Dear Area Soccer Coaches,
The 2012 Jacket Jamboree is scheduled for February 11, 2012 (Weather date is 2/18/2012). This is just a few months away, but it is time to sent out invitations to the event for this year. The Jacket Jamboree is NOT a tournament by design. The Jamboree does not keep score or standings. This allows coaches to try players in different positions as well as experiment a little. The only request is that every eligible player that attends the Jamboree be able to play at some point in the day. Over the years, the jamboree has proven to be a great preseason tune up for teams.
Attached is a registration form for the event. The cost this year is going to be $85.00 per team if you register before 12/10/2011, $100 if your registration is postmarked after 12/10/2011. (However, if this date is a problem for you, please contact me, we can work something out.)
The 2012 event will be held at the beautiful Brooklet Recreation Soccer fields in downtown Brooklet. This will allow us to be able to have 3 concurrent games running at one time.
For 2012, the event is limited to 9 boys and 9 girls teams (first come first served) so be sure to register early. About 20 teams are being invited.
Each team will play 4 games (about 35min each) with a bye session. The games will alternate boy/girls so as to give teams about 45min between games.
The first games will start at 9:00, with the last games ending by 6:00pm. Teams that have to travel long distances will be given their ‘bye’ at either the beginning or end of the day to assist with travel needs.
Each game will be officiated by 2 officials (that is what the registration fee pays for).
It our sincere hope that you will have your team involved. It truly is a great day of soccer.
If you have any questions please feel free to email me at [ mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org ]email@example.com (this is a new email for me for those who have played in the past) or you can give me a call at 912-618-0425.
