Dear Editor,

Recently the Glenwood Springs City Council considered eliminating some of its youth recreation programs due to budgetary constraints. Wisely, they were able to find a way to maintain these programs.

However, this discussion caused concern and confusion for families involved with the Glenwood Springs Soccer Club’s youth soccer program. I would like to take this opportunity to alleviate these concerns and to inform the community at large that our youth soccer league is a club activity and is not financially supported by the city of Glenwood Springs. This outstanding soccer program relies on strong volunteer support, corporate and individual sponsorships, and collaboration with the city of Glenwood Springs and Colorado Mountain College.

The Glenwood Springs Soccer Club is a nonprofit organization with the mission to enrich the children of the Glenwood Springs area through the game of soccer. The club provides playing opportunities for approximately 300 area children and is always in need of volunteers and sponsors.

I hope this clears up any confusion concerning the soccer club’s organization, financing, and the strong future of youth soccer in Glenwood Springs. The club anticipates growth in our youth soccer programs for many years to come. For more club information or questions please call 948-6091.

Brad Knott
