Results of the First 4v4 U10/12 Pumpkin Cup!

CCSL Academy would like to give a shout out to all of the players who participated in the first 4v4 Pumpkin Cup in Marble on Saturday!  We had around 50 players, 10 teams, 5 fields and the players combined to play in 20, 10 minute games….with each team playing in 4 mini-games.  The games were fast paced and the players came up with their own strategies, captains, and formations.  The players worked hard on warm sunny days and we saw lots of goals and lots of smiles.

Congratulations to all of the players and the Top 3 teams in each division are listed below:

Combined U10/12 Girls and Boys Division

First Place: 3 way tie with the Pecans, Peaches, and Melons; each team had 6 points and a record of 1-0-3

Please help Katelyn Jones Go On a Once-in-a-lifetime Soccer Trip

Katelyn Jones, one of CCSL’s referees, is trying to raise money for a Spain Soccer  trip with her soccer team in the Summer of 2017. She plays on a competitive team in Alpharetta, Georgia. There are two ways that you can help her go on this trip and further her chances of playing soccer in college.

  1. Katelyn  would like to train younger soccer enthusiasts for $15 per hour or $5 per person for groups of 3 or more. If you are interested in giving your young soccer player some extra coaching and training, call Mike Jones at tel:828-361-0033.
  2. Katelyn has established a GoFundMe Account where you can give towards the cost of her trip. Katelyn Jones GoFundMe

Thanks for helping Katelyn.  She is currently a Junior at Murphy High School and a rising soccer star!

Great Need for Concession Donations

I am not sure if everyone knows that our concession stand was broken in to a few weeks ago.  Unfortunately, Gatorade and snacks were taken in this break in.  So…we are in great need of donations to sell in the concession stand.  The proceeds from these sales help to keep our registration costs low.  If you can help…

  • U6: Individual Bags of Chips (or other salty snacks)
  • U8: Bottled Water
  • U10: Gatorade (12 ounce size in any flavor)
  • U12: Individually-wrapped snack cakes (e.g., Little Debbies)
  • U15: Individually-wrapped Candy (e.g., ring pops, lollipops)

Thank you so much!!
