Once again we can say that this was another highly successful year – the weather cooperated and we were able to start the season on time. The jamboree was awesome even with all the rain we had! The kids had a great time and we received lots of positive feedback from the coaches and parents.
We want to say another huge THANK YOU to all the volunteer coaches/assistants who helped out this year. Without you this program would not be able to run.
We did however struggle with getting enough coaches for our 22 teams. Next season will be similar to this year; it is possible that your child may be placed on a team that doesn’t have a coach. That is the reality of community sports – so if this unfortunate event occurs, we will need a parent or a couple to step up and commit to the 8 weeks in order to ensure all kids get to play. If you are willing to coach or assist in coaching, please let us know during the registration process and we’d love to get that set up.
We have two new Conveners’ that will be joining us next year, Rachel Bone and Daniel Philippe – yay! Rachel will be taking over the mini teams 5/6’s, Daniel will be taking over the smurfs 3/4 teams and Shannon and I will be hanging around for 2 more years to take care of the 7/8’s! Registration for the 2018 spring soccer season will be in March 2018! Have a wonderful summer and see you on the fields next season!
