(almost) everything you need to know!















Happy New Year BLUE!!!

I hope everyone had a Hat Trick kinda Holiday!

My name is Liss and I am the incoming Regional Coordinator for 337

…but more on that later… lets talk about fun stuff!!

                                      EARLY BIRD REGISTRATION RUNS

JANUARY 5th- FEBRUARY 5th!!

Get in while the gettings good!

 And YAY for the beginning of another awesome year!

I am so happy that we will be able to have a spring season!

Speaking of Early Bird…lets talk fees…gross, I know…Sorry!

As many of you who were with us this past year know, our numbers are not what they used to be..and the world being what it is certainly did not help! Unfortunately, we still have to pay our lease, mowers, field stripers, trash and toilet services. I’ve had to raise fees just a bit. Early Bird special is $75, after Feb 5th the fee moves to $90.

BUT!! I see this as an exciting opportunity for some super fun

FUNd raisers!!

Car washes, concessions, movie nights, bring-a-friend week, and 337 swag…just to name a few!!

That brings me to my next point…

SPONSORS!!!...WHERE YA AT?!

If you own a small local business, or a BIG one for that matter..please consider becoming a 337 sponsor! Your business will be recognized on a banner that hangs at the field as well as featured on our website, facebook and Instagram pages!

Individual families are also welcome to gift a donation to 337 and will also be recognized as a friend of 337 on a shared banner!

(All gifts can of course be written off!)

For more info please email [email protected]

 

Ok…moving on!

Our Referee shortage is no secret. Here’s the deal…Teams U12 and above are required to supply a ref at each home game ( recommended u10 and above and but I wont get my hopes up!)

WE NEED REFEREES!!!

Please don’t be intimidated! If you have even just a little soccer knowledge, you can TOTALLY ref! just register online as a volunteer and signup as a referee!

(just a heads up, there is a background check)

Once all that is done, you will go thru some online training and then a few hours on the field!

You can “practice” during preseason scrimmages so that you don’t walk on cold on game day!

Please think about becoming 337 referee…we would all be so appreciative!

 

Speaking of games…

LETS TALK ABOUT THE NEW KITS!!!

Uniforms will now be ordered thru Soccer.com and shipped directly to YOU! BOOM!!

No more coaches having to keep up with dozens of sizes!

No more having to track down, find and meet up with coaches!

It a WIN/WIN!!

Your kiddo will receive 2 shirts…1 Royal Blue and 1 Red

(ps, RED is our NEW HOME COLOR…it looks SHARP!)

*They will also need the Royal Blue shorts and socks…

You’ll get all 4 pcs for right around $30!

Your team may will also have the option to buy matching ball bags!

( Stay tuned for more on all this once teams are formed!)

*In order to foster a STRONG sense of 337 PRIDE and LEAGUE LOYALTY, as well as a STRONG sense of community and recognition, I want to STRONGLY ENCOURAGE every player to wear their full kit on game days (Blue or red jersey, blue shorts and socks)

 

Almost done…and thanks for sticking with me this far!

AYSO National is rolling out a new more “phone friendly” way to register!

Ill have more on this (hopefully) Thursday…so watch for that!

 

I will soon be reaching out (read: begging) for coaches, assistant coaches, REFEREES,

 board members, and FUNd raisers!!

 

SO PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE….

Tell everyone you know! Your family, your friends, your neighbors, your dog, your UPS man, your waitress, your bank teller, your barista , your cashier, your ZOOM meeting…

TELL EVERYONE!!!

 Lets do everything we can to show North Knox, Fountain City, Halls, Gibbs, and Corryton that 337 is still alive and KICKING!! Im so excited about this season and seeing all these kids out on the fields again!

                                                       And now…Here’s the boring stuff…sorry!

                                                         As I said way up there

My Name is Liss Hackworth and I am the New incoming Regional Coordinator for AYSO Area 337. If you’ve been around the fields in the last couple years, you may know me as the loud girl coach with the u12 boys teams. I started coaching at 337 when my now 11 yr old was playing u6. We both moved up to u8, u10, u12, and now this spring u14. In addition to becoming RC, I will be joining the coaching staff at Gresham Middle School this spring, where my son will also play. I have also volunTOLD my husband to come aboard as my assistant. He will be handling the website, any registration problems, and field maintenance.

I started playing soccer at AYSO Area 775 in Pennsylvania in third grade. I continued to play thru high school and a little in college. All three of my boys have played AYSO, as did my husband when he was young.

I have coached for a total of 8 yrs so there is so much more for me to learn! I am assisting an indoor team this winter and am excited about all I can learn from those coaches!

I love AYSO, I love the game, I Love 337. Kelly has done an amazing job and I’m excited to continue what she has worked hard for! Please be patient this season as I figure out what in the world I’m doing…it will be a process!

Here’s to the Spring 2021 season! Its going to be amazing

Go BLUE (and red) and Go 337!!
