Region 9 Coaches “This Week at the Creek”

2013 Week (8) "Week at the Creek" (10/25)


Ron Volk Awards



        Ron Volk was a Region 9 coach, Division director, Commissioner, and much more. He
        spent his time on the fields assuring that children had a place to play the game.
        His love for children drove him to each task he took on. He was diagnosed with leukemia
        which eventually took his life at a young age – and we will always miss him.

             Region 9 gives out an award that bears his name – not just a sportsmanship award – it should be regarded with the highest esteem --  even more so than a first place trophy. Ron’s gift to children continues through this award. Please consider a player on your team to receive this sportsmanship award and keep it in mind. Awards (these will not be labeled with names) will be available for you to give out in Week 11.


Premier League is starting



Premier League stresses skills and fun for players in the U7 through U19 age groups. This program is run by Region 9 and it is a low-key way to gain coaching experience and help players gain paying experience. The number and size of teams we field depends on the amount of adult support we receive. U12, U14 and U16/U19 are co-ed teams. Sorry, but Premier League does not have teams for the very youngest (U6) players. The Season will run from Jan. 11 th  through March 1st.


We are currently forming an “interest list” for coaches interested in coaching a premier team. If interested please reply to Scott Barshay with the following information:  Full Name, Division (U10B), Email and Phone Number.
