Meeting Wednesday, Sep 11, to approve interim Director of Coaching position—all welcome

On behalf of the AYSA Board of Directors, I would like to welcome you all to the start of another soccer season and to update you on an important development in our organization. It is with great appreciation and admiration I announce the departure of our beloved Director of Coaches (DoC) Chris Monteiro. Coach Chris has made contributions to AYSA in ways both seen and unseen far more than I could ever enumerate. Our organization is better thanks to his work, and we wish him the very best as he moves on to future opportunities. 

The AYSA board recognizes the fundamental importance of having a DoC as the person vested with the authority, experience and skills necessary to develop our coaches and players in ways that keep AYSA’s traditions in tact for generations to come. 

The board is actively pursuing a candidate to be an interim DoC, and has begun a search for a person that can continue the legacy of Coach Chris. As such we will be vetting candidates in short order and have called a meeting on Wednesday Sept 11th to approve a contract for the interim position, based on the search committee and board’s recommendation. All registered families are encouraged to attend.

The meeting will be held from 6-8pm at Howard Johnson’s, 401 Russell St, Hadley, MA 01035. Please check back here on day of the meeting for location confirmation. 

In service,

Trevor Baptiste
