Rockford Lutheran Soccer Families,
It is with deep regret to inform you of Crusader Nation that we won't be having a boys soccer season this year. We just have not had the numbers arrive for practices to justify being able to have a team this season. Even with the regular pattern of borrowing athletes from the other sports, we wouldn't amass a full 11 players to field a team.
That being said, what is most important is to keep these players interest in the sport growing and one way to do that is to help with the younger classes in their pursuit of playing Soccer. Coach Horn and I are extending an invitation for any of the Boys HS Soccer players, if they would like to help with Junior High Soccer (coaching and practices), or RLA Soccer (coaching or refereeing), it would be greatly appreciated - but also a good way for them to put their Service hours in for the year. Anyone interested may reach out to Coach Horn or myself or arrive for JH practice tomorrow at 3:30pm.
Again, this decision did not come easy, and we can't apologize enough for it, and with the 2023 season a full year away - the believe is that we will have an incoming contingent to ensure a full squad and get over that hump of bringing home a Regional Championship Trophy!
