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.
