Thank you for the soccer information. It's our first year participating and we've been told almost nothing about this event. The coach mentioned that there was something on 9/9, but no time was given or what it really entailed. And we have no schedules for the games that are supposed to start on 9/10. Or uniforms, so the team doesn't even know what color they are supposed to be spirited about. So far I'm not impressed with the organization. My daughter loves to play and has had good practices so far, but I'd like some more information. Perhaps the coach will have that tonight....
