I wanted to inform you about my new position in the club as Executive Director of Sporting CT and how this will affect my involvement in Middletown Youth Soccer and Magic. I will continue to be the Middletown Youth Soccer Director of Coaching and I will make sure we have good coaching in both Park and Rec. and on each Magic Team. We know how important all teams are for our club. Without both Park and Rec and Magic we would not have a strong club.
We will continue to provide the same programs for Park and Rec and we will keep the same age groups for Magic for the fall season. Our Magic teams and players will have the opportunity to join all clinics, camps and summer teams that will be offerred by Sporting CT. All coaches that are currenlty under Magic will continue to coach in the upcoming fall season as well. We will have coaches that will coach both Sporting and Magic teams. This will allow the coaches to find talented children and bring them up to the next level of competition.
We are working on my replacement as Magic Director and we will inform all parents when this happens. I will continue to be the Director until the end of the spring season. I want to thank all of the players, coaches and parents for the last six years. We had an unbelievable run with three Connecticut Cup wins and a fourth team that made it to the Connecticut Cup finals. We won numerous tournaments and, most importantly, we produced many great players that are now playing, not only in our club, but also in other premier teams and academies in CT.
I want to thank you for your loyalty. It was a privilege and honor to get know all of you and to work with you these past six years. If you have any concerns or questions, please feel free to contact me. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org and my cell number is 201 532-3778.

"Your children's youth sports experience will end, and it may happen suddenly. Hopefully you will not look back and think, "I wish I had enjoyed it more instead of obsessing over performance, or playing time, or the team's record." Enjoy the experience; it will end too soon."
