|NBYSA Soccer Fee Explanation|
Parents, Coaches, and Volunteers;
We hope this finds you all well and having a wonderful summer!!
Well it’s that time again, to kickoff the Fall 2011 Soccer Registration. Registration is open on-line and we already have kids signing up for teams. In person registration will be held at the New Braunfels Library on July 16th and at the HEB Fields July 23rd and July 30th. For more details, please visit our facebook page or the NBYSA website http://nbyouthsoccer.com/ .
Please note; there has been changes in the fee structure for the older age groups who practice at the Weston Fields. The fee structure in effect for the Fall 2011 season is as follows:
· U05 - U10 playing D4 will be $90.00
· U11 - U18 playing D3 will be $115.00
· U11 - U18 playing D2 will pay $140.00
* These are per season costs.
Many of you have emailed or called with complaints about the increased fees. The board, after careful consideration, took all of that into consideration when choosing to increase the fees for the older age groups due to the additional costs for referee fees, field usage is still higher than at HEB, and without charging more for fees, there is little NBYSA can do to raise the capital necessary to improve the Weston Fields for the future.
Our goal is to improve the Weston Fields through an increased focus on maintenance and the adding of an additional field prior to the Spring Season. Many of you have been out to the Weston Fields and already know that focus needs to be given to improve the facilities and the fields. NBYSA relies on volunteers and we are in need of volunteers and assistance in this area. We currently have an opening for someone willing to step into the role of Director of Sponsorships to assist in coordinating donations, grants, and volunteers to assist with these types of projects. Without the support of volunteers, we are finding it challenging to meet the operational needs to effectively manage the daily and future operations of the association. Your assistance would be greatly valued and appreciated.
Last year NBYSA had over 660 players in the recreational program and another 250 in the Select and Academy Programs. We expect the numbers to continue to increase as we strive to bring an environment that promotes soccer play in the community. NBYSA Team of volunteers are working together to continuously improve our Recreational Program as well as the Academy and Select Programs within our community. Our goal; provide the community of New Braunfels a premier soccer program that focuses on and supports positive growth for the youth of our community. Our mission; to make a difference in a child’s life!!
Again, we are in need of coaches and volunteers in many areas of the Association and extend a warm welcome and invitation to join us in making a positive impact in the community. The board welcomes feedback, ideas, and constructive criticism...again, volunteers would be helpful too.
Kind regards, NBYSA Board
