We’re going to try something a little different with the men’s alumni game this summer.
This year the men’s alumni game will be a scrimmage between L-C alumni and the 2021 Varsity Men’s team. The scrimmage will (tentatively) take place on Friday, August 20 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. The plan will be to have referees, a full pre-game warm-up and ceremony, and an 80-minute match.
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!
