The Next Soccer Season.....
We are working on two things...A Sunday 4v4 league in the fall....and a Summer league for 2012.
Venue change is still a possibility or we may remain in VR.
Please keep me updated on all your emails...so I can keep you updated and of course keep checking the Adult league website.
Thank you all!
Special Thanks to Mike Best (Athletic Director) & Jeff Reese (Deputy City Manager) and the VRRD for the use of the fields.
They have never charged us anything for their use.
Without them the league would not have been economical...causing us to charge higher rates.
Most of your Children play at VR and it's an added benefit for the Parents to be involved with soccer.
And they are kind enough to allow it...
So Please Thank them if you know them
