Get Going Demosphere - Irish Excursion

 

Galway, Ireland at dusk

In September, Vice President Carol Baker was lucky enough to take part in a trip to Ireland with the Keegan Theatre, a Washington D.C.-based theater company.

 

In addition to performing in cities like Cork, Kilkenny, and Galway (pictured), Carol had a chance to experience Gaelic Women's Football, Hurling, and followed Ireland's progress in the Rugby World Cup being held in New Zealand.  

 

Needless to say, Irish sport preferences and priorities are quite different from those here in the States!

ExtraTime Exclusive: Year of Extreme Weather

Drought MapWhat weather we've had this year!

In the east and southeast, Hurricane Irene and Tropical Storm Lee dumped many inches of rain in August and September.

Most of Texas has seen the hottest, driest weather since records began in 1895. The drought continues as we speak.

Nationwide, we heard many stories of organizations utilizing Demosphere's administrative tools to reschedule games and communicate with parents.

How has your organization been impacted? Were games rescheduled? Fields damaged? Let us know at extratime@demosphere.com and we can share your story on our Demosphere Blog

European Experience for Rochester's Empire United U-17 Girls   

Empire United U17G
This summer, Empire United Soccer Association's U-17 girls team from Rochester, NY took the trip of a lifetime to Barcelona, Spain that was an unforgettable soccer experience for the players.

While in Spain, the team played friendly games against high-level Spanish teams from the Barcelona area. The Spanish teams hosted a post-game social for the Empire United girls which gave them a chance to socialize with the Spanish girls, learn about their culture and the Spanish lifestyle, and share their passion for soccer.

Off the field, the team had the opportunity to take in the sights of Barcelona including Las Ramblas, La Sagrada Familia and the Nou Camp stadium, home to FC Barcelona and a natural highlight of the tour. Upon their return to the US, team manager Judy Zornow commented, "Everyone had an incredible time! They adored Clive (tour guide) - he did a great job. All the comments were extremely positive."

The trip was organized by Premier International Tours, a leader in organizing international soccer tours for youth teams. For more information on their tours and programs, and to book your team on a soccer adventure of a lifetime, visit their website at www.PremierInternationalTours.com

Hundreds of clubs currently use iSoccer including a team in Phoenix, AZ. Their coach comments, "I wondered how to create an effective practice with players of very different abilities. I found the answer in iSoccer. By separating the girls in groups of three, working in the iSoccer space and putting players of similar skill level together, I was able to teach and motivate each player."
