Latest Approved Revision 9.1, December 4, 2001

[11-18-2013] The Board is moving towards revising and updating our organization rules and will publish them as progress is made.

Introduction

The original intent of this booklet printed in 1984 was to keep all Franklin Youth Soccer Association (the Association) members informed regarding the organization of the program. At that time, one copy was made available to each family that was a member of the organization. Due to updating and changes to this booklet year to year, distributing and printing hundreds of copies would become quite costly. Therefore, it would seem practical to have complete and updated copies available to all board members and access to any member of the Association upon request.

You are encouraged to be active in the Association in its many capacities; as a coach, assistant coach, committee member, volunteer in any one of the many Association special functions, or as a member of the Board of Directors. This is a volunteer youth organization, and like any volunteer organization, it cannot succeed without your active participation and help. Please get involved. It is for the kids, and we need your help and support.

Thank you.
