Soccer doesn’t just happen . . . For most of our members, NCSA is just “what you do” during the summer, spring or fall. For others, it’s a hobby. For others, yet, it’s a lifestyle. For Betsy Dixon-Lang, it was a lifestyle. For those of you who don’t know, Betsy worked with Aspire, supporting developmentally disabled individuals in Western New York. If there was one theme in Betsy’s life, it was “service”. Betsy served through work and through her personal life too.
For many years before her passing, Betsy served our community through NCSA. In her last few years of service, she was instrumental in the changes you see today, from paper forms to an electronic registration system and the expansion of offerings to a fall travel season and partnership with the City of Dunkirk to offer winter futsal . . . even the sponsorships of local and national retailers.
How do you honor someone who did so much? Someone who gave so much of herself for us all? In truth, we can’t begin to. For the next two seasons, you'll see that NCSA will be honoring our former president, Betsy Dixon-Lang, by placing her initials on our crests. You'll see this change on our jerseys for house league, spring and fall travel.
If we all could give what she gave, what a wonderful place the world would be…
