End of Season Banquet

Our end of season banquet is Monday, November 7 at 6:00 p.m.   It will be held at the Muskegon Area Career Tech Center, 200 Harvey, Muskgon.   It is just west of Muskegon Community College.

This banquet is to honor both the Junior Varisty and Varsity teams.   Players are required, Parents are expected and friends welcome.   There is no cost, but you MUST bring enough food for you and your guests, and a little more.   Each year are worry is that we will run out of food, but you all never fail.  

Please sign up for the dishes you want to bring at this link

Senior parents are typically responsible for decorations.   Coach Hulings is responsible for the program.

Week of October 10

NOTE #1:  WARRIOR SOCCER JACKETS

After many years of faithful service, we are pleased to retire the old Diadora soccer jackets and replace them with new Under Armour ones.  Many of the coats had become badly worn and were no longer water repellant. As well, several had gone missing over the years, meaning we did not have enough to outfit an entire team.  

We hope to use these new jackets for both the boys and girls soccer teams for many years and we need your help to pass these coats on to future teams in good condition.

You can help us by doing the following:
  1. Hang them up!  This will keep them cleaner and fresher smelling (especially after wet weather).  Do not keep them balled up in your soccer bag with your dirty socks/shoes.  At games, try to keep them off the ground and out of the mud.
  2. Spot clean with water and mild detergent.  Repeated washing will make the jackets less water repellant.  If machine washing is necessary, follow the washing instructions: cold water, wash with like colors, hang to dry, do not use bleach or softeners, & do not iron.
  3. Turn them in!  As with all uniform parts, they need to be turned in at the end of the season.  Because this has been an issue in the past, any jacket not returned will be billed $200 for a replacement.

Thank you and Go Warriors!-The Athletic Boosters


NOTE #2 - WMC community,

I realize that there are numerous different causes to give to during this season, but as an athletic department we felt it was necessary to be able to recognize the life of WMC graduate, Kevin Witte (Holland Christian teacher who tragically passed away last week), and help support his family.  
Monday's soccer games vs. Holland Christian provides us with the opportunity to do just that.  
The Witte Family loves to gather around the table to share stories and enjoy each other's company.  Their family needs this time together now more than ever.  It is our hope that as a Christian community we can RISE UP and provide some gift cards to local restaurants for their family to enjoy.  
Gift cards will be presented to their team prior to the varsity game on Monday evening and it is hope to be able to "present" some t-shirts to their soccer players to let them know they have been in our thoughts and prayers!  
Any gift cards purchased can be brought to the athletic office prior to the game on Monday.   
Thank you for thinking of the Witte family during this challenging time!

Week of September 26

NOTE:  We really need junior varsity parents to sign up for concessions during the varsity game.  As the varsity parents cover so that you can watch your student-athlete compete, they, too, need you to cover for them.   This really isn't optional.   Also, this is a major way we raise funds through the boosters and it is important that we all participate.  Please visit the sign up genius by clicking here.
