William Trippley Youth Development Foundation
The William Trippley Youth Development Foundation (www.WTYDF.com) is a non-profit organization bringing soccer training, free camps and educational opportunities to the children of Chester. I’d like to take a moment to introduce you to the life of William Trippley III and give you some insight about our foundation. Will Trippley, a Chester native, was an admirable son, a loving brother and a bright student. Soccer was among Will’s favorite activities, participating on the elite F.C. Delco Club Team & played for the EPYSA (Eastern Pennsylvania Youth Soccer Association) State Team. His hard work and perseverance earned him the opportunity to attend the prestigious Shipley School in Bryn Mawr, PA. While at Shipley, Will excelled at high school soccer and went on to play soccer in college with a scholarship to Elizabethtown. Will loved life and persevered toward his goals. Tragically, on Easter weekend in April 2004, Will fell victim to random gun fire; senselessly murdered while walking near his home in Chester. The community experienced the passing of one of the brightest young men in our community. During her heartache, Pat Trippley Demiranda, Will’s mother and best friend Neal Regino founded the William Trippley Youth Development Foundation (WTYDF). His death sparked the beginning of a vision for the betterment of his city. To honor Will, we are proudly hosting“Will’s Night Out” at the Ballroom of Boothwyn, 1405 Meetinghouse Rd. ,Upper Chichester, PA 19061 on Saturday April 14, 2018 from 6pm-10pm. The William Trippley Youth Development Foundation (WTYDF) and our collaborative partners: The City of Chester, Eastern Pennsylvania Youth Soccer Association (EPYSA) and numerous surrounding youth soccer associations are working together for the children of Chester, PA., won’t you join us?
