Parents and Coaches,
All SAC Junior Academy activities for tomorrow, Saturday 6/12/2021, are cancelled due to wet field conditions and weather forecast. This was to be our last day of the Spring 2021 season, our rain date, but we do have the fields permitted for next Saturday 6/19 if teams would like to get together one last time. Coaches please coordinate with your teams. There will be no scrimmages on 6/19 between teams. We encourage coaches and players who can attend on 6/19 to be flexible and welcome any player at your field to join your group for the day and have fun.

Thanks you,
Eric

We will be holding an online Junior Academy Coaches meeting on Wednesday April 7, 2021 from 7:30 pm to 8:30 pm. I will send a Zoom invite to all coaches that morning.
All new volunteer coaches and returning coaches are encouraged to attend.

New Coaches:

Uniforms for new players and team equipment for new teams & coaches will be distributed by me on the evenings of Thursday April 8th and Friday April 9th from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm at the SAC Headquarters office at Covenant Park. Coaches will then distribute new player uniforms at the field on Saturday April 10th. All volunteer coaches will receive a SAC Under Armour polo shirt.

Parents and Coaches,
Our regular field at Centennial Park #6 is closed today. But we are moving all Girls teams just down the street to Centennial Lane Elementary School (CLES) for today at 9:00 am. I visited CLES this morning and the fields there are fine. We do not have a field permit for CLES so we will have to work around any other sports and activities there at the same time.

Coaches: Please email your teams also to help notify everyone about today’s location.

SAC staff will be at CLES with the team equipment and uniforms.

CLES address:  3825 Centennial Ln, Ellicott City, MD 21042

Thank you,
Eric

Centennial Park field #6 is closed today so the Girls 2015 or Girls 2016 soccer is cancelled for today. This is due to the field conditions from the rain on Thursday and is decided by Parks and Rec. Sorry for the bad news.
Next Junior Academy practice is Saturday Sept. 26th. Girls teams will now use the “rain date” on Nov. 14th at the end of the season.

Thank you,
Eric
