MYСL is an organization uniting active people, who want to provide fun sporting events for our kids, in a city that lacks such services.
Meet our Dream Team!
Chet Bowling, Head of the League. Chet first came in Moscow from Guyana in 1991 to study law at Peoples’ Friendship University of Russia. Now he’s managing and founding partner of Alinga Consulting Group (our trustworthy partner and sponsor for 5 years!). Chet has two kids, his son is playing in Moscow Youth Leagues since 2009. Chet has always been involved in MY Leagues: as a parent, as a coach for his son’s teams, as a Division Leader. Starting from the upcoming season he is taking the lead of the League to continue making our soccer seasons fun and quality time for Moscowites and Moscow expat community!
Derk Sauer & Martin Wiewiorowski, first MYSL-organizers (almost 20 years ago). Derk comes from The Netherlands. His sons played in MYSL years ago. Some of them are still actively participating in the organization. Martin comes from America. His daughters also played in MYSL years ago and he’s been involved as parent, organizer or sponsor ever since. Both are not always physically at the fields, but definitely still with us! The League development remains closely tracked by both Derk and Martin.
Ksenia Mershina, Project Leader, responsible for fund-raising, purchase and overall organization of the event. Has been working for Moscow Youth Soccer League for 6 years to make each new season more and more successful. Ksenia is a sourse of ideas, wisest mentor, our inspiration and example to follow. According to her own words, she doesn’t know the soccer rules, but knows for sure how much the uniforms cost.
Lucia Rodriguez, Project Manager, responsible for overall organization, involved in fund-raising. Luci adores kids of all ages and enjoys watching football in a good company: when she first came at the fields she found out how the perfect job looks like! MYCL’16 is going to become the 3rd season for her and she’s looking forward to seeing kids’ smiling faces.
