2012 Season

Greetings all,

In the words of “The Blues Brothers legend”, Jake…..”hey man, we’re gettin’ the band back together”……YES, we are planning to play U-19 premier this summer. It will be flexible so you can work and practices will be limited and it will not cost very much. Everyone is welcome to play, it does not matter if you played in college this year or not……PLEASE….PLEASE….contact me ASAP to let me know yes or no…..or maybe. You can also let me know if you know of another player who might be interested. PLEASE contact me NOW!!!!

Thank you's
Another very successful season has passed and it doesn't happen without the help of many people.  First, thank you to our coaches who have put in many hours to help each and every player on the team!  The U18 season is never easy with graduations, jobs, and the anticipation of college but they did a wonderful job of keeping the players involved and encouraging them in soccer and life.  Thank you to all of our parents for supporting your sons by attending games & "writing the check" to allow them to play.   Thank you to the Raether's for being our team sponsor, we really do appreciate your behind-the-scenes support!  Our end-of-season party was outstanding thanks to the Wong's!!!  Thank you to Dave Slack for the picture slide show and Sue Norstrom-Waldon for the bars at the party.  Finally - to all of the players - we have thoroughly enjoyed watching you play some outstanding soccer and grow up to be wonderful young men!!!

Fee Schedule

PSA sent out the first invoice for our team.  Since we did not have tryouts our team was not invoiced on the traditional club schedule and they decided to split the bill between two payments.  PSA asked me to give you this friendly reminder, if you have a balance from a previous season you will not get a player pass until your account is current.  You should call PSA to create a payment schedule. 

Our fee schedule is as follows: 

$50 Registration Fee

$550 - Commitment/Club Fee (1st Invoice)

$550 - Team Fee (2nd Invoice)
