A CRY FOR HELP FROM THE ROCKLAND USC

Vision (Canada) - - La Une - -Fran­cis Ra­cine

“We’re loo­king for the town to sup­port us, as we have sup­por­ted it.”

John Cle­ments, Pre­sident of the Rockland Uni­ted Soc­cer Club, ut­te­red a plea on De­cem­ber 12. The Club is in dire need of vo­lun­teers and exe­cu­tive mem­bers. “If we don’t have en­ough exe­cu­tive mem­bers and vo­lun­teers by Ja­nua­ry 4, we will have to take dras­tic mea­sures,” ex­plai­ned Cle­ments.

These mea­sures, ac­cor­ding to the Pre­sident, would in­clude on­ly of­fe­ring a re­crea­tio­nal league. The Club was es­ta­bli­shed near­ly 25 years ago and boasts more than 500 players, of­fe­ring Rockland and area a com­pe­ti­tive league and house league as well as soc­cer de­ve­lop­ment. The Pre­sident stres­sed that the lack of vo­lun­teers has for­ced the club to be reac­tio­na­ry. Cle­ments stres­sed that the club of­fers a lo­wer price for young players. “We charge a lot less than other places,” he ex­plai­ned. “We want our kids to play soc­cer in our com­mu­ni­ty. We don’t want them going to Ot­ta­wa or Cum­ber­land.”

As­pi­ring vo­lun­teers can con­tact the club at 613-446-2787 or vi­sit them at their of­fice, 687, Lau­rier Street.

Le Club de soc­cer est en manque de bé­né­voles.
