Community leaders and local residents came out to the Glendale Sports Complex Friday evening to break in the new "grass" -- artificial sports turf that looks, feels and acts like grass, but isn't. "It's really squishy," said 11-year-old Shelby Gregg, a La Crescenta resident and a member of the local American Youth Soccer Organization team. "It's kind of weird stepping on it. If you haven't used it before, it's interesting. But I'm sure I'll get used to it."

A Glendale soccer group has created a large banner to send to their counterparts in Connecticut, many of whom had connections to the 26 victims killed in last week's shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown. The banner, which is to be hung in the new school Sandy Hook Elementary students will be attending after the holidays, says: “You are not alone. Our thoughts are with you.” Through Thursday evening, community members can also sign the banner created by an American Youth Soccer Organization group in Glendale and La Crescenta.

Tim Willert When considering a sport for his two children, one of the things Robert DeRosa found appealing about soccer was the amount of control referees have over a game. "If a parent is being abusive, the referees stop the game and suspend play until the parent leaves," DeRosa said Thursday. "If a player gets a red card he gets kicked out and cannot play the following game." DeRosa, a former American Youth Soccer Organization administrator in Glendale, believes Little League baseball should adopt the same type of control.

Contributed by Allen Vartanian The American Youth Soccer Organization (AYSO) is a great soccer program for everyone; from those who are just beginning their years of soccer to the expert team players. It is an organization which brings boys and girls together for one season of soccer and a lifetime of friendship. By the end of the season, all the players of a team feel like a family, and do not want to part; this is also true for the parents. I can say this for myself as well.

Budget cuts have been slicing through the city in seemingly every area, and newly proposed park fees show that children aren’t exempt even outside the classroom. Officials with the American Youth Soccer Organization and Little League are the ones voicing their displeasure with the Parks, Recreation and Community Services Commission’s approval of hourly fees for use of local fields, but children would be the victims. AYSO’s slogan is “Everyone plays,” but would everyone play if everyone had to pay more than the current $80 to $100 registration fee?
