President Ken Cameron has been the president for the past 16 years, and says he’d like to step back from the role. However he won’t be leaving the association entirely. Whoever the new person is, Cameron says, will get his help as they transition into the role.
The largest role the president has is to oversee registration, which takes place in April. The president also helps pull together coaches, represent Queens County at the South Shore District Soccer Association meetings and look after issues that crop up during the year.
The biggest challenge facing the association this year so far has been the loss of the soccer field at South Queens Junior High. Construction for the new school is starting soon on the site, so the association is going to make use of the Liverpool Regional High School field and the Dr. John C. Wickwire Academy field.
The association is also looking for a treasurer and vice president.
Soccer in Queens has several different levels to join for both boys and girls, including Mini, under 12, under 14, under 16, under 18 and adult. What teams Queens County has depends on the number of players. Each team needs at least 14 players to be part of the league.
The Annual General Meeting takes place on April 4 at 7 p.m., at SQJHS in room 30.
Anyone interested who can’t make it to the meeting can contact Cameron at 354-2216.
