From Coach Miley's Desk: All-Star Challenge

Nov. 9, 2017

Parents,

I'm presenting the idea with us, for challenging the rest of the league with a "Champions versus All-stars" match as a final match on the 18th or 19th. What do you think? I can't see the idea of an all-stars match being accepted as an extra week going into the holidays. However, it might work as an add-on match after the late match on the 18th, at 1:00., or alternatively at 2:00 after church the next day.

I would hope to coach against two of the other coaches, since I have Chris as an assistant coach. I also don't want this to become a coaching duel between two personalities, in order to keep the focus more on the kids. I realize that the all-stars should be offered by each team's coaches. I'm fine with the all-stars having three selections from each of the other five squads, which gives them three more subs than we would have, but also some wiggle room for a few no-shows.

If the other coaches can organize this, their organizational job would be harder than ours. I know our team has the enthusiasm and ability to hold our own with signature style and flair, but could we also schedule an early afternoon rally for such a challenge match before Saturday's team party? Or after Sunday services? We are talking about a whole Saturday or a Sunday afternoon. The sooner we announce our challenge, the better. The other squads can always accept or decline our challenge. We may be able to get one or two of our league coaches to referee in case we can't get the short notice officiating coverage. Everyone has been itching to topple us, and we could stand there and let the whole league take one more stacked up try at us, but I really don't think the results would be any different. I know we all believe in our team, so this is only about scheduling.

Of course, we need to know we can field a team before we announce the challenge. I have presented this as only an idea with league administrator Bobby Herndon. We would need at least nine players for the usual 9v9 match. I would take any nine out of our dozen, with no subs if necessary. And then we would wait for a reply to our challenge.

Parents, I realize the short notice may not allow us to schedule two matches on the following weekend. So, let's put the word out among ourselves. If we can get at least nine commitments and put the challenge out, let's do it loud and clear with one last wave of our flag. I want our kids to know they can challenge the whole league and confidently wait for a reply. Regarding our final weekend of the 18th/19th, please reply on our text thread: "Saturday (1:00) and/or Sunday (2:00)" or "Not available for all-star challenge". It's our challenge, so we can announce the time and place. Just like the Old West. I will announce to the other coaches our challenge, with league permission, as soon as we have enough parents for our team's voice on this. So let's be swift and sure. Thank you!

⚽️ Coach Miley
