US Youth Soccer Recognizes

RYSC Player As National

"Player of the Month"

 

 

POM Page Header

Each month, we will be recognizing one male and one female US Youth Soccer Player of the Month, presented by Sports Authority, whose accomplishments on and off the field stick out among the rest.
The players who are selected will represent a balance of athletic achievement, sportsmanship and citizenship.
 
Examples of these athletes' characteristics include:
- Impactful or notable in-game performance
- Displays good sportsmanship and the promotion of teamwork
- Community service
- Superior academic achievement
- Overcoming personal obstacles
  
While great performances in the game of soccer are appreciated, it's important to note that accomplishments off the field are valued just as much as those achieved on the field. 

 

 

Wyatt from East Bank, W.V.Wyatt WEB

Wyatt has always been very active in his community while taking on many volunteer and fundraising programs. He has raised money for Jump Rope for Hearts the last three years and finished strong last year with more than 150 jumps. He takes great pride is his position at school this year, where he walks the preschool children from the bus drop-off area to their class. Last year, he accomplished a mastery level of 4 on the West Virginia Educational Standards Test in the categories of reading and mathematics. Wyatt has also accomplished a perfect attendance for the first five years of his academic career and is very proud of this goal. On the soccer field, he always looks for players that are open to give them the opportunity to score and enjoys playing defense just as much as striker. He is a team player and enjoys making his teammates smile.

 

 

 

  Kick-A-Thon Is Successful in Raising Much Needed Funds

A message from our Board:

RYSC Parents,

We are frequently reminded that we have some of the best parents around – these past two seasons have once again proved this.  As you may know, we started the Spring 2016 season with very little funds and a lot to purchase before the start of the Fall 2016 season.  We kicked butt in fundraising and donations to be able to run the season and purchase the required goals, nets and a new lawn mower for the DuPont City fields.  We started the Fall 2016 season with new rules, new age matrix, and new requirements.  Our parents have worked with us to do what we needed to do with team changes, age matrix moves, field modifications, etc.  Our fundraising effort this season (i.e. Kick-A-Thon) brought in approximately $1,900 which will be put toward the purchase an aerator, spreader and seed for the DuPont City and Walker fields as well as a much needed lawn mower for the Walker field. 

 When beginning the Kick-A-Thon, the Board voted to award the top earner in two divisions (U5 to U8 AND U9 to U12) a $30 gift card to the place of their choosing.  Therefore, the RYSC Board would like to recognize the top Kick-A-Thon earners:

  • For the U5 through U8 age divisions, we would like to recognize Ryan Harvey of the Mutiny for raising $70.00.
  • The U9-U12 age divisions had several players raising over $100 each and for that we are very grateful.  The top earner and winner of the gift card in this division is Tori Blankenship of the Chaos with $448.00 donated.

We hope everyone is having a great season and sincerely thank you for everything you do to help our club promote soccer in our immediate area and all of Eastern Kanawha County.

    End of the Year Extravaganza

. . . a Success !!


Players, Parents, and Fans,

If you missed the year-end party because you thought it was going to rain, well . . . it did.  But, we "weathered" the storm and, despite some issues with generators and the blow-ups, we pressed on.   The hot dogs were hot and very good, as were the cookies, and we had plenty to go around.  

 

No one was hit by falling tree limbs or flying trash cans, we managed to keep our tents on the ground, and the kids had a great time playing in the water and mud. 

 

I think it was a success considering all we endured. 

 

PS-  Here is a pic, taken from Wal-Mart @ Quincy, of the storm over our fields.  Now we know why the limbs were falling and the trash cans were flying. 

 

Memorable night at RYSC !

   

 

 

 

 

Next Scheduled Board Meeting

** WINTER BREAK **

The next scheduled RYSC Board of Directors meeting will be held on - Monday, January 16th,  2017 @ 6:00 pm Belle Town Hall. These meetings are open to the public and we encourage everyone to attend.
