Black History Monty, Registration, and Sponsorship

Good Evening Pele Families

Happy Black History Month

If you did not know, ECSC was nominated and acknowledge for the 20th Annual MLK Portrait Award in Charleston, SC on January 29th, 2019. It was an honor to be acknowledge for our community service. We are a part of history as one of the oldest African American Soccer organizations in the country. We are named after the famous soccer player commonly known as Lil' Pele, but is legal name is Edson Arantes do Nascimento. He played for Brazil and has won a few World Cups back in the 1960's. To carry on his legacy, we strive to make soccer affordable for all. Soccer is not met to be an expensive sport. ECSC mission is to serve the under served and to promote physical fitness, positive mental health, and overall support for the family by using the game of soccer. We promote fair play, team work, positive self esteem, and the importance of life skills on and off the field. In order for our organization to function it takes a village. No one is denied or rejected access to our club. With that said it is important to contribute what you can towards the registration of your player. Registration is $50.00 per season. We will assist those who may need scholarships. But more importantly we are now looking for sponsors who can contribute to our cause. Attached to this announcement is a letter to which can be shared with business in your community. No specific amount is required to be given. These contributions would go towards Tournaments, equipment, uniforms, registration scholarships and more. Please share with any and everyone. Our program can and does change lives. Registration is currently open for the Spring 2019 Outdoor Season. Any and all questions may be directed to Nicole Ashby or Vince Ashby Jr via email at ebonycitysoccerclub@gmail.com. Let's kick off the next year with bang.
