Bantam Season to Start April 17

Coaches Meeting/Clinic now April 3

The first game of the Bantam Soccer season, previously scheduled to take place on April 3, will now be on Saturday April 17. This will allow us to take advantage of the additional daylight (for U-7 practices) and the (hopefully) warmer weather and also avoid a week off immediately after the first game for spring break. Those players who would have missed the first game of the season due to spring break will now be able to play. There will still be 8 games in the season which will now end on June 12.
 
If you have not yet heard from your child's coach, don't worry - there is still plenty of time! Coaches will be contacting you over the next week.
 
Also to accomodate this change, the Bantam Coaches meeting/clinic, previously scheduled for March 27, will take place at Rocky Run Middle School on Saturday April 3 (same times, 9:00-12:00, but note location change). Coaches unable to attend themselves due to spring break should arrange for an assistant coach to come in their place.
 
Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
 
Thanks,

Thanks to all of you who stepped up to volunteer for the open Boys U-6 age group coordinator - the response was great! We have now filled this position for the upcoming season.
 
Don't forget that CYA is run completely by volunteers - even though this position is full, there are many other tasks that need to be performed to ensure the program runs smoothly. If you want to help out, don't hesitate to contact me or any of the other Soccer Board members.
