Support the WSC

A note from Ginny, our CEO/President. Thanks for reading.

First and foremost, I want to thank you all for your patience as we navigate these tough times that COVID has thrown our way. Thank you for your patience while we adjust on the fly, trying to find safe field locations and playing times and reschedules from the rain outs. Thank you for your excitement to get back on the field. I am confident that once you stepped on the outdoor fields, you realized just how much you missed your WSC family. It is both a physical stress reliever and an emotional respite.

We have done everything we could think of to make it possible for all to play with our WSC Covid Safety Task Force’s guidance. We know COVID has affected us all differently – emotionally, financially, psychologically etc. etc. We have dropped our Fall session fees drastically to make it feasible for all to play. With that said, the WSC has taken a major financial hit in the past 6 months. We still have the same expenses, with or without full leagues being played. Believe it or not, your fees basically pay for the fields and refs. For the Corona session and the Fall session alone, the invoice is $32K and some change. This soccer organization is run by so many amazing self-less volunteers who work their tails off so we can all play. In 2021, we can not do fundraisers that have helped the WSC drastically keep fees at bay – NO High Stakes Night, NO 2021 Calendar raffle, NO Trivia Night/Raffle/Auction, NO Pub Crawls, etc… if you are able to, please support the fundraisers that we can still do – Merchandise sales **** (https://www.womenssoccerclub.com/…/…/02/MerchCatalog2020.pdf) by clicking on the link and you can send orders to me at [email protected] and I can add the fee to your WSC account and we can work out delivery.

It was also suggested to me that we simply ask – simply ask for donations from members that are financially stable and able. If you are able to, and would like to support the WSC mission and leagues, please find our DONATION link on our home page. You’ll find it by scrolling down by the photo gallery below the merch catalog. IF YOUR COMPANY IS ABLE TO DONATE – that is a wonderful option too.

Thank you in advance for your continued support and love for the WSC! We have the largest women’s soccer club (as far as I know) and what most cities don’t have and envy – an amazing network and community of women who come to play soccer year round but stay for the support received on and off the field, the friendships, their treadmill, their team/family community, their support group, their therapists and to blow off some steam after a hard day and JUST to have fun! We are looking forward to when all feel safe enough to again play year round – indoors and outdoors. I will do whatever I can within my power as our mission states, to keep this a safe and welcoming community for all women, to provide opportunities and to promote adult women’s soccer without regard to level of experience, skill level, national origin, sexual orientation, religion and socioeconomic status.

From the bottom of my heart, I am truly grateful to be a member of this club and experience it with you. I am so proud of all of you! Let the next WSC session begin and keep us safe from harm!

Thank you in advance for supporting our club and ensuring that the WSC will continue to thrive as an amazing WSC community and financially as well.
Ginny
