Karen joined Lauderdale Junior Soccer Club in 2014, since becoming President of the club she has done extensive fundraising for the club enabling the purchase of personalized soccer balls, free personalized drink bottles for all players. Karen also approached local business’ for sponsorship and the club was able to get new uniforms……something that hasn’t happened in a long time!
The club now has a real family feel to it and it’s all thanks to Karen. Not only is she President, she is also the Secretary and puts teams together, processes registrations, organizes coaches and team kits, Karen also coaches her own U8 team and does a fantastic job. So many player’s families have commented on what an outstanding asset she has been. The club had their medal presentations last week and as a surprise Karen had organized free ice creams for everyone! Karen also sought out donations for our end of season raffle which was a huge hit, the funds raised from this will go towards purchasing new pop up goals and new marker cones.
Karen has certainly turned the club around and it has grown in numbers since she became President, without her the club would still be struggling to get registrations and would bw nowhere near as successful as she has made it.
