FALL SOCCER FEST: SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 13 AT WELLER
This Saturday, we will hold our first GSSA Soccer Fest at Weller Park for the Passers and Instructional players. This is a double-header day of games for the Passers (morning-afternoon).
During the morning games, there will be appearances from the Xavier University and the University of Cincinnati cheerleader squads, including D’artagnan the Musketeer and the UC Bearcat. They will be showing up at the fields to help cheer on the kids, to take photos, and maybe kick a soccer ball or two….we can see how talented they are!
We will also have face painting stations located near the Instructional and Passer fields during the morning games. The face painters are volunteers from the Sycamore Junior High School Beta Club and other artistic volunteers who are giving their time to make it special for your kids. The face painting is free. If you plan ahead properly, come early and have your child’s face painted before his or her first game! Who wouldn’t want a rainbow or a flame on their face prior to kickoff?
During the afternoon games, we will have appearances from the Cincinnati Reds’ Gapper and Rosie Red. They play baseball, not soccer, but they will be there to meet your children, take pictures, and watch some good soccer games.
Throughout the day, the concession stand will be open selling drinks and pre-packaged snacks. The Maple Dale Elementary School Cub Scouts will be providing all of the items, from coffee in the morning to drinks and snacks throughout the day until the last games in the afternoon. So bring cash!
Remember, TODAY is the last day to pre-order your cheese and pepperoni pizzas from Rudino’s Sports Bar (located at 9730 Montgomery Rd. in downtown Montgomery). There will be no selling of pizza by the slice at Weller. Only pre-ordering will get you the pizzas. A large pizza is 16” and has 8 slices. A supporter of GSSA, Rudino’s is kindly offering the pizzas at a discounted price of $10 per pizza. Delivery time will be on Saturday between 11:45 AM and 12:00 PM at the Weller Park concession stand. You can’t beat that! So PREORDER TODAY (ordering ends at midnight tonight) if you want to stick around between games or have a team picnic.
In addition to our big weekend at Weller, Xavier and UC soccer play each other this Saturday evening and Sunday afternoon.
