Dear Parents,
We will be holding the last registration session in 2016 this Saturday, 12/10/16 from 9a- 11a at our fields.
Please stop by to register and save $35.00 per player.

Trophy & Yearbook Availability

Dear Family,
Many have been wondering about the Trophy and Yearbook availability.
The yearbooks are in print now and will be available after Thanksgiving. So to facilitate the distribution of both the trophies and yearbooks, they will be available for pick up on the Saturday of League Playoffs.  That date is Saturday, December 3, 2016. They will be distributed from the office trailer and the specific time will be communicated at a later date.
Please note that in order for these items to be handed out the coach must have submitted player ratings to their respective division coordinator. Also, trophies will be held for any player who has outstanding money due for the candy fundraiser.
Thank You for your understanding,
Oscar

Opening Day Letter

It is here once again.  The day that will start off what will be yet another great season here at NV 174 is very near.

The NV 174 Opening Day ceremonies and festivities are this coming Saturday, September 10, 2016 at our amazing Soccer Complex.

The ceremony will begin promptly at 10:00.

Parents:

  1. Take your kid(s) by the snack bar area (Home Side of Field C) no later than 9:30 to meet with their coach.
  2. The kids should be in uniform.

Coaches:

  1. Make sure to be by the snack bar area no later than 9:30
  2. Assemble your team by the snack bar by Field C. Your team will be assigned a specific spot on the field.
  3. If you have a team name, please forward that to Jennifer Low as soon as possible via email. Make sure to indicate your team number and division (I.e GU10, BU10, etc).  Her email account is Kiddoclown@aol.com.
  4. If you have an early morning game on Saturday…..Have your team arrive in time to get organized and instructed. These games MUST start on time so they finish on time. This should provide you with enough time to organize your team and be at your designated area by the snack bar for opening ceremonies.

Referees:

  1. Please make every effort to start the early games on time in order to get everyone ready for opening day ceremonies at 10:00.
  2. If running behind and it is necessary to adjust the games, please do so.

Board Members:

THANK YOU!!!  Together we did it.  You invested a lot of time, effort and patience the last 3-4 months preparing and getting all things ready.  We are a Successful Region because of each and every one of you……

Snack Bar:

The snack bar will be closed temporarily on Saturday from 9:45 – 10:30 to give everyone time to coordinate with their teams for the opening ceremony and get situated on the field.   The snack tickets , if not exchanged at the snack bar by 9:45, will be handled when the snack bar is re-opened upon completion of opening ceremonies.

I want  to Thank You everyone for your time, dedication, support and patience as we have been preparing for this day.  It takes a lot of time, effort and coordination by all involved.

I realize there was much frustration regarding the game schedule as it was delayed .   As much as we try our hardest every year to get this out sooner rather than later, there are many circumstances beyond our control that make this challenging.

The game schedule can only be completed once all teams have been established.  In order for this process to start, players need to be registered and paid as timely as possible.  The sooner the players are registered, the sooner the region can begin identifying and recruiting coaches.  Then the teams are created.  The number of teams created by division is dependent on the number of coaches that are available.  So as you can see, this is a ripple effect with many dependencies.

Again, many thanks to each and every one of you; Parents, coaches, referees, board members and youth volunteers .  Together we make a great Soccer Family and a very successful AYSO program.

May we all have a great Fall 2016 Season!

Oscar

Commissioner’s Letter

Dear North Valley 174 Soccer Family,

Thank you so much for your interest in AYSO and becoming part of a great Soccer Family here at North Valley 174.

AYSO is considered the “Biggest Soccer Club in the World”. It is going 50+ years strong since its foundation in 1965. It is a National program that serves over 500,000+ youth and their families. Fostering and continuously growing a great program like this doesn’t happen on its own. The success of our program is fueled by the efforts of great volunteers. Nationwide, AYSO is supported by 150,000+ volunteers. All positions within AYSO, all the way up to the National office, are volunteers.

You may not realize that it takes hundreds of volunteers to keep our local North Valley AYSO program flourishing.  The great volunteers that support our kids in this soccer family are found in YOU.  Without enough volunteers, we risk having to turn away players.  You can make the difference between a good program for your kids and a GREAT program.  Volunteering not only promotes a great program; it is also a good opportunity to engage with your child and to create lasting memories.
