Well, so much for the smooth flight nonsense I sent last week, we’ve got a little turbulence here. So, as Charisma (aka Coach/Director Brubaker) had communicated on August 20th, due to the ongoing labor shortage with our vendor, we are STILL waiting for those hard earned, stylish SWM Rec Soccer Uni’s.
Again, we are very very sorry for the inconvenience. We have done everything possible to have them speed up the process, but it is fully out of our hands at the moment. Until jerseys arrive, please continue to wear the uniforms as you have. Thank you again for your patience in this regard. Sincerely.
With that, and how we know how much uniforms mean for pictures this is likely to impact our scheduled photo shoot scheduled September 11th. As soon as we have confirmation on a postponement, we will let you know.
Now, enough of the turbulence talk to more of the good news I like focus on: Referees, SWM Rec Coach U, Lincoln Charter Township Fire Department Fund Raiser for 9/11.
Referees – As we noted to you in prior communication there’s a massive shortage across all sports for gameday officials. Well, thanks to some of the kind folks in our league and the partnership we have with Lakeshore’s Varsity Soccer Coach and Team, we’ll have our own referee supply. Similar to our friends over at LRF, we’ll looking to include these students in our community to help officiate games. They have my support in calling the games as they see fit and know that our community will welcome them with wide open arms. Check them out HERE.
SWM Rec Coach U – Big shout outs to Lakeshore Varsity Coach Brian Samuel, St. Joseph Junior Varsity Coach Colin Uren, Charisma, Coach Sorensen, Coach Stevens for helping the Coaches we have on staff. Additionally, we have attached the first edition of the Weekly Newsletter for Coaches. Our goal is to provide free content in future weeks, that will include links to favorite drill, games, warm-ups, etc. We want to provide our Coaching Staff with all the tools necessary help them with process of being a Coach and developing competent, stellar soccer studs.
LCT Fire Department 9/11 Fund Raiser – We are proud supporters of LCT Police and Fire Department and have partnered with both. The Fire Department is putting together a 9/11 remembrance and fundraiser event on 9/11. The department is working to raise money to build a Firefighter Memorial at our local cemetery. They will use LYSC as the location starting at 7:00pm. They plan to sell hotdogs and conclude with a firework display. Please attend if you can.
As always, I love you and couldn’t be more proud of what we have all built together. We’re fastly becoming the Rec Soccer League of choice in SW Michigan, thanks to all of you. For any questions, please reach out.
