 Special Recognition for Bob Enright

It is a pleasure to announce that Soccer RI has given a Special Adult Recognition award to Bob Enright to recognize all the time and effort he gives volunteering for the kids in RI. As many of you know (since he coaches so many teams), Bob is always willing to do whatever is necessary to allow kids to play. He coaches many teams in both Competitive and Rec. He is both the Competitive Director and Registrar for WFFSC and both of these are very demanding positions, both in time and ability. He runs special clinics such as the 1000 Touches Footskills Clinic last summer, the Footskills and Keeper clinics this winter, and the upcoming Speed and Agility clinics planned for this spring.

WFFSC is extremely fortunate to have Bob who gives so much of his time volunteering for the kids. Please congratulate Bob next time you see him and tell him thanks for all he does. Without Bob the club would not be what it is today.


SuperLiga Sportsmanship Awards

It is an honor to report that two WFFSC teams won SuperLiga Sportsmanship Awards. The teams are the U14 Rhody and U19 Classic teams with both coached by Bob Enright. Having players and coaches being recognized for their sportsmanship is truly an honor for the club. Congratulations to Bob and all the players on this award.


 WFFSC Needs Sponsors!

In order to keep fees down, the club relies on sponsors to help reduce the costs for each team. See the item in the menu on the left for additional information on sponsorship packages.

Special Recognition for Mark Laurie

It is a great honor to announce that a Special Recognition Award has been given by Soccer RI to Mark Laurie for his many years of volunteering for the kids of the club. Mark has given countless time and effort to WFFSC for many years.

Mark as many of us started at WFFSC as a coach for his kids. He started coaching over 20 years ago and now his kids are grown and they have started coaching. Mark joined the board of WFFSC about 15 years ago and has been an anchor of the board ever since.

Mark wears many hats for WFFSC. While he is the VP of the club, his biggest contributions come from being the Field Director and Referee Coordinator, both of which take significant time and effort.

When you go to Winslow and the fields look great with freshly cut grass and newly painted lines, then Mark is the one to thank. Winslow has some of the best fields in the state and all of this is attributable to Mark's dauntless commitment to the fields.

I have often heard that the position of Referee Coordinator is the most time-consuming and thankless position for a volunteer. Luckily WFFSC has had a great one in Mark for many, many years. Mark takes special pride in his refs and gives them the training and attention needed to make them the best refs possible. In addition to the training and mentoring and constant evaluating, Mark also does all the ref assignments each week for both Rec and Competitive teams. With the number of games played by WFFSC teams, this is a very time-consuming process that requires significant attention. I think we all have gotten into the mode of thinking that refs just show up ready to ref a game and sometimes forget the incredible amount of time and dedication it takes to ensure that this happens.

So it is especially pleasing to see Mark get some recognition for all that he does.

If you are at Winslow for a game and you see Mark, be sure to congratulate him and say Thanks for all the work he does to make the club the success it is.
