Is there specific information available on how to make a small donation to Ravenswood Youth Athletic Association? DR

Most people work. Most parents who volunteer for the local AYSO in Palo Alto work full time and long hours. Parents who want to provide a soccer outlet for their kids volunteer after they finish their work day. The fact that there are not enough parents in EPA willing to volunteer some of their free time is the problem. They need to address that issue as a community. Throwing money at the problem is not the answer.

In other AYSO leagues, mothers and other women can coach and referee. East Palo Alto might double its volunteer pool if it didn't just rely on fathers and uncles.
Does anyone else think that $200/player for a soccer season is awfully high?
I agree with Resident: families need to step up and support their kids, in academics as well as in sports. The rest of us work too, and somehow we manage to stay involved in our kids' lives.
