There are some simple guidelines which have been prepared by the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) when it comes to running activities in a hot and/or humid environment. The goal in participating in hot weather is to avoid fluid loss from the body or dehydration. Educating athletes, coaches and officials is key to identifying and preventing these injuries from occurring.

Welcome to 2015 Soccer Season

We hope players are excited to return to soccer this summer.  However, in order to have a 2015 Soccer Season we will need volunteers. Please visit our website for meeting dates and upcoming registration dates. Registration details have not been finalized but we should have updates after our next meeting.

As always, without volunteers our club cannot operate and we need your help. Please come out to our next meeting if you can help.

Thank you,

Gina Brock, President for 2015 Season
