Letter from the NWISC President

~~To all NWISC Supporters, Participants, and On-lookers,

In case you didn’t notice when are at the soccer complex…it is a little windy!  I know you find that very hard to believe but it seems to be windy at the fields all the time.

On any given Saturday, soccer supporters over hear conversations about how windy it is and how nice it would be to have lots of trees planted to help break the wind.  It was stated that why can’t the city plant some trees.  The supporter stated that the city didn’t have anything to do with the soccer complex and these people had no idea…which led me to send create this letter.

NWISC is a non-profit organization totally run by volunteers.  We lease the north side of the drainage ditch from the Spencer Schools and we own the south side of the drainage ditch.  There have been several volunteers that have not only put in thousands of hours but also personally signed the mortgage to purchase the land, lights, bleachers, sprinkler system, etc to make the complex what it is today.  If we didn’t have dedicated volunteers to run our organization, take care of the fields, take personal financial risk, etc we would not have the soccer program we have today.  A heart-felt THANK YOU goes out to each and every one of them.

Just to give you an idea…it costs about $50,000 just to maintain our complex every year.  We generate about $19,000 in recreation soccer fees (what you pay for your kids to play).  I believe we have the lowest recreation soccer fees in the state for clubs who do not have a city supported facility.  So the sponsors you see on the back of your kids jerseys… THANK THEM!  For Famers Bank and Community Bank, two main facility sponsors, whose sign you see at the front of the complex… THANK THEM!  For the volunteers and coaches…THANK THEM!  Without the generous support from our community this complex would not be possible.  We get complaints about the cost of rec soccer…you will see that the fee you pay covers less than 40% of what it costs to run the complex.  The best way to keep the costs down are to volunteer your time and to do business locally with the sponsoring organizations!

Hopefully this will lift the “fog” on soccer complex.  If you have questions or would like to know how to help, please feel free to contact me.

Thank you.

Scott Simpson
NWISC President
