and 7 year old boys and girls.  If the staff feels that a particular player might benefit more from our recreation program, they will seek you out to discuss your options.  Tryout numbers will not be utilized for these age groups; there will be enough staff evaluating to help identify the new players in the program without the use of numbers.

Weather:  Please note that the weather is in question for tomorrow.  We expect to receive heavy rain at times during the day so we will have to evaluate the weather and field conditions prior to the session.  Please check your email and also the HRSC weather hotline (757.518.5176) prior to leaving for the fields tomorrow for any updates. 

Thank you and please don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.  We look forward to (hopefully) seeing everyone tomorrow.
