It goes without saying that these are challenging and trying times for everyone. With basic health and well-being being paramount, we at Blau Weiss Gottschee recognize that soccer, while sorely missed, can be low on the priority list. At the same time, we also understand what a large part of the players’ and families’ lives it is and will continue to be. BW Gottschee is fully committed to continue delivering its programs of high-quality player development and soccer excellence. Our mission has not and will not change: To play a significant role in the development of our children into successful adults through the positive challenges and experiences of soccer.
We are ready and able to do our “soccer part” but some of the difficulties ahead are beyond our control. The coronavirus crisis has created great financial stress for individuals, families, and organizations alike. For BW Gottschee, we already faced a significant hurdle with the loss of our home field at Juniper Valley Park to construction, and the subsequent substantial rental costs for a replacement. Now, with all city projects delayed due to the virus, our costs will only grow, further draining club resources and depleting monies that in better times are used to scholarship players. Gottschee strives to give every player an opportunity to play, including those who may not be able to afford to.
We are asking for your generous support to help us continue to carry out our mission for all- especially important at this difficult time. Donations will be used to directly fund the player support programs and field infrastructure that make Gottschee Soccer possible.
Our children are facing challenges and uncertainty ahead; our program and activities can provide them with a positive focus and structure that will help get back to their normal lives. We know from many years’ experience that the very traits that attract many people to Gottschee- dedication, commitment, perseverance, loyalty - traits that Blau Weiss players develop early on and carry throughout their lives, are what will carry our Gottschee family past the incredible challenges we face and well into the future.
