VIP Soccer Starts This Weekend In Central Park!

September 14, 2012 Leave a comment

From Coach Jim – see the link at the bottom for an overview of the VIP soccer program including a map of the playing field.

Dear Parents and Volunteers-
Attached please find a two-page overview of the VIP program (see link below for attachment), including links to resources to learn more.  Also included: a map of our field in Central Park.  We meet in the North Meadow on Sunday on Soccer Field B, which is right next to the handball courts at the North Meadow Recreation Center.
If walking in from the West side, you can come in at 97th street and walk along the pathways that stay closest to the 97th street Transverse Road.  You have to head North to get to the field.  You can wait until you get to the Recreation Center, in which case you have to go through the parking lot, through the breezeway, cut through the handball courts and then backtrack about fifty feet to your left.  Or, you can head North before you get to the Rec Center, go up to the first gap in the fence around the baseball and soccer fields, and then head off to your right.
Generally, if your player is nine or under, plan to come at 10 AM.  Everyone else, 11:30.  Team rosters are coming later in the week.  We have had a number of late additions, and unfortunately two of our experienced coaches have to take a leave-of-absense this year, to deal with a new baby and an apartment renovation.  Consequently I will be promoting a couple of assistant coaches, and also am looking for new people to fill in those assistant positions.
More to come!
Yours, Jim
Head Coach, VIP

I can’t believe it took me so long to put up our favorite sports leagues on Wesbites and Resources. I guess we’re so busy playing in them that I forgot about advertising them, plus I almost hate to let the cat out of the bag.

Soccer is wrapping up today, basketball season starts December 3rd, and baseball registration opens up Dec. 1st for the Spring 2012 season. See my previous posts or go to Websites and Resources for more info on all of these amazing leagues!
