Parents and Athletes,
Congratulations on being a part of the Olathe South Soccer program this year! I am very excited to actually have a spring season this year 😊 I am Melissa (Miller) Stoker, and I am the head coach for the girls’ soccer program here at South. I have been coaching at Olathe South for 16 year and 32 season between the girls and boys programs. This is my 3rd year as the girls head coach, and I have loved every minute of it. If you ever need to contact me, you can email me at Mdstoker@olatheschools.org. I am very fortunate to have 3 great assistant coaches. My assist Varsity coach is Bayli Schmitt (email@example.com). The JV coach is Corbin Warner (firstname.lastname@example.org), and the C-team coach is Stephanie Dupree (email@example.com). Below you will find some very important information about this upcoming season.
This year, the Booster Club president is Amber Grant. She helps me with many things throughout the season including the budget, organizing team parents, and getting out information to players and parents. We will be looking for a team parent for each of the teams. If you are interested please contact Amber at firstname.lastname@example.org. The team parent will work closely with Amber and help organize team treat bags for games, team dinners, and answers any questions parents may have.
The team dues for each athlete is $100 dollars. This allows us to get new uniforms and apparel for the program each year. In the past 2 years we have gotten new warm-ups, bags, and uniforms. Your dues will also get each player a program t-shirt and game socks which they will get to keep both. Dues should be paid by April 1st.
Parents and players have the opportunity to purchase spirit wear for the 2021 soccer season. There are many awesome choices this year and we are excited to see everyone represent the girls’ soccer program! The first dead line to order spirit wear is March 17th. The second deadline will be March 26th. Happy shopping!

In the Olathe School District we have the privilege of having an athletic trainer on staff for the athletes to use. Cooper Sax is the athletic trainer for Olathe South this year. The girls will need to see him first if they have any injury concerns. If he thinks they need to see a doctor, he will refer them. His email address is email@example.com if you ever need to contact him.
I have attached the Parent and Player expectations to this email. Players and parents, please thoroughly read those expectation. I expect both parents and athletes to follow these expectations at every game. The coaches, athletes, and referees are all doing their best. Positive cheering is always appreciated!
I have also attached the schedule for the 3 teams this season. We are a “United” team, and want all teams so be supported!
Below you will find the new Olathe South athletic website. Scores, pictures, and rosters will all be posted on the website. We encourage parents and players to visit the website to see how all the teams are doing.
If you are interested, you can follow the soccer program on social media. I regularly post fun things that are happening with our teams. 😊
I am so excited to get this season started, and to have to girls finally get to play some high school soccer!
Please do not hesitate to reach out if you have any questions!
