Dear Parents and Coaches of GBYSL

Over the weekend we had two incidents at Moana Springs Soccer Fields

A father reported his daughter missing and saw her holding the hand of a man. He yelled out and the guy let her go and ran off. Reno PD was dispatched and swabbed her hand for possible DNA residue.We are waiting for the results.There was a similar incident at the South Valleys baseball fields earlier in the week and description of the person were similar.

In addition, we were monitoring a person during the games. He was watching one game going in and out to smoke a cigarette. When he finished one game and went to another game, at that point we called the police to report suspicious activity. He left the fields, Reno PD found him down the street and determined he did not belong at the fields. He was instructed in vivid details if found near the fields again he will be arrested and we will file any and all charges against him. All staff members and board members have a picture of him.

We are enhancing security and hiring a security guards for the exits. We purchased a more robust PA system and are reviewing the possibility of installing cameras. Our board members and staff will review protocols and establish new ones for the safety of all kids. Over the winter we installed bollards and security chain to make sure cars could not drive onto the fields.

We have a link on our FB page directing you to an US Youth Soccer safety flyer.

We ask all of you to do the following;

-Keep a vigilant eye on your kids, know where they are at all times.

-If you see something or someone suspicious report it to the staff at the GBYSL tent.

-Establish a protocol with your kids should you become separated from them; the tent area will have staff members. Staff/board members will have ID badges on them at all times; they have GBYSL logo clothing to ID themselves as GBYSL staff/board members.

-Do not take matters into your own hands, let us know immediately.

-The more eyes watching, the safer for our kids.

Finally a huge thank you to Chief Soto and his staff of Reno Police Department for their fast response and professionalism.Also a thank you to ESI Security for getting us the security guards for this weekend.

Given that they share our sports complex, this is very concerning news. Please talk to your children about their safety when they are at Jack Tighe and help us keep an eye out for anything suspicious.

Thank you,

Dave Walden
RCLL Player Agent and Webmaster
