Players and Coaches alike,
Happy New Year! Many reasons to celebrate, like my beloved Spurs taking 9 points out of a possible 9, while not ever playing particularly well! Still above Chelsea and in the top 4... hope we can stay there.
Just wanted to start out January with an optimistic blog post. OYSA's Olympic Development Programs have new relationships with the Portland Timbers (boys) and the Portland Rain (girls). Training is going well and the teams are looking to compete against the other states in the Region in 2 weeks time at the Region IV ODP Championships in Arizona.
We are looking forward to an exciting year of soccer with the Timbers and the Rain. The Timbers first home game in the new stadium will be on April 14 v Chicago Fire. Be there! The Rain season will be annouced in early February and look for their opener to be around Memorial Day in May. Please check out these links to their respective websites and cheer them both on this year!
