Calling all members:


We are need of fan support for our last league1 home game at St. Joan of Arc on Saturday September 27, 2014 at 7pm and our last home CUP game at St. Joan of Arc on Saturday October 4, 2014 at 7pm.


Both games are very important to Vaughan Soccer. A win in our League1 last home game will guarantee that we will be still fighting for the top positions in the standings and a win at the home Cup game would guarantee that we would be moving on to the next round of Cup competition.


We need our Vaughan youth players to walk in with the players and game official at the beginning of the game. We also need youth players to be ball retrievers during the game. Coaches, please contact Tony DePalma directly!


Thanks,

Tony De Palma and Carmine Isacco

New park coming to Vaughan - North Maple Regional Park - UPDATE! http://vaughansoccer.com/soccerclub/index.php?option=com_k2&view=item&id=1026:new-park-coming-to-vaughan-north-maple-regional-park-update&Itemid=301 http://vaughansoccer.com/soccerclub/index.php?option=com_k2&view=item&id=1026:new-park-coming-to-vaughan-north-maple-regional-park-update&Itemid=301 New park coming to Vaughan - North Maple Regional Park - UPDATE!

On Wednesday, the16th of January 2013 Vaughan Soccer Club called upon it's membership to attend a meeting at City Hall. The City of Vaughan was reviewing facilities being 'considered' for the new park coming to Vaughan - North Maple Regional Park. We needed to ensure the City of Vaughan is aware of the needs of Vaughan Soccer and our soccer community... as you know we have a shortage of quality soccer pitches in Vaughan.

 

On September 10th we received a written update from Councillor Marilyn Iafrate [Ward 1] regarding the new field. Please see below:


---  Letter ---

Dear Mr. Bartolomeo:

I am writing this letter to provide you and your club with some exciting news that came out of this week's final Council meeting.


After many years of patience and waiting on your part, Vaughan Council approved $300,000 to be used immediately to begin the design work of Phase 1 of the North Maple Park plan. The design work will include the necessary roads, parking, trails and two artificial turf fields.


The design work will be done over the winter and in the interim, City staff has been instructed to bring forward the construction costs for the two turf fields in the 2015 Capitai Budget. Although funding for the first turf field has been in a reserve account for many years, I spent some time researching and analyzing funding sources for a second turf field. Given my success in finding those funds, Council agreed to add the second turf field to the Phase 1 project.


It is important for Vaughan Soccer Club that these two fields move forward quickly in the planning process in order to provide much needed space to grow and deliver current programs. I hope that you will continue to support the Phase 1 plans for the North Maple Park. It is very important for you and your members to come out in January of 2015 to show support for the funding of the two
turf fields.


Respectfully,

Marilyn Iafrate | Councillor, Ward 1 | Maple/Kleinburg

--- end of letter ---

 

Stay posted we will keep you updated! Dates and more details to follow.

Members, last night at the VSC Clubhouse located at 11151 Keele Street - Map. Our very own John Fidalgo [Outdoor Recreational VP] agreed to accept the 'Challenge' from technical trainer Serg DeLuca and took the ICE BUCKET CHALLENGE! He and others braved the chilly water for an amazing cause!


Here's what that looked like:

We wanted to let our membership know that YOU TOO CAN participate at this weekend's upcoming Soccerfest! It is sure to be a weekend filled with excitement! Bring a relative, colleague or friend, we are trying to reach out and get as many members as we can to attend this annual community and club event!


This weekend: AT the Vaughan SOCCERFEST we are going to have a section set up for our members to come to the trailer to accept this challenge... so you too can participate if you like! Each person accepting the challenge will be asked to donate $2.00 to ALS in honor of Danny Pellegrini.

Please select the appropriate team for more information:

GIRLS

BOYS


WHAT YOU NEED TO BRING AND DO:

All players attending trials are asked to bring one light and one dark jersey, and they will be notified which jersey they are to wear at the day of the trial. so it makes it easier to distinguish the players during the trial process ( and more cost effective than getting pinnies printed with numbers on them).


We need to strongly suggest that all REP players [excluding OPDL age groups] pre-register as soon as possible for the trials and that spectators are not allowed to enter the field of play but are more than welcome to watch the training session. Our technical traininng staff will be there to set up these sessions. Please be advised this is AGE SPECIFIC - NOT TEAM SPECIFIC TRYOUTS. These tryouts will be open to ALL players.
