Parents’ Meeting on March 11, 2015

There will be a Parents’ Meeting on March 11, 2015, for families with players registered for Spring 2015 Soccer.  The meeting will take place at 7pm in the Bellefonte High School Auditorium, 830 East Bishop St., Bellefonte, PA.  Please plan to attend!

  • Coaches and Teams will be announced
  • Practice schedules will be announced
  • Fundraiser information will be distributed

Coaches typically reach out to all team members within a week after the Parents’ Meeting. This ensures that parents who are unable to attend still receive all important information.

The first game of the Spring Season is usually the 2nd Saturday of April. Practices start a couple weeks prior (at each Coach’s discretion).  These details are usually available within a week or so after the Parents’ Meeting.

We are a volunteer-only organization! If you are interested in volunteering for any of our vacant positions please let a Board member know after the meeting.
