Message to Club
Dear Beacon Soccer Club members,
Another fun filled season of soccer is about to kick-off and the BSC Board thought that this would be a great opportunity to provide you with some important information regarding the upcoming season.
Season Length & Game schedules:The spring ’16 season will start on Saturday, April 9th and run through Saturday, June 11th. The end of season club wide picnic is scheduled for Saturday, June 18. Players will remain on the same teams that they were assigned to in the fall. You should have heard from your child’s coach by now, If not please reach out to them directly or contact your division director (names listed on BSC webpage). We ask that you do not use the fields for practice until further notice. Your support with this is greatly appreciated!
Please note:* Games will be played on Saturday unless otherwise indicated on your teams’ schedule
* Date of In-house sponsor tournament will be announced next week
* No games have been scheduled for Saturday, May 28 (Memorial Weekend).
Schedules and other important information including updates on weather related delays and cancellations will be posted on the club website which can be located by attaching the following link into your web browser: www.beaconsoccerclub.com
Uniforms & Equipment:Please ensure that your child brings shin guards with them to every game and practice. No Shin Guards- No Play! It is also recommended that you buy your child a ball which should also be brought with them to every practice session.
Volunteerism:Beacon Soccer Club is 100% volunteer operated. We receive NO financial assistance from Beacon Recreation and the Beacon School district. As a result, we are solely responsible for conducting/ or paying for all tasks required to maintain and grow the club. For example: volunteers are at the field as early as 6.00am on Saturday morning to ensure that the fields lined, restroom facilities are clean and that the concession stand has those delicious (and very reasonably priced) breakfast sandwiches ready to go when you arrive at the field. Many of these volunteers are also the same ones who stay after the last games are played to assist with clean up and close out activities.
Well you ask...How can I help?
Great question! Thanks for asking...
The fact is that BSC is always on the look-out for new volunteers. Opportunities exist or can be created for anyone that has an interest in getting involved and making a positive impact on our club and community. Even if you only have a few minutes available, you can greatly assist by ensuring that water & sports drink bottles are properly placed in one of the many garbage receptacles that are located around the fields.
Please feel free to contact any member of the board in you have an interest in finding out more information on how you can get involved.
Parking:Beacon City School administration continues to voice concerns regarding the parking situation at Sargent School. They have kindly asked that BSC members refrain from parking in the following areas:
* Fire lanes
* Grass around Administration Building
* Parking spots designated for Superintendent of schools.
We think that this is a fair request! Please assist us in maintaining our excellent relationship with the school administration by complying with their request. Additional parking is available in the lower lots which can be accesses through the entrance route 9D entrance into Sargent School.
Thanks again for being a part of the Beacon Soccer Club. We wish you and your “soccer star” a wonderful season and look forward to seeing you at the field!
