IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week: A wise coach once said that it’s just as tough to handle success as it is to handle failure. One current star, professional golfer Jordan Spieth, seems to understand the importance of humility in the midst of his success. When asked about the importance of humility in a recent Golf Digest article, Spieth replied by saying, “My speaking about humility is very difficult, because that wouldn’t be humility.” A student-athlete who understands this lets other people do the talking about who’s good and who’s not. Tooting your own horn can cause a problem bigger than a major traffic jam!

GHS Girls Soccer-Teaching More Than Just a Sport

Goshen High School girls soccer coach Dan Graber has been around for a few years, teaching P.E. and coaching soccer. He has a well-rounded program, that with the help of assistant coaches, runs like a well-oiled machine. From the team’s website that includes parent information in both English and Spanish, to the yearly team retreats and individual goal-setting meetings, this coaching staff gives their athletes a lot to think about. Below you will find Coach Graber’s responses to questions about his team and some pictures from this summer/fall.

(Dan Graber’s responses will be in bold.)

How long have you been coaching?

I have been the head coach at GHS for 16 years.

How has the sport changed over the years that you have been coaching?

Soccer has grown significantly across the country. In just the state of Indiana, there are now 265 high schools with girls’ soccer teams.  In general, women’s sports have experienced real growth over the past 20 years.  The success of the Women’s National soccer team and prominent stars like Mia Ham inspired many young girls to start playing soccer. Soccer is also played at a faster and stronger pace today.  Off-season expectations have increased.  Players are expected to train year round and spend a significant amount of time in the weight room.

How has your team changed?

We have much more diversity on our team today. Tactically, we moved away from a direct, kick and run team, to much more of a possession game, with a focus on defense. 

2017 JV 2017 Varsity

Will your team practice on the new, synthetic football field? How much? How important is it?

We now have a few teams in the NLC conference that will play their home soccer games on turf .  Many tournament games, including the state finals, are also played on turf.  Due to these developments we anticipate using the turf field on practices leading up to games that will be played on turf.  However, most of our regular season games continue to be played on natural grass, and any soccer coach will tell you they prefer natural grass.  A turf field significantly changes the game; the ball moves much faster and bounces at a higher rate.  Ball control and anticipation becomes extremely important. 

What are your hopes and/or expectations for this season?

Our expectations are always high.  Our goals each year are to finish top three in the NLC conference and to win a sectional title. 

What practices, traditions, or rituals might be unique to your team?

Our overnight team retreat and the alumni game are unique to only the girls’ soccer team at GHS.

Photos from the Alumni game:

How young or how experienced is your team? Does it matter?

Experience always matters. We have 13 letter winners returning this fall.  I’m excited about the leadership present in our returning group.  It’s been a busy summer and the girls have worked extremely hard.  At this point, our main focus is to stay healthy and fresh.

How do parents or community members provide support for your team?

Parents and community members volunteer time by working at home games and purchasing Goshen soccer gear.

What could people do for you if they wanted to support you and/or the team?

Three ways we appreciate support:

  1. Purchase Goshen soccer gear.  We should have a website with options available to the community.
  2. Buy some pies!  We sell homemade pies every year during the last week of August. (sorry, this fundraiser is already over!)
  3. Come to our home games! We have had a great following over the years. 
     

How have changing IHSAA soccer rules impacted the game?

The game is played at a faster and stronger pace today. Concussions and ACL injuries have been a real issue in the women’s game.  Today we focus on proper training in the weight room to help players avoid injuries, and we keep a close eye on any contact involving a player’s head. 

Do you monitor players’ yellow/red cards, and are there consequences (either IHSAA or self-imposed) that impact the team?

We are a disciplined team.  The girls have averaged one yellow card a year over the past few seasons.  As coaches we are required to keep track of all players receiving cards during the year.  A player must sit out one game after receiving 5 yellow cards or a straight red.

What does your team do for fun?

We start each season with an overnight retreat to give the girls a chance to bond and set goals for the season.  The players also take turns every week hosting team dinners at their houses. 

Photos from a team dinner:

In the past we have made trips to the dunes and scheduled a bowling dress-up party.

Photos from the overnight retreat:

    

According to one of the team moms, “The retreat is like an old-fashioned sleep over! The coaches took all of the girls’ phones when they got to the camp, so that they would focus on the team, and not be tempted to look at their phones. It really helped them to get to know each other better. They ate, played games, had individual meetings with the coaches, took a morning run, had team meetings, voted for team captains, went tubing, shared stories with each other, and just generally had a good time.”

What does your coaching staff do to try to develop students as a whole person, and not simply as athletes?

We meet with every player individually before and after the season and ask players to set goals for the year that are not just related to soccer.

Is there anything that you think is unique about coaching at GHS?

I think we are fortunate to have a great level of diversity on our teams.  One year I think we had girls representing 8 different countries on our team.  There is real value in learning from a variety of cultures and experiences.

How much do you emphasize academics to your team?

Academics are extremely important to our team.  We set a team GPA goal at the beginning of every season.  The past few seasons we have had an average team GPA of 3.5.  We also try to connect with teachers in our schools.  It’s always great to see our players make a connection with a teacher who has made a difference in their life.

How much, and how, do you emphasize good character/being a role model?

We always remind our players that they represent GHS soccer in the community and that their actions reflect our team.  We ask our players to volunteer their time with our elementary students and team camps in the summer.

How does the past success of your program impact your current team?

We have experienced some real success the past few years so we know teams are going to be out to beat us.  The success of our teams has led to us to changing our regular season schedule.  This fall we’re facing the toughest schedule we have ever had at Goshen High School.  The girls are working hard and are ready for the challenge.

You have pretty nice soccer facilities, is there still a wish list?

It’s hard to top our facilities!  It would be great to have an indoor field house where teams could play indoor soccer on turf, since we live in a state with such unpredictable weather.

How does coaching (and spending so much time away from home) impact you and your family?

Coaching is an extremely demanding profession.  Successful coaches take time away from the sport every year to re-energize.   I am also blessed with wonderful assistants who help lighten the load.  I really admire coaches who manage to balance coaching while still committing time to their families.  As a single person, I have always felt blessed to have more time to fully commit to my profession.

The coaches. Always watching.

IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week: With the new school year in full bloom and fall sports taking shape, are you doing a good job of prioritizing what your goals are for this school year? Is it different than last year? What did you learn last year that is guiding your decision making so far this year? Having been in your shoes before, and speaking on behalf of many other athletes and coaches, your order of priority, when it comes to being a successful student-athlete, should be the following: First comes the classroom and your academic progress (develop great study habits). Second, dedicate yourself to the sport you are presently playing or plan to play. Third, balance your social life and social activities (sacrifices need to be made). The student-athletes that do the best job of balancing these three different challenges have the best chance of becoming the student-athletes that teachers, high school coaches and potential college coaches admire the most!

GCS Statement on DACA

9/5/2017

GCS Statement Supporting our Students on DACA Status:

Today, President Trump announced that the DACA program will be discontinued, but also that there is a six month window that assures current DACA recipients that the earliest they could be affected is March 5, 2018. This allows the US Congress time to take official action and find a legislative solution, for which many US citizens are hoping.

GCS will continue to stand with and support all of our students, including students that have DACA status, as we always have. We will continue to provide all GCS students with an education that is excellent and world class, striving to prepare each and every one for the bright futures that they deserve.

Our desire is for all GCS Schools to be safe places for all students where they may express their hopes and fears about the world in which we live, and where they may find safety and solace in the care of loving adults and mentors. As always, if any students have concerns about any matter, we have counselors, nurses, parent liaisons, teachers, paraprofessionals, and administrators in every building that genuinely care for our students and are ready to be of assistance. Please contact any of us if there is something you would like to share.

The National Immigrant Justice Center (NIJC), which has an office in Goshen, will be hosting an informational meeting at Goshen College, held at College Mennonite Church, at 1900 S. Main Street, at 6:00 p.m. on Thursday, September 7. All Goshen residents are invited to attend.

To schedule a legal consultation with NIJC please call 312-660-1370 or email nijcild@heartlandalliance.org, or consult other immigration specialists and attorneys.

5 de septiembre de 2017

Declaración de la Corporación Escolar de Goshen apoyando a sus alumnos con estatus DACA:

Hoy, el presidente Trump anunció que el programa DACA será descontinuado y también que hay una ventana de seis meses que asegura que los receptores actuales de DACA podrían ser afectados tan pronto como el 5 de marzo de 2018. Esto permite que el congreso de los Estados Unidos tome medidas oficiales y encuentre una solución legislativa que muchos ciudadanos estadounidenses esperan.

Teacher Explores Montreal with GHS Students in Mind

After her second year of teaching French at GMS and GHS, current GHS French teacher Dru Mack started to look for possible places to for her students to visit. She was looking for a city where her students could learn more about French culture and practice their language skills. This past summer she invited her mother, Teresa Mack-a Media Specialist at Waterford, to spend a week exploring Montreal with her.

Dru’s overall impression of their trip: “This would be a wonderful city for students to experience a culture heavily influenced by both the French and the English, and practice the language. We were there for about a week, walking and exploring for hours, and we still have only scratched the surface of what the city has to offer!”

Below are pictures from their trip, along with a description from Dru.

The pictures below are from le jardin botanique. You could explore these gardens for hours! My favorite spot on the whole trip.

Below is a picture of a cafe where we stopped and had lunch. Strong Parisian atmosphere, where the menu and ordering is all done in French. The food picture is of a traditional quebecois dish called poutine – fries with gravy and cheese. A must try when in the city!

Below is a picture of le stade olympique which was built when Montreal hosted the 1976 summer Olympic games. Parts of the stadium have been turned into museums, including the biosphere and the planetarium.

Below is simply a cool street sign that caught my eye.

This picture is from inside the Notre Dame basilica, with Gorgeous Gothic architecture.

Pictured below is the Saint Lawrence river and the Montreal skyline.

Below, a typical street in old Montreal, which is where we stayed and is close to the river.

Thank you Dru, for showing GCS highlights of beautiful Montreal, and also for looking for new ways to provide educational opportunities for your students!

Montreal Quick facts

Its boroughs, many of which were once independent cities, include neighborhoods ranging from cobble-stoned, French colonial Vieux-Montréal – with the Gothic Revival Notre-Dame Basilica at its center – to bohemian Plateau.
