Fall Kickoff Classic 2016 Showcases the Beautiful Roanoke Valley




Fall Kickoff Classic 2016 Showcases the Beautiful Roanoke Valley


The annual Fall Kickoff Classic was a huge success in its third year.  The preseason tournament hosted 60 teams from all over Virginia and North Carolina.  This year Region 1 and Region 3 big name clubs attended the event (CASL, Greensboro United, Old Dominion, PWSI, & VSA).  Over the course of the weekend, teams were able to prepare for their upcoming Fall season.  The fun and competitive environment helps teams to grow and develop their chemistry on and off the field.  Roanoke being located in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains, provides many outdoor activities to aide in team building.  Also, the mountains provide a picturesque background to each game. 

On Saturday August, 20th, the games kicked off early that morning.  As the teams began to play, cheers erupted from field to field with each goal scored, tackle won, and goal scoring chance created.  Food Trucks began to cook and the music of the ice cream truck began to play.  Over the course of the day, players enjoyed the beautiful game as they kicked off their seasons.  On Sunday August 21st, championships were in sights for the teams.  Trophies were claimed and medals were handed out to the victors.  The event concluded with championship pictures for each winning team. 

Valley AFC would like to thank all the teams, volunteers, parents, and vendors for an amazing event!  We look forward to hosting everyone again next year!
