All students and families are welcome to attend graduation after rank testing. We will be ordering ADIDAS Team Jackets for all students who are looking to have a jacket this winter so please place your orders at the Pro-Shop this Friday night. In addition we will be releasing our Summer Camp 2019 information where families who register for our summer camp will receive a discount when registering before Friday February 15, 2019. Lastly we are raffling off a set of kicking targets at the pro-shop. Perfect for at home practice.
Chase What Matters!
The truth is, no matter where we are in life or what time of year it is, we will always have a list of "do betters", "goals" or as we call them this time of year "resolutions". What are some of the things that make up your typical list? Think about the goals you put on your list and then ask yourself, 'How much of this can I realistically get accomplished in an approprate amout of time'?
We should all do ourselves a favor and relish the New Year and commit to setting reachable goals that we all will actually follow through with. Some of the most popular New Years Goals / Resolutions are getting in shape and trying to quit a bad habbit. If we Chase What Matters we will take ownership of our goals and resolutions while making a true effort to reach them in 2019. Taking ownership will allow you to put in place the steps needed to reach your goals.
When creating your goal list this year, make sure the elements of your list have to do with the roll you will take and are things you are actually able to accomplish and apply. This is not the list of things that your parents or your boss would have you do BUT rather the things YOU want to acheive. So make it your list not anyone elses.
On a personal note
This year I have a few goals / resolutions that I've "pushed off" every year. I've said, "I'll do that later, there's plenty of time". Not so this year! I'm holding myself accountable and taking ownership. So therefore I'll be painting the spindles of the staircase that I started SIX years ago this spring and checking that off my list. Remember that a goal doesn't need to be earth shattering, it just needs to be yours.
