I do want inform you of another exciting development. We have been in discussions with the volunteer Santa Fe Adult Soccer League to take over responsibility for organizing and administering their summer leagues. Initially we are looking at a one year agreement to make sure that it works for both organizations, but we see a lot of synergies. Our vision is to create a “cradle to the grave” club concept, so that as players graduate from the Northern youth program they have a natural progression to continue to play soccer as an adult. Furthermore, it provides a forum for those parents who have been watching their kids have all the fun to be able to start playing some soccer themselves – which expands the number of adult players. In return, Northern gets access to 450+ adults who may be interested in sharing their soccer knowledge and experience with Northern players as coaches. We still have to work through some of the details, but we expect this arrangement to start in Janauray – well before the Adult Leagues start in April.
