SPARKS INDOOR WINTER TRAINING 2014-2015
SOCCER ZONE (LET'S PLAY)
The Michigan Fire Juniors has a nationally recognized Technical Training Program which was featured as part of the NSCAA ten best practices last January in Philadelphia, PA at their Annual Convention.
Technical skills are the foundation of every player's future, and players simply can NOT touch the ball too often. Most American players do not spend enough time on these necessary skills in team practice or individually on their own, and consequently are often unable to play at the speed the game demands as they advance. Ball Mastery, or Technical Precision is a life-long journey of making the ball do exactly what the player needs under increasing pressure and at every increasing speeds, yet it is the most fundamental and foundational part of every players "tools"

Dear Fire Parents & Players
Welcome to our new MFJ Families and an extended appreciation to our returning families for your continued loyalty and support for our growing Michigan Fire Juniors ‘football’ program!
I would also like to thank everyone for your warm welcome to the MFJ soccer club, THANK YOU! I am excited to have been given this wonderful opportunity to oversee all soccer operations and guide YOUR club to becoming a more professionally run and proud organization. I am equally excited for the opportunity to work with Brian Roberts, Larry Sunderland and Jamie Lyons from Chicago Fire to strengthen and build your club “The Fire Way”.
We had a wonderful start to our season with a successful and efficient tryout process. We are sitting very healthy with 25 boys and 25 girls’ teams.
Our MFJ preseason training for both our girls and boys was also very successful giving our coaches the chance to work with the newly formed teams wrapping up both weeks with a club BBQ and fun games for all to enjoy! We ended preseason at the Quaker Invitational tournament where we gained much recognition and support from the Chicago Fire. With the support of CF we have been able to work on Player Identification programs and already have had multiple boys and girls players (u13-u17) invited to attend the Chicago Fire id Camp. These camps are designed to help the Fire identify players (from within our affiliates – MI, KY, IN, FL, AL, WI) to play at the next level. Our players were treated like professionals from the moment of check-in, housing set up, training session/topics, evaluations and team building activities. Staff (from all Fire club including MFJ Directors) worked alongside one another to help identify players to represent the Chicago Fire at the Disney event in November for the girls and boys teams.
We also celebrated a successful Inaugural Golf Outing a couple of weekends ago! Thank you to everyone who sponsored and attended this fun-filled event. It was a huge success raising money for those who are less fortunate, enabling them to play this beautiful game.
A few housekeeping items:
- Winter schedules are being worked on and will be shared once completed. Premier, DA and MRL teams will train at Soccer Zone. All select teams looking to train during the winter will be hearing from your respective coaches.
- Uniforms look awesome! With the cold weather around the corner to please think of our club colors when purchasing your cold weather gear. If you have bought already not to worry.
- Next season we will need players to wear Red under red game gear, white under white game gear and blue or black under the blue training gear.
I want to thank you all for your patience with our new uniform change.
Our fields are lined and cut with care! They look awesome! A special thanks to our families who help us with our concessions. Thank you!
I look forward to sharing our success together as we move forward together.
Dress warm! See you folks on the fields!
Yours in Soccer
