Welcome to the 2019/2020 CYSC season! My name is Gerard Mullen and I am the incoming President of the club. Please join me in a profound thank you to my predecessor Lisa McGowan for her many years of service to the club, community and most importantly the children of CYSC, past and present. I am both eager and honored to have this role in the CYSC organization and look forward to working alongside the rest of the dedicated CYSC board members.
Please note: our annual meeting will take place on Tuesday, August 27 at 8pm at town hall, second floor. All members are invited to attend but it is not mandatory. All parent coaches, parent managers and trainers are REQUIRED to attend to review important procedures and other WYSL information regarding the upcoming year.
Some background about myself. Growing up in Ireland I developed a passion for the game at an early age and I have enjoyed playing competitively and for fun. I have two children playing for CYSC and I have been a CYSC parent coach for the last 3 years. A board member since the summer of 2017, I will do my very best to serve our club well.
Thanks to the dedicated board members’ time and efforts, this year’s program will run similarly to last year. Teams have been established, practice schedules are finalized, teams are assigned trainers and pre- season camp is just a few short weeks away. Each team has a parent manager, at least one parent coach and a trainer.
To keep you informed throughout the year we have Age Group coordinators that are members of the board with children playing for CYSC. Age Group Coordinators will meet regularly, share information and channel back valuable feedback throughout the year.
The CYSC Board and I are looking forward to seeing many of our players and trainers at the upcoming pre-season camp.
Thank you and I look forward to a great 2019/20 soccer season.
