Hello Olmsted Families!
COME TO OUR ORGANIZATIONAL MEETING
Sunday, January 29th at 6:30pm
LIONS CLUB BUILDING in SHOPES GARDENS (4 Theodore St)
Each January, OLMSTED begins to organize for Fall soccer. It’s no small task to get these amazing 300+ kids on the fields.
As a Board member for the past three years, I will tell you that seeing those excited faces on opening day makes all the behind the scenes efforts worthwhile.
Last year was challenging as we adjusted to the many changes laid out by US Youth Soccer… primarily the restructuring of the age brackets and the sizes of the fields/teams.
THIS YEAR, we are excited for some of our own planned ‘upgrades’:
- UK soccer trainers for the RECREATIONAL LEVEL
- Private trainers for the travel level
- Joint training for U6 teams in small clinics for earlier skills acquisition
- Training clinics for recreational coaches
By far, our proudest achievement over the years is keeping costs low by depending as much as possible on volunteers.
THAT’S WHERE YOU COME IN. We need your help. We need coaches and board members and field helpers. We need fundraiser and concession stand organizers.
Your commitment can be as much or as little as you want to give.
More hands make less work for everyone.
In a dream world, we’d have coaches volunteering NOW so that by fall we are READY TO GO!
At Sunday’s meeting, we will have elections for new Board Members.
We have adopted a 2 year cycle. Keeping our officers in place for two years helps continuity.
The open positions are:
- Vice President
- Select Commissioner
- Director of Operations
Board members whose positions are not up for election are:
- Treasurer (Julie Kahler)
- Registrar (Jennifer LeKites)
- Intramural Commissioner (Dave Wright)
- U6 Commissioner (Tariq Aman)
- Compliance officer (Mindy Dunlap)
- Director of Player Development (Matt Krasja)
