Flyweights first game, and more to come


Great job on Saturday it was so fun to finally get on the field and play. I told the team prior to the game that we will make mistakes in today’s game and all we need to do is to learn from each mistake that we make. We will work on those this week. Parents we had 8 players that played their first game on Saturday and considering that we did very well.

This week we will practice three days
Tuesday 5:00 to 7:30
Wednesday 5:30 to 7:00 (note time)
Thursday 5:00 to 7:30 being a controlled scrimmage on the back field @ NN with the Chargers.

We also have a tentative game with Buffalo Grove on Sunday 10/4. Please let me know if their are any issues with Sunday asap.

Here are upcoming games that are on the schedule.
@ BG on  Sunday 10/4 Tentative
@ Wilmette Eagles on Thursday 10/8 time and location TBA
@ Vernon Hills on Sunday 10/18 @ 3:00 pm (directions to follow)

Thanks so much for signing up your boys. We will continue to work and get better.

Important info for Parents

Dear Parents –

As you may be aware, our program made the decision to withdraw from the CSL league.  This decision was not made lightly but after the CSL league refused our request to move players up or down a level; which impacted out ability to maintain sufficient numbers to form teams.  The CSL league gave us structure and scheduling that we now must be responsible for on our own.  Consequently, our program will do its best to schedule scrimmages and games for your players.  We appreciate your patience as we look to take on scheduling, and will do our utmost to keep you informed as soon as possible when new scrimmages are scheduled.  Practice will continue as planned.

We know that this is not what was expected when you signed up for our program.  Because of this, we are offering parents who have paid in full the opportunity to withdraw their player from the program for a refund (less the $50 deposit).  You must do so by October 1st, otherwise, no refunds will be given.

We appreciate your patience and support in this matter.  Know that the expert instruction provided by Kevin Augusta and staff continues during our practice, and we feel confident that we will have some challenging opponents to scrimmage during the season.

Go Junior Vikings!
