WV Wildcats 00

Coach: Pat Mitchell     email: pat@4mitchells.com

Team Manager: Melissa Valdez   email: melissa3075@comcast.net

Level: Class 3

The West Valley Wildcats are a U12 Girls (00G) team coming off a strong season where we took second place in the Copper division, finishing just out of the top spot based on the tie-breaker.

Head Coach, Pat Mitchell, has been coaching kids for 9 years and has NSCAA Junior Level VI certification.  Assistant, Joe Valdez has CYSA Level E/D certification.  Trainer Jon van den Berg has CYSA Level D certification and 13 years experience coaching kids soccer (2-3 teams per season).

We are focused on developing a love of soccer in each and every girl and helping the girls to be successful in life by:

  • focusing on teamwork
  • building confidence and resilience
  • demonstrating the link between effort and attainment of goals

Our coaching philosophy aligns well with the format of the Positive Coaching Alliances “Double-Goal” Coach coarse, which all three coaches are certified in.

Training is focused on building a solid foundation of soccer skills and small side play where those skills can be developed and continuously evaluated.  With a favorable player-to-coach ratio, the girls get a lot of individual attention and direction.  Having fun is also a key element of all practices and games and the girls have established a great level of camaraderie.

We play fall and spring seasons in CYSA and play in about five tournaments a year.  Practices are Mondays and Wednesdays with start times adjusted based on sunset.

If your daughter was born on or after 8/1/00 and is interested in trying out for our team, please contact our manager.  We are actively looking for a girl interested in playing goalie at least one half per game.  Training will include both team training as well as dedicated goalie training.

Go Wildcats!!!
