Practice times and days.
Good luck, and we hope you enjoy playing soccer! If you have any questions, please contact Coach Frater at email@example.com
It was great to see so many talented past and current Varsity players on the field together today. Those of you who got blisters or decided to kick a goalpost, I hope you recover very soon.
Remember that the first semi-final of the Women's World Cup is between England and the USA, the teams ranked #3 and #1 in the world. It should be a good game. You can watch it on Wednesday 3 July from 04:00am (!!) on BS1.
Highlights of England's win over Norway can be seen below. If you watch the free kick at 0.47 seconds, you will be pleased to see that England copied Sakiko's winning goal against YIS in the AISA final in 2016.
Possibly the best goal of the tournament, a fantastic team goal by Japan against the Netherlands.
Notice the angle of the runs, and all the movement by the Japanese players without the ball. They create space and force the defenders to move out of position.

P8 W8 D0 L0 F29 A5
SOIS V 0 - 1 CA.V
SOIS V/JV 0 - 3 CA V/JV
Thanks to everyone who made the trip out to Sanda for our first game and practice after a few weeks off. Despite the loss it was a good chance to start playing again in preparation for AISA next week.
SOIS 4 - 6 Keimei HS
Goals: Keanna (3), Yulia
Thank you to everyone who made the trip and played during the holidays. Although we lost the game, there are plenty of positives to take away from today; some very good defending, good communication on the field, good support and overlapping from the full-backs, and adapting to a new style of attack based on the players available. It was good to see everyone adjusting to a new team and different conditions today, well done.
Squad for Varsity vs CA:
Over the Spring break we have the following optional practices scheduled at school, and games against Japanese high schools:
Squad vs Keimei HS:
Please bring white uniforms as well, I am not sure what colour uniform Keimei will be wearing. Below is access information to the school. Please click here to download a PDF copy.
Congratulations to the HS Girls Varsity Soccer team, who are the 2018 WJAA Champions after finishing the 7-team tournament undefeated. A special thank you to the seniors who made it possible (see photo below).
The SOIS Seniors that made this possible:
Back row, left to right: Keanna Ikeda, Suono Fujii, Hana Ikeda (vice-captain), Airu Mukaiyama
From row, left to right: Haruna Tomiguchi (captain), Elena Benfield, Ami Eldridge
Please go to the shared Google Sheets documents to sign up for games in March and April. We need more players for the games against Keimei and Sanda Shounkan HS at the end of the Spring break, otherwise I will need to cancel them.
Also, there are new games on April 7; these are Varsity and JV games against CA, and Varsity games against a Japanese HS, at Sanda. This will be the final game before AISA and the end of the season. As there is a JV game as well, we will need almost everyone to sign up if possible please.
The following players have been selected for the WJAA tournament at MC Perry HS in Iwakuni. (The AISA squad will be announced shortly, once all of the players have informed me of their availability).
Unfortunately these games are only 8-a-side, so only some of the squad can play. Other HS players are welcome to come and support if you can; you can learn a lot from watching these games.
