Futbol Friday: October 7

On Friday, October 7th, Eastern Pennsylvania Youth Soccer in partnership with Red Card Cancer encourages all soccer fans to wear their favorite jerseys to raise awareness for cancer research. Additionally, donations can be made online or via text message. 

Plymouth Meeting, Pa. (September 27)— Eastern Pennsylvania Youth Soccer, in partnership with Red Card Cancer, is proud to announce the second annual Futbol Friday for October 7, 2016.
 
Futbol Friday is a day to celebrate soccer and raise awareness and donations for cancer research. Eastern Pennsylvania Youth Soccer and its partners encourage everyone to wear their favorite soccer jersey on Futbol Friday, which coincides with the height of the fall season as well as Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
 
A $10 donation can be made to Red Card Cancer, a soccer-based cancer research charity, by texting “SOCCER” to 52000. Additionally, donations can be made at EPYSA.org/Events/Futbol_Friday. One-hundred percent of all proceeds will go to Red Card Cancer.
 
Last year’s inaugural event raised more than $2000 in donations. Eastern Pennsylvania Youth Soccer hopes to exceed that total this year by getting local clubs and businesses involved.
 
“Cancer has affected all of us in some way and too many from our soccer community,” said Eastern Pennsylvania Youth Soccer Chief Executive Officer Chris Branscome. “This a way for the soccer community to give back.”
 
Eastern Pennsylvania Youth Soccer will further promote the event through social media using #FutbolFriday. The association will post pictures with participants wearing their jerseys. Everyone who participates is encouraged, although it is not required, to make a minimum donation of $5.
 
Clubs, businesses and organizations interested in hosting a Futbol Friday event or partnering with Eastern Pennsylvania Youth Soccer should contact Dillon Friday at dfriday@epysa.org or by phone at 610-238-9966.

Parkland striker - keeper - Team camp

See Brochure

We are pleased to announce our sixth Striker / Keeper Camp.  Many teams do not have the resources to specifically train the goalkeepers.  Yet having a goalkeeper minding your net that is schooled on proper technique will make far more routine saves look easier and a few tougher ones look routine.

PHS GK Coach Katelyn Gristick along with recent graduates Julia Hulbert, Shannon Kriz, Becky Webster, Regan Allsop  hold or share almost all the schools goalkeeping records.  They are excited to help your child develop better goalkeeping starting positions, foot work and hand position, HEH principle, shot blocking, parrying, diving and distribution.  Current PHS HS GK’s will be there to assist Coach Gristick, Hulbert, Kriz and Webster.

No keeper’s camp is over till the GOALIE WARS CHAMPION is crowned.
