Their parents found that high-level soccer training can at the same time include a high level of fun for their daughters.   Contact coach Rob DeMartinis at 215-499-7569 or use this form to contact us.   Girls born between August 1, 1996  and July 31, 1997 (or up to 1 year younger in special situations) can be considered for  tryouts this spring so contact us soon.

2009 Schillinger Soccer Tournament

November 25th, 2009 No comments

Once again the HV Thunder are heading  to the Schillinger Thanksgiving Weekend Tournament at Parkwood.  As has been the case for the last couple of years, the weather forecast is – at least for Friday – cold and miserable with a 100% chance of suffering.  What a tradition.  Players always have fun once they are able to get moving. Parents on the other hand will merely suffer. The weather will slowly improve through the weekend.
