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.

As your child steps up, so can you.

With a new school year bearing down, the Coupeville Booster Club is kicking into gear, and the hunt is on for new club members.

In particular, club veterans are hoping to attract the parents of Wolf freshmen.

If you have a son or daughter in the CHS Class of 2022, now would be the perfect time to join the booster club and help it grow as your child begins their path through their high school days.

Depending on how much time or desire you have, you can do a little or a lot.

Want to eventually be the Club President? Now’s the time to plot your rise.

Want to just help out a bit behind the scenes, as the boosters support Wolf athletes and coaches throughout the school year? That works as well.

If you want to get a feel for what the Booster Club does, the first meeting of the new year goes down this coming Monday, Aug. 27.

It’s at 6 PM in the health room, which is the room right outside the CHS gym. Step inside the front doors of the gym, and bam, it’s on your left.

If you have any questions, or want to get the ball rolling right away, contact Wendi Hilborn at wendihilborn@gmail.com.

Want to be in the inner circle?

Intrigued by the idea of helping Coupeville High School sports reach new heights? Feeling school spirit bursting out of every pore? Have a little bit of spare time?

Well then, I have a deal for you.

With a new school year fast approaching, the Coupeville Booster Club is gearing up for another campaign, and their roster is in flux.

The club needs to add some new board members to round out the group which keeps things chugging along. Whether you have kids at CHS or not, that could be you.

Board members have voting rights, work on projects throughout the year such as the annual crab feed fundraiser, and get to be at the forefront of funding Wolf athletes and coaches.

From supplying athletic letters, to making sure athletes have snacks on road trips, to helping CHS coaches purchase new equipment, to being a driving force behind the Wall of Fame in the gym and the record boards for football and volleyball, the Booster Club is the motor which drives Wolf Nation.

It’s time to take the mound and make your pitch.

Central Whidbey Little League is seeking a volunteer to run concessions, and league officials would be particularly interested in someone who wants to bring in new ideas and expand the menu.

Whether you’re bubbling over with ways to fire up sales and tantalize taste buds, or content to just run things as is, they want to hear from you.

If interested, contact Paula Peters at (805) 302-9162.

Ask not what your school can do for you, ask what you can do for your school.

Right now, especially if you’re a student or parent directly involved with the Coupeville High School Class of 2017, what you can do is volunteer a bit of your time for the good of everyone.

Volunteers are needed to help run concession stands at CHS football, volleyball and basketball games.

That’s important work, as the money raised from sales of things like hot dogs and candy directly benefit the next graduating class and their senior trip next spring.

The class is also in the market for anyone willing to help by donating supplies (water, sodas, candy, etc.) for concession use.

While they would love to have seniors and their parents involved as much as possible, there has also been the suggestion that juniors (Class of 2018) might step up to help out for Homecoming.

That’s Oct. 7 this year, with Port Townsend coming to town.

If juniors (and their parents) step up that night, it would allow senior parents a chance to enjoy their final Homecoming festivities outside of the concession stand.

Could be a nice new tradition to start.

If you’re interested in volunteering (for any or all games) or donating, contact Lisa Edlin at Littlelisa68@yahoo.com or 360-914-7810.
