Letter: Thinking fall soccer


letters_flatTo the editor,

It is hard to believe that the summer is coming to an end already. As I write this today, we are in the middle of an oppressive heat wave. It definitely has me thinking of cooler weather and fall soccer. We hope that you are ready for soccer (and registered) as well.

As you know, travel registration is closed. Please note that travel uniforms need to be ordered by Aug. 10. This allows for ample shipping time so that players have their uniforms prior to the start of the season. If you haven’t already registered for rec soccer you have until Aug. 9 to do so. Registration will close on Aug. 9 at midnight. To register, go to prospectsoccer.grupo.la. No late registrations will be accepted because we need time to evenly distribute the players to teams and hold our coaches training. Coaches please be sure to check our website for information about coaches meeting, scheduling, etc. We will set these dates at our next meeting.

Our fall rec season will run from Sept. 7 through Oct. 26. We will once again be taking advantage of the fields at the Pent Road Recreation Complex in Beacon Falls. These fields are in great condition and give a much needed break to the fields at Hotchkiss in Prospect. We will be at Pent Road for weeks one, three, five and seven. For weeks two, four, six and eight we will be in Prospect at Hotchkiss Park. We will also continue to offer additional training through Everson Soccer. The details of the training are almost worked out and the information will be available on our website.

Remember that PYS is run by volunteers and successful because of our volunteer coaches. Please consider volunteering your time to coach your player’s team. It’s a great experience for everyone. Also, I am stepping down as secretary of PYS. If anyone is interested in taking a more active role in PYS, this is a great way to get started. I’d be happy to discuss the details of the position with any interested parents. Please email me at lbing2@hotmail.com if you are interested.

As always, please join us on the first Monday of each month at the Prospect firehouse at 7 p.m. for our monthly meetings.
