POBSC Volunteer of The YearUpdated Sunday March 11, 2018 by POB Soccer.
On Friday evening March 9, 2018 Brian Katz was honored by Long Island Junior Soccer League as the POBSC Volunteer of the Year. Brian has a very long history not just as a volunteer, board member (Trustee), coach but also as a former player for Plainview Old Bethpage Soccer Club. He has been very instrumental working with Tracy Slavsky, our Vice President of Travel, to make sure that all the children in our 40+ travel team program are having a wonderful experience year after year. Brian's philosophy of development for all children no matter what their skill or competitive level might be is one of the many reasons why he has become such a valuable part of our organization..........now and for many years to come.
Brian is raising three children here in Plainview and is currently the Head Coach of his daughter's U10 team as well an Assistant Coach for his son's U13 team. Outside of his work for the children of POB, he is a teacher in the Manhasset school district where he has a stellar reputation. Here is a quote from a former student "Now being a sophomore in high school, i still remember Mr. Katz. He by far was my favorite elementary school teacher, or possibly teacher period".
We are not just happy to have Brian as a member of our club, but we should feel privileged to have him as part of our community.
Congratulations Brian.......................you are everything that is right with youth athletics!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
