Folks, another week is almost in the books and it’s been another week of extraordinary progress. I still can’t believe it. Often, people say, why is it you love this community so much? How and why? Well, let me provide a couple examples:
- We are the beneficiary of our first league sponsor: BARODA PIZZA owned and operated by Mr. Sam Singh. He has seen the progress and has sponsored our league with a sizable gift and for it we are tremendously grateful. Soon, we will have his sponsorship recognized at our facility. Please visit his business as many times as you can and buy as many pizzas as you can. Their address is:
Baroda Pizza Company
9691 Cleveland Ave
Baroda, MI 49101
They provide dine-in, curbside pickup, and delivery for specialty pizzas that include the Baroda Pizza House Special, Tandoori Chicken Pasta, Delights of India, Mexican Pizza, and traditional favorites such as Pepperoni, Sausage, Veggie, etc. Baroda Pizza is SWM Rec’s choice for a gameday slice.
- They say there’s this referee shortage and we’ll be lucky to have one for games. To that our SWM Rec community says ‘What referee shortage?’ have you seen our list of referees? Incredible. There was a need and our community delivered, resoundingly. Not to say we couldn’t use a few more, but shoot, we’re ahead of the curve!
- Several had voiced their thoughts on providing a Coach and Player Curriculum for each age group, and BAM! Coach U and it’s weekly newsletter. Charisma and Coach Jeni Tyler have come up with some nice guidance for each age group.
- No volunteers? That hasn’t been our issue, we’ve had the best volunteer participation I’d seen us have. So much so, we’ve been having trouble finding jobs for folks to do.
- Coach shortage? Ha, our community has stepped up to the tune of 70+ coaches!
I mean the list is endless and I could go on forever. The point that I am trying to make is that we do truly have the best folks in Michigan! Now, of course, there are areas we can improve upon, like PARKING (and leaving people room to exit on the gravel), better volunteer coordination, the uniform delay saga, and the like but all in all, one can’t help but stand back and see what a gem we have in our league. SWM Rec, I love you. Thank you for being so awesome.
Fall Season Highlight: For this one, it’s just a note of my appreciation to all of you for joining our league. You’ve made it special. #bestcommunityever
