Soccer Introduction Message from Mr. Taylor

To:       Students & Parent/Guardian(s)

Fr:        J. Taylor

Re:       Soccer

 

Congratulations and thank you for showing your school spirit by participating on a school sponsored athletic team.  Being on the Alice Fong Yu Red Dragons’ Team requires dedication and commitment from both players and parents/guardians.  All student athletes are expected to be responsible for all of their academic assignments. 

 

With the sport of soccer returning to Alice Fong Yu, we welcome this year’s AFY Red Dragons Soccer Team Head Coach, Mr. Nicholas Torres. He is a seasoned soccer instructor at the collegiate level.  Some maybe familiar with Coach Torres as he was one of the AFY coaches during the track season.  The plan is to have 2 - 3 practices per week.  There are a total of nine regular season games plus practices (please check the given AFY soccer schedule, the AFY Athletics webpage on the school loop website and the athletic website: cifsf.org).  Most notifications / information will be communicated verbally and/or through email as they become available.

 

Practice is a crucial part of performance!  We cannot expect to perform well if we do not practice.  We realize that many of you have commitments to a variety of activities which may often create a scheduling conflict.  If you are unable to make a practice session for any reason, please communicate with Coach Torres as soon as you are aware of your absence or tardy.  Coach Torres’ email is: ntorres3@mail.sfsu.edu.

 

The tentative practice schedule, subject to change, is Mondays and Wednesdays from 5:00pm – 6:30pm at South Sunset Rec.  Games begin at 3:30pm unless otherwise noted.

 

If you have any questions, please contact Coach Torres or Mr. Taylor.

 

Thank you.

2011-12 AFY Soccer Team

2011-12 AFY Soccer Team

Message from Coach Ramirez- 2010 Soccer Coach

“…And, Soccer is born in AFY”

By coach Jaime Ramirez

 

“Why not a 10-0 season coach?”was the response I got from one of the AFY Red Dragons at our first official practice as I shared with the team that I would be happy to have a winning record in the first soccer season representing our school. I was hoping for 6 wins that could place our team above the middle of the table (standings) in our inaugural soccer season.

 

After 3 days of tryouts, and with over 25 students participating, we created a team of 18 players. The main goal in this first season was to have the players learn, appreciate, and enjoy the aspects of being part of our soccer team in the district's competitive league. But the team is playing really well, scoring almost 5 goals per game and is undefeated after seven matches, and even though our record is not going to be 10-0 anymore, today (1/13/11) coach Jaime got his wish. We got our sixth win in seven matches. The other result is a tie. A game in the early part of the season played dramatically under a rainstorm. The AFY Red Dragons are not just above the middle of the table. They are on the top!

 

The beautiful gamehas officially arrived in our school, and I sincerely hope as a coach and as a parent, that it is here to stay. Our team is undefeated and with such an impressive first ever season thus far; it is certainly in good shape.

 

The players are excited. The coach is ten times as excited! The season has taken on historical proportions already. It does not matter that as the newcomers to MS Soccer in the district; we are placed in the lower division (Division 2), where we are not playing the strong power house teams traditionally in Division 1 of MS soccer. However, the way things look now, we have very realistic chances to play one of those schools in the playoffs. Yes! THE PLAYOFFS!

 

With the winning attitude of our players and the remaining games ahead of us, including a game with the other undefeated team in the division; I like our chances to earn one of the two spots that will make us advance to the playoffs. If we do succeed in getting to the playoffs, we would get a “reality check” in just how skilled our team is. But the reality we can be sure of right now is that we must be proud of the accomplishments and dedication of our soccer players already demonstrated in the field. The reality is that as a coach, I feel grateful and fortunate to have a group of supporting and enthusiastic soccer parents led by Karen Grandley as the team parent; and an assistant coach that is an AFY graduate and a soccer champion in his high school. Thanks Julian Enis!

 

The reality is that without the help and dedicated support from Mr. Taylor, this dream of mine to coach the AFY soccer team would not be possible. Thanks Mr. Taylor!

 

I am confident that we –players, coaches and soccer parents- are doing everything possible to represent our school with honor and dignity. We will work hard to hopefully one day be in the championship match and win it! The challenge is really huge, but “Impossible is nothing,” reads a slogan from a major world wide soccer brand. I’d like to use it to inspire our players, and to let the whole AFY community know, that soccer will not be a simple sport we now play in our school. The beautiful game will be an extension of the hard work that is characteristic of our principal and teachers in our wonderful school.

 

GO RED DRAGONS!
