To the Editor,

In this world of complex daily schedules, strains on personal time and family lives, one thing that continues to be a consistent priority in our community is people’s willingness to help our children.

Valley Youth Sports would like to thank the people who helped make our basketball season a success…the volunteer coaches from each and every town including: Wilmington, Whitingham, Halifax, Dover, Marlboro, and Readsboro. Without the kindness and willingness to share of their personal time and energy, the children from these towns would not have had the opportunity to share in this season’s basketball/life experiences.

Additionally, and without a doubt, a huge thank you goes out to the individuals who unselfishly donated their time, energy, and bodies as referees for the weekly games. These folks deserve a thank you from us all: Robert Bolognani, Jon Ewart, Robert Boyd, Randy Capitani, Chris Worden, Tyson Dix, and Sam Molner. Molner is currently a Twin Valley High School varsity player who believes in “ giving back” to the system and children of the community in which he played as junior athlete. After spending time playing for the Wildcats, he has donned another cape and has shared his knowledge, experience, and kindness in helping guide the players through their games. Molner’s help speaks volumes about how important helping our community and giving back to the community continues to be.

Thank you all for a great, fun, and nail-biter season.

Topper Van Backer

Valley Youth Sports Administrator
