Chippewa Hills Fielding Boys Soccer Program in 2019
REMUS – After debuting a varsity girls soccer program three years ago, Chippewa Hills is fielding a varsity boys soccer team this fall for the first time in more than a decade.
The coaching staff has spent the early portion of the season introducing the game to many of their players, as they work to build a program at the younger levels.
While the Warriors have dropped their first six games, the focus is on looking at the bigger picture and the future.
“We’re experience-related. Wins and losses can’t matter right now,” Chippewa Hills coach Zach Ingles said. “They haven’t had soccer in 12, 13, 14 years. We have 13 kids, next year we need to get to 19. The most important thing going forward is that we have to have an identity.
“We’re so young. We’re so, we’re young. And we’re not physical. We have to find a formation. We have to figure out what we’re good at, what we’re not good at. And we’ve tried two or three of them in the first couple of games, and trying to figure out what works for us. So we’ve got to establish an identity first.”
Chippewa Hills returns to the pitch at league foe Fremont on Monday.
