This week has been incredibly hectic for the GLUSC.
We're nearing the end of our spring season so we needed to finalize a million tiny things such as getting medals distributed to coaches, getting tournament schedules out and making sure the fields were still lined after the gale-force rains.
Add to that the fact that early-bird registration for our Fall season ended Thursday at midnight PLUS our first Summer Camp of the year kicks off in just 3 short weeks and you can only imagine how busy the GLUSC World Headquarters has been.
We're ecstatic to have over 200 boys and girls ages 4-17 registered for our fall season already. We're projecting over 500 area kids will be registered to play soccer with us in a fun, well-organized environment by the time registration shuts down August 31st. If you haven't signed up yet you can do so quickly and easily online at www.glusc.com or by calling 301-502-6431 to sign up in person.
If you're interested in our British Summer camp just follow this link for more info. We had close to a hundred boys and girls attend camp last summer and it was BRILLIANT (as our British coaches like to say).
A field trip down to College Park on Monday to watch the Men's National Team practice and cheering on the USA against Brazil (or vice versa) Wednesday provided a lot of fun for the kids.
We'll finally get a short breather this weekend after our U14 Boy's League finishes their season up at Fairland Regional Park this Saturday. The boys will be participating in a tournament kicking off at 9:00. The soccer field is one of the premier fields in Prince Georges County and the MNCPPC is to be praised for developing such a great facility and providing our kids the opportunity to play there.
If anyone wants to see some upper level soccer tomorrow stop by the soccer field on Old Gunpowder Road behind the tennis bubble at 1:00 p.m. or 3:00 p.m. We'll be having our Consolation and Championship games. While we are first and foremost a Recreational soccer league, I'd match our older age brackets against any team in the area. The kids have been playing since they were very young and stuck with the sport because they had fun. That is the key to developing into a top soccer player. Go get' em fellahs!
