Prairie Fire Soccer Proposal

Prairie Fire Soccer Proposal
Here is our official proposal for the Prairie Fire Soccer Club. Just click on the link above. This explains our motivations and goals. It also explains the details about teams, game formats, finances, and fundraising.

Prairie Fire Soccer Club will be putting on small 1-hour soccer sessions indoors at the Heritage Grade School in Homer.  These will begin on November 8th.  Ages 8-12 will practice 5:30-6:30pm. and ages 13-18 will practice 6:30-7:30pm.  If you are wanting to participate, please have the form and payment ready at the first session.  Doors on the first day will open at 5:00 so I can get registrations started.  We are not accepting late registrations.  This is an open gym style.  It's not mandatory.  While we'd love to see everyone participate, it will be focused and somewhat rigorous.  And while we want it to be fun (and it will be), our focus will be work, not socialization or goofing around.   There will be rules set forth at the beginning and the kids are expected to abide by those rules.   We will be working on foot skill, trapping, small touches, etc. and will play small-sided games.  Todd Rentschler and I will be coaching the kids during these sessions.  This will keep the players ready for the spring and also will serve as a way to improve their skills. 
We will charge a $15 fee to offset the costs of equipment (weighted balls for indoor use).  This is a very inexpensive alternative to Soccer Planet and will be much more in-depth.  It's a good way to keep playing without traveling intoUrbana each week.  Depending how many we get, Todd and I discussed renting the Soccer Planet at least one time this year and for those who would be interested, we would ask that you chip in $5 to $10 when the times comes. 
We welcome all current members of PFSC or those who would like to become a PFSC members.  Hope to see a lot of you out.
AGES 8-12 (click on "ages 8-12")
AGES 13-18 (click on "ages 13-18")


Indoor will start the week on November 7th at 5:45p.m. and will depend on the numbers how many days it will run per week.  If interested, please fill out the form below and get it to me as soon as possible.  Please use west doors to Heritage Grade School.
