For the first time, WSC formed an U8 Pre-Travel team to compete in an established 4 V 4 league. The team, coached by Mike Idiokitas, played well and was very competitive in most of its games - even.though its members were new to competitive soccer. The season was an experiment for the club and one we believe was emininently successful. The skills of the players and their understanding of the game improved visibly from week-to-week. As a result we look to expand our participation in Pre-Travel leagues with both boys and girls in the fall and future seasons.
A special thanks from WSC to Mike Idiokitas, who wasn't sure what he had volunteered for but took on the responsibility of coaching the team and produced results of which we can all be proud. So, thanks to Mike and congratulations to our inaugural U8 team!
