Went to my first WPS game

Saw the Breakers host FC Gold Pride the other night(Wed) and was an interesting and enjoyable night.-Got in for free as a group that was there had some leftover tickets for the game, so saved the $13 ticket(note:that is the cheapest seat in the house). Negative: should of used money saved to buy a seat cushion. Seats are more like concrete slabs(really).-Lovely night for a game, but fans are seated on East side of stadium , so sun glares right into you and the sound system was poor. Had no clue who was going in and what was being announced at all. Might have been better in the north end of the stadium. No behind goal seating, which I prefer.-The Breakers have a fan/supporters group that was 15 people strong and had some quality songs and chants, but as the league caters mainly to families, kind of surprised with the amount of "You suck" chants coming from them(but they are in the south corner of the stadium away from the crowd, which stinks for them)-Game was okay and is always tough to evaluate these when your getting ConFed games in the afternoon with the likes of Spain, Brazil and even South Africa was entertaining that day. Breakers did not have a shot(IMO) until the 2nd half, but had nice possession, just passes into the final 3rd seemed off. FCGP was BIG in the back and played safely away from trouble, midfield had nice movement and the Japanese player was a handful(was sitting among alot of FCGP fans, incl Tiff Weimer's family)-Do a nice job with building the atmosphere, but the cameras seemed to be more focused on fan shots during play than the game. Cameras on the game were at the top of the stadium, so the shots appeared as if they were from a blimp.-Food/drink options alot on the former, so so on the latter. Prices go from $3 to $8 on food and you can get RedBones BBQ which is quality grub. Drinks...Coronas, Guinness and Bud(think all went for $6). Better bet take the 5-10 min walk over to Harvard Square which has tons of options.-Parking-$10...REALLY??? Cost me $4 = free to park in Somerville and $4 to take the T fr Davis Square(10 min ride tops w/rush hour service meaning little wait time). As game kicked at 7, you can try to find on street parking, but having worked in Harvard Square...good luck with that.-Have post game autograph session with I think both teams which is great for the kids(not sure about a post game drink up for the adults...hey now)-Breakers-Lilly always great to watch. Smith came in the 60 min mark and was solid(must be hurt), Nobis was WOTM-came on as sub at half...bundle of energy was fun to watch...scored the tying goal...needs to work on the celebrations though(I kid, I kid...). Scott also nice to watch, ARod seemed to be off her game. For FCGP, Formiga was solid in the midfield and Tiff Milbrett was out there..great to see her still playing and playing hard. Barnhart the GK read the game very well and as stated the Japanese FWD/HB was a handful-Crowd was 3600+...lots of buses with fans from CT, ME..for a weeknight game that's some impressive travelling-Overall not a bad way to spend the night, especially for $4 total...made me missed living outside the big city. But bring a seat cushion...

I'm a senior referee in Sydney and my passion is to help players and referees get on with each other better. That's got to be good for the game generally, but it's also an important consideration when it comes to enjoyment of the game and gaining an advantage over your opposition.So, if you're interested in subjects like getting on with the referee better, understanding his (or her) decisions, appreciating what motivates... and demotivates... referees, why they still do it despite all the abuse and sometimes threats they get, etc....Then I'd like to hear from you. Let's get a dialogue going.

starting as a goalkeeping coach

this is my second season as a coach, and my first as a goalkeeping coach. i have managed to fall into coaching by accident really. last year i joined a local team with the idea of just keeping fit,but managed to somehow end up taking weekly training with absolutely no clue what i was doing. this year i decided to do things right and to train myself as a coach. as a player i was a goalkeeper, so therefore goalkeeping coaching seems to be the way forward for me(go with what you know and all that).now again this season i have managed to fall in with a junior team (u14s) and i am running a weekly goalkeepers clinic. problem is that every week i am getting more keepers that want to train and learn the crazy gracefull art of a goalkeeper, and i am now struggling to provide new and intertaining ways to help these young guys to be the best that they can be.i have no professional qualifications myself (as yet!), and am building training plans from what i can glean from a number of websites and friends, but i seem to have hit a wall, as there is limited resources on the internet, and i am starting to repeat previous exercises from earlier in the year.So my plea to everyone is for any help that anyone can provide, whether it is training drills or writing session plans, or any little nuggets of wisdom that can passed on.i believe these young boys deserve the chance to reach their full potential and maybe become succesfull footballers in the future, and also for me to become the best that i can be as a coach.I look forward to hearing from you all, and all advice will be gratefully recieved.Thanks Steven.

Red Card from SoccerClub

Earlier we posted our first draft of our Rules for Membership to SoccerClub. The rules come down to show respect and don't screw around with anyone. We get constant notes about some of the "agents" offering to help players and coaches find teams. They are difficult at times to investigate since we don't want to punish and honest person doing honest work. However, what we have learned is that old classic; if it smells rotten, then it probably is.

As a result, we have started to ban some users, and I will keep a running list here in case these situations and pitches come back again, then we can squash them again. I posted their notes "as is" so you can identify if hese cases come up again at SoccerClub, or on another site that you are using. Please note that these are posted as written. If you decide to use these emails, you are doing so at your own risk.

4 Simple Soccer Drills With Cones

Intro to simple soccer drills with cones

It is always fun to open up a video on the web and see players like Ronaldinho, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo dazzling the world. It almost seems that they have the soccer ball attached to their foot. That is why the world loves them. When they touch the ball everyone is left in awe. While it seems like it is magic, it is not. These players are the best in the world and have become that way by practicing fundamentals. There are many drills and exercise that you can do to better your foot skills. It won't necessarily stun millions of people around the world but it will certainly help you play better. It will help you in one-on-one situations and increase your ability as a player.

Dribbling between the cones

Set up seven cones about a meter apart from one another in a straight line. The cones serve as an obstacle course that you must run through. Once they are set up, dribble through them slowly. Start on the right side of the first cone and go to the left of the next cone. Then go to the right side of the next cone and so on. When you reach the end turn around and do it again. When you feel comfortable, you should try using just your left foot or right foot. Isolating one side of the foot is always important to increasing your abilities

With the same set up, try dribbling around the cone. You should try to stay as close as you can to the cones without touching them. When you have successfully completed one rotation, go on to the next cone. You should continue until you have gone through the entire line of cones. Once again, you can concentrate on one foot at a time while working on you ability to cut.

Cut backs in the circle of cones

To begin, set up seven cones in a circle about 3 meters wide. Enter the circle and begin dribbling freely. Once you have become accustomed to the size of the circle, start to dribble up to the cones. When you get close, stop the ball by stepping on it and pulling it back. Then keep cutting across the circle and doing that. After a few moments go back to random dribbling. If you want to get better quicker, maker the circle smaller.

Soccer Golf

For this drill you need a lot of open space. Take your seven cones and spread them around the soccer field. If you feel like being really ambitious, place a number 1-7 on them. With them spread out, try to hit them using a combination of long passes and short passes. Play it like golf and keep track of your score. Once you hit one go onto the next one. See how many passes it takes to complete your soccer golf course

Speed zones

For this drill you will also need a lot of space as well. To begin, you need to set up cones standing upright or laying down. You should alternate between to two. The cones that are lying down are "Speed Up" zones and the cones that are standing are "Slow Down" zones. When you pass through a speed zone you sprint while dribbling the ball and when you pass through a slow zone you jog and dribble. These soccer-drills are all about increasing your dribbling abilities, your long and short passing and your cuts. They may seem very basic but when you practice over and over, these skills become second nature on the field.
