Dear Hunter Soccer Club Families,
I hope that this note finds you and your families well and in great spirits as the Fall soccer season gets underway. My name is William (Bill) Manchester and this is a quick greeting to introduce myself as your new Club President. I was elected this past June and am both honored and excited to take on this role.
Before I cover my background, let me first extend a big THANK YOU to our former President, Ralph Bocchino. To follow in Ralph's footsteps is a big undertaking. He was HSC's President for the past 21 years and altogether has been a coach and Board member for nearly 30 years. His many years of service to the players and all his efforts in support of HSC will leave an indelible legacy. More than anyone, Ralph helped transform HSC into one of the largest and most popular youth soccer clubs in Eastern Montgomery County. So again, thank you Ralph for your many years of leadership and for staying on as our new Chairman of the Board.
I want to provide you with a brief background of my experience in the Hunter organization. I served as Chair of the Fundraising & Marketing Committee. I also coached my daughter's travel team when she was with HSC and now currently coach my son's team, the U13 Dragons.
As your new President, I will serve the club with the upmost enthusiasm and commitment to HSC's mission and values. I intend to make improvements when necessary, in order to ensure that HSC provides a great soccer experience to boys and girls of all ages and skill levels.
Please be sure to check our website and Twitter feed often for club news and updates. I also encourage you to attend our monthly General Meetings, which take place on the first Thursday of each month. These meetings provide a great opportunity to meet with the club's leadership and participate in open discussions. We likewise welcome your questions and/or concerns concerning club matters. HSC's parents and volunteers are a vital part of the club's success. We strongly encourage your involvement!
I look forward to seeing you and your families on our HSC soccer fields this Fall.
