The Community Outreach of South Texas (COST), formerly the Boys & Girls Club of Cotulla, has decided that, after 22 years, the organization will step away from all Cotulla Youth Sports. The announcement is being made in the hope that a group of parents/volunteers will fill the void for the community going forward.
COST will focus solely on new onsite services for local youth and adults and eventually expanding into and establishing an animal rescue, dog park and a permanently housed veterinary service to Cotulla. COST is recruiting individuals and community investors who are willing to help with these projects.
I’d like to thank all board members, coaches, parents, sponsors, employees, league presidents, and most importantly, the kids we served. A very special thanks also goes out to Cotulla ISD for their support and generosity with fields, staff, copies, and facilities for over two decades.
Additionally, I’m proud to say that we provided the following activities: football, cheer, soccer, volleyball, basketball, tumbling, martial arts, after-school programs, adult programs, annual festivals, and community prize bingo. It is our intent to continue serving the community with many new initiatives to come.
I’d like to recognize these volunteers for their support: COST Board/Family Abel Y. Garcia, Tammy Gonzales, Fred Gonzales, Jackie Barraza, Javier Garcia, Ester Gonzales, Mario Leija, Pilar Martinez, and Jazmine Olivas; past board members Rosemary and Michael Vargas, Benjamin Flores, Elvira Gonzalez, Tina Osio, Christina Queseda, David Colchado and Odie Mendez Martinez; founders and incorporators Arcenio A. Garcia, Roel Rodriguez, Jr., Evarado Lopez, and Alfredo Zamora; longtime coaches and volunteers Jesse and Maravia Gonzales, Monyka and Jorge Sarinana, Raul Garcia, Robert Campos, Ricky Ayala, Roger Ramirez, Eduardo Avina, and Jay Gonzalez.
Lastly, I’d like to bestow a special recognition upon Isaac Martinez who served as chairman for 15 years and was very instrumental in our success throughout the years.
