The 2016 Fall Soccer season has been a successful one, so far! We have 306 players signed up across five exciting leagues, making this the biggest fall soccer season in recent memory.

As of the midway point of the season (September 30th), all of our leagues have been very competitive, with many exciting games. In the 1st & 2nd grade league, Jade (Coached by Jamie Weathers) currently sits atop the standings with a  record of 3-0, but Carolina Blue (Coached by Ben McEntire) is right behind with a record of 2-0-1. Our 3rd & 4th grade league is currently led by Safety Orange (Coached by Jessica Greve and Amy Varnadore) who has a strong 4-0 record. However, Black (Coached by John Nespeca and Christian Savaia) are hot on their heels with a record of 3-1. In our 5th & 6th grade league, Purple (Coached by Brian Jones), is currently holding on to first place with a record of 4-0, however Red (Coached by Kevin Powell) and Blue - Wells Fargo Advisors (Coached by Mike Ashworth and Jammy Edwards) are right behind them, with each team possessing a record of 3-1. Our 7th-12th grade league features two competitive teams, Lime (Coached by Mike Gallagher) and Carolina Blue (Coached by Parry Ward), who are battling for the top spot in this age group. With such close competition across all of our leagues, this season is sure to come to a thrilling conclusion!

We have also had a fantastic season so far in our youngest age group, the Wee Booters. This league is for four and five year old players who are looking for an opportunity to learn about soccer and have a lot of fun in the process! We have eight teams who are led by energetic and enthusiastic coaches who always make sure that everyone is having a blast!

Thank you to all of our dedicated coaches for their tireless efforts in making these leagues so successful. We truly could not do it without you!

We would also like to thank all of our amazing sponsors for their contributions. These Sponsors are Dutch Strength (Orange-Wee Booters), Wells Fargo Advisors (Royal-Wee Booters, Royal-3rd & 4th, Royal 5th & 6th), Mary Duran MD, PA (Lime-1st & 2nd, White-5th & 6th), Farm Bureau Insurance-Jesse Navarro (Red-3rd & 4th), and Caro-Mi (Lime-3rd & 4th).
