CiTY Newsletter - November 1, 2021
Happy November! As CiTY's fall season comes to a close and we look ahead to the winter season, we also find ourselves in the midst of the holidays. For us, this means another CiTY Season of Giving is on the horizon, and while we are fortunate to have our community's support year-round, this is the time that we give an extra push to make sure we can continue our CiTY Scholarship and free CiTY Special Needs programs. Did you know that CiTY Scholarships benefit an average of 2 players per travel team, and in the past couple years has expanded to offer aid to REC players? This need-based scholarship program is essential to the well-being of our club and teams, as we uphold our mission to enable any player that makes a team and wants to play to have that opportunity. We also rely on donations to run our free Special Needs program (read below for a recap of fall), which so many of you had the opportunity to take part in the past several weeks. CiTY is a 501(c)3 and donations can be made through our website or Paypal at any time.

As our younger travel teams finish out their fall season with upcoming tournaments, our older travel teams will begin their late fall/winter season. We wish our high school players success as many of them make their way through playoffs. It is an exciting time for many CiTY families!

CiTY Spring 2022 REC registration is open and we encourage you to sign up before the holidays to take advantage of savings. See below.

The CiTY leadership team welcomes the opportunity to hear from you. Please contact any of the team listed below to give feedback, ask questions, or with any issues or concerns.

Go CiTY!

CiTY Special Needs Clinic Fall 2021

A huge THANK YOU to all of our CiTY families that participated in the CiTY Fall 2021 Special Needs Clinic. Our players, mentors, volunteers and coaches all looked forward to this special event each Friday for six weeks this fall. We finished the fall season with a fun, Halloween-themed clinic with pumpkins and costumes. Terrific memories were made as we worked together to uphold one of CiTY's core philosophies - to serve players at every level. A special thanks goes to Carmen Juliano, who pours his heart and soul into this special program; David Seaton, our Gatekeeper, and Ben Barnhart, our Matchmaker.
Planning for CiTY Spring 2022 Special Needs Clinic is already underway, and we hope to see everyone return, as well as many new faces! Player and volunteer registration will open in the coming months.

Donations are essential to keeping this important program a part of our community. CiTY is a 501(c)3 so all monetary donations are tax-deductible.
