Commissioner's Notes

We started with excessive heat waves and end bundled up on a frosty morning. That is Fall sports in the AV. Week 10 is here and with it our regular Fall program comes to a close. By the time the final whistle blows Saturday afternoon it will be the conclusion of over 900 matches. 130 Quartz Hill teams participating, with 70 teams from other Regions joining in the fun with one or more inter-region games.

I want to thank our Volunteer Coaches and Referees, without whom these kids would not get this experience. I want to thank the parents for supporting the volunteers and the players. We've seen great sportsmanship displayed in the vast majority of games. I want to thank our board for the countless hours spent supporting the volunteers, the players and the program. Last, but not least, I want to thank the players for all their hard work, their competitiveness, their sportsmanship and their desire to play this game we love.

There are still Regional Tournaments, Area and Section championships, All-Stars and Tournament teams for some of our players. To those we wish good luck. For those ending their Fall Season this weekend, we hope you had a great time and will return to AYSO in future seasons.   

Thank you, and enjoy Match Week 10!


Eric Dilger
Regional Commissioner

Volunteer of the Week

Sofia C.: Sofia works with her dad to run the Snack Tent at Joe Walker. Her Saturdays start early and finish with the final games. She regularly staffs the Snack Tent while her dad also coaches and referees. Her dedication and commitment, and her always cheerful mood, provide a real service to our Region. Thank you Sofia!!!

Board Member of the Week

Robert Contreras: Coach, Referee, Board Member, but more importantly, father of Sofia and Andrew and the Husband of our late dear friend Sandra. Robert has continued his work with the Region and he and Sofia have been dedicated to continuing a family tradition of running the snack bar for the region. Their days start before 7 and end as the final games end. Robert also coaches his 12U Stingrays and Referees, and Sofia can be found working the tent almost every Saturday. Sandra was an amazing woman who gave so much to AYSO and we are sure she would be very proud of her family.
