Back to News WORKING TOGETHER FOR A GOOD CAUSE April 29, 2011 07:43 PM Evansville Soccer Club Protecting Its Soccer Facility Due to inclement weather, a lot of city parks and private facilities are flooded, which is affecting practice and games for the kids. Under these kinds of issues, the club’s kids, parents and staff in general could make a difference by serving to improve the conditions of the fields. Evansville Soccer Club took the initiative to support the city’s park (Goebel Park) to protect the facility. The club requested its boys and families to step up and help save the turf field and the park in general. The Director of coaching was there all the time coordinating the effort. ESC procedure: ESC and the city worked together to build a sand bag barrier to protect the park. ESC’s Director of coaching asked that parents and children over the age of 13 assemble after school in the south parking lot. Hundreds of people put on their sweat jackets and worked very hard to protect the park. The President of Evansville Soccer Club and the department of park and recreation in Evansville were pleased for the contribution that the kids and families put to accomplish the goal. “This is a club culture building opportunity and a platform to teach our children the importance of helping out when someone is in need.” Steve McCullough, Evansville Soccer Club’s Boys Director of Coaching said. Indiana Soccer encourages the clubs to take the initiative by requesting its members to collaborate in the restoration and/or protection of the facilities that serve as a tool for the development of the players.
