Yesterday evening an unfortunate event happened at the Charles Town U-10 fields. A repaired goal came apart during warm-ups. Fortunately no one was injured. Thank you to Lisa Blankenship, Mike Hanscom, Sarah Smith, and other coaches for handling the situation.
Effective immediately, JCYSL will no longer repair goals. The Region will purchase replacements for those goals in need of repair. Repairing the goals are placing a liability on Region and is risking the safety of all JCYSL’s members.
The Region will be voting on Monday to purchase a set of U-10 goals for the Charles Town fields. It will take about 10 days for the goals to be delivered. Once those arrive volunteers will be needed to assemble the goals. Until then we will be 1 goal short for practices. Coaches, I am asking that you rotate evenings between the 3 goals until the replacements are delivered.
Lastly, coaches please do a goal check before your practices and games. If the goal is questionable, do not practice on it and notify your Division Director. For game days, please notify a board member of the issue.
We appreciate your cooperation and attention to the matter.
