It is hard to believe that 16 years have gone by since my 3 youngest children started playing with West United Soccer. We had just moved to West Valley City from our home in Kailua, Hawaii. I knew only my sister in law Kelly, who encouraged us to play soccer for West United. West United provided my children with friends very quickly which helped our adjustment to Utah. My 3 younger boys also developed a love for playing soccer, improved their skills, sportsmanship and learned to have fun during the game because of their many coaches and teammates over the years.
My time with West United Soccer has come to an end as my youngest son, Nathaniel has turned 18 and graduated from HS this year. It has been wonderful to participate with West United Soccer for the past 16 years in the various capacities from coaching my son Nathaniel’s U4/U5 soccer team, to age group coordinator and lastly as President. I never imagined that saying “Yes” to coaching my son’s U4/5 team would turn into becoming the President. It has been a wonderful experience and opportunity to serve the soccer families for all these years. I’ve learned so much and had the wonderful opportunity to get to know and work with so many great people on our Board over the years. It was great to see all the parents, grandparents and players on the field every Saturday supporting their players. Thank you so much for continuing to support West United Soccer!!
In our recent West United Annual General Meeting held on July 8th, a new president and registrar were voted in. I am pleased to announce that Jennifer Callister will be West United’s next president. She started as a coach, helped paint the fields and more recently has been the registrar with West United since 2012. She has a great love of the game, is organized, and is dedicated to bettering the opportunity for all of our West United soccer players. She has been a great asset for our league and will be an incredible president. The league will be in great hands with her leading. Dave Rasmussen was also voted in to be our new registrar. He is knowledgeable about the game and handy on a computer. He will do a great job helping with all your registration needs.
It is hard to say farewell but I am sure I will stop by the field and watch some of the games.
Until then,Cathy Connelly
Jennifer has been with West United since her daughter started playing in 2012. She started painting fields for the league in 2014, then she moved to being registrar in 2018 and in 2021 she was voted in as the President of West United Soccer. In between she has fulfilled various roles such as age group coordinator and secretary. Jennifer has been a coach off and on since she coached her sister’s team back in 2004. Her favorite thing is to be cheering her six children while they play for West United soccer. She is enthusiastic and is here to help with anything you need!
