Thanks to High School Soccer Team
To all the players from both East Longmeadow boys and girls Freshman , J.V. and Varsity soccer teams, thank you.
As first term in-town coordinator for the East Longmeadow Youth Soccer Association, I am very appreciative of your dedication to grow the sport as displayed by your participation in our Fall Opening Day Jamboree, especially so early on a Saturday morning.
Your enthusiasm and mentoring with the kids was made evident by the smiles on the faces and ready-to-play attitude of each child when their session was over. Remember, you are as much as a soccer star to these kids as David Beckham. Great job!
To the parents of the players who attended, I can't tell you how impressed I was with the responsibility and maturity of the group as a whole. While the program was scheduled to start at 7:30 a.m., though a little sleepy eyed, more than half of the kids were there by 7 a.m. While we constantly read much about the apathy of today's teenagers I can tell you this group is special and you should all be proud of your student athletes.
Thanks again for you help. We couldn't do it without you. Good luck to all the teams this fall.
To the town, please support your high school teams. They are great representatives of East Longmeadow.
