PROGRAM OVERVIEW

The Loomis YSC Warriors is a dedicated year-round team that will play approximately 50 games in the 2017/2018 season, including NorCal Premier fall leagues, tournaments, and formal scrimmages. We plan to play in a minimum or three Tournaments one local and two away or special tournament (if it benefits team).  We will practice 2-3 times per week with a planned yearly schedule including vacation breaks. Our home field is the Del Oro High School Stadium turf field.Our focus is on individual and team development.  Specifically, our goal is to create a competitive team in a fun and learning environment with emphasis on achieving individual and team goals.  Practice time will be devoted to both technical development (technical skills) and strategic or tactical aspects of the game.  Practice time is dedicated to learning and instruction while game time is focused on the girls playing and demonstrating their own decision making.  Each player will have individual development plans that will come together for overall team improvement. We will continue to use “home challenges” to encourage additional development outside of scheduled practice.The Loomis YSC Warriors family puts team and family bonding at the core of our program. Teams that bond and work towards common goals can achieve so much more than teams focused on individuals. Throughout the season, there will be a number of scheduled and impromptu team and family activities to bring us closer as a unit (including team snow days, swim parties, movie nights, William Jessup College Nights & Sacramento Republic events, summer camps, etc).
