Letter: PYS elects new board


To the editor,

We finished the Rec season just in time again this year. Travel season had a few bumps due to Hurricane Sandy, but both leagues finished up well. We hope that everyone enjoyed their end-of-season pizza parties (donuts for the Dino’s). Thank you to all the coaches, players, and parents who put their time in this season to make it a great one.

PYS enjoyed a nice night together at Jesse Camille’s in Naugatuck on Nov. 5. We welcomed new board members and said good-bye to others. PYS would like to say a special thank you to Jenn Andrews, Joe Canas, Matt Powanda, Ryan Smith, Jason Claiborn, and Marc Grandpre for their past years of service to the board.  We welcomed in the new board with some returning members. The PYS board is as follows: President Mike Sirowich; Vice President Jeff Varesio; Secretary Lisa Sizer; Treasurer Jim Barbarito; Travel Coordinator Dan Barrows; Rec Coordinators, Anthony Messina and Aaron Semrow; Registrar Dave Cambra, Field Coordinator Rob Phalen, Equipment Coordinator Don Mulligan, Rec Referee Coordinator Rob Phalen; Merchandise Coordinator Tracy Howson; Snack Shack Coordinator Shannon Kotsaftis.

Thank you to all of our board members and we look forward to a great year together. As you can see, we are still in need of a referee coordinator for the travel program. If you are interested, please contact me at lbing2@hotmail.com. If we do not fill this position we will need to coordinate this service through CJSA. The cost for this service is high and will affect registration fees. Remember that the board meets on the first Monday of the month at 7 p.m. at the Prospect Firehouse. All are welcome to attend these meetings.

We are currently going through a merchant account change with our website and that has delayed the registration for spring 2013. We hope to have everything up and running soon. Once it is available, previously registered players will be receiving notification via email. We will also post on our Facebook page, “Prospect Youth Soccer” and in the newspaper.

We hope that everyone had a very Happy Thanksgiving and wish you all a happy holiday season. See you in 2013.
