CiTY Newsletter - October 1, 2021
Fall is in the air and CiTY is busy! The return of the CiTY Special Needs program has been a gift to the whole community - the players, their families, and all the volunteers that it takes to run it. Our younger CiTY travel teams are finding success in league play, while our older teams are gearing up with some scrimmages and practices for the start of their travel season when high school soccer wraps up at the end of the month. CiTY REC's biggest season yet is at the halfway point, and registrations are already coming in for Spring 2022!

The CiTY leadership team continues to be ready and willing to receive all feedback, answer questions, and address any issues or concerns, so don't hesitate to reach out.

Go CiTY!

CiTY Special Needs Fall 2021

CITY offers a FREE program for children with physical, intellectual and emotional disabilities to learn soccer skills in a safe, supportive and fun environment. Our goal is to enable young athletes with disabilities to become valued and successful members of the Ellicott City Soccer family.

Registered participants will enjoy a free 5-6 week soccer clinic specifically designed and adapted to fit age and ability level. Each participant will have a CiTY volunteer mentor during the clinic. Mentors will help players learn soccer skills and play in modified soccer games and activities while having fun!  

All players will receive a CiTY t-shirt. Participants should wear comfortable soccer clothing and bring a soccer ball, shin guards and water to each clinic. *Soccer balls are always available if needed.

Contact Carmen Juliano with any questions.

Please share this email and information with friends and neighbors in the community that would like to get involved in the CiTY Special Needs Program as a player or volunteer!
