Duo made soccer a success in Valley

Letter to the Editor.

All too often the efforts of those who make invaluable contributions

to our community go unrecognized. Steve and Tricia Clearman of

the Snoqualmie Valley Youth Soccer Association (SVYSA) are definitely

two people who are making a difference in our community.

This is the second year my family has been involved with SVYSA

and my first year as a coach. The Clearmans spent countless hours

planning, organizing, holding meetings, directing coach’s clinics and,

of course, coaching several soccer teams. Their tireless efforts have produced

a professional, well-organized youth soccer association that has provided

a positive, memorable experience for many families in our community.

On behalf of all the kids, parents and coaches involved with

SVYSA, thank you! Your ongoing contribution to our youth and our community

has not gone unnoticed.
