Sara Thornton has been accepted to volunteer in Haiti this summer for two weeks. She will be working with Haitian teachers helping to improve their curriculum, assessments, classroom management, and several other aspects in education. She will also be teaching soccer skills to students each day after she finishes with teachers.
Sara is raising money to help send her there. Also, she will be collecting used cleats and soccer balls if anyone wants to donate.
Sara’s website is below.
Captured action shots of U10 LFC Blue and White teams from the Region 2 Challenge Cup #R2C2.
The U11 Girls White players gathered items such as toothbrushes, toothpaste, soap, coloring books, crayons, etc to include in a care packages for families that stay in the Ronald McDonald House. The girls assembled 21 care packages for the 21 families currently at the house. All the girls went to the house to deliver them and toured the house and learned a lot about how they serve families of sick children.
Our Committee has talked and surveyed options and we are going to have to make some cancellations and potentially some changes to our event. So please read carefully below as we lay out the changes for all age groups.
U15 and Above:
Your schedules are posted and they are final. The final venue will updated by tomorrow morning but it is close to Lexington. You must send us all Liability Waivers and the signed Checklist from the website. If you are playing an MRL, KPL or Buckeye game, those rules will govern the games. We will send more details in the next day or so…
U13/ U14 Age Groups:
Regretfully, we have exhausted all options and cannot find a suitable venue for all of these divisions. So these age groups will NOT play. We looked at turf fields, we looked at alternate venues, we looked at many options but we could not get these finalized by today and we wanted to make sure everyone had plenty of notice. Plus there is a possibility we will get additional rain this week. We are very sorry. Refunds will be finalized by the end of the week, but we don’t anticipate much withheld if any.
U9 – U12 Age Groups:
We are going to play these games. We have found a backup site to host if we get additional bad weather. We feel very confident that these games will be played. We are working on the schedules now and they will be finalized by tomorrow. We will send another notice out when these are final. At this time, ALL of these age groups will be played at Masterson Station Park.
We really appreciate your patience. We are so very sorry that we had to cancel part of the event. We have looked at so many options, this was the best solution to a very tough situation.
Please work on your registration info to be completed ASAP. All documents need to be email to us, there will not be an onsite registration.
Thank you and please accept our apologies for the chaos…
