It’s Div. 2 for United men’s soccer crew

VISL team invites new players to join them at first practice on Aug. 8

Comox Valley United men’s soccer team has taken their game to the next level – literally – and welcome players to join them for the 2013-14 season.

United posted an impressive 12-2-4 record last year en route to winning Vancouver Island Soccer League Div. 3B and earning promotion to Div. 2.

“Next week is the beginning of another exciting year and we want you ready for what is expected to be a challenging one,” United player-coach Carey Cordocedo said in a team message.

 

“Every year it’s important to see new faces and an influx of youthful enthusiasm to keep things fresh and new.” Cordocedo can be reached at Top Notch Soccer at 250-871-0620 or soccercoach12@shaw.ca for more information. Team manager Mike Letsos can be contacted at 250-218-2008.

United hits the pitch this Thursday, Aug. 8 at Woodcote Park in Courtenay at 7 p.m. for their first training session. Information on future sessions will be available at that time.

 

“We’re in talks with Port Alberni, Powell River and Campbell River to have a pre-season tourney here in the Valley over the Aug. 24-25 weekend. We also have a game scheduled on Sunday the 18th and of course the Castaways’ tourney on the long weekend,” Cordocedo noted.

 

THROW INS The VISL is planning a staggered start for this year’s regular season, with Div. 1 and Div. 2 getting underway on the Sept. 7 weekend … United did well in cup competition last season, finishing runner-up in the VISL Pearkes Challenge (losing to Campbell River Golden Wings on penalty kicks) and advancing to the quarterfinals of Provincial Cup play (losing in extra time to Richmond All Blacks) …
