Saturday, September 30th – HYR Picnic
The HYR Fall Soccer Picnic is Saturday, September 30th.   Depending on your game times, it will take place before, during and after the games.  We will start prepping the grill at 10 AM and expect to serve food from around 11 AM through 2 PM. Depending on your game time, please come early or stay late to break bread with your fellow HYR League families.  Bring your lawn chairs or picnic blankets. Please bring a well-marked folding table if you can so we can have plenty of serving space.

HYR will provide burgers and dogs (beef, turkey, and veggie), buns, condiments, plates, utensils, and napkins.  We will also have the big water jugs full.  Please bring your own beverages or cups for water.

Please bring a dish to share.  If your last name begins with A through Q, please bring a lunch side.  If your last name begins with S through Z, please bring something sweet.  Please bring food in containers that are well labeled with your name, or preferably, ones that can be recycled.

Please volunteer to help out for an hour if you can, either prepping food, serving food, or cleaning up. Here is the link to the SignUp Genius:


Thanks.  Looking forward to hanging out with you all.   For what it’s worth, the long range forecast predicts partly sunny and cool.  Let’s hope that holds!

He played on the very first HYR Soccer team in 1976.  He played HYR soccer, basketball and baseball into his teen years.  He began coaching his oldest daughter  in HYR soccer in the fall of 2002 and has coached every soccer season since that season, often multiples teams per season.   He has been married to Amy for 21 years, and all four of their children have played HYR soccer and baseball.  He has been on the HYR steering committee since 2013.  Patrick has also been a Cub Scout leader and led video clubs with children for several years.  When not on the field with HYR, you can find Patrick swimming at Lakeside, cycling or running in Cherokee Park, or paddling a kayak wherever there is flowing water to be had.
