Recreation Program News and Notes:
My name is Obaid. After 6yrs of volunteering to coach and serving on the recreation committee, I was nominated and voted in to coordinate our recreation program for the 2021 and 2022 seasons. My passion runs deep for youth sports, specifically soccer and giving back to our community. Like you, I too am anxious to be back on the sidelines but foremost to see our kids off their devices, smiles on their faces and enjoying a sunny day on the pitch. The last 10 months has been a surreal experience but it has also brought so much appreciation for all that our community offers.
Foremost – none of what we do is possible without volunteerism. Yes, it’s a sacrifice to be a team parent-helper, assistant coach or taking on the responsibility of a head coach. It’s just difficult to make the time, find the patience and commit. I’m reminded of a quote that reads, “One day you’ll wake up and there will be no one left to take to practice.”
We have a finite number of days to enjoy our kid’s journey thru developing as young women and men, on and off the sport fields – then they’re off on their own explorations. I recall the *one* coach that had a lasting impression on me simply by her example and not so much her words. Her compassion to simply be by my side silently when I was down, then celebrating my successes of all varying categories with me passionately as though it were hers. Sometimes that’s all our kids need…
As we head into the 2021 season, there are still unknowns but we are more encouraged for this season than 2020. Your volunteer parents on the recreation committee is focused on delivering a season to you that is in accordance with the State, County and City safety recommendations. Safety and sensibility is our primary concern. We are also working on what our season may look like in late summer to early fall. Again, we’re encouraged that with the various phases of the vaccine roll-out our environment as a whole will be safe and we’ll be cleared by the State to return to play.
With that said – we need you. The soccer community is nothing without parent volunteers to coach and help us in the recreation committee. As of now our most urgent need is just one more parent to help us in the recreation committee. Please message me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re interested.
To our coaches – thank you! Thank you for coaching in years past. Please look for registration notification to go out in the coming weeks. Please sign-up again and help us have a season. Let’s do this together, in a responsible and safe manner to bring back soccer to our fields.
