Soccer Season Preview

March 15, 2014
By KCS Staff

The third and final sport of the Hawaii Sports Fellowship League is underway, as our boys and girls soccer (7 vs. 7) teams kick off their season tomorrow with their first game.

Mr. Seria, coach of both teams, looks forward to implementing skills reinforced during practices in upcoming games. Although our teams do not have the benefit of practicing on an open field, Mr. Seria is using the spaces available on campus to build tactical skills. He is emphasizing "possession ball," running drills to build confidence in the fundamentals of passing and dribbling.

As well as working on skills, Mr. Seria seeks to increase students’ knowledge of the game through strategy and "playing smart." His goal is for the teams to play a strong defensive game, allowing the defense to create plays for the offense. On the field, players are challenged to become more aware of spacing to create scoring opportunities.

Throughout the first week of practice, Mr. Seria has sensed an excitement amongst his players. He feels that the returning players are learning from last year and everyone is trying hard. Go, KCS!
