Regional Commissioner - Justin Townsend - rc@cvayso.org
I moved to Carson Valley about 3 years ago with my wife, Miranda, and our three awesome children. Our family loves sports, especially the beautiful game of soccer.  I joined the Carson Valley AYSO Board because I want our local youth to have the opportunity to have fun and make new friends while playing this wonderful game.  This is my first year on the Board and I look forward to serving our community.

Registrar - Shelly Kennedy - registrar@cvayso.org
I moved to Carson Valley about 7 years ago. My daughter began playing AYSO when she was 6 years old and fell in love. Last year, was my first year as an assistant coach and was surprised how wonderful the head coach and parents were in supporting AYSO. I was approached to take a position on the board and am glad that I am able to help organize the Carson Valley AYSO players. I am happy to help support the youth of Carson Valley and contrubute to making this a great place to rasie kids!

Treasurer - Mina Matua - treasurer@cvayso.org
I have lived in Carson Valley for the majority of my life. I became involved in AYSO when I was in 4th grade as a player. AYSO started my love for soccer and I continued to play through high school graduation.  Now my daughter is involved in AYSO and I want to contribute to the organization that started my passion for the game.

Regional Coach Administrator - Dave Kawchack - coach@cvayso.org
I was fortunate enough to be born and raised here in the Carson Valley where my family has owned and operated a water well and submersible pump company for three generations. Emmy and I have been married for 14 years and have three children, all of whom have played soccer at some point. When I was five years old, I started playing AYSO soccer and fell in love with the sport, playing on many teams up through high school. This will be my third year coaching, and I look forward to many more.

Regional Referee Administrator - Rob Rose - ref@cvayso.org
It was five years ago that I  received the call from our local AYSO region asking if I would volunteer to coach my daughters soccer team. I was terrified. I had never played soccer and knew nothing about the game. After some cajoling from my dear wife and kids I reluctantly accepted the position. A few hours of internet surfing and reading coaching manuals provided by AYSO I did my best to ready myself for my first coaching experience. I’ll never forget the first day I met the kids on the team with their smiling eager faces and positive energy. I was hooked. Fast forward five years and I still love coaching the kids and have expanded my involvement with the organization as a division  coordinator, field coordinator, referee, Treasurer, and now the Regional Referee Administrator.

Field Coordinator - Dan Hamer

Webmaster - Chris Garton - web@cvayso.org
Soccer was a key foundation in my childhood and had many positive effects on my personal growth.  It's important to me that other kids get to have that same opportunity. Soccer programs in a community don't just happen.  After coaching my son's teams for the last five years, I realize how much effort it takes by a LOT of volunteers to have a successful and vibrant program.  Updating this website and getting involved in other projects is rewarding for me to be a part of the 
Carson Valley volunteer team.

Volunteer Recruitment - Emmy Kawchack - volunteer@cvayso.org
I came to Carson Valley 15 years ago, when I met my husband David. We have three children who tend to go in three different directions, but we manage to keep up! I know nothing about soccer, but I do love the enthusiasm kids have for the sport and want to foster their growth. Soccer Saturdays have become the norm in our house, and I love every minute of it.
