Select Teams/Groups are NOT Divided

Parents,

Your players may have been put into Select teams on the website.  However, this is not finalised.  We are placing the players into the pools on the website for administrative purposes; you will get follow-up emails with the final selections.

Please note, select "teams" or "groups" are based on age of the player.  This will have no correlation with club levels, team placement, etc.

Sorry for the confusion,

Isaiah

TIME IS SHORT AND THE EXCITEMENT OF THE LUXEMBOURG TRIP IS BUILDING!!!
Dear Soccer Enthusiasts,

We are a month away from the beginning of what is becoming a KMC tradition, a weekend playing soccer in Luxembourg. Teams come together for outstanding competition, friendship, fun and the cultural exchange. It should be something very special, something your team will come to know as the “Luxembourg Experience.” 

There is no substitute for international experience.  ProSoc TOURS offers KMC teams the chance for players and coaches to develop a close relationship from living, eating, playing, training, and sightseeing together.

The past tours have been a great success.  I am very proud of what ProSoc TOURS has accomplished, and I look forward to helping young soccer players chase their dreams.  I hope PST can help you gain a deeper understanding of soccer, and a deeper appreciation of what it means to be an American playing soccer overseas.

See attachment!

Yours in soccer,
ProSoc

With all teams in the same league structure, we definitely have the best stratified competition possible.

2016/2017 U.S. Youth Soccer Europe World Cup ***June 10th and 11th***
Well, the US Youth Soccer Europe World Cup is almost upon us.  This will be a unique year in that it will be KMC Soccer District's first time defending the Championship Trophy (on display in Schedelbach Sportheim)!  The kids have always had a blast at this tournament and I would expect nothing less again this year.

The tournament is similar to the Michael Brendel Indoor Tournament back in February, designed to bring together all of the Districts from throughout Europe to give their best showing against one another, but this time outdoors unlike MBT.  This year we will host the tournament on our own fields at Schwedelbach, which will be another first for KMC!  Although the tournament brackets are still in development, for tentative planning purposes, we expect that U7, U9, and U11 teams will compete on Saturday the 10th, with U13, U15, and U17 teams playing on Sunday the 11th.

I also want to remind everyone that because this is an US Youth Soccer Europe event, there will be US players from throughout our KMC District invited to participate in this event.  That means that even though they might not regularly play on a KMC team, they might be added to a team roster for this tournament and each of these players should be given a warm KMC welcome and treated with the dignity and respect that we expect from each of our players in demonstrating excellent sportsmanship.  Some of these players might only participate with KMC Select trainings, some might not participate in any KMC program, but what we consistently see is that a lot of these players are of the caliber that we would love to have them fully participating in our District on one of our teams throughout the year.  Take this as an opportunity to help recruit and bring these players into the exciting opportunities of KMC!

A new twist to this years World Cup will also be the inclusion of international teams from the surrounding area in order to flush out brackets for a full tournament where they would have otherwise been lacking due to fewer teams in certain age groups. This was a decision voted on collectively by the District Presidents at the MBT in Feb.  As of now, I have heard of Lux teams as well as some of the higher caliber local competition possibly participating.  Stay tuned for the schedule to be released.

Lastly, this will be a HUGE opportunity for KMC to do some fundraising as we will have sole responsibility for running the concessions.  In the past we have been able to raise several thousands of $$ and this perfectly sets us up to support preparation for the upcoming season with the financial burden of new equipment, uniforms, etc, over the summer.  So stay tuned to hear about plans for supporting the tournament.  On the day your child isn't playing, plan to pay it forward to KMC District and come out to support our other teams and organization onto success!

Keep kicking!

KMC Luxembourg Training Camp, May 5-7; Payments with VAT form due by April 5th

KMC Parents-

I wanted to write about the upcoming KMC Luxemburg Training Camp, May 5-7th.  This was an excellent experience for the kids that were able to attend last year and we asked for ProSoc to offer this opportunity again for our kids this year.  Last year some of the coaching staff even included current Professional European Club Players, as well as trainers currently playing for their men’s national team and was without a doubt top notch!

The weekend is run very similar to the US Youth Soccer Europe Olympic Development Program, that only a small portion of our kids are able to participate in at such a high level.  We are the only District in US Youth Soccer Europe to offer such a unique experience like this Lux Camp and this is part of our promise to the members to try to harness some of the incredibly awesome soccer opportunities that living in Europe offers us.  We also really want to make sure that each of our KMC kids get to be involved in experiences like this, so this is definitely something that we would really want to see a lot of participation not just from our Club I teams, but especially from our Academy and Club II teams showing their commitment, excitement and love for the sport of soccer that we hope KMC is fostering in them.

The camp is a little over an hour away from the KMC and will start with a training session on Friday evening so the kids will not have to miss any school.  They will be housed in a very nice hostel (approx. 4 beds/room) within walking distance of the main training fields. Sat will include at least three separate training sessions and the camp will culminate on Sunday with some games against the host club, US Mondorf, and a get together BBQ put on by the club.  This was enjoyed by everyone that attended last year as the host were more than gracious and a good time was had by all! 

Please ask a KMC Board member or our DoC, Sebastian Korst, if you have any questions and I hope that this is something that each of you can get excited about! 

Payments of 175e with a VAT form are due by April 5th, so hurry up and get registered now.

US Youth Soccer Europe Michael Brendel Tournament ***February 18th & 19th***

The US Youth Soccer Europe Michael Brendel Annual Indoor Tournament is coming to Ramstein February 18th and 19th!  The rosters are currently being developed and players need to let their coaches/team parents know if they will be participating.  We anticipate that the U7-U11 teams play on Saturday and the older teams will be play on Sunday, but the schedule is yet to be released.

The MBT is a tournament designed to bring together the US players from all over Europe.  This not only includes teams we  typically play from Stuttgart, Wiesbaden, Bavaria, Naples and Vicenza, but ALSO other players from within our KMC District that don't play on our KMC District teams, but have membership in the US Youth Soccer Association.  Many of these players participate in the KMC District Select training program on Sundays along with some of our players, some might participate only in the Olympic Development Program and others might not participate in either program but play on German teams and come together with us to play in this tournament.  Also, please be aware that some teams will be split into smaller teams in an attempt to maximize the players' time on the court playing.

So, if there are faces on your teams for the MBT that you don't recognize, please make sure to give them a warm KMC welcome!  The majority of them we would love to have playing and practicing as part of KMC teams and they're all looking for a chance to play and have fun, just like our own kids.  Also, take pride in that what we have in KMC District is unique, took a lot of effort and legwork to develop over the years and has become the model for the other districts to begin emulating- We are the ONLY US Youth Soccer Europe club that actively participates in the German Federation and are truly poised to become the flagship district of US Youth Soccer Europe!

Lastly, this is an “All hands on Deck” kind of event with ample opportunity for KMC to be able to raise a lot of funds through concessions, etc.  This means that this is a great weekend to knock out some volunteer hours some of you who have been holding off, so be watching for the Sign Up Genius.  We will need people to sell T shirts, work concessions, make snacks, work as line judges, man the First Aid booth, etc.   It really is a lot of fun. 

I hope this might help explain some of the differences we encounter with the MBT and I hope everyone is excited to come out and play! It's a great venue and the kids will have a blast! Let's keep up the KMC spirit and represent well!!

 

Keep kicking!

Indoor Facility Rules/Expected Behavior ***PLEASE READ AND COMPLY***
Most teams will be moving indoor starting this afternoon. We have many new facilities that took a lot of leg work for KMC to get and we can lose them much easier than it took to get them offered to us. As such, here are the ground rules for utilizing these facilities.

1. Players must change into indoor shoes at the door upon entering so they are clean.

2. NO food or drink for players, parents or siblings.  Only players may have a water bottle, no gatorades, only water.  No other family at the session may have food or drinks.

3. The Parent must accompany the child to the bathroom and check the facilities before and after they are used for cleanliness.  NO child, Player or SIBLING, is to utilize the facilities without their parent.  If no parent is present, there's no bathroom for that child inside.

4. Leave the facilities better than when we start there. Do not touch anything that is there already unless it's to move out of the way for training. Do not use their equipment, balls, chalk boards, eraser boards, markers, anything.

5. Facilities will be swept with a broom and put back into order after the last session.  Ensure lights are off and doors are locked after the last team.

6. If tables/chairs are moved in order to practice, they must be put back in place at the end of the last training session after the floors are cleaned.  This needs to be passed on from the earlier to the later training sessions.

7. If something is broken or damaged, report it immediately to the DoC and President to be addressed with the school.

A KMC Board member will be present at the first training sessions to discuss these rules with everyone as well as to discuss coordination of a key for the earlier team and some sort of hand-off between the earlier and later team.

Thanks.

Can we build it, YES WE CAN!!!

KMC Families,

We have finally received all of the materials needed to construct our storage shed (just in time before the weather really turns south).  We will be using KMC manpower to erect the shed to store our high value equipment and training materials.  KMC is requesting any and all volunteers to help us get this shed together during practices at Schwedelbach all week this week.

Please help us make quick work of this important project and protect our financial investments in our organization!

The POC for the shed project is our Vice President, Isaiah Mann and he can be reached at kmcsoccervp@gmail.com.

Thank you for your continued support!

Heimspiel Fundraiser

KMC Families,

This Saturday, October 1st, KMC District will be hosting 3 home games at our fields in Schwedelbach.  We are actively seeking volunteers to provide donations and "man" the snack booth during these games.  The proceeds from the fundraisers go 100% back into KMC and last year's efforts resulted in much of the new equipment your players use today.

Please consider donating refreshments, snacks or your time to help us "pay it forward" and continue making KMC a great place to play.  Sign-ups for this worthwhile event can be accessed at the link below.

KMC District Newsletter, Sunday September 4th

KMC District Families,

This letter is a new attempt to engage more with our families and try to raise awareness of events happening within our club.  Our aim is to offer this brief newsletter weekly, wish us luck!

Last Week

U7, U9, U11, and U13 played in a tournament in Rohrbach on August 29th.  This was our first opportunity this season to come together and play matches.  Our teams were successful and competitive.

This week

Our U13-1 team started their qualification play on Friday.  Most of our other teams begin their qualification campaign in the coming days.

Also this week, many of our KMC District players are vying for a spot in the Olympic Development Program player pool under USYS-Europe.  These players are attending a three day, two night camp in Bitburg with some of the best coaches in the area.  Wish them luck!

Looking ahead

Monday – No practice.

-       Practice for the rest of the week is as scheduled for most teams

Wednesday – U13-2 has a match in Hoenecken and the Mens team plays at home – Good luck!

Wednesday & Thursday is our bring a friend to practice event.  Players who bring a friend (or two) to practice on those nights will receive a cool treat and chance to wine prizes during our F.U.N. Night

Friday – F.U.N. Night at the Schwedelbach field.  Food and fun is planned, as is our quarterly general membership meeting.  For more information and to RSVP see F.U.N. Day RSVP

Saturday – 6 matches are on the calendar from U11 to U15, check out KMC District Calendar for more information

Sunday – Select training resumes

Additional Information

- Did you know that most scheduling questions can be answered by visiting the calendar section of our website - KMC District Calendar ?  Match times, game locations, practice schedule, and much more information can be found on our website.

- A team parent is needed for each team; contact kmcdistrictregistar@gmail.com if interested.

* Both are great ways to meet the volunteer requirement and get more involved in your player’s club.

- Our t-shirt fundraiser is ongoing - $15 or 15€ per shirt, sizes are limited (youth small through adult XL).  See Kathy to get yours.

* Bonus did you know – There is a free fussball.de app that lists, among other things; matches, locations, group standings, etc.  Search “fussball.de” where you get your apps.  Once downloaded search “US Youth Soccer Europe” within the app and mark as “My Favorites”.  You will see our teams listed there: C = U15, D = U13, E = U11, F = U9, G = U7.  You may also mark specific teams as “favorites” to easily keep track of them.

As our third week comes to an end the KMC District board would like to thank everyone for their support and for choosing to be a part of our club.

Team Assignments

KMC District Members,

It has come to our attention that there may be some confusion and angst about player team assignments for this season.  As our outstanding ProSoc Academy coaching staff is still evaluating team chemistry and dynamics, players HAVE NOT yet been assigned to their final teams (Club 1, Club 2, etc.).  Throughout the first 3 weeks of practice, the coaches will continue to evaluate the players and they will inform the board of the final team assignments, once approved by the KMC District Director of Coaching.

Your players are currently assigned to teams based on age group on the KMC District website.  This assignment is temporary and for communications purposes only.  We have to assign your players on a team so that you can receive the website-generated messages and e-mails.

We will inform you once the team assignments have been finalized and when your player has been assigned to their team for this season.

Please let any of the board members know if you have any questions or issues.
