Soccer is played in almost all weather conditions. Because of our relatively short playing season and inability to make-up most games, we try to stay on schedule whenever possible. But safety is still priority one.
The problem is this: everyone has a different opinion as to what is a threatening weather condition. Michigan State Youth Soccer Association (MSYSA), the governing body, to which we are a member, has established the guidelines below to follow during adverse weather conditions.
In 2011 the Huron Valley Soccer Club (HVSC) invited the Michigan Jaguar's to offer their Junior Jaguar's and Select soccer programs to our famalies. The Michigan Jaguar's core values and provern programs are a natural fit for HVSC. Today we offer "The Best Soccer for Every One at Every Level".The addition of the Michigan Jaguars has given or families more choices while maintaining our small town, family valued club.
The Huron Valley Jaguars are pleased to announce the appointment of Scott Emert as Technical Director for their travel recreation and select youth soccer programs.
The Huron Valley Jaguars, a local affiliate of the Michigan Jaguars FC, offer a wide array of options for players ages 4 to 18 with programs available for players of all experience levels.
Scott will be working with both the Huron Valley Jaguars Travel Recreation Program and overseeing the Huron Valley Jaguars Select Teams. As part of the transition, the Travel Recreation Program will also be taking on the Jaguars name.
Paul Tinnion, Director of Coaching for the Michigan Jaguars, believes the move will help push the Huron Valley Jaguars to the next level. "Scott has a great passion for the game and youth soccer in general. That matched with his extensive knowledge of the game should really be a winning combination," Tinnion said. "The appointment of Scott as Technical Director should translate into more competitive teams and a strong youth development base."
Rich Hale, President of the Huron Valley Jaguars stated, “The Huron Valley area is very fortunate to be able to draw upon Scott’s vast experience in soccer and his ability to work with all ages and levels of players. Knowing that Scott is a product of the Huron Valley Soccer Club makes it even more special that he’ll be overseeing our programs.”
Scott brings with him an impressive resume, both playing and coaching at the highest competitive levels. Emert played college soccer locally at Madonna University before advancing to the professional level with the Delaware Wizards and the Detroit Rockers. His coaching career includes experience with Waza East, the Michigan Jaguars, and the Delaware Olympic Development Program. "Of all the levels of soccer I have played, it all started here in Huron Valley. It is great to come back and work with the club that started my career. I have strong local ties and a passion for Michigan Youth Soccer," Scott said. "I am very excited for the opportunity to help the Huron Valley Jaguars achieve a higher level of growth and development for their players and programs."
Scott hits the ground running as tryouts take place this weekend at the Huron Valley Soccer Complex. Tryout information is available on the Michigan Jaguars website at www.michiganjaguars.org/tryouts. "I can't wait," Scott said. "I am really looking forward to tryouts."
HVSC will be holding its annual meeting and elections for expiring officers on Tuesday, June 18th at 9pm. Our meeting location is the Comeback Inn in Highland. Please let us know if you’re planning on attending so we can make the necessary arrangements with the management at the Comeback Inn.
