To All in District 7,

It is going to be 2021 when you get this message; what will 2021 bring? Hope is the word I would like to embrace.

For all of us, 2020 has been an extremely frustrating year, but almost all have come through this with resolve and commitments to family and friends. We have learned ways to communicate with each other, looked after neighbors and friends. Yes, it has not been easy; some families have dealt with tragedy, some have struggled for food and work, but we will get through this.

History has a way of turning the bad into good; in our soccer world, we have had a break. It’s now time to plan. Let’s try and reach out to many more children and bring them to the game in 2021. The economic situation could be stressful for many families; let us keep the affordability in check so more children than ever can play soccer.

I wish you all the best for the New Year, safety has to come first, but when we get to play again, it will be time to celebrate.
