Before the Game Commit to Honoring the Game in action and language no matter what others may do. Tell your children before each game that you will be proud of them regardless of how well they perform. During the Game Fill your children?s ?Emotional Tanks? through praise and positive recognition to help them play their best. Fill their teammates? tanks, too! Do not instruct your child during game action or at breaks; let the coaches coach. Cheer good plays by both teams. Mention good calls by the official to other parents. If you disagree with an official?s call, Honor the Game ? BE SILENT! If other spectators yell at officials, gently remind them to Honor the Game. Don?t do anything in the heat of the moment that you will regret after the game. Ask yourself, ?What do I want to model right now for my child?? Remember to have fun and enjoy the game. After the Game Thank the officials for doing a difficult job for little or no pay. Thank the coaches for their commitment and effort. When reviewing the game with your children, ask rather than tell. Instead of immediately sharing your opinions or telling them how they can improve, ask questions such as ?What did you learn from that game?? or ?What was your favorite play?? or ?What was the most fun part of that game?? Remember to give your children truthful and specific praise?not just the typical ?good game? but, for example, ?I saw how well you moved your feet on defense.? Tell your children again that you are proud of them whether the team won or lost.

Fri, 10 May 2013 19:53:03 +0100Far Post has already shown that they will be a great partner for MTSC. I just want to recognize the great work of Jason Clute and Danny Angelo from Far Post Soccer for the Make a Wish game between the MTSC Green Machine and The Portland Timbers. Far Post donated the new MTSC Adidas uniform kit, which included a jersey with their names on the back, shorts and socks to every player on the Green Machine. They also lobbied Adidas to provide all the kids with new shoes.
I sincerely believe they did this out of the goodness in their hearts without any expectation of recognition since the Timbers have a sponsorship arrangement with another area soccer retail store.
Please take the time to to thank Danny and Jason for their great efforts. They have already proven that Far Post is the right partner for our uniforms and equipment for many years to come.
Fri, 10 May 2013 18:29:33 +0100Our new MTSC uniform is Far Post Soccer Supply!
We will be using the new Adidas Squadra 13 Jersey and shorts starting next Fall 2013. Although if you are anxious to get the new kit it is available in limited quantities right now. This is the same uniform that the MTSC Green Machine wore vs the Portland Timbers on 5/1. MTSC went with Far Post because we believe they will provide the best price and customer service for our members.
The uniform costs will be:
The Diadora jersey we used for the past 3 seasons is no longer manufactured or sold. The Adidas Squarda 13 looks very similar but is much lighter weight. Also, this jersey style is guaranteed to be manufactured by Adidas through the 2016 season. So, we won't have to look for another uniform until the Fall of 2017!

One of the most important things about a Triple-Impact Competitor® is that he or she always tries to learn more and improve. We call that having a "Teachable Spirit." ? People often stop learning because they don't want to look foolish when they try a new skill. But the really foolish person is the one who stops learning. ? WAG is a word that helps us remember to keep learning no matter what happens. W is for Watch. You can learn a lot just by watching carefully. If your teammates know how to do something, watch to see how they do it. ? A is for Ask. Many people are afraid to ask questions because they think it makes them look stupid. But the opposite is true. It's smart to ask questions! ? G is for Get coaching. Ask if a coach or teammate will teach and coach you until you learn how to do something.
