Westside United Team's helps out at Convention



Manager of the Year - Finalist

AMANDA LEECH – Westside United FC

A Manager’s job lasts year round.  It never really ends.  From helping to develop the budget to money collection; from registering for tournaments to taking pictures after the finals;  from paying the referees to keeping the dads from trying to “teach the referees a thing or two”, Mandy does it all.  She ties shoes and cleans scrapes, ices ankles and fetches water.   She helps all of the team to become winners and better people every day through her daily actions.  Mandy is the ”heart” of the team.  She knows the players and their personalities and truly cares.  She is encouraging and compassionate and no matter what the situation, Mandy is there to pick up the slack and sometimes the pieces.. to make the team whole again.  She gives whatever she has in a sacrificial way.  And she does it all with a smile and with her wonderful “Westside Green” style.


  Volunteer of the Year - Finalist

DIANE BLACHA - Westside United FC

Diane is an asset to Westside United in everything that she does.  She is the first to volunteer anytime something needs to be done, or to serve on committees.  With the increase in teams that Westside United has enjoyed this past year, her registrar tasks have expanded as well.  Diane handles all the registration with ease and professionalism.  She is also constantly training new managers needing direction.  Diane has served on the Westside United Tournament committee since its inception, handling the hotel and sponsorships along with other duties such as referee food coordination.  She serves on the Executive Committee of the club as well.  Diane never does these things for recognition.  She just wants to make sure the job gets done, no matter what that job might be or what work it might entail.  She is a wonderful volunteer.


 

 


Administrator of the Year

JOHN CASE – Westside United FC


John founded Westside United FC over 10 years ago.  Those that know him know that he founded more than just a soccer club.  He created more than just a place to house soccer activity.  He created a place where kids are helping kids develop skills to become responsible, active and important parts of the community.   John’s work ethic and pride come out in everything that he does – and he does this now even though he no longer has children playing soccer.   As the current club Executive Director, John handles all the administrative work for the club, as well as maintaining three (3) playing sites for the teams to train and play.  And that includes time on the tractor himself!  He has helped develop a new fall tournament, brought in the club’s first Director of Coaching and is one of the reasons that the club has grown by 30% in the past two years.   As important as the Westside team’s excellence on the field, more important is the man.  John is a compassionate, understanding and a no nonsense person.   He is a gentle man with a kind heart who is truly loyal to his club and to his community.  He is committed to preserving the game of soccer and his love for the game is present in every aspect of his day to day duties.  Almost anyone can learn to do administrative tasks… but the loyalty, commitment, passion and dedication to the club and the sport itself that John possesses cannot be taught.
