Hello Exeter Youth Soccer players and parents!
First off, thank you all for coming out and participating in the beautiful game this season. All of you are now well into your seasons and hopefully enjoying yourselves. This club is centered around soccer, but is really about the community; you play with your friends and you make new ones along the way. With that in mind, I encourage younger players at the recreational levels to come out to some of the soccer fields here in Exeter on the weekends and cheer on the older travel teams. Also, travel teams, don’t be so quick to leave after the game, if you have time, stay and cheer on the team coming on after you. We have age brackets all the way up to 14 years old and some of them are playing at the Junior High and High School level. Everyone likes to hear the support from their fans and a home crowd cheering them on from the sidelines. Remember this club is not just about winning, it’s about having fun and bringing a community together while doing it.
Thank you all for your support and I plan on keeping everyone informed on what is happening in the club every few weeks. Let’s consider this the first President's Corner post. If you have any questions feel free to contact me anytime.
