To all Arlington travel team families, PDF file

I am attaching a final draft of the revised ASA By-Laws. As many of you know Arlington Travel Soccer Club has been regarded as just one Club among the many recreational clubs that make up Arlington Soccer Association. Under our constitution we are obligated to abide by the rules and policies of the ASA. In most respects the travel club has been, and will remain self-governing. However, the new by-laws do introduce some changes I want to draw to your attention.

Weather Safety and Lightning
June 4, 2009

To ATSC Tryout Families,

As you know we are experiencing some bad weather during the tryouts. If lightning occurs during tryouts the coaches will clear the field immediately. Please do no allow your child to go back on the field to collect a ball or any other article. Wait until the storm has passed and you have been told it is safe to go back on the field. We all heard about the tragic events in Spotsylvania County, last night, where at least one child was struck by lightning and killed. Please be safe.

Richard Easby
ATSC President

Hello ATSC Tryout Registrants,
May 22, 2009

This is Grant Smith, Director of Coaching for the Arlington Travel Soccer Club. Welcome to our tryout process for the 2009-2010 season. I look forward to seeing your children on the soccer field competing for spots on our teams.

I plan on taking a few minutes at one session of each of the U9-11 age group tryouts to talk a little bit about the club and answer any questions you may have about ATSC. I am sure some of you will not be able to attend, so I also wanted to send out a brief e-mail about ATSC’s team and player expectations.

Director of Coaching Reoroganization 2009-2010
April 23, 2009

Dear ATSC Families:

As we begin the Spring 2009 soccer season, Arlington Soccer Association’s Travel Soccer Club is also planning for Fall 2009. Flyers with information on the U9-U12 tryouts are being distributed in Arlington Public Schools this week. The U13-U19 tryout schedules and all coaching assignments for Fall 2009/Spring 2010 will be posted to the ATSC website by April 30.

For the Fall 2009 soccer season, Arlington Soccer will reorganize the Travel Soccer Club Director of Coaching responsibilities. Under the new structure, we will have three positions responsible for the technical direction and management of coaches in the Club. There will be a Director of Coaching for Boys’ teams and a Director of Coaching for Girls who will be responsible for overseeing and coordinating coaches for teams in their respective gender group. The third position, Director of Player Development, will be responsible for designing and implementing player training programs, including clinics, camps and other technical and functional training programs. These positions wiill report to ASA Executive Director, Matt Baehr. Grant Smith, ATSC’s current Director of Coaching, will be the Director of Coaching on the boys side. Current ATSC coaches are aware of these changes. Arlington Soccer Association is currently accepting applications for these positions from within the organization and will also consider qualified candidates from outside. ATSC teams should, as always, direct any questions to the Girls and Boys Commissioners.
