This is a message from Mr. Buck, Activities Director for Powell Middle School on adding the position:
Powell Middle School has quietly held a soccer culture within our student body and would now like offer our students a structured, team oriented learning experience and an opportunity to compete against other Wyoming middle school programs. According to a 2018-2019 student body survey, nearly fifty 6th and 7th grade students expressed their interest in participating in a potential school-sponsored soccer club. In order to achieve the quality structure and overall benefit for our students, a leading sponsor must be at the forefront of our program in order to maintain consistency in fundamental coaching, structured safety and travel, and vertical philosophy aligned to the high school program. This Soccer Club Sponsor will assist to build the long awaited program, providing them a positive experience and belonging to an additional extra-curricular activity. Responsibilities for our soccer club sponsor will include the following:
• providing clear communication for students, parents, administration and stakeholders
• facilitating a structured, safe practice environment
• recruiting and leading club volunteer coaches
• providing quality coaching to our students
• assisting the AD to build a season schedule
• organizing club materials and equipment
• organizing club travel

Powell Middle School is excited to offer our students this new opportunity. Please consider my request for this new club sponsor.
