Atlantic Soccer Association Informational Meeting on January 28th

Sports

January 22nd, 2015 by Jim Field

The Atlantic Soccer Association will be having an Information/Registration meeting January 28th at the high school commons from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. Team space may be limited pending numbers and availability of coaches.  There is also a U 10 team that has been formed and is still looking for a few players to fill out their team. If we have more interest in U10 we may be able to form another team.

The Atlantic Soccer Association was formed in December 2014. This is a non-profit group based in Atlantic and is focused on developing spring soccer for area youths.

It is the mission of the Atlantic Soccer Association to advance the development of local youth through the sport of soccer. We are committed to providing our participants with a fun, high quality soccer experience. The ASA’s goal is to encourage sportsmanship, love of the game, and development of players, coaches, and volunteers.

We would like to invite your player to be a part of the fun! We are now forming the 14 and 12 and under age teams to play in a spring league tentatively running from March into May. Indoor practices may start as early as February.

Our tentative game dates are as followed: 3/29, 4/11, 4/18, 4/25,(away game) 5/2 and maybe 5/9 Make Up date. We may add a few tournaments to this schedule as teams develop their individual tournament.

Coaches will develop their own practice schedules for each team.  Currently we do have quality coaches lined up to assist each team.  However, we will need more to volunteer. Our goal is to have 3 coaches per team. If you have an interest in learning to coach soccer please indicate that on the registration form attached.

The ASA Board welcomes parent volunteers! If you have fundraising experience or would like to be more involved, please contact any of the board members below:

  • Justin Williams  249-8711
  • Mark Mullin  243-1703

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Iowa coach Fran McCaffery wants ESPN color commentator Dan Dakich to apologize to Hawkeyes center Adam Woodbury for calling him “gutless” and “cowardly” during the broadcast an 82-50 loss to Wisconsin.

Dakich called out Woodbury after the center appeared to poke the eyes of Wisconsin’s Nigel Hayes and Frank Kaminsky in separate incidents Tuesday. McCaffery defended his player while blasting Dakich during the taping of his weekly radio show on Wednesday. ESPN did not immediately return a message seeking comment from Dakich.

January 22nd, 2015 by Ric Hanson

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Former Iowa and Utah head football coach Ray Nagel has died at age 87. The University of Iowa says Nagel died Jan. 15 in San Antonio. His daughter Nancy Nagel confirmed her father’s death when reached by phone Wednesday. The Los Angeles native played quarterback for UCLA and began his coaching career there as an assistant.

Nagel coached and played for the NFL’s Chicago Cardinals in 1953 and worked as an assistant coach at Oklahoma from 1954 to 1957. He was head coach at Utah from 1958 to 1965 and at Iowa from 1966 to 1970. Nagel went on to serve as athletic director at Washington State and Hawaii, executive vice president of the Los Angeles Rams and executive director of the Hula Bowl before retiring in 1995.

He was inducted into the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics Hall of Fame in 2006.
