We’re going to try something a little different with the alumni game this summer.
This year the men’s alumni game will be a scrimmage between L-C alumni and the 2020 Varsity Men’s team. The scrimmage will (tentatively) take place on Friday, August 21 at 6:30PM. This game will serve as the one allowed scrimmage for the varsity team, so it will be treated as much like a normal game as possible. That includes referees, a full pre-game warm-up and ceremony, and a full 90-minute match. We’ll have some special recognitions for the alumni who are able to attend.
There’s obviously still a lot of uncertainty about sports and our fall season, but I want to prepare as if we will have a normal season so that we’re ready if/when the time comes.
The hope is to make this a valuable experience for all involved — a quality game of soccer to prepare the varsity team for their season, an opportunity to recognize our alumni with a real game on our beautiful field under the lights, and a fun night of bringing current and former players together to celebrate the history of our program.
I’m sure we’ll learn a lot about how to run this event in future years, but for our first try at it I’m going to limit the alumni team to the first 25 players interested in participating. If we have overwhelming interest beyond that we’ll consider modifying things a bit.
So fill out the survey here to reserve your spot in the game if you’re interested! And let me know if you have any thoughts about how we can make this a great event for years to come!
