Message from Athletic Director

It was brought to my attention that there are several groups of parents (both at the Middle School and High School levels) that are planning food events to mark the end of the soccer season on Monday 10/26.  And that they will take place on or near the soccer fields and in at least one version would include delivered pizza plus food items brought by families.
You may certainly celebrate the players post game and hand out certificates/pins/letters after your game. I will have the sound system available for use. Masks will need to be worn by players, coaches, and families as they have all season.
What cannot happen is for  a “mini-banquet” to take place after the game in the parking lot or stadium with families gathering to eat and drink. If you could please let you parents know that this can not take place I would appreciate it.
If players/coaches would like to gather for pizza and individual drinks that is fine, but Recent COVID-19 positive cases at Penn Manor have been linked to social gatherings that resulted in several students needing to quarantine and we do not want to see that happen as a result of a gathering at Comet.

10/26

There will be no games after Monday, 10/26. Immediately following the Monday, October 26th home game , there will be a short ceremony for the JV and Varsity players and the coaches. This will take place around 5:45 pm in the soccer stadium.  Please join us in recognizing the hard work and accomplishments of the PMBS players and coaches during the 2020 Season. If you have any questions, please contact Bob Bookmiller, Booster Club President, at rbookmiller17551@gmail.com

Training

Since we cannot get together this week, players are expected to train on their own.

Players should find a wall and pass and receive 500x with their right foot and 500x with their left foot. One and two touch passing should be the focus. This should be done every day.

Complete one interval training session every other day and 3 different Coerver drills every day. Spend 10 minutes on each skill. (See below)
