The start to the soccer season has been rocky. There has been some communication issues amongst all involved. Discussion on how to improve this for next year. Ideas include:

        Ensure all communication goes through Franklin Recreation Avenues (FB messenger/email address, etc.)

        Provide coach contact information for all teams being played

        Pre-set soccer practice days to ease planning for parents

        Consistent set of rules for each age group; shared between Franklin, Highgate and Swanton, at a minimum
