Dear Colfax Youth Soccer Club Members,
First, we want to apologize for not having this information in front of you earlier. We know registration for the upcoming soccer season is upon us. With that said, our board in conjunction with 49er Youth Soccer League, has been working on an exciting new step for soccer in our area. Our club has made the decision to merge with Placer Hills Youth Soccer Club!
You may be asking why or how did this happen? We’ll try to do our best to explain, but would ask for your grace towards the volunteers who have committed many hours over the last couple of years to the club and this process. Amidst dwindling participation and reduced numbers the decision to have CYSC merge with PHYSC was made for the overall development of soccer within the greater Sierra Foothills area. It will not mean soccer in Colfax is no longer an option for your child. In fact it means they’ll have access to more possibilities, it may just be more complex during this transition year.
We are aware that there will be more questions or concerns, but have tried to do our best to explain the reasons for this change below. If you do have more questions even after reading the bullet points, please direct them to firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll do our best to answer them from there. We do ask that you be sensitive to airing out your frustration on social media platforms as that is not beneficial to any involved.
Benefits from this change:
● Larger pool of coaches
● Better potential for player development
● More competition
● Added depth via combined leadership of clubs
● Access to more fields
● Ability to still play on a Colfax based team with Colfax residents
Concerns from this change:
● Uniforms (CYSC will utilize its funds for its players to help obtain a PHYSC uniform this year)
● Playing in Colfax (PHYSC will do its best to form teams based on geographic location)
● Cost (The fee for PHYSC is $100 for 1st and 2nd player, $75 for 3rd (and others). LATE FEE of
$25 after June 30th. Fee breakdown: 49er United License and Insurance fee: $35; Placer Hills
League fee: $65)
