For the good of the game (the sequel)

South Kitsap — South Kitsap Soccer Club President Mike Kerr resigned Tuesday, the day after an article in the Kitsap Sun outlined changes in the club’s affiliation to state-level soccer organizations.

Kerr, who has led SKSC for three years, cited demands of his job as technical project manager for the Naval Undersea Warfare Center at Keyport, personal issues and negativity in the local youth soccer culture as his reasons for leaving the volunteer position.

A story on his departure and the club’s history of friction among members and within the youth soccer hierarchy of organizations will be posted soon on kitsapsun.com, under the heading of Sports. Yes, I’m a sports reporter at least for today.

Below are links to coverage of SKSC and youth sports in general we’ve done over the past few years. Enough said, I think.
