Welcome to the ECFC August newsletter! This is the second in a series of monthly emails to keep members informed about what’s coming up in the club this season. (Please note the section below on social media as well, a fantastic way to stay connected!) All teams are now on the training fields and the fall season is quickly approaching. Read on for a few key announcements we wanted to bring to your attention.
SAVE THE DATE – FALL SEASON KICK-OFF EVENT!
We’re very pleased to announce a night out for parents and coaches for ECFC’s first annual Fall Season Kick-Off! Please mark your calendar for Saturday, October 8 from 7-10pm. We’ll have pizza provided by Big Mario’s and beer and wine, a few very fun raffle items, and all ticket proceeds will go to fund the newly christened Bobby Howe Scholarship Fund! • When: Saturday, October 8, 7-10pm • Where: The Ninety, the Sounders FC gathering place in Pioneer Square • Why: A social night for parents and coaches! Space will be limited! As a result, we ask that you be ready to buy tickets when invitations are sent in a few weeks. We hope you’ll join us for a fun night out!
BRING A FRIEND TO TRAINING
We’re excited to announce the new “Bring a Friend to Training Program.” The best way to introduce players to the club (and likewise to see whether those players are equal to the ECFC challenge) is to have them experience training with a friend. All players enjoy playing with friends, and this simple program can help us introduce our coaches, our philosophy, and our club to the larger Seattle soccer community in a highly efficient and fun way. The details: • A particular friend must register via Korrio – https://www.emeraldcityfc.org/bring-afriend-to-training. • A friend may attend a maximum of 4 training sessions. • The ECFC board will follow up with club information and an ECFC shirt for the friend. Please help spread the word about what ECFC has to offer and Bring a Friend to Training! Give it a try, have your player invite someone this week!
SOCIAL MEDIA – UNDER NEW MANAGEMENT
You need us, and we need you! We now have three active social media accounts and we really want to get ECFC members following our accounts! • Facebook – https://www.facebook.com/groups/114542515254/ • Instagram – https://www.instagram.com/emeraldcityfootball/ • Twitter – https://twitter.com/EmeraldCityFC The more people we have, the better we can use these fun, everyday tools to provide important information, great photos, and create a stronger feeling of club among members.
