Parents Social

posted Apr 8, 2015, 8:54 PM by West Islip Soccer   [ updated Apr 9, 2015, 12:28 PM ]

This past winter was a rough one and while we still do not have full spring weather yet, hopefully we are slowly getting there. Regardless, the outdoor season has started and with the Spring season comes our annual Soccer Social. Because of the timing of things and the elongated winter weather we have had, it is coming up fast and is only 3 weeks away. The date this year is Friday, May 1st from 8 PM to 12 AM.It will be held at the Hibernian Hall at 27 Locust Avenue in Babylon Village.

For those of you who do not know, this is a fundraiser our West Islip Soccer Club holds annually to help support the scholarships that we give out each year. With the help of this event, over the last decade, the club has given out over $50,000 in scholarships. It is a great program and as we all know, every little bit can help these days.

We are asking for your support of our Soccer Social. The event will be a great night out for the parents. We had a great turnout last year and are looking to make this year bigger and better! Just like last year, we are making this a theme event. It will be a "70's theme" this year. So bust out your bell bottoms, leisure suits, and disco balls, and come on down and have a great night!!!

There will be many nice items through a Chinese auction, a few major prizes being raffled off, and a very nice 50/50 as well. We would encourage you to talk to your teams, friends, and neighbors that are involved in the Soccer Club to help foster a good turnout. From the intramural parent to the travel parent, it is a great night for ALL. For you older coaches, it would be great to get the team parents together for yet one more team function. For the newer, younger coaches, perhaps a good way to get to know some of your parents and others in the club. Any way it is looked at, it is a great way to support the club, OUR club; all while helping our children and having an adult night of fun!!!

Please make the parents on your teams are aware of the upcoming Social. Further information will be posted on this website and will also follow in a subsequent email. Thank you for your support and all you do for the children of this club. Any questions, please feel free to contact Joe Farrell at 871-3899 or travel@westislipsoccer.com

Host a British Trainer

posted Mar 4, 2015, 4:37 PM by West Islip Soccer   [ updated Mar 4, 2015, 4:37 PM ]

This up and coming soccer season Challenger Sports will again be working with the West Islip Soccer Club to provide high level coaches during the spring soccer season. Their main aim is to build and develop a good relationship with the West Islip community and to make sure that each family have FUN and learn this beautiful game.

This Spring there will be 2  members of the Challenger Sports staff working in West Islip. Joining the soccer team are Tom Wiffen, 25 from England and Charlene Bell, 26 from Northern Island. Both Tom and Charlene have been working in New England over the past few years and will be their first time moving to Long Island.

As anyone who has had the pleasure of meeting a British Soccer coach or has had them teach their child, they will tell you that they are very polite and well mannered. They are also well accustomed to the American way of life after having spent previous years with many different/fun American families during their travels.

Tom and Charlene will arrive into town on Sunday March 15th and will be here in West Islip right through until the May 22nd. To help Tom and Charlene settle into the community Challenger Sports typically have their staff stay with a host family during their time with the club. This is like a substitute family for their loved ones back home and all they ask is that you provide a bed; showering facilities; laundry facilities and meals (coaches are flexible and can work round your home schedule).

At the moment they have a few host families that have been lined up in neighboring towns but they are in need of a few more to share out the season. So with this they would like to offer the opportunity for some new host families to take Tom and Charlene into their home for a short period.

So if there is anyone out there that has room for a responsible and polite British lad this would be greatly appreciated. You wouldn't have to host for the entire period, perhaps 1-2 weeks to help break up the season.

Thank you for taking the time to consider this and if you are interested and want to find out more information then please contact Matt Bowman at mbowman@challengersports.com or call 401-213-0466.
