What Is Happening This Week

McMannen Upward Soccer for this week will be a bit different since our last two weekends have been rained out. There is no practice this week. Instead we will be playing games. At 6 PM tonight, Monday, May 15th, the Typhoons vs. the Cyclones and the Lightning vs. the Thunder. And at 6 PM tomorrow night, Tuesday, May 16th, the Avalanche vs. the Hurricanes and the Thunder vs. the Lightning. K-2 coaches will have to ref their own games which will be held in the outfield where they practice because the 3-6 will be on the big game field.

May 13 games cancelled

Sadly, we will not be able to have our scheduled games again today, Saturday, May 13. Our field at Morreene Road Park is still far too wet to safely play. In fact the majority of our game field is a giant puddle.

We look forward to seeing you on Monday and Tuesday with your uniforms on, for our makeup games!!
