P.S. On a personal note...in terms of our win-loss record, the season was a disappointment...but if you ask my daughter Jenna about her senior season she would say it was a total win. She got to play some great soccer along side some of her best friends...priceless!
CONGRATULATIONS FROSH SOPH
Congratulations to the Frosh/Soph Girl's who captured the
over Pacifica HS in an exciting PK shootout.
Team practices are being held on a regular basis at 2:00 pm, make every effort to arrive on time, bring water, a properly inflated soccer ball, shin guards are required, and wear a white t-shirt. Varsity will be at Harper, JV and Frosh/Soph will be at the practice field behind the stadium.
Download our Program Guidelines and both parents and players read them to make sure you and your daughter understand the commitment she has made to the Newport Harbor Girl's Soccer Program. If there are questions about the meaning of the guidelines again email Larry Draluck. Remember there is a picture that is much more important than soccer and that is the picture of life!
Our season schedule can be downloaded on your right. Keep in mind there may be changes from time to time so keep checking in with your coach. The calendar for the program has been updated.
NOT MAKING IT - THE TRUE CHALLENGE
By Anson Dorrance

States National Team Coach
If you make a team, that is great. But if you don't, you get to demonstrate how determined, strong and noble you are. Rather than blame politics, or become devastated when your continual success hits a hurdle, take personal responsibility and use a setback to recover and refocus. You weren't selected, so you can begin to figure out ways to improve. You can resolve to come back next time, and be better. Ask yourself what your weak areas are, and because of this bump in the road, you will give yourself a chance to improve them.
Whether you're chosen or not, you're going to win, because there are wonderful victories in both cases. In fact, I think the higher-level individual can triumph greater in not being selected, because the strength to take responsibility and recommit, or the strength to accept that our best was eclipsed by someone else's best, is a more powerful statement of character than just making the team. Through adversity, you can grow more as a person, and a part of the growth can be a decision on whom you have decided to become as a player.
