CiTY Newsletter - May 3, 2021
Happy May to our CiTY family, as we keep up the momentum of a busy CiTY spring! All travel teams have been enjoying league games, tournaments like State and President's Cups, and special events such as the adidas Festival in Richmond last weekend, which all of our CCL teams attended.

CiTY Spring 2021 REC has seen unprecedented growth as we reach the midpoint of the season, and registration is now open for CiTY Fall 2021 REC. There is also an additional opportunity for U8 boys and girls to come out and kick around with U8 Academy and Technical Director Carmen Juliano and CiTY coaches.

Spread the word - the schedule for CiTY travel team tryouts is out and registration is open! Returning and new players all need to register. Keep reading for more CiTY news and information about the weeks ahead.
As always, the CiTY Leadership team is available and welcomes questions, comments, and feedback, so don't hesitate to reach out.

Go CiTY!

CiTY 2021 Raffle Winner Announced!
Congratulations to the McManus family on winning the raffle for $10,000! With two kids playing on CiTY teams, countless hours put in to the club by the whole family on and off the field, and a desire to donate back part of their winnings, the McManuses exemplify the three pillars on which CiTY was founded--soccer people serving soccer families, development on and off the field, and serving all levels. Congratulations to the McManus family and thanks to the whole CiTY community for participating in this important fundraising effort.
