OMM and Go4theGoal!…September was National Childhood Cancer Awareness month and our programs again supported the effort by joining in the “Go4the Goal” campaign. Cancer is the leading cause of death of children by disease but only a small percentage of federal funding is dedicated to pediatric cancer research. Go4theGoal started in 2011 in answer to requests from youth soccer teams that wanted to show their commitment to the fight against pediatric cancer. Today, the effort has spread to teams across the country representing every sport and level from youth to professional. For a donation of $5.00, donors receive a pair of gold laces that they can wear to show their support to those children and families facing cancer. All of the funds we raise we be donated to the Maria Fareri Childen’s Hospital to provide supportive services for the patients and their families. It is estimated that this September alone there will be tens of thousands of soccer players nationwide joining the Go4theGoal effort and we are honored to join them and thank our families for donating. Over 1000 laces were purchased and a donation of $5400 was sent.

OMM QUESTIONS and ANSWERS … For the past year or so another area soccer program has been aggressively trying to take fields away that our league has used for our programs. Unlike our league which uses all of it’s surplus funds to maintain the complex, continue with improvements (like the three turf fields we have installed), and pay down the debt on the complex, they have no such expenses and are able to pocket the funds they make. In essence they are using town resources to run a business that they at one time offered to sell to us. A great deal of misinformation and falsehoods have been spread by this group- we invite our registrants and anyone who is interested to read the following for more information.

OMM SOCCER DAY… …Did you know that OMM was recognized by the Rockland County Legislature? We were recognized for our achievements in developing a exemplary soccer facility (one that has allowed us to be one of the few host sites in the United States to be approved for both National C level coaching classes and national training camps) and exemplary soccer programs (OMM recreational soccer, World Class Travel Soccer, and Buddyball Tipsterbets Sports).
