To all in the District 7 Soccer Community:

I hope you had the best ever holiday season. Even had a chance to relax and enjoy family and friends.

Throughout last season we faced many challenges, new registration software, new US Soccer mandates and a multitude of other issues.

To the Parents and Players, there are many volunteers that spend hours, coaching, preparing fields, registering players, forming teams etc., most all of these people are volunteers make sure you thank them and let them know how much you appreciate them.

I would like to thank all the Referees, without them, games do not get played.  I would also like to thank the District 7 staff that made many of the transitions possible without too many hassles.



Looking forward to the New Year let us all remember one word “Respect”! It is

time to Respect the Game.  Respect the Players and Respect the Referees.

Soccer is a game that challenges us to get better as players, coaches and referees.  More important soccer has to be FUN.  After all is said and done ‘Soccer Is a Game!’  And we should strive to win the games but enjoy ourselves in the process.
