Snoqualmie Valley Soccer needs your help

The Snoqualmie Valley Youth Soccer Association (SnVYSA) will be holding its Annual General Meeting (AGM) on Jan. 14 at Fall City Elementary School at 6 p.m. This is a very important meeting as one of the decisions to be made is the future of soccer in Snoqualmie Valley.
   SnVYSA is comprised of 6 soccer clubs encompassing all levels of play from in-house recreational leagues to the Washington State Youth League. We have 13 volunteer board positions, 200+ volunteer coaches and 2,242 players.
   Two of the 13 board positions have been open for one or more seasons with existing board members taking on the additional responsibilities in order for soccer to move forward. Several more positions will be open effective the AGM.
   The positions presently open include vice president of competition, association registrar, Carnation Club representative, Snoqualmie Club representative. Other areas of need include Webmaster, referee coordinator, press/communications coordinator, and grant writer.
   Each year the number of players grows by leaps and bounds. Unfortunately, the same is not true of the number of volunteers. If soccer is going to continue to exist in Snoqualmie Valley, these positions need to be filled.
   We need the support and enthusiasm of everyone from Duvall to North Bend. Please find the time to attend the meeting on Jan. 14 and find it within your heart and busy schedules get involved with the youth of our community. You can make a difference in the lives of all the great kids in our Valley.
   It takes a lot of volunteers to pull off a youth sports program. Come join the "behind the scenes" group of volunteers and together we can make it happen.
   For additional information please call (425) 333-4030 (press 3 to leave a message). Your call will be returned promptly. Thank you.
