The Future of Soccer in Kensington
Once again we are unable to offer soccer in the community. Those interested in registering their children can check with executive members to be directed to a community nearby that will be offering soccer.
We are still hoping to attract a sports director to the executive – if you’re interested, please reach out to any of the executive members.
Running the soccer program takes a lot of work, a lot of effort and a lot of time. And it’s not an easy job. But they are strategies and help that are available should someone be willing to step up to the director’s position.
For example, students studying for their Bachelor of Physical Education at the University of Alberta are always looking for volunteer opportunities to further their studies – why not tap into this resource and get help setting up the teams, attracting coaches, running coach clinics, scheduling, etc? Being a director DOES NOT mean you have to do all the work yourself. It means tapping into the resources available – and the rest of the community league executive is more than willing to help you find those resources.
So if you live in Kensington and want to see your children or your neighbours’ children on the soccer field in our park, give some thought to stepping up and making a difference.
