We are an existing WAGS team that practices in the North Potomac/Gaithersburg area. We are currently looking for 4-5 players for the Fall 2011 season when we expand our roster in order to ramp up for 11 v 11 play. We are interested in all positions, including goalie. We look for girls that will fit into the team both on and off the field. On the field we look for hard working, athletic players who have good foot skills and demonstrate smart decision making. We have a core of girls who have been together for 3 years (6 outdoor seasons) and they have a lot of fun off the field as well, so that is also a very important part of this team. We put an emphasis on continued individual and team growth, while at the same time, emphasizing having fun with your teammates.
The team is coached by Pat Lane (Head Coach) and Matt Mills (Assistant Coach), both with extensive coaching backgrounds/training and competitive soccer experience. We also use a professional trainer to help the girls with individual skill development. Our goal is to provide long term soccer development, teaching the girls skills, tactics and soccer strategy that they will need in order to remain competitive throughout their playing careers.
We are looking for girls who really enjoy soccer and who want to commit to Fall, Winter and Spring soccer…as well as occasional tournaments…which we have found the girls really enjoy. However, the team supports the girls participating in other activities outside of soccer hopefully helping to make each girl a more well rounded individual.
If interested, we would like to have you to a practice or two during the Spring, so we can get to know each other. We practice on Mondays and Thursdays at Thurgood Marshall Elementary School in the Gaithersburg/Quince Orchard HS area. Please contact Pat Lane at firstname.lastname@example.org to set something up.
