Welcome to Instructional 2 - Fall Soccer

Hi all,

Welcome to Indian Hill Instructional 2 Fall soccer! I'm Mike Herrel and I'll be the head coach for your team this year. DJ Pedrick is the assistant coach. We are both very excited to coach the team this year. Our top two goals for your child are to learn more about soccer and to HAVE FUN!

Our practices will be from 6:30pm-7:30pm on Thursdays this season. Our first practice will be Thursday, August 29. I would like to have a quick parent meeting at the end of our first practice to go over a few things.

Our games will be on Saturday mornings at 9am or 10am. Our first game is on Saturday, September 7.

Each child will need to wear shin guards for practice and games. Each child should also bring a size 3 ball to each practice.

Uniforms will be available after Labor Day...stay tuned. I'll also setup an online sign-up sheet for snacks/drinks for the games. More info to come.

If you have any questions or concerns before our first practice please email me (, or call/text me (513-288-0908).

Great first game
by posted 09/08/2019

Hi all,

I just wanted to send a quick note to say how proud I was of everyone on the team yesterday. I know it was tough to have to sit on the sideline for so long when they weren't in the game. However, the team was cheering on their teammates from the bench which was FANTASTIC! And I will work on a better subsitution pattern so that there is more rotation and less consecutive time on the bench.

In case your child didn't tell you, we held a vote before the game and our team name is the Killer Whales. Great idea from Juliana!

I did pick up a Jurassic Park water bottle that someone left. I will bring it to practice Thursday.

Uniforms, First game, & Booster Bash
by posted 09/06/2019

Our uniforms are IN! Our team color is black and I will bring the uniforms to the game tomorrow. I have black jerseys, black shorts and black socks to pass out. I'll be at the field by 8:30. Please try to be at the field by 8:45 so you can collect your uniform and we can have enough time to get organized for the game.

Our assistant coach DJ Pedrick will not be at the game so I could use someone's assistance keeping our players on the bench watching and cheering while I am coaching and making subs. Let me know if you can help.

The game will be on the same fields that we practice on. Looks like perfect weather tomorrow morning.

Please let me know if you will NOT be able to make the game so I can adjust the lineup accordingly.



We are excited to welcome the younger soccer players to join the players on the field for pre-game activities and to meet the coaches. 
All players who wear their team jersey, will receive free admission.
Food trucks from Marty’s Waffles and Tin Man Grill (Tacos) will be onsite during JV and Varsity games, so great food too!
  • IH Girls Soccer Booster Bash, Wednesday, September 11th vs. Mariemont

If you'd like more information, please let me know and I can forward it to you.
