Met Oval Families & Community:
WE NEED YOUR HELP!!!
We reach out wishing we could all be together at Met Oval: at our field in Queens, in Long Island, in Brooklyn and on Randall’s -- anywhere and everywhere playing and watching soccer! The coaches, the team managers, the club staff -- we all miss you so much!
Not surprisingly, but still unfortunately, the Met Oval Benefit, scheduled for April 29th and to have been hosted at the amazing Brooklyn Brewery, will be rescheduled to a time that will be safer for our city and our community.
That said and for those newer to the Club, Met Oval and most nonprofits rely on these fundraisers to support the actual operations. The money is used for coach's salaries as well as maintenance of the fields (and improvements at the fields), financial aid and so many more things that make Met Oval so special. The money raised by our annual fundraiser is critical for our club to run. Met Oval invests in licensed USSF and UEFA professional coaches to ensure that all of our players receive top level coaching. This is a true investment as Met Oval does not charge our players the true cost to cover the club's operating costs, i.e we spend more on our coaching staff than we actually charge our players via the Player Fees. It is no fun to ask for money when we are all living during this anxious time with health concerns and financial stress, but we would not ask if it were not critical.
We are reaching out now specifically to ask for donations to help support our Met Oval Coaching Staff. We need to raise funds to ensure that we can support all of our coaches. Our coaches are the heart and lifeblood of the club. We hope that everyone can find a way to give what they can. Please remember that no amount is too small. If everyone in our community finds a way to contribute, the impact will be significant. Thank you so much for considering this request.
Please support our Coaches Relief Fund!
Please take care and stay safe.
With much appreciation and gratitude,
Met Oval Academy
