We’re looking for kids from 5 to 19 who want to play and have fun. Two of our really big philosophies in AYSO are everyone plays and no one has to try out. And, of course, we’re definitely looking for volunteers. Help us keep those 400+ kids playing and growing this year!
You can register your kids at the following locations:
Saturday, April 12, from 12:00 – 4:00 pm at Scheel’s
Saturday, April 19, from 11:30 am – 3:30 pm at East Middle School Cafeteria
And speaking of soccer, I received the following message the other day:
Don’t know how interested you are in the Siebel Soccer Park, but it’s possible you received a solicitation in the city utility bill envelope asking for substantial contributions. They are looking for an additional $300,000 to work on a pavilion and plaza. Now, I don’t know if you’ve visited the park. If you have during the weekend soccer games it’s likely you may have had trouble finding parking. They may be building a great park but IMO that $300,000 would be better spent on more parking. What almost makes this comical is when the Sibel Soccer Committee started threatening people with tickets & towing if they parked on the outskirts of the park. They seem to have far more playing fields than their parking lots could ever accommodate.
I don’t have a dog in that hunt, but wonder if any other folks have noticed parking problems at the park.
UPDATE, April 11: Received the following message from Sandra Guynn, the chair of Neighborhood Council 4:
With regard to your post about the parking issues at the soccer park: I’m the chair of Neighborhood Council 4. The soccer park falls within our council boundaries.
Thank you to those of you who have expressed concerns about the parking problems at the soccer park. As the chair of Neighborhood Council 4, I can assure you that we too are concerned about the problems and dangers this issue presents to our neighborhood.
Our council would like to hear from you. Our next meeting is Thursday, April 24 at 6:30pm at the Heritage Baptist Church, which is located across the street from the soccer park.
If you are unable to attend, but would like to express your concerns, you may e-mail me at [email protected]

OK, folks — make a difference! Sandra, thank you for leading on this issue, and for taking the time to write.
