--League website


My name is Tad Albano, and I train youth players at Elite Sports Center in Parkersburg, West Virginia as well as operate Athens Soccer Academy  I have been asking about interest in a new semi-travel, Parkersburg based soccer team that 
--Trains regularly twice/week
--Competes weekly Saturdays, so Sundays are free
--Continuously develops players over the critical ages of 6-13.

This Spring and Fall I am recruiting players for teams to play in the  Southeastern Ohio Soccer League.  The teams will be entered under the club name Parkersburg Soccer Academy, though each team will choose their respective names, (the Tigers, or Black Pearls, etc.).

The teams will be coached by experienced young coaches who share the same passion for the game and who have demonstrated the ability to improve player's performance. Tad Albano will act as the club and coaching director.  Parent assistants will be identified and their role will earn them a price reduction.

There are some unknowns at this point, but I can share what to expect from the experience.

Season Dates:
April 1--May 13--we take off Easter weekend

Team Training Schedule:
Teams will train at Dean Scott Fields, just down the road from Elite.
400 Buckeye Street, Parkersburg, WV 26101
Tuesday and Thursday evenings
March 14 16--May 16--18

Eligible Player Birth Dates:

Trying for teams in the
Under 8 2010 and 2011 birthdays
 Under 10 Girls 2009 and 2010 birthdays
Under 10 Boys 2007 and 2008 birthdays
Under 12  2005 and 2006 birthdays
if we don't have enough for separate boys and girls teams, then we will create a coed team; coed teams play against all boy teams in SOSL.

League Competition Dates: 

April 1, 8, 22, 29
May 6, 13
Optional Marietta Tournament
May 20

League Host Sites: 
SOSL has existed since 2009 with most of the matches being played in one of the three main club cities, Alexander (Albany, Ohio), Athens, and Logan.  Our club would ask for at least one and maybe two host weekends if the fields are available where we train.

Many of you who have trained at Elite know Coach Brett Mattson. I have an initial agreement from him and Coach James Liebau with whom Brett has also coached and played.  These two young men took the Under 12's and Under 14's Girls to Elite's Semifinals in January and the parents and players all agreed the pair make an inspiring and effective coaching team. In the case of more teams I may need to consider other young and aspiring candidates.
The coaches will sign a contract and be paid. The management of their performance is one of my roles.  I also will oversee the training and competition models they utilize. I am not judging them based on winning, but rather player improvement, professionalism, and parent satisfaction.

Parent Assistants can earn credit toward reducing the final cost of the season by as much as 75%, depending on the nature of the role.
--Expect $250 Total cost for the 8 week spring season; the $50 Preseason charge counts toward this amount.
--Expect an additional OPTIONAL cost for the Optional Marietta Tournament between $30 and $50 depending on number of players.

What should you do to reserve a spot to attend the first training in March?

1-- Fill out the attached form and return to Tad
2--Pay the Preregistration fee on-line or through check. (refundable if you don't play)
3--Begin the preconditioning in late February early March
4--Consider serving the team and earning a discount by applying for Team Manager or Secure a Team Sponsorship.  Other Service Opportunities may become available.
