Recreation Soccer Fall 2015 News

We are getting excited about another great season of soccer and look forward to working with your kids.  We will be forming teams this weekend and will contact you later next week once we get everything finalized.  If you have not filled out a medical waiver, we will need you to do that the first day of practice, NCYSA requires that all players have a signed (not electronic signature)waiver.  Also, if you have not paid, the deadline is August 31.  Please mail to SYSA REC PO BOX 521 Bryson City, NC 28713.

Thank you to all who volunteered to coach, Jack will be contacting you soon, as you will need you to fill out a Risk Managment form (background check) before Sept 8th.  Also, to all those who volunteered in other capacities, we appreciate your willingness to help, programs like Rec soccer cannot happen without all the help of parents and loved ones.  It takes a village to raise a child (and teach them soccer). And finally, a big thank you to all those who sponsored this season, without our sponsors, we would not be able to provide equipment, fields to play on and help those in need.

Finally, your child will need cleats, shinguards and a water bottle for practice.  We have some cleats and shinguards available (sizes vary) if you cannot get these, just email us your information and we will see how we can help.   Our first practice is Sept 8th, 5:30 at Camp Living Water.  In the event of rain, we will email or text you if practice is cancelled.  Picture day is tentatively set for September 29 and October 1 with raindates the following T, Th.   We will send out a schedule of when your child's team will take their pictures once teams and game nights are set.  

If you have any questions, please contact us at swainsoccerkids@gmail.com

Have a great weekend, see you all September 8, 5:30 at Camp Living Water.
