Eliot’s Great Escape


Freedom! This was after several failed attempts and maneuvering the pen walls into a V shape so he can climb up easier. This little pup is a persistent one.

More Soccer for Leo: Guest Playing

Leo played as a guest on two other teams for tournaments this Spring. First, the U10 Green Bulls in Richmond and later the U12 Orange team in Culpeper. Both teams did well and Leo made great, new friends.

Eleni Plays Soccer, too

Eleni had the pleasure of playing as a guest on the SOCA U12 Challenge Orange Pride, led by Coaches Mike and Brian. They were runners up in the Virginia Beach Coastal Kickfest in late May. Eleni played in the Greene County Rec League in Spring 2017 and tried out for SOCA U15 Challenge for the Fall 2017-Spring 2018 seasons. She was selected and is very excited to join Coach Mike again (and a few Orange Pride girls) on the Yellow Spirit. Congrats Eleni!
