Bill Peet winds down four decades of volunteering with Long Island Junior Soccer League
(Via ENYYSA) – The Eastern New York Youth Soccer Association (ENYYSA) salutes Bill Peet as he winds down his four decades of volunteering with the Long Island Junior Soccer League (LIJSL).
“Bill Peet has established an amazing legacy of volunteering with the LIJSL,” commented Eastern New York President Richard Christiano. “From the days of the LIJSL office in Hicksville, then Plainview and now the office in Ronkonkoma today, Bill would spend many nights there volunteering so that the league could continue to provide a top soccer program for all its players.”
Bill became involved with the sport just after the start of the youth soccer boom in the mid-1970s when he registered his twin sons, Billy and Mike, in the Brentwood Soccer Club. He would eventually become their coach with the Brentwood Jets and the travel team played in the LIJSL. Bill went on to coach numerous Brentwood teams, both boys and girls, as well as the LIJSL Select Program. He also received the National “C” Coaching License.
Bill volunteered on the LIJSL Board of Directors for 30 years including a quarter-century as Treasurer. The Brentwood resident also volunteered as LIJSL Registrar and still serves on the Appeals Committee and the Rules Committee today. He was inducted into the LIJSL Hall of Fame in 1999.
This is in addition to his “real job” owning Lundgren & Mause, a Property and Casualty Insurance Agency in Jericho.
“I met a lot of wonderful people who helped me as Treasurer,” Bill stated. “And I loved to watch the kids play.”
