SoccerFEST set for May 3

Staff Reports

SoccerFEST14, billed as “The biggest pick-up game on earth,” will be held May 3 as part of the American Youth Soccer Organization’s celebration of its 50th anniversary.

The Carson Valley AYSO program is hosting games for girls and boys up to 12 years of age that Saturday from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. at Lampe Park as part of a nationwide event presented by Dole Fruit.

Participants in the U8 through U12 age groups will be assigned to six-player coed teams for a series of “pick-up games.”

Adults will also have a chance to participate at 4 p.m. in a parents vs. coaches game.

The cost is $10 per player, which goes toward paying insurance fees and other expenses, including participation medals which will be given to the first 100 players who register. T-shirts will also be on sale, with proceeds going to benefit the Carson Valley AYSO program.

Online registration is being taken at http://www.tinyurl/Region318 or will be taken on the day of the event starting at 9 a.m. at Lampe Park.
