Youth soccer history in Batesville

(Continued)

BATESVILLE —

The Batesville Soccer Club is governed by an executive Board of Directors, along with numerous volunteers for committee positions. The Executive Board meets monthly, and Batesville Soccer Club is a non-profit 501c corporation, reserving funds for capital projects and the maintenance of affordable player fees. The fundraising efforts are primarily through sponsorships, concession sales, support from the Kiwanis and the end of year tournament. Batesville Soccer Club partners with the Kiwanis to promote the Batesville Applefest, through the sales of raffle tickets, and our Concession stand has reciprocal agreements with other area soccer clubs to help raise funds for each club through the sale of "treat tickets" to provide snacks for players after each game.

The Batesville Soccer Club Charter exemplifies the commitment of the Board of Directors, Coaches and Volunteers to promoting youth soccer in Batesville. It states in part, "The Batesville Soccer Club was formed as an organization where children could learn and play soccer. The fact that any size player can be successful at the game, and the modest expense required to field a team, makes it possible for many children to participate in organized competition. These factors, plus the enthusiasm of the children once they’ve played the game, will result in the growth of our program. It is our function to provide guidance and instruction for new participants, an organizational structure to form leagues and schedule games, and proscribe rules and regulations that will ensure safe, enjoyable and fair competition. To win at any cost is contradictory to the basic objectives of the Soccer Association for Youth to which we subscribe. Stacking teams, try-out camps, all-star powerhouses, etc. may produce a climate of excellence for the talented few, but will not in the long run be beneficial to the vast majority of young people involved."
