Reese Cernick will be a trailblazer.

Coupeville Middle School is launching its first-ever boys soccer team this fall, replacing a football program which was shuttered due to a lack of players.

Cernick, who has worked extensively with youth soccer programs in Central Whidbey, as both a coach and administrator, has been tabbed to lead the newest Wolf team.

His hiring as head coach will be official once approved by the school board at its Aug. 26 meeting.

CMS soccer joins cross country and volleyball, with all three fall programs kicking off practices Sept. 9.

The Wolf booters have a 10-game schedule for their inaugural season, one in which they will see the same opponents on a regular basis.

Coupeville faces Northshore Christian four times, while squaring off three times apiece with Lakewood and Granite Falls.

The first game in program history goes down Monday, Sept. 23 at home, when the Wolves welcome NSC to town.

Cernick owns and operates Whidbey Pest Control, but spends a fair amount of time around the soccer pitch.

He and wife Michelle, who will be assisting him with the CMS team, have coached U-15 coed squads for 10 seasons over a five-year period.

Before that they guided girls U-12 and U-13 programs, while also being instrumental in keeping the Central Whidbey Soccer Club operating in recent years.

Reese Cernick is the current president of CWSC, and he and his wife have three children who attend Coupeville High School – Chris, Autumn, and Aurora.

Are you a girl, born in 2007 or 2008, and want to play soccer?

Then get your parents crackin’, cause there’s just eight days left to sign up for the Central Whidbey Soccer Club spring season.

The league wants players of all ages, and talent levels, but is especially hoping for those who could play on a U12 girls team.

To field a team, CWSC needs nine players, and, as of this moment, has just four.

“If we can’t find girls by Mar. 22, we won’t have a U12 team for girls, and that is heartbreaking,” said Michelle Cernick.

Time for a little payback.

The Cernick family has contributed greatly to keep youth soccer going strong in Coupeville, with parents Reese and Michelle working as both coaches and league administrators.

The family also owns and operates Whidbey Pest Control, while children Chris, Autumn and Aurora are all current students at Coupeville High School.

A recent health scare landed Reese in the hospital for a week-plus, as doctors dealt with a potential bleed in his brain.

While he’s back home, and droppin’ hot memes on Facebook on a regular basis, he’s still very much in recovery mode and has not been able to return to work.

As the Cernick family works its way back, one way we can all help is by getting on the meal train started by family friend Lori Taylor.

Whether you’re up to contributing food, or can help out with gift cards to grocery stores such as Red Apple Prairie Center or Safeway, everything helps.

Do it, for the kids.

Have a lot of soccer knowledge? Or just the basics, but you want to help shape the destiny of Central Whidbey’s young booters anyway?

Old pro or first timer, the Central Whidbey Soccer Club is in desperate need of coaches.

“If we don’t get coaches for our U-8 coed, U-10 boys, U-12 boys, and U-12 girls teams, there are going to be a lot of very disappointed young soccer players,” said Michelle Cernick.

The soccer club, which has been a vibrant part of Coupeville’s sports scene, almost shut down this year because of a lack of volunteers. But a small, but determined group of parents rallied to revive it.

Now the players are in place, and the first games kick off Saturday, Sept. 8.

But, with just two coaches currently in place, things are once again dicey.

If you’re interested in helping out, and want to get that nice, warm glow in your chest in return, drop an email to president@centralwhidbeysoccer.com.
