Soccer Jamboree - Aug 29th-30th
Warm-Up Tournament for Class 4 and new Class 3 Teams

SCYSL will be holding a Jamboree soccer tournament on August 29-30th, primarily for helping the new referees get some game experience before the Fall season starts.  It is primarily focused on working with Recreation (Div 4) teams, particularly U10 and under. However, if you are a newly formed Class 3 team, or you have just moved this season from Div 4 to Div 3, then this jamboree may be a good way for your team to "warm up" for the Fall season as well.

If you are interested, please contact Bob Sherman, SCYSL Referee Coordinator refs@scyouthsoccer.org. As a Class 3 comp team, you may need to do a bit of "leg work" on your own to find equal strength teams to play in the Jamboree. The event will be held at Curtis Field.
