Dear Coaches,

So sorry this is behind reaching you, it's been a crazy summer!  We would like to have all of you or your assistant or a representative from your team meet this Saturday Augus 12th at 9am at Heritage park near the play area. We will be having a coaches meeting, lining all fields then distributing your coaches bags.  This will also be the day to sign up for practice fields, practice times and picture times.  

We really need as many as possible to make quick work of field lining. We had hoped to hire this out but it could not be arranged so we are relying on your assistance to be ready for the season. The more hands on deck the faster it will get done.  There are 4 primary locations that must be lined so once we have folks assembled some will be sent off to various locations to work on those fields.

 

Thank you so much for volunteering you time and energy to coaching our kids this fall, we cannot so it without you!

If you have watched your child's match and had to watch the coaches act as the referees, it is because we need more referees.  If you are interested in becoming a referee, registration is now open for our clinic on May 13th.

We do not have a defined "minimum age".  However, we prefer that kids be at least 12 years old.  This is primarily due to the reading level of the Laws of the Game and the written exam at the end of the class.  We would also love to have more adult-age referees.  This is a great opportunity for a "parent and child" bonding experience.

If interested, please register for the clinic on the WASRC website right away.  This clinic is now posted and available for registration to anyone statewide and class space is limited.

Thank you,

Chad Burton
