Welcome to the 2021 Season!

To all MHS Boys' Soccer families - welcome to the 2021 Season! Teams are formed and we are underway for the 2021 Regular Season. It is great to have all of our students back in the classroom and attending games in person for all three of our teams!

We will keep you as up to date as possible on changes and new information. If we learned one thing during this pandemic it is that we should expect our circumstances to be dynamic.


Who we are:

The Montclair High School Boys Soccer Booster Club is a group of parents who provide support and fundraising to the high school boys' soccer program. The Club is driven entirely by volunteer support. We are always looking for more volunteers (see below). The coaches and players are the heart of the program. Our role is to supplement the work of the coaches and the Athletic Department off the field and in so doing, help make the boys' soccer experience at MHS memorable. We have returned to a normal soccer schedule and plan to play a full season including County and State Tournaments. A special thank you to the parents of last year's teams who safe-guarded our season in the face of unprecedented risk. We as a parent group will continue to support the coaches and players through the work we do via the booster club. 

The coaching staff: takes care of everything that happens on the field. Every single returning coach played for or attended MHS. It is a sign of their connection and commitment to the program that they are back leading our boys. And our newest addition, Coach Mitchell, grew up in our community. Bios for each are available or will be added soon on the website:

  • Toure Weaver - Varsity head coach and overall program head coach
  • Jon Chiles - Varsity assistant coach
  • Oliver Murphy - Varsity assistant coach 
  • John Moore - Junior Varsity head coach
  • Ernest Mitchell - Freshmen head coach
  • Nicole Broderick - volunteer coach working across teams

How we communicate: We have multiple communication vehicles to get out basic info to parents as well as to create some enthusiasm about the accomplishments of our players and the teams:

  • Our website: now that the regular season has begun, we use montclairhighschoolsoccer.com for general information and important updates.
  • We posted the regular season schedule and location info for  games. Please download the App RSchool Today for schedules for all MHS sports, including Boys Soccer for Varsity, JV and Freshmen. It is the official source of truth and it updated by the MHS Athletic Department. For web access, view schedules at https://www.secconference.org/public/genie/282/school/19/. Filter by sport and team by clicking on "View Schedule" - it will load a dropdown list from which you can select specific teams.
  • Booster club email: montclairhighboyssocer@gmail.com will be used for all other basic information. We believe we have a good handle on having at least one parent email for each player. Please reply to this email if you want to add a parent or change an email address. We will send general emails, like this one, that are applicable to all teams (Varsity, JV, Freshmen) as well as team specific emails. Coach Weaver does not manage this email account although he does use us to get out broad parent focused emails. If you want to reach him directly, see his email below.
  • Coach Weaver's email: toureweaver@hotmail.com - Coach also manages the Facebook group to communicate directly with the players.
  • Instagram: montclairhighboyssoccer and Twitter: @mountiefutbol are our social media accounts and are intended to provide energy, fun and hype. Please follow them and share them with friends and family. The boys are our audience for our Instagram posts. We want to recognize their play on the pitch and shine a little light. The Twitter account will mainly be used to provide updates during games to parents and alums and to synch with the Instagram posts. It is an important tool to promote our program to the local sports media. 

Important dates: the detailed regular season calendar is posted on the website. Dates can be viewed by team by clicking on the team tab.

Volunteer opportunities: There are a number of ways parents can join in. Most require no more than an hour a week of activity. If you are interested in any of the roles below, reach out and let us know now.

  • Varsity liaison - sends email related to the varsity team, coordinates with Coach Weaver on info he wants sent, coordinates pasta parties, miscellaneous other activities. FILLED - John Caldarella
  • JV liaison - same responsibilities for JV team. FILLED - Becky Weaver
  • Freshmen liaison - same responsibilities for freshmen team. Filled - Niria Gutierrez
  • Hosting pasta parties night before games - this is a Mountie tradition that is a big hit with the boys and we are excited to reinstate it after shutting the program down due to COVID last year. Each team will host their own pasta party the night before each game. These are informal meals (paper plates) usually held in the host's back yard. The hosts provide a couple of trays of pasta, chicken cutlets, salads, and drinks. Team liaisons will secure the hosts and communicate venue details.
  • Banquet coordinator (and team) - this activity requires the most help. We need an overall lead, gift leads (gifts for players and coaches), video production lead, banquet program book, and a Senior book lead
  • Senior Night - overall lead (FILLED - Camilo Mendez), Senior book (FILLED - Laura Ledesma), Senior Gifts (FILLED - Jon Levine). We need additional volunteers to help with logistics and assorted tasks.
  • Yearbook photography liaison
  • Future executive board members - the current board is either senior parents or alumni parents. We are looking for volunteers who can step into these roles next year and for as many years into the future as possible.

Fundraising: simply put we must finance a lot of the activities that recognize the efforts of our coaches and players. These include:

  • Photography and game filming and associated equipment
  • Hosting fees for the MHS website
  • Senior Day and end of year banquet 
  • Create/Print Senior Books
  • Create/Print Yearbook
  • Purchase Senior and coaches gifts
  • Trophies and award plaques
  • Help pay assistant coaches
  • Pregame snacks for road games 
  • Practice equipment including new goals

How we raise money: Asking for money is not fun but it is necessary. We raised roughly $17,000 last year. Our big fundraisers are below and are looking to expand our fundraising efforts:

  • Merchandise sales
  • Car wash and Bake Sale - September 11, 9:00 - 3:00. George Innes Annex, 141 Park Street
  • Booster club dues - will be gathered via SportsEngine after teams have been finalized
  • General donations - will be gathered via a fundraising site
  • Banquet fees
  • Ad sales in the yearbook

We will send out more info as the season progresses.

We look forward to seeing you all this fall and helping to make this a really fun year for the boys.  

Thank you on behalf of the parents who have built this great tradition!
