PreK Annoucement: Re-scheduling final games

Saturday is now looking like an unplayable day due to cold temperatures, high winds, and possible snow. While this is short notice, we would like to move up the final game to TOMORROW NIGHT, Thursday at 6:00 p.m.. We are asking that TEAMS, not individual parents, but the teams, to let us know as soon as possible whether their team could be available Thursday night.

If tomorrow night is not possible for some teams, we would have to look at another Saturday morning, however temperatures are dropping quickly and there would be a significant chance that any future scheduled games could be cancelled.

Parents, please let your coach know your availability so your coach can contact us today.

Coaches, please reach out to your team today if you are not contacted by them directly. Specific team match-ups may have to be adjusted to accommodate team availability. We will need a response today in order to make the changes in the schedules by tomorrow.

Season update for the SWVA U14 Elite Girls

U14 SWVA Girls vs. SVU

Score: 0-1

The SWVA Elite U14 Girls hosted SVU in Blacksburg on Saturday 10/19 in a rematch of their September match, won by SWVA Elite 2-0. In the first half, the girls came out a bit sluggish and disorganized, and in the early part of the first half failed to properly defend a cross which SVU converted. The girls regrouped and found the better side of play by halftime. In the second half, the girls maintained a possession edge and generated more chances on goal than the opposition, but failed to convert any of them and ended up with a 0-1 defeat.

The loss was the first of the league season for the U14 Girls after opening Skyline play with five consecutive wins.

U14 SWVA Girls vs. AFC

Score: 1-0

NRU Goal: Emily Southern

On Sunday 10/20, the SWVA Elite U14 Girls hosted Augusta, in a rematch of an early October match, won by SWVA Elite 2-0. In the first half, the girls again came out a bit sluggish and disorganized, and found themselves defending for much of the opening fifteen minutes of play. As with the Saturday affair with SVU, the girls got it together and dominated possession and the scoring chances for the remainder of the match.

The girls next travel to CVU on Saturday, October 26th for a match involving the top two teams in U14 Skyline Premier division.

The SWVA Elite U14 Girls team is playing under the NRU umbrella. It is comprised of 22 players from Christiansburg Soccer Club, New River United and Radford Soccer Club, and is coached by Erin Lycan, VT women’s assistant coach, and assisted by B.J. Flack (NRU) and Jason Mahugh (CSC). 

Practice days: U8+

U8 and above are scheduled to start practice during this week.  If your first week’s practice would have a conflict with a school open house, let your coach know.  Teams CANNOT move their practices without the coach contacting us and getting approval.
