Over the past 6 months, The Hononegah Youth Soccer Association’s Board of Directors has been working closely with the Roscoe Township to improve the opportunity for youth soccer facilities in our community. Through these efforts, the Roscoe Township will be restructuring how they maintain 2 main parks: Kelley Meyers Park and the newly developed Hawes Park across from Schnucks (old Hilander) in Roscoe. To build Hawes Park, the Township was able to raise money and also received a Phase 1 grant from the DNR. Kelley Meyers Park will be upgraded this summer thanks to money from Local and State government. Plans for Kelley Meyers Park include adding dirt and grass for new soccer fields and moving mud volleyball courts to Riverside Park.
We would like to thank the following governments for the funding to do this:
As key players in these developments, both BSSL and Lions ’82 S.C. programs will benefit greatly. We have agreed to a 15 year lease of the soccer fields at Hawes Park and Kelley Myers Park. We will share these fields with the Hononegah High School Soccer teams. They will have first rights to the main field at Hawes Park and we will maintain the schedule for the remaining fields. Once the fields are ready, we will be centralizing practices for both BSSL and Lions ’82 S.C. Lions ’82 S.C. practices will move to Hawes Park this summer. The Bruce Samlan Soccer League will have time scheduled at Hawes Park, Kelley Meyers and Roland Olson during their Spring and Fall seasons.
We have made great progress but there is still more work that needs to be done to make these parks the best they can be for our programs. We have an opportunity to receive a phase 2 grant from the DNR. With this grant, it will be possible to add goals to the fields, build a concession stand, add lights and make many other improvements to the parks. To help make this happen, we need to show the township that they have our support at the next two township meetings. Unfortunately, there are many residents that are opposing the growth of these parks and they will be at these meetings to have their voices heard. We need as many parents, coaches and even players to attend the next 2 meetings to show a strong support for youth sports in our community. If you are able to attend, please wear your BSSL or Lions ’82 S.C. shirts and jerseys to the meetings. The meetings will be held at the Roscoe Township Offices on May 15th and June 12th at 5:30pm. The offices are located at 5792 Elevator Rd, Roscoe, Illinois 61073.
