The Group's Purpose

Our goal is to play soccer the right way, even if it means making mistakes and, in some cases, losing. Along the way, we hope our successes on the field lead to raising money for the Terry Fox Foundation for cancer research. There is not a single girl on our team whose family hasn't been touched by cancer in some way and since Terry Fox was a local athlete who grew up and went to school in our community, it seemed a logical to choose the Terry Fox Foundation as our charity. The girls are very excited to raise money while playing better. We have set some short term goals toward achieving our long term goal of playing a possession style of the "beautiful game". Our girls aim for the following:

* round the horn (full switch from one side back through the goalie, out the other side and up. When it goes well, the neatest thing is the player who initiated it with the pass back is often the one that gets rewarded with the scoring chance on the other end....when it doesn't, she can help get the ball out of our net ;) coaches pledge $1 for every time we execute this!

* pass back to goalie/sweeper (ideally this happens any reasonable time a player is running hard with the ball under pressure in her own end back toward our keeper) ***Coach pledges $5 every time we try this and it ends up in our net.

*balls out of the air/brave play (no-bounce goalie balls and corner kicks and entering tackles on front foot hard in)

*maintaining/gaining possession through appropriate physical play

*Through balls and give n go's, set balls back to trailing players

*Creative footskills

*pass completion rate of 60+%

*300+ passes per game

*15+ shots per game
