Public Open House Meeting on the Truman Wilson Park, Monday 5/4

We need as many soccer parents as possible to stop in tomorrow, Monday, May 4th at the Christiansburg Rec Center and share their support for multi-purpose fields.   Soccer is the biggest of the recreational sports in Montgomery County, and we need more multi-purpose fields.  In fact 3 of the 4 largest outdoor youth sports need multipurpose fields: soccer, football, and lacrosse.
We are in no way trying to minimize the need for baseball/softball fields, but would ask that 3/4 of the field space be used for multipurpose fields that can be used for soccer, football, and lacrosse.  Please see the message below and try to stop in to the open house next Monday.   If you bring your child, please have them wear their CSC shirt.

Christiansburg Soccer Club
Good Afternoon
I hope you all are doing well.  I wanted to send you an email making you aware of a Public Open House Meeting on the Truman Wilson Park.  This meeting will take place on Monday, May 4th from 4-6pm at the Christiansburg Recreation Center.  You do not have to be here for the entire 2 hours but you can simply stop by share your visions and ask questions in just a few minutes of time.  I ask that you make this a priority as this is going to help build the community for the future.  Please don’t let this opportunity pass by.  This is the perfect opportunity to let our consultants know what soccer, lacrosse and most importantly recreation means to you and what we need from a recreational perspective for the future as we grow our community.  I know from looking at the field schedules recently most of our fields in the community are very busy and many times completely booked up.  This is that opportunity to understand our Parks and Recreation Master Plan that was completed last fiscal year and move forward with the shaping of the Truman Wilson Park Master Plan as we prepare for the future.  I have attached a flyer for your viewing.  I hope to see you on Monday, May 4th between 4-6p at the Recreation Center.
Help Us Help You, Help Us Help the Community Too!
Thanks Brad

Field update: 4/9/15

As of today, Thursday April 9th, we have closed GSBC to all games – rec and BRSL – and most practices, until further notice. CPS2 will open for limited games this weekend and will hopefully open to all games beginning next weekend. CPS1 remains closed. All other fields are open at this time.

Updates to field conditions will be posted as quickly as possible. You can view the status of fields by clicking on Current Field Status in the top right corner of our website. Field locations and directions  can be found under the Recreation and Travel & Academy tabs.

Game Day 3/28: PreK & U8 Games Cancelled

The PreK and U8 games have been cancelled for today. U10, U13, and U18 will play as scheduled.

PreK games have been re-scheduled to this Tuesday evening at 6:00 p.m. on field CMS1, Christiansburg Middle School, field closest to the parking lot. 1205 Buffalo Drive, Christiansburg

We will look to re-schedule the U8 games.

For divisions that are still playing today, please dress appropriately for the weather.

Game plan update: 3/27 & 3/28

We are planning to play all games as scheduled tonight and tomorrow.

Kindergarten games this evening will be in the upper 40s but the rain is expected to stop here shortly. Please dress players appropriately for the weather, in multiple layers, if necessary. Long-sleeves and jackets can be worn under team jerseys. Pants, hats, and gloves are permitted.

Saturday games will be considerably colder and possibly a bit wet. Have players dressed for those conditions – long-sleeves and jackets can be worn under team jerseys, pants, hats, and gloves are permitted – and we advise parents to do the same since sitting on the sideline requires much less energy than running around playing. If you feel that it is too cold for your child to play tomorrow, please contact your coach to let them know your player will not be available for the game. Coaches, if you find yourself too short-handed for a game, please contact me as soon as possible — we may have to combine teams.

We have confirmation from NRU that they plan to play tomorrow. If you are scheduled to play on a NRU field tomorrow, please check their website, www.newriverunited.com, after 7am to see if their field conditions have changed and they had to close fields.

Game Day 3/21

Happy, muddy, Game Day!

All CSC game fields are open and all games will be played as scheduled. Morning U8 games on CPS have been adjusted, please check your schedule for the revised time.

NRU rec and travel fields are closed. Any rec inter-league game scheduled on their fields has been cancelled.

Field Update: 3/20

CMS 1, 2, 3 are CLOSED, CHS Band field is CLOSED

All other fields are open for practices and games this evening and will remain open for games tomorrow.

Conditions are not ideal. The ground is very soft and some areas are quite muddy. No one is allowed to practice in the goal boxes. Coaches, if planning to use goals for practice, please arrive on the field 10 minutes prior to your team and safely move the goals to another location.
