Announcement by Club President Carl McNair following Beachside’s Club-wide meeting on Monday on September 19:
Thank you to all who were able to attend our club wide meeting last night; it was a record crowd.
For those of you who could not attend the meeting, Below is a summary of the announcement of Beachside Soccer Park. Since this project is so critical to Beachside and its players, I wanted to provide you with details regarding the efforts of the Board to make Beachside Soccer Park a reality.
Last Friday, we entered into a Purchase and Sale Agreement to buy 11.3 acres near Independence Drive in Monroe, Connecticut. The Agreement provides us with 120 days to complete our due diligence regarding this property, and we are already working on a title search and an environmental site assessment. The Agreement also provides a 180 day contingency period for: (i) Beachside to confirm it has enough money to close on the land and build the Soccer Park; and (ii) the Seller to obtain all necessary approvals for fields, clubhouse, lights and parking. Assuming all contingencies are satisfied over the next 180 days, we will purchase the land in May 2017.
We are in the early stages of planning, but this 11.3-acre parcel will include two full-sided turf fields with lights and an area for goalkeeping and small-sided training. In addition, the complex will include a 10,000 SF clubhouse and training facility that will be used for regenerative training, yoga, strength and agility training, an internet-connected study area, meeting rooms for coaches and players, offices for support staff, coaches and club officials and a common area for parents to relax when they drop off for practice. In addition, there will be locker rooms and facilities for both home and visiting teams….girls and boys.
As Mickey said last night, our announcement of Beachside Soccer Park will be a “game-changer” for our club.
I will be in regular communication with all of you over the next several months about this exciting opportunity for our club. Thank you for all of your support of Beachside, and feel free to contact me with any questions or suggestions.
Carl McNair, President
Beachside Soccer Club
