Kings Hammer soccer winning at regional, national stage

James Weber, jweber@communitypress.com 1:21pm EDT July 1, 2014

 

As director of women's soccer coaching at Kings Hammer Academy, which is based in Wilder, Tiffany Roberts and her fellow coaches have had a busy time of late.

Five teams competed in the recent U.S. Youth Soccer Region II championships in Beavercreek, Ohio. Roberts is listed as head coach of three of them, but she and her staff help with every team. One of them, the U17 girls team, advanced to the national championships to occur in late July in Washington, D.C.

"I see them every week," she said. "I see all of our groups at least once a week and I see as many of their games as I can. We have a great group of directors and coaches in the program. We do everything we can to be creative and stay sharp. I'm good on the defensive side and others are good at attacking."

The U17 team, coached by Jon Pickup, won games by scores of 13-0 and 5-0 in the regional tourney before losing 4-0 to a team from Iowa. The U17 squad has one of Northern Kentucky's top incoming seniors in Lauren Nemeroff (Dixie Heights) and many of Cincinnati's top players, including a good number from Oak Hills High School.

Having finished runners-up the last two years, the GU17's hope to win their first national championship in 2014. Despite not advancing from the Beavercreek tournament, the U17 team qualified by winning league play.

"They've gone the last three years," Roberts said. "Hopefully this is the year we finish first. All our teams are doing pretty well."
This includes Roberts' U16 girls, who reached the regional semifinals after outscoring opponents 11-3 in three group-stage games. They're the first Kings Hammer team to advance that far in about six years, Roberts said.
"It's been great for those teams, good competition," she said. "All but one had a chance to go through on the final day. Most of our teams go to regionals, we can't get past the group. We're usually in a group of death in that region. They all did pretty well."

Roberts also coached the U18 team that went 2-1 in group play in Beavercreek but did not advance to the playoffs. Her U14 girls had a loss and two ties in the tourney, and the U15 team, coached by Chris Black, went 1-1-1.

The five girls teams combined for three division titles in their main Premier League, and three championships in the Ohio State South Cup.

The U13 and U16 boys teams also won Ohio state championships. Kings Hammer Academy boys U13 and U16 Red teams captured State Cup championships in Ohio and Kentucky respectively.

Roberts was formerly an assistant coach at the University of Cincinnati. She played for Santa Clara, where she was an all-conference pick, helping the school to the NCAA Tournament all four of her seasons, including the 2004 national semifinals. She joined Kings Hammer while getting her Master's Degree at Xavier University.
"The sport is obviously growing, for sure. It's been interesting to watch," she said. "There is a lot of talent in this city. Kids are wanting to learn. We have a great group of parents and kids in the club."

This is obviously a fun time for anyone involved in soccer. Roberts picked Argentina to win the World Cup and is enjoying the whole tournament.
"I enjoy watching the games. It's been good for the U.S. and everyone else," she said. "Our kids are talking about it a lot and it's great competition."

 Click here to register for Super-Y 

Starting in the 2014 season the Kings Hammer Soccer Club will offer all of its players and surrounding participants the opportunity to compete in the USL Super-Y league. As a club we are excited to provide this opportunity and feel that players participating will gain experience from playing in this environment. We will offer 3 age groups for our first year; u12, u14 and u16. These teams and age groups will be set up similar to the USSF Developmental Academy whereby players play under a two year age gap. As players develop through the super-y system it is our hope that they can perform at the next level.

Founded in 1999, the Super Y-League is dedicated to the progression of future professional players. Averaging 700 teams since 2004, the Super Y-League has steered the course for development of elite clubs, players, and coaches. Affiliated with US Soccer, the Super Y-League ODP Program has opened countless doors for players to be identified for U.S. National Team Programs. The Super Y-League contains the youth academies of Major League Soccer clubs, USL PRO clubs, Premier Development League and W-League clubs.
 
Objective: The Super Y league through Kings Hammer SC will have a primary focus of player development. Academy style squad with 2 year age groups will provide a unique experience through practices and games. Players are provided with the best opportunity to achieve their potential as elite soccer players.
 
Age Groups:
U12 (players born on/after 8/1/01) this would be a combination of our current u11's and u12's,
U14 (players born on/after 8/1/99) this would be a combination of our current u13's and u14's,
U16 (players born on/after 8/1/97) this would be a combination of our current u15's and u16's.
 
Cost: $350.00 - This includes training, games, t-shirt uniform, registration and league fees. 
 
Training only option: $250.00 - Includes 6 weeks of training (2-3 training sessions per week) no games.
 
Training and Location: We would train2- 3 times per week with games typically played on a Saturday or Sunday. Training would be at Town & Country and Four Seasons Complex.
 
Schedule: The regular season will consist of 8-18 matches depending on the division and the age group. Within our region we would be looking at a 6-8 game schedule. All games are played at Neutral site locations which consist of Ft Wayne, IN; South Bend, IN; and Kalamazoo, MI. All teams would travel to these locations for matches so that travel is equally distributed. Teams should plan to travel three weekends during the season.
 
Boy's U12
Boy's U14
Boy's U16

 
Season Dates: Regular season play for the Super Y League in our region would start in June and finish in July (6 week program) or early August for youngest age groups. Games are self scheduled so this will be typical of any team in our area.
 
Rosters:USL Club pass system (18 players max per game day roster) We would have a set age group roster of 20 players per group to cover conflicts.
 
Recruiting: Teams may recruit players year round. There are no USYSA restrictions when recruiting for Super Y teams.

Kings Hammer Soccer Club Sends 5 Teams to Regionals

The first year for Kings Hammer Academy continues to be a huge success as the club will send five (5) teams to the US Youth Soccer Region II Championships in Des Moines, Iowa.

U14 KHA GIRLS RED REGIONAL RUNNER UP!
KHA U16 GIRLS RED NATIONAL FINALISTS

The U16 Girls Kings Hammer Red team, coached by Jon Pickup, were named National Finalists this past weekend in Kansas! The girls won their first two prelim games 5-1 and 2-1 then tied 2-2 in the final game. The girls faught hard through double overtime and penalty kicks in the final game.

"In a match between two National League foes, DMCV Sharks Elite (CA-S) defeated 2012 finalist Kings Hammer Academy (OH-S) in penalty kicks to win the Under-16 Girls National Championship. In the 26th minute, Kings Hammer’s Sydney Kilgore ran up the left flank and crossed to the middle of the box where Brittany Mahoney buried it to take the lead. As the clock wound down, Kings Hammer appeared to have the victory until Kirsten McBeain found the equalizer for Sharks off a cross from the right side to take the game to overtime. Kings Hammer got the upper hand two minutes into overtime when Lauren Nemeroff was able to slide her shot into the net despite being pressured by two defenders, but Natalie Saddic tied the match for the Sharks by tapping in a loose ball, and the game went to PK’s. Sharks’ keeper blocked Kings’ third attempt and the shooters were perfect from the mark to deliver Sharks the title."

Not only is this the girls second year in a row as the National Finalists but they also came away with the Fair Play Award (given to the team that all teams and administration believe is best team). It did not stop there, Katie Murray and Lauren Nemeroff made it onto the best 11 and Lauren Nemeroff was also the MVP of the whole event! 

 

                                                                    

                                     Katie Murray #2 & Lauren Nemeroff #45 Best 11                                                                                                Lauren Nemeroff #45 MVP

 

They clinched their ticket to the National Championships for the second straight year by going undefeated in USYSA National League for the second straight year. On their way to Nationals, they also happened to win another State Cup as well!  

Congratulations girls on a great season!

It is always nice to hear good feedback from our opponents especially respected clubs within the area:
 
"I am a parent of one of the girls on a Kolping team, and I just wanted to tell you that I have never seen better coached group of girls of that age ever. I was very impressed with your team, and I think sometimes people should be congratulated on a job well done. My daughter was so lost during the game she didn’t know which way to look. She is usually the scorer of the team and she was flat out intimidated."
 
"I want to let you know how impressed I was with your team’s passing today. Your girls passed the ball all over the field and did an excellent job finding open space without the ball. I have never seen a team at this age level pass the ball back to the defense on a kick off and I was very impressed. I preach passing and moving without the ball to my girls and they saw first hand today how passing can really make a difference. Those girls have a bright future if they continue their superb passing."
