An End to the Fall...

October 18th, 2021
Can you believe we are already at the end of the Fall season!? It has been a very exciting Fall for us all, and even though it is coming to and end, so much more is about to start. We are very proud of all our teams, and their accomplishments this season. It has been great to have a full Fall and be able to see all our teams grow. We have many updates, and upcoming news, so make sure you read our latest newsletter in full.

October Fun Fact: October babies are more likely to live to 100 than those born in many other months! Scientists think this might be because they aren't born in a harsh winter or summer when people are more likely to get sick.

Junior Academy

We want to congratulate the 100+ 2018 – 2013 boys and girls that completed the Fall Junior Academy Program. Director Hannah Gallagher and her staff have graduated another special class, and many of these players will be starting their first seasons with SCOR, this coming Spring!

MSYSA State Cup
Congratulations to the 2008 Girls Black and 2007 Girls Black on their great runs in State Cup. The 2008 Girls lost in a crazy PK shootout in the Quarterfinals, and the 2007 Girls lost in a very good game 1-2 to the eventual State Cup Champions in the Semi-Finals. We are very proud of all the girls’ efforts, and we congratulate Coach Lizzie and Coach Erwin for getting the girls so far.

Super Y National Finals
Congratulations to the 2007 Boys Black, and Coach Grant Oosse, on qualifying for the 2021 Super Y League National Finals, in Tampa, FL. Just before the December holiday break, the team will spend a week competing for a National Championship. We wish Coach Grant and the boys, the very best!

New Partnerships
Cedar Rock

SCOR is excited to announce that we have partnered with Cedar Rock Sportsplex. This partnership will most importantly allow better control of time and dates for team training, camps, Junior Academy, and programs to be announced. This ensures SCOR players gain more time on the turf. We also, will be running leagues and rentals at the complex, that will further keep Cedar Rock as an essential location in our community, and further grow our Club.

West Michigan Futsal Alliance
SCOR’s futsal program has grown massively since it first started just a few years ago. Now with 31 teams, the most in this new Alliance, SCOR takes a new step forward with the futsal program. SCOR’s futsal program is built around using futsal, with its fast-paced play, highly focused foot skill usage, and small-sided game model, as a tool to develop better soccer players. Past leagues have not been the best for our players, and we have taken the great feedback from our families and made a change. Partnering with EDGE, Rapids FC, PASS FC, and MI Fire Juniors, we have created a brand-new league. With success the league will expand in the future. This league will play out from November to February. Each team will play 10 games. SCOR will also participate in the MSA Futsal Cup Feb 4th – 6th. League games will be scheduled like our outdoor leagues, at home and away venues. With 100 teams, divisions will be large, diverse, and competitive. We are so excited for the future of our futsal program, and the growth of the league. Follow WMFA League on Facebook and Instagram
