Letter: Thank you for a great fall soccer season

The Kaneland Youth Soccer Organization (KYSO) thanks the soccer community for its help in making a great fall 2013 season.

KYSO is a volunteer organization bringing recreational youth soccer to boys and girls ages 4 to 17, with nearly 300 players participating on 32 teams. Our coaches, volunteers, parents, sponsors, referees and trainers make this happen and are the key to the kids’ success and enjoyment of the game of soccer.

A special thanks to sponsors and community organizations for their support, including Kaneland School District, Sugar Grove Park District, RichWrap, Wireless Zone, The Elburn Herald, Hill’s Country Store, Hair Cuttery, Eddie Gaedel Grill and Pub, TeqWorks, ShoDeen Homes, American Tree & Turf, Paisano’s, Genesis Orthopedics, Rush Copley, Convenient Care, Spring Bluff Nursery, White & Ekker, Jimmy John’s Gourmet Sandwiches, Elburn Auto Repair, Mill Creek Dental and Dick’s Sporting Goods.

This fall, KYSO also piloted a player and coach development program utilizing college level players and expanded coach curriculum. These efforts are designed to expose our players to additional skills, and support our volunteer coaches. The league took valuable lessons from this program and looks forward to expanding the program for the spring season.

KYSO is looking forward to starting the spring season in April 2014, and will begin registering players in January at www.kanelandyouthsoccer.com.
