2019 Thanksgiving Weekend Tournament Recap
Due to poor weather and getting a late start on organizing the tournament, it was not a huge affair this year but we still had ~20 people show up to finish the Fall 2019 season with some post-Thanksgiving soccer. Players were split into two teams for a full-field game, with the White/Black Team (mostly Stars/TCU/Campo) defeating the Blue Team (mostly XO/Campo/Flying Pigs/Booty) 5-4.
More importantly, we were able to gather $126 for the Alameday County Community Food Bank.
Thank you for donating and coming to play a little more soccer!
Spring 2020 starts Sunday March 8th (stay tuned for schedule and format)

- Reminder for existing players that plan to switch teams:
- Prior to one (1) month before the season starts, communication (email) including the affected player, BOTH teams’ managers, and a league president must be sent so the original team has time to prepare for losing a player.
- Once the deadline for transfer without approval has passed, a player may only change teams with approval of the team they are intending to leave. Approval may be waived by the league if there are special circumstances which warrant allowing the transfer.
League message regarding co-ed play:
No more than 6 men may be on the field at any time with the exception of up to 1 man over 50 years old taking the place of a woman.
Female players must be over 18 whereas male players must be over 25.
With regard to the first rule, in no way is this to be interpreted as equating the ability of female players with a 50 yr old. That is not the intent of the rule. This rule is for expediency's sake.....meaning that it's very hard to find female players and this is a way to field teams and also include older players. Our immediate co-ed neighbor now fields 14 teams thereby narrowing the pool considerably.
