My name is Brent Forte and I am the Head Coach along with Nick Keigley for our U7 Boys team Dec-O-Art BRO77. A little about myself. I have three kids (1 boy age 7 and 2 girls under 4) and have coached boys’ soccer for 3 years with MSA. I have also played in various leagues in the Michiana area. Visit www.michianasoccer.org for field locations, you can signup to see updates and our roster, and sync the game schedule to your calendar. There also is an app you can download to track the team and schedule - SportsSignup Play Mobile App.
Here is some basic information about our season.
Team #: BRO77
Head Coach: Brent Forte Email:
Asst Coach: Nick Keigley Email:
Practice Location & Time: MSA Fields 10601 Cleveland Road. Granger, IN 46530 each Wednesday from 6:30pm to 7:30pm on Black 1 field, starting Apr 14th.
First Game: Sat Apr 17th 10:15am Black 1 field.
Team Picture: MSA will announce schedule in 1-2 weeks.
Snack Info: (We will provide a snack schedule later this week). We ask parents to bring a half-time and end of game snack. Snacks should be nutritious to eat (grapes, orange slices, fruit snacks, and a drink). If necessary, please make arrangements to trade with another parent and I can update the schedule. Remember: A game without a snack is a long game.
What to Bring to Practices & Games:
Medical Release Form: (Please turn it into the coach at our first practice). You can download it from michianasoccer.org and I will also bring extras to the 1st practice.
Cleats & Shin Guards are required
Soccer Ball Size: 3 or 4. Likely we will use size 3 for actual games in the beginning, but may switch to size 4 later in the season. Players can use size 3 or 4 for all practices this year. (Every child must have one at practice)
Proper Clothing (It gets cool fast, especially once the sun sets). Coats can be worn for games, if under the jersey. No jewelry can be worn to practice or games.
Other Helpful Notes:
Please arrive 15 minutes prior to the start of each game and notify the coaches if your child will miss a game.
Rain at Practice - We will practice in a light drizzle. Call or text to confirm.
Rain at Game Time -We will play in the rain. All players are asked to show up at the field.
