OCTOBER 18, 2017: COLE STREET FIELD UPDATE
Seekonk Soccer has been communicating with the Parks & Rec Department who have been working with the Seekonk DPW on the field conditions at Cole Street. More garden staples were located in the ground this past weekend by coaches and a referee. While the town continues to sweep the area with rakes and metal detectors, we are making adjustments to game schedules for the remaining two weeks of regular season play.
Fields 4A & 4B for rec (Travel Field 1) will not be used for any SYS-related rec or travel games through the end of the fall season. We ask all coaches to refrain from practicing on these fields until the town is confident all the foreign objects have been removed. As of 10/18, the field has not been formally closed but we would ask that you do not use it.
All rec games played on 4A & 4B (Travel Field 1) for the remaining two to three weeks will be rescheduled and relocated to 5A & 5B (Travel Field 3). A revised schedule for Grade 1-2 boys and girls rec games has been posted for Saturday, 10/21 only. We will work through 10/28 and any 11/4 travel games before next week and report on them separately.
We apologize for any inconvenience this situation may cause, but we are working very hard with the information being presented to us to make careful and responsible decisions about our program and the continued safety of our players on the town’s fields. If you have any further information or you see anything on the fields, please bring it to your coach or a board member’s attention. Do not throw anything away. We appreciate your cooperation and patience as we work through the remainder of the fall season.
Welcome to Seekonk Youth Soccer!
Seeking Youth Soccer (SYS) is a non-profit community based youth soccer organization. Our mission is to help develop our community’s youth through an enjoyable experience centered around the game of soccer. We believe that soccer can be used to assist in character development through good sportsmanship and teamwork and promoting healthy lifestyles through physical fitness and organized activities.
As a 100% volunteer based organization, we are truly a community driven organization. Working with children ages 5 and up, we have a number of opportunities for recreational enjoyment and competitive play at most levels.
We encourage you to utilize our website often, follow us on Facebook and volunteer as opportunities exist.
For time sensitive issues, questions, comments or concerns - please contact us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We currently have a board position open. Some positions only require a few hours of your time each month and others are more involved. If you are thinking you can help out, please stop in to one of our monthly meetings and we can discuss these opportunities in more detail.
Current board positions open include:
Responsible for developing skills of new referees, assist with training, and complete weekly schedules in-season for recreational and local travel games.
We are actively looking for a well-organized volunteer to assist our current Recreational Director for the upcoming fall season. Aided in part by the Registrar and President, this volunteer position is responsible for the coordination and oversight of our fall program.
Reminder: Seekonk Youth Soccer is 100% volunteer driven. Without volunteers we cannot possibly support all of the great programs we offer all year long.
All are welcome to attend Seekonk Youth Soccer board meetings. All meetings are be held on the first Monday of every month at the Aitken Elementary School at 7 pm. If the Monday our meeting is scheduled is a holiday, it will be held the following Monday.
