Gold Cup Starts Tuesday
US Soccer

The United States Mens national team is playing in the Gold Cup this summer, and they take on their first opponent (Canada) on Tuesday!  The Gold Cup is the regional championship for North/Central American nations.  The winner of this tournament will play the champions of the other soccer regions during the Confederations Cup in the summer of 2013.  This prestigious tournament is held for the greatest teams in the world as an extra practice for the World Cup the following year.  The United States shocked the world by placing second in the Confederations Cup when it was last held in 2009, dropping a very close match 3-2 to Brazil.   

The Gold Cup schedule is on our team calendar.  Let's see if Team USA can go all the way again this year!

Picture Day
Team pictures have been rescheduled for Wednesday 6/8.  Wear your full uniform (blue jersey) to practice and remember to bring your order form if you plan to order photos.

Save the Date!

Since we did not have enough players to go to the tournament in MA this year and the NY tournament wasn't a good fit for us, Justin has been working hard to put together a round robin tournament for us and some local teams.  This tournament will be June 11, 1-4 PM.  Make sure you mark you calendars-- you won't want to miss this fun afternoon of soccer!

To order photos return your white photo envelope to Andrea at practice on Monday.
