As the pictures to the right of me illustrate, the youth season is
far from being over. With the high school athletic campaign ready to
get into full swing starting later this week, much of our attention
will be focused on covering the area’s eight local schools.
But that doesn’t mean we sports writers are going to forget about
the area’s youth scene.
Thanks to the Youth Page -- published Tuesdays -- the News-Press,
for the first time, will be able to provide comprehensive coverage of
the area’s AYSO and Pop Warner teams.
And just like the spring season, we are going to need the
community’s help to make this work.
As one can imagine, it is nearly impossible to cover both high
school and youth sports at the same time, especially considering that
there are nearly 150 youth events happening each week. But with that
said, we would still like to publish all the results, and that’s were
we need your help.
Please let us know of any game results or anything else associated
with the area’s youth scene by e-mailing me at
email@example.com or faxing the News-Press at 241-1975.
It may seem like an impossible task -- publishing every result --
but we feel it can be done. The more results we get, the bigger the
section will become.
Also, we still have not received any of the schedules for AYSO or
Pop Warner events. Since we photograph a game per week, it is
imperative that we receive the schedules as soon as possible.
Thanks again for your help, and we look to forward to providing
comprehensive youth coverage for the community.
