The 2nd Annual Fall Kickoff Classic is located in Roanoke, VA. The tournament provides teams the ability to get ready for Fall league play with an exciting weekend of soccer. All teams (U10-U19) are guaranteed a minimum of 3 games.
Roanoke is nestled in Virginia's Blue Ridge Mountains and filled with friendship and old-fashioned hospitality. Between games, discover what makes visiting Roanoke unique!
Please Check-in at least one hour before your first game.
You will need:
1. Two copies of your USYS State Association or US Club approved roster
2. Player passes for every participating player
3. Medical releases for every participating player. Please use VYSA's medical release if you don't have them:
4. Guest players and information added to the bottom of the roster being submitted
5. A copy of the state association's permission to travel for teams traveling outside of Region I.
You will find the Valley AFC staff and tournament volunteers housed at the Merriman Complex Pavilion if you have any questions over the course of the weekend - this also is where you will check in your team.
Please tell your families that it is best to park in the lots closest to their playing field. There is a separate lot for Merriman 1,2 and 3, Merriman 4 and Merriman 5.
A field map with directions can be found here>>
Housed in the small parking lot in the Merriman 1, 2 and 3 location you will find our vendors. For those interested there will be food, drink and t-shirts for sale. There will also be a table showing off and taking orders for a new style of protective headband called 2nd Skull. Smaller and more pleasing to the eye than the old style head protection - it even comes in a multitude of colors! Those interested will find the vendor's flyer attached.
If you cannot find something to your liking, we are just minutes away from the Tanglewood Mall area of Roanoke.
