This program was started about 2000 and offered soccer for kindergarten through sixth grade stu- dents in Gilmer County. During the fall of 2008, the program was not continued, due to a lack of interest. Since its loss, several individuals have expressed concern about the program shutting down. Therefore, the WVU Extension Service will try to reorganize the pro- gram. However, this program cannot function without the efforts of volun- teers. Volunteerism was the area where the main "lack of interest" was in 2008. The soccer program requires many volunteers, in several different positions: coaches, assistant coaches, referees, time keepers, fund raising, concdssions, and painting/lining the field. The WVU Extension Service is putting out the call now to individuals who would be willing to step up and volunteer with the 4-H soccer pro- gram. Contact the Extension Office at 462-7061 by Friday, February 20, if you can give of your time and talents for this wonderful youth de- velopment program. Without volun- teers, this program will not be able to return in 2009.
