News and Announcements
*To All Teams, *
*This is a difficult post to write, but here goes..
River City United Soccer Club regrets to inform you that the Battle of the Jack, Fall 2021 has been canceled. This is due to the fact that many of the age brackets, in both girls and boys, did not fill up as well as we anticipated.
All teams that have paid will receive a full refund of their tournament fee. If you paid using the PayPal system you will receive your refund from that system. If you mailed a check, we will return your uncashed check to you by mail. Ss compensation for your interest and efforts to participate in the Battle of the Jack, you will be emailed a $50 discount voucher that can be used for any future Battle at the Jack. *
Please note: If you have reserved hotel rooms for your team, please cancel them as soon as possible so as to not incur any cancellation fees.
River City will be reviewing the how’s and why’s as to why things turned out the way they did for our Fall tournament and we will implement changes to bolster our ability to hold successful Battles in 2022. As I mentioned earlier it is very difficult on our club’s part to have cancel the Battle. It was not an easy decision. We offer you our sincerest apologies for any inconvenience it has caused you and your teams.
Mike Remus, Tournament Director
Battle at the Jack, Fall 2021
Still waiting on Decatur Parks & Rec to tell us whether the fields at Point Mallard will be dry enough to practice on tonight. Will let you know as soon as I hear something.
This next week the 08-07 team will practice 5:30pm to 7:00pm Tuesday and Thursday at Point Mallard/Spirit of America. Both practices are mandatory, if your player is in town. At the beginning of practice Tuesday I would like to have a brief parents meeting to discuss the upcoming season. I will also have the sample uniforms with me. Any of you who have not had the opportunity can come and see what the sizing is like for your respective player.
This next week the 06-03 team will practice 7:00pm to 8:45pm Tuesday and Thursday at Point Mallard/Spirit of America. Both practices are mandatory, if your player is in town. At the beginning of practice Tuesday I will have a team meeting to discuss the upcoming season. I will also have the sample uniforms with me to allow players to see how the sizing goes.
Folks I am waiting to hear from Decatur Parks and Rec about using the fields at Point Mallard next week for practices (Tuesday and Thursday). I am bugging them, but with the 4th of July celebrations that they are dealing with, their response time is understandably slow. Will let you know as soon as I hear something, hopefully today.
