Soccer Equipment Recovery

Bad news for Cottage Grove kids. We discovered the first week of January that our  trailer with all of our soccer equipment had been stolen from behind Cottage Grove High School. Everything is gone: goals, balls, ball bags, cones, our wheels to move the big goals, our field marking paint machine, paint, field flags, whistles, stop watches, first aid kits, field boxes that held everything for the games and even the tape gun. Despite our best efforts to secure the equipment, over $7000 worth of  equipment is missing.  While we are insured for some things our coverage will not make up for what we have lost.  Even though soccer doesn't start for another couple of months, we have a long road ahead of us to make sure the kids of our community won't miss out on spring soccer season.

We need your help. Our fundraising goal has been focused on field improvements, which are greatly needed as well, but now the need for soccer equipment is our number one priority. We need a community effort to sustain our community recreation program.  Community support has kept South Valley Athletics going for nearly 50 years. That history of service has never been in greater jeopardy.   

Please share this with family and friends so we can give our kids a great soccer season this spring! No donation is too small and everything you give will go directly to benefit kids in this community.  We appreciate everyone who has shared our Facebook post and for continuing to look for the missing trailer and equipment. The South Valley Athletics Board thanks you in advance for your support and we are hopeful that we can continue to support kids in this community.
