BOARD MATTER
Supervisor Linda Smyth

Kingsley Soccer Team

Mr. Chairman:

On November 12, 2005, the Kingsley Commons Soccer Club, in its first year, won the Little River Soccer Club recreational league divisional title. The soccer program was inspired to promote teamwork and provide after school recreational opportunities for teenagers at the Kingsley Complex.

The team was comprised of youth from different backgrounds and lacked chemistry as they had never played together before. At the beginning of the season, the team had trouble scoring but towards the end of the season the team was scoring almost 5 goals a game. Along with their soccer skills, the team also progressed on with their academic skills as members of the soccer team were required to take part in the Computer Learning Centers Partnership (CLCP) homework club for homework help.

Furthermore, the teams' effort was advanced due to the support of the residents from the Kingsley Commons and Park apartments; Jefferson Village LLP who paid for the uniforms, shoes and other team expenses; Fairfax County Community and Recreation Services as well as other community partners.

This community effort is truly commendable and noteworthy. Therefore, I would appreciate the Board's support in inviting the Kingsley Soccer Team and the community to be recognized for their commitment and dedication to athletics.
