Midway through soccer season, the Corner Canyon girls team is undefeated in region play as they look to continue their hot streak.

Head coach Krissa Reinbold has created a well-organized program in her fifth season with the team, having been there since the start. “I had coached club soccer for several years, but I had recently decided to take a break for my family. I heard about this new school opening, and I missed coaching, and with the school being so close, it was perfect to be able to manage the team and my family, so they hired me before the school even opened,” Renibold said.

Since then, Reinbold has built the team into a group of truly dedicated girls working for the team, which has clearly shown on their record. “Our biggest factor is we have a group of amazing girls that are all committed to each other, to work hard for each other. They have set goals for the season, and every day they work hard to achieve them. Our seniors are also terrific, not only as soccer players, but as examples for their teammates,” Reinbold said.

The team is currently 4-0 in region play and 8-1 overall, with their only loss coming in the preseason to Skyline. Reinbold attributes their success and future success in the season to the mindset of the team. “We have set high goals and expectations this season, and not losing sight of those will be key. Also, making sure we do not overlook any games and staying focused on the end game,” Reinbold added.

While the team is seeming to have no trouble achieving their goals so far, their goals are team oriented, not individual oriented. “We always stress that we are not individuals, we are a team, and that we will win, lose or tie as a team,” Reinbold said.

“Luckily, we also have a stream of fantastic athletes that come to our school. Not only can they play, but their work rate is second to none,” Reinbold said.

As disciplined as the team is in their pursuit of glory, Reinbold is not ignorant to burnout. “We have a well-organized team, but we try to have a lot of fun. Every Friday we theme our practices, and dress up in costumes for practice. Things like this help build relationships that strengthen us as a team, which in return helps us on the field,” Reinbold said.

It seems that the Corner Canyon girls soccer team has found the perfect balance of team dedication and fun under Coach Reinbold, and with a talented group of athletes and a perfect region record to defend, they will be a scary team to play when playoffs roll around in October.
