Patriot varsity soccer coach Robert Hamilton said that his team will be learning throughout the season about the varsity game.
“There are only a few returning players from last years squad,” Hamilton said. “We are very athletic and have great team speed. Skill development is key for us at this point in the season. Passing accuracy and moving without the ball are also areas we will continue to focus on developing.”
The Patriots return five starters from the 2010 squad, including Nate Casey, Robert Lee, Kyle Sprague, Nick Rhino and Alexander Conner
“They will be called on to lead our young group,” Hamilton said.
In terms of the season, Hamilton said that he will look for improvement on the defensive side of the ball throughout the year.
“ How quickly we develop our ball movement and secure our defense will be something we look at,” Hamilton said. “We are inexperienced everywhere, but especially in the defensive end.”
Hamilton said that it is a difficult year to predict the league because of the merger in soccer between the Mountain and Valley and Champlain Valley conferences.
“We will work to be competitive in every game,” he said.
