Weather Policy Reminder

Weather Policy Reminder: We play in the rain. According to the forecast now (10:25p) there is a moderate chance of rain for the morning games, but no thunderstorms. All games should proceed as scheduled until and unless we close the fields. At this point, we plan to keep all fields open and play all games.
 
If there is thunder/lightning in the area, fields must be cleared for 30 minutes after the final occurrence. PreK/U8 coaches need to make the decision, U10+ the referee makes the decision.
 
If your game does not get played or if you play less than one half, please email christiansburgsoccer@gmail.com with your match details so it can possibly be rescheduled.
 
A decision for PreK activities will be made by 9:30a since the possibility of storms increases around 11a.

Kindergarten is on – 4/21

Kindergarten activities will continue as scheduled for this evening. The weather forecast shows that the storms will hold off until after everyone clears the field. (As of 3:45pm, the storms are not expected until 7:30pm.)

If storms look like they’re arriving sooner than forecasted, skip the practice portion of your evening and get to the game. If thunder/lightning is in the area you must clear the field immediately.

U9 Boys Travel to Fredericksburg

Players from the U9 Boys Academy team traveled to Fredericksburg,  VA to play in the FSCI March Friendlies over the weekend.

The boys played four games at the Fredericksburg Friendlies.  Two games were played against the St. Mary’s Soccer Strikers (Maryland) and two games were played against the Lee Mount Vernon Patriots.

While they lost all four games, it was a great experience for everyone.  Last season, our academy teams dominated most of our local competition.  The Friendlies presented a significantly higher challenge and we faced some adversity for the first time.  The boys responded well and learned some important lessons on spacing and defending that will help through the rest of the season.

Great work, team!

Friendlies are competitive games when the scores don’t count for league play. This game format is an excellent way for teams and players to continue their development while playing teams that are typically outside their area and/or at a different skill level.

The Academy Program is focused on individual player development and is the bridge between recreational play and competitive travel play.  For more information on the program, please visit us at: https://csoccer.org/competitive-league/
