The coaching staff at Penn United Force has generously allowed any interested player(s) to try out for their team(s). This is a great opportunity for PMBS players to improve themselves and the school team. If anyone is not on a competitive club team I highly encourage you to attend these tryouts/practices.
The only way Penn Manor will be a championship caliber soccer team is if everyone is playing competitively year ’round.
Penn United Force has openings for U14 boys and U16 boys and up at the Weaver Turf field complex (2750 Weaver Road, Lancaster, 17601)
Dates are as follows:
Thursdays 11/2, 11/9, 11/16 — 6-7:30pm, please arrive at 5:45pm
I would like to thank the parents and players for their support this season. I realize some teams experienced some challenges in the win/loss department. As winning and losing isn’t stressed until the high school Varsity level it still has some value at all levels of play. Other important aspects of being on a team are learning responsibility, respect, sportsmanship and working alongside others in a common purpose (just to name a few).
With a season lasting only 2 months it is difficult to get players “up to speed” so they are competitive. Many other school teams have players who play competitively year ’round.
In order for the program to excel it is vital for all players to improve their technical and tactical ability. This can only happen if players are willing to play and parents are able/willing to commit the necessary resources required for players to improve (namely time and money). Players only playing rec. soccer or no club soccer at all are at a disadvantage compared to those who are playing travel soccer. Compared to the rest of the league Penn Manor continues to be at a disadvantage because not enough players are playing competitive/travel soccer. Also many players do not take advantage of the summer/individual training opportunities or camp opportunities (which are posted on this site).
I am not only directing this message at players and parents but first and foremost at myself and my coaching staff. As I look to improve myself as a coach with more coaching education, clinics, conventions and the like I will also be working with the coaching staff this off season to help them improve as well.
With that being said, this fall and winter there are indoor soccer leagues, programs and clinics available. Please consider the following competitive leagues (not recreational leagues) and clinics below .
As always please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns you have.
