Here are some photos from the Stafford Area Soccer Association’s St. Patty’s Day Tournament. Nick played defense for his Richmond Kickers team. It was a good pre-seasoner – ya win some, ya lose some. We played at Fredericksburg Academy on very nice fields with some good competition. Another tournament next weekend, and then regular season play begins.
Teammates, I have a few pictures I’ll email of some other players. I really didn’t have the best of luck with shots this weekend. This morning’s game was cool enough that I was shivering and couldn’t hold the camera still. And then there is the problem of becoming too involved in the game and forgetting to take pictures.
Nick is #8 in red.
We thoroughly enjoyed watching all the kids play. Nick has some great teammates. Since this was our first official outing of the spring season, it was also fun seeing all the families and enjoying a St. Patty’s Day meal together at Legends, even if that did coincide with watching VCU lose to Indiana in the NCAA basketball tournament.
It’s been amazing to watch these young soccer players work so hard at their soccer skills and fitness. Looking forward to a great season! Go Kickers!
