I was approached by Ed DuBeau with an idea to start a U08 Boys Travel Soccer Team back in the Fall of 2009. Ed stated that he already was the head coach of another team and if I would head coach, he would assist and take care of the administrative end. I replied with an unenthused yes, sure, we will talk more... The next time I heard from him, he was congratulating me on being an official head coach. To my surprise, not only was I a coach, we had players, we also had a trainer, the man works quick! I knew, from this point forward, I had to be careful when I answer him...LOL! This is how the Warriors were born.
In Spring of 2010, with the help of Assistant Coach Ed DuBeau, parent Fernando Olveira and Trainer Ricky North, the Warriors took the field for the first time. Fielding a team of 9 players, the Warriors completed the season with the heart and determination. What was also present was the participation/availability of all the parents to help whenever needed.
In fall of 2010, the Warriors lost and gained a player which kept the player roster at 9. The heart and determination that the Warriors displayed at the end of the Spring 2010 season carried over with an outstanding second season!!! The Warriors came in 3rd with only 1 loss and several ties, one being against the winner of the flight....amazing!
So now here we are in the Spring 2011 season and the Warriors managed to keep the original players and added 2 bringing our roster to 11. We also gained another member to the coaching staff, Assistant Coach Fernando Olveira (he always was but now it’s official). We have high expectations for a great upcoming season.
This saga continues....... GO WARRIORS!!!
