Sacred Hearts School
We are thrilled to announce that Sacred Hearts School is exploring the possibility of participating in the annual Fall Middle School soccer league for the first time ever! There has been a some talk about this in past years and now it is time to bring the idea to fruition. Thank you to all the students and parents that have voiced their interest and support! Mr. Pettis and I have collaborated with parents Bryan Reynolds and Marcel Philippe to provide this offering for our middle school age boys and girls this fall. Mr. Reynolds would be the boys coach and Mr. Philippe would be the girls coach. Both have extensive experience coaching with the Haverhill Youth Soccer Travel program and are currently with two of our city's G8 (7th & 8th grade) teams.
Coach Reynolds/Philippe will assist in learning and cultivating the rules and fundamentals of the game, while integrating fun and teamwork, which btoh are paramount.
