Flood 2011
WE ARE ONE TEAM!  Two communities effected by the same problem came together from the age of 4 to 99 and worked to prepare and worked to help each other with something none of us had control over. 
[We work better as a TEAM when we are on the same mission, instead of on our own.]
We as soccer players, we as neighbors, we as businesses, we as leaders heard the call and worked where ever the need was.  It didn't matter who you were or where you lived, we were there for each other.
Lots of soccer players and their families were out helping each other and those we didn't even know.  There are too many individuals to list that were out helping here and there and every where. 
Job well done!  We don't look for Thanks during our call to duty.  We are called to help and help we did.
Let's get that in our heads; Let's get that in our hearts; and as we take the field for each and every game, putting our TEAM first instead of ourselves can only lead to VICTORY!

Please provide a 1 / 2 / 3 ranking for each of your players.  These rankings will be used this fall during the team selection process.  In the fall, names are drawn from a hat of 1's, 2's and 3's to allow for even teams distribution.
Player rankings need to be turned in or emailed to your division coordinator by the last games.
