We had a good opportunity to get everyone in and to see everyone play tonight, but that’s the positive takeaway. Like every team right now we have work to do, but we knew that coming in. Limited practice tomorrow and then the games that count begin on Saturday. Games at 9am and 12:30, in Muscatine. Thanks to those of you who bundled up and came out to watch…we heard you!
This year, the coaching staff has determined that players will be placed on teams with an effort on balancing the total roster of players, without sacrificing (potential) success. To do this players have been practicing together, and will scrimmage one last time to give the staff a last look. Our effort is to make sure that players with similar skill and talent levels are playing together. After this Saturday, the team rosters will be finalized, but moves can still be made down the road, as needed. Scrimmage start times are 9am, 10am, and 11am; they will en at 10:30, 11:30, and 12:30, respectively. The overlaps will be used to allow the next group to warmup, while the previous group is finishing their scrimmage.
The following link has the players and their respective scrimmage groups listed. Because we are still evaluating, we may ask players that are teetering between teams, to stay and play during a second session.
