Overall, the the Farmington Recreation Department soccer season was a major success and plans on implementing more improvements to offer an exceptional program that helps the participants grow as athletes.
During Medal Madness, the Farmington Rec. Dept. presented two awards, the John Boutilier Memorial Award and the Jimmy Joe Allen Memorial Award. The John Boutilier Award represents a favorite fan that demonstrates enthusiasm and support throughout the entire length of the soccer program. This year, Mani Jean-Louis was the recipient of this award. Mani has a daughter in the Division One League on the Fire team and is always be seen cheering from the sidelines for both teams, complimenting and expressing gratitude to our coaches and refereeing staff.
The recipient of the Jimmy Joe Allen Award was coach Isaac Raymond. It was Raymond’s first year coaching, but when he wasn’t doing an excellent job coaching his own team, he was volunteering to referee other games, offering to help out with our kindergarten program, and fill in for coaches who had to miss a game day.
The Farmington Recreation Department would like to thank its volunteer coaches as these coaches put in an incredible amount of their own free time to help make this soccer season extremely fun and successful. Each staff member and volunteer played a crucial role in creating an environment that allowed athletes to improve their skills, make new friends, and have fun, all while developing a passion for the sport of soccer.
