Ramona Soccer League’s spring season has reached its midpoint as over 450 kids and adults have already competed in four of the eight games that make up the schedule. The weather has been kind to the youth competitors, ranging in age from 4-18, as clear days and warm temperatures have contributed to the enjoyment for players and spectators alike. The adult teams, which play Sunday evenings, have also benefitted from the warm weather, especially since the adult games finish after dark under the lights.
“I just love coming out here and watching the kids play,” said RSL president Kat McKown as she took photos of a Division 4 game. “It’s amazing how much joy you can get just from watching these kids having a great time playing the sport they love.” McKown is the returning president of Ramona Soccer League and has contributed greatly to the league’s increased numbers and overall success. McKown plays in RSL’s adult league and has also been working hard to finalize a grant that will provide RSL with more field space and enable the league to expand even further.
Joining McKown in dedicating her Sundays to making sure everybody has a great time on game day is Snack Bar Manager, Monica Fait. Fait gets there early and stays late to make sure food and refreshments are available for all. “Every season we try to bring more options and treats for the players and fans,” remarks Fait. “It’s a long day, but well worth it seeing everybody have a good time while we raise some money for the league.”
RSL’s spring teams will play their fifth game next Sunday before taking two weekends off for spring break. The last game of the season will take place on Sunday, May 4.
