Riptide announces Dec. 17 training session for 2004-born players

The Riptide have planned a Dec. 17 training session for 2004-born players.

The VIPL Marine Harvest Riptide have announced the first session for 2004-born players interested in playing for the club in 2017-2018.

“We will be running sessions on Saturday, Dec. 17, 2016 at the Vanier Turf,” said Riptide Soccer Development Co-ordinator Shel Brodsgaard.

“The boys training will be from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. and the girls training will be from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

“All training is at the Vanier Turf (rain or shine) and there will be a meeting for all parents from 11:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. inside the hockey arena. Please be advised in the event of snow we will not be running the training sessions,” Brodsgaard said.

The season does not start until September 2017, but Brodsgaard said these open trials will serve to support the team trials that will see the team selected by April 1, 2017.

“The open trials provide each player with an opportunity to play in front of Riptide coaches in an effort to be assessed. As well it allows parents the opportunity to learn more about the program,” Brodsgaard added.

 

Players born in 2005 are allowed to apply, however, confirmation of participation will be based on discussion with either the club coach or club technical director and communicated back to the individual regarding acceptance.

Coaches interested in applying for a position with either team should approach the Riptide staff during the scheduled training to communicate their interest and expect to see the coaching applications online starting in the new year online at www.riptidesoccer.ca
